    No. Other options include units designed for casement windows which are tall and narrow, use a through the wall A/C, or using a split system A/C.

NO! would not drain correctly for starters - would leak H2O everywhere.

I cannot get my temp down to 58 but stays at 68


What is the BTU rating of the unit and what size space are you trying to cool down? Air conditioners move heat from one area to another. Possible reasons for not achieving the temperature you want are 1) the air conditioner you are using is too small to cool the size room you have or 2) the space where you are trying to exhaust the hot air from the air conditioner is too hot to allow your air conditioner to move enough heat out of the room you are trying to cool.

My landlord installed this brand new out of the box. Our apt is 900 sq ft tops. This unit can't even cool down our living room and kitchen. If the whole 2 bedroom apt is 900 sq ft, you can imagine how...


The AC your landlord installed is rated at 8000 btu which is way too small for 900 sq ft. You need at least a 15000 Btu Air conditioner and a 'well insulated' house to be cool.
A good rule of thumb in the AC business says you need 1 ton (12000 btu) of Air conditioning for every 600 sq feet (if the house is well insulated) - if not - then you will need 1 ton (12000 btu) for every 400 sq feet.
So, if you have 900 sq feet and the house is well insulated you should have at least a 15000 btu unit.
If it's not well insulated you will need 24,000 btu.

I want to buy portable air conditioner, but the buyer said that i need put the exhaust tube near a window open to expel hot air, in my room not have windows


You do have to use the exhaust tube, would need to put a hole in your wall. Also, these units really generate a lot of heat. We tried one, it almost seems as if it actually makes the room hotter! You would be better off buying a small regular unit, constructing a hole in the wall to the outside.
If you absolutely cannot do the hole, you could get an extension to the exhaust tubing and maybe use a window in another room?

Air intake via hose & window or intake from room only?


Hello artrey3 The answer is yes, BUT the unit will be exausting room/basement air outside ruining any efficency the unit is rated for.Also you will need makeup/fresh air in the basement. The unit exausting air can put the basement in a vacuum/negitive pressure pulling in air from the chimney!

Can I install the unit in the window sideways?


Not really unless you can divertthe hot air from the back side to the outside and and the cool air and intake to the inside, you could do it with some clear tape and some plastic sheeting , but better to build a frame to hold it outside facing in two L brackets then tape it up with some thick plastic.

Unbalanced cooling or heating


You need to balance the system. It's a matter of adjusting the dampers or registers so that you have a little less air flow near the T-stat and more to the other end of the house. Likely you have a return vent near the T-stat. That return draws air to it and likewise the T-stat. If you are getting a lot of air out of the registers on that end of the house damper them to force more air to the other end of the house. Do not close them entirely though. You may have to play with it a little to get it right. I hope this helps. Please remember to rate Fixya rate me.
