So, Mrs JD can't sleep unless the bedroom is the temperature bordering on absolute zero.
A couple of years back, a coworker of hers had a husband who owned and A/C company. They had an old Sanyo portable A/C unit in the garage that was just collecting dust & during an exceptionally hot PNW summer ( if there is such a thing ) she just gifted it to us.
The thing has been great, especially since about 3% of the homes up here actually have central air. This summer we have had some very hot, for us, weather. The A/C is on it's last leg and since it was free, it certainly doesn't owe me anything.
So, I am looking at replacing it and I figure I need about 13,000-14,000 BTU unit for the master bedroom according to all the sizing charts.
I am looking at a Haier, an Edgestar EXTREME and Whynter Eco Friendly model ( tax break in Washington ).
So, I was wondering if anyone had any experiences with this units, or can recommend a really kick ass portable version ( I simply must have the ability to close and secure the window should we leave for the weekend or something so the permanent window mount is out ) I would love to hear about it.
Ideally I would like a unit that will go down to around 62 or so degrees, as that seems to induce the heaviest slumber in our house.
Thanks in Advance!
