| I have a daughter with Breast Cancer coming home to visit in PA. She is | concerned that because she is bald and has to wear a scarf all the time, | that she will be too hot. So, we are looking at AC for her. My question | is. If we get this 15000 +100 BTU window AC, only place we have to put | is in a window, with no electric plug near. Would it hurt to use a Heavy | Duty extension cord?
Have a look at "stand alone" or "stand up" A/C units. They usually can move around a bit (some have wheels). They will need two air tubes to a window or vent to dump the hot air. Better ones will also take the water that condenses on the coils and pass it into the hot air to dump it out via the air (otherwise you will also need a water drain or have to empty a pan regularly). Anyway, such a unit might work near windows that otherwise could not accept a window unit A/C.
You might also consider the installation of a "mini-split" A/C system. This is a "permanent" type installation of a room size A/C. Part is inside and part is outside. These are actually the most common type of A/C system in the world these days, as they work well for homes with no central air ducting system. It will cost more, but the benefit might be worth it.
