A dedicated air cleaner would but better but even if you have one, it is a good idea to put extra filtration on the AC as well. Just make sure that you seal around the filter well enough that no dust gets by the filter. When it starts getting clogged, the air will try to bypass the filter. Each time you clean the filter, take a look at the coil and make sure it is clean as well. I periodically use a foaming coil cleaner on my portable AC unit to remove at least some of the dust that gets by the filter. Unfortunately, I have to remove the cover to do that but after I do, it does seem to cool better.
