Thanks Erik. Initial test seem satisfactory. Since cool air naturally sinks, and warm air rises, the temperature inside depends on elevation, as it seems there is as much as a 10 degree difference between the floor and ceiling. Since the unit is so low, it recirculates the cooler air instead of drawing in warm air and generating cool air as a ceiling unit would do. I think a small fan to direct some cool air upwards would help a lot during the day. At night, probably not needed since we're just 2' off the floor. At night is when we need A/C the most, as during the day we're outside swimming, hiking or biking anyway.
I will give real-world results when I am able to test in the field, but right now, that may not be until next summer!
