Can I mount a window unit with no outside access

I have and attic room with an inside wall to the rest of the attic. I want to cool the attic room but don't want to cut a hole in the outside wall. Can I mount a widow unit with the outside portion in an enclosed area if I maintain a drip pan for the condensation?

You could/can, but don't forget that (a) there is a good chance of heavy condesation, so size pan appropriately, or drain...and (b) The enclosed space where the drip pan is, is going to get quite warm. Hope this helps

Our wall mounted air con is set at 16 degrees but it is not cooling the house at this temp. Could it be the thermostat

most wall mounted ac units are designed to only cool a room, not a house
close all the doors to the room along with all windows
generally a 3kw unit (32,000btu )will cool a room 12ft X 12 ft X 9 ft quickly but anything bigger, the time that is taken to bring the temp down gets longer and longer depending on the setting and 16 C is far too low

I just fininsh a room in the attic and I want to put a baseboard electric heater. which is the best way to run the wire from the attice to basement? Thanks

Wow - You're looking at quite the job!! The wire needs to be protected inside the walls or at the least inside conduit along the outside of the house - but that wouldn't be too pretty. I suggest getting yourself an Electricians fishtape ( if you don't already have one ) and choose a point either inside a closet or in a visually hidden location you can drill through the floors and the walls to fish your romex through. If all walls are sheetrock, you may have to literally cut a channel into the wall ( use a good metal detector to find existing electric and plumbing so you can miss those ) , bury the wire, and backfill with plaster or sheetrock mud. Either way, have patience - it is a long road you're going down. The easiest way ( not the prettiest, or necessarily legal in your area ) is to run some conduit vertically along the outside of the building and fish your wire into it. Get some wiresnot to help reduce friction and simplify the pulling of the wire in the conduit.Punch your hole through the basement and attic walls and make sure you seal those holes real good with silicone. Check first with your local city and or county building code enforcement office for the legality of externally mounted conduit / wire.
Hope this helps!

It is freezing inside, and it is not cooling properly

Welcome to FixYa,
Check the Following
Is your filter clean? Look and the evaporator in the inside unit. Is it frosted up? Do you have condensation water in the pan? Go to the outside unit and feel the air coming out of the fan. Is it warm? Now feel the 2 copper pipes coming out of the unit. Is the small one warm or hot? Is the larger one cool ? Is there moisture on it?
Air conditioner runs but doesn't cool at all
If the airflow is good and the air coming out is not cold, your home air conditioning problem may be a temporary problem - your coils may have frozen. Turn the unit off for an hour to let them thaw, then try again. If cold air is now present, freezing coils were the problem; if the problem recurs soon after turning on, you may need to replace the coils. Again, call a pro. If you have ceiling vents in upstairs rooms and the air flowing from them is consistently warm, you probably have leaky or poorly insulated ductwork in your attic. See my Attic ceiling insulation page for more information on insulating ductwork that runs through attics.
Another likely home air conditioning problem if you have good airflow but no cooling is that thebreaker to the outside unit is shut off, which, depending on the installation, can either cause the air conditioning system to not run at all, or to appear to be running but not provide any cooling. If you can hear the compressor fan running outside, the breaker is on, but if the outside unit is silent the outside breaker may be off. If switching it on does not solve the problem, look for the high pressure cut outon the condenser and try resetting that.

Air condition jsut 10 month old ... not keeping up whith cooling

If it's only 92° outside and the unit won't cool the house, then the unit is either to small or it's low on refrigerant. They are designed to cool a house with outdoor temperatures up to 115° to 120°.Usually you need one ton a/c for every 400 square feet of house, but, you have to take into account for average outdoor temperature and humidity, windows, doors, especially sliding glass or patio doors and which side of the house they are on, insulation in walls and attic.
The air leaving your duct work going into the rooms should be about 20° lower than the room temperature, if you have a 80° room then the air leaving the duct should be around 60°. if it is then the unit is probably to small if, everything is working properly.

Just purchased a home and was never told where the air filter is

Well if it not in the boot looking thing coming off the side of the furnace then it is most likely inside the furnace.

Water dripping from air con use

If the unit is mounted on an outside wall check the condensate drain that comes out with the line-set to the outdoor unit. If the pipping goes up into the attic than you have a small condensate pump that may have failed. The float in the pump may have stuck in the down position not allowing the pump to come on.

My Kenmore 72059 unit is blowing cold air but is not cooling the room (the room is not the big either). It is set at 60 degrees. Why is the room not getting cool?

Physics, friend.
Ideally any cool input would be enough to effect the temperature, but other things are working against you.
Check the air filter behind the case cover and clean it if necessary. This may improve your air flow. While you have the cover off, look at the coils, and make sure that they aren't iced up or plugged. During peak humidity periods or when the refrigerant level is low, icing can occur. If you have a recirculating/outside air option, try to partially select outside air. In a well sealed room, with the selection of 100% recirculation, moisture can build up in the room. By setting it on 60, you may be asking it to do more than it is physically capable of.Dirt generally just happens, but can be cleaned. Provided that all's well that you have checked, look for other cool-robbing sources. Windows can be a huge source of heat gain in a room, particularly those that receive late afternoon sun. Light colored blinds reflect some of the heat, Other factors that can affect your heat gain might include openings or cracks around windows and doors, and the state of your insulation in your walls and attic. Assess your area for leakers and hit the biggest offenders first. You can do a rough assessment to locate heat gain with your hands by moving around the room and feeling for heat. Significant amounts of heat can be felt by touching the walls, ceiling, etc. Open vents can have a profound effect. If you have a fireplace, is the damper closed? That sort of thing. All things to consider.
Hope that this has been useful to you.

An air conditioner of this type always has standing water sitting in the base-tray of the machine as it's running. They're designed to work that way. However, if the unit leans slightly in toward the inside of your house, then the water in the tray can be deeper than it should and/or add extra humidity to the inside air. These units are designed to be installed so that they lean slightly to the _outside_ of the window or wall-hole where they are mounted. This way the standing water drains off to the ground outside and isn't so deep on the inside of the unit that it adds too much humidity to the inside air. Check the mounting of this unit to make sure it leans slightly toward the outside. Also verify that any notch or drain hole on the outside end of the unit, intended to guide draining water, is not clogged with debris (which could also cause the standing water in the unit to be at too high a level). Also verify that the "vent" is closed, if this unit is equipped with said vent opening. An open vent panel can allow humid outside air inside as the unit is running. Hope this helps! ;)
