Air Conditioner Questions
 
I have a small ranch house. The kitchen/dining room has one window above the sink and a sliding glass door. The living room has a large bow window and the front door. I have a spare bedroom with two windows and the master bedroom has a single window. Would it be possible to put in a large AC in my bedroom to cool my entire house? If not what other options would I have? Thanks.

Hi,

HVAC forum might be better for install and sizing tips...

Not -normally- as cold air hates to go around corners.....even with fans.

might be possible, My dad's old 2 story farm house used to be cooled using 2 window air conditioners. We had one out in the hallway upstairs and one in the dining room downstairs. It kept the house pretty cool.

Whoops didn't notice the HVAC forum, can a moderator move this? Sorry about that.

A common area to some rooms is seen working ok....cooling one room and trying to cool other rooms often doesn't....JMO!
