Ac unit without window reddit.
Without knowing measurements my advice is one high btu window unit if the rooms connect or 2 smaller window units for each room and keep the thermostats realistic.
Window units are usually the better play for residential users.
It seems like if i install the unit it will be resting a lot of weight on that one small strip in front which probably isn t a great idea.
I hear good ish things about the whynter units mentioned in the thread.
Put in a mid size window ac say 7000btu and then get a nice fan to blow that air where you need it.
Air conditioners just aren t built like they used to be.
Also dont knock the power of a fan.
Over the past 6 years or so i have been using three of these lg 8000 btu unit.

A small window ac unit uses about 500 watts but a central air unit uses about 4500 watts.
It gets quite humid and sometimes really hot on the east coast during the summer.
Do a search for casement window air conditioner they make skinny ones that are for side opening windows.
I think you could cut some plywood to fit it.
That being said if window units are not an option there are better units than others in the room air conditioner world.
Installing window ac without screws.
The real question is why would you.
Versus a true portable air conditioner two hose unit or units with a condenser.
I ve used window units in more side opening windows than up and down ones just due to bad luck with houses.
If it is a good quality unit and if it is well maintained and has a capable circuit to it with sound connections.
We just got an ac for the window as it s freaking hot without one and want to know how we can get it safely installed without screwing it into the frame.
Then yes you can run it non stop for the daylight hours every day.
