Can you use a temporary/portable unit?


I have a 10k BTU portable that I use at home in case of power outages.  It’s in my storage place on Waters.


If you can run the exhaust out of a window and have a floor drain for the condensate, I can lend it to you guys till you get a new permanent one installed.


It runs on 110v @ 15 amps.

You can get an 8k window unit for about $125 at Lowes/Home Depot. An 11.5k unit would require 240V.

Still dealing with this?  Sorry, just noticed the email to the group.


Do we have to buy a 208v-capable unit in that case?  Most units I find easily do 115V natively, not sure how this works for A/C unit power supplies/transformers.


Like this one .. a cheap 8k BTU 115V from Global for about $226.  (https://www.globalindustrial.com/p/hvac/air-conditioning/window-wall/window-air-conditioner-8000-btu-cool-energy-star-115v) It's under 24x24 so one of these (or something better) should work.

Ac unit has seized up in Tampa per Erron.  He unplugged it and it's about 90f
in the room now.

We need to get a replacement in there ASAP.  The installed unit was 8000 BTU
and it ran 24x7 keeping it cool in there.  I've been looking and we may want
to size up to a replacement, and there is 208v right by the unit if we want to
do that.

Our limiting factor is the 24x24 inch opening in the wall.
