Some of you may remember my old desk and office. Scary and sad, but I had a nice new machine. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br>Well, I've graduated to a MUCH nicer office and desk.<br><br><br><br>The only problem is that the room is still quite small and here in Vegas it gets really hot (that is also a west-facing window). I really want (read: need) to put a small AC unit in this room, but the windows are horizontal. So, unless I want to completely change the windows in the room I don't think I can use a window unit, right? Or is there another way to do it??<br><br>If not, I am going to have to cut a hole in the damn wall to put one in. <br><br>
Some questions<br><br>1 - Do you own or rent ? if renting get permission first<br>2 - Is this a house or apartment ? If apartment get association approval first<br><br>That window looks like a slider ? if so a window unit is not an option.<br>If that widow is single hung then a window unit is the way to go.<br><br>1 - Option<br>Get a stand up unit <-- not that great but for installation all you need to do is install a "dryer vent" outside exterior wall - Boom ya done.<br><br>2 - Option<br>Get a Wall Unit like this one Panasonic with remote , 6,000 BTU is all you need<br>Install unit in line with "top" of window NOT below<br>My suggested location is top right - yes move the picture to the other side.<br><br>Do you need complete installation instruction ?<br><br>
My girlfriend has a small office and she bought a small portable.....<br>She bought her's at Wallmart...under $400....some others are listed here, moblie airconditioner Just a thought,I have them every once in awhile <br><br>
Yes, it is a house and we own it. Yes, the window slides horizontally, so looks like a window unit is not the best option.<br><br>Ooohhhh, the "standing units" sound cool Carp and Bird, but I don't think even the photo does justice to just how small this room is (how do you think I talked my wife into giving me the whole room ). There just isn't anywhere to put something on the ground. The wall to the right of the desk goes to the garage, so that is out. The only wall to the outside is the one with the window on it and the desk has eaten all the floor space.<br><br>I like the look of the Panasonic, Carp. I think it will have to be a cut 'n paste job into the wall. Fortunately my brother-in-law is a superintendent with a construction company. I don't know squat about this stuff. If I stock up on the right beer I can probably lure him over here. <br><br>
Yeah I have one at home not that great<br><br>btw;<br>Due to mold, mildew, Legionaries disease yada yada..<br>Most manufactures are dropping production on all Wall Units. I believe that GE has already stopped, Panasonic has plans to stop production in the near future. In a few years Wall Units will be a thing in the past.<br><br>Central air, split systems and Stand Ups will still be sold<br><br>
Mold? Mildew? Let's see those little suckers try to live out here. I can hardly believe how much drier it is here than even Arizona was. Its desiccating. After a rain a few weeds will crop up in the rocks here. Sometimes I don't even bother to pull them. They just dry out and blow away...<br><br>After staring at the ones in Bird's link, I'm now starting to wonder about these portable standing ones. Maybe, if its small enough, I can put it to the left of the desk and just to the left of the window. It would sure be nice to just cut a small vent in the wall instead of a big, square hole.<br><br>
