As summer rears it's hot and humid head here in the deep south, once again, my thoughts turn toward some sort of air conditioning
for my Lite*House. I've thought of a few ideas including replacing the front "emergency escape" window with plywood and a small window unit or cutting a hole in the wall below that window and hanging one there.
I don't like the idea of losing that light
and the smallest window AC I can find is about 5000 btu; overkill for my tiny trailer.
Some folks have suggested "swamp" coolers but I don't think they would work too well in the humid south.
I've found units as small as 1000 btu that are made for telecommunication equipment racks but they are designed for indoor use and mount opposite of what I'm looking for.
Recently, I came across this little unit in a big box catalog: Shop for American Comfort Worldwide 1,000 BTU Personal Air Conditioner - ACW100 at The Home Depot
. I'm thinking that it might be possible to mount one of these in the space where my icebox currently sits. Of course, I'd have to add an exterior vent and perhaps a fan, but it looks like it might work.
Any thoughts, suggestions or reality checks?
