Default 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.

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