I Need a Small Room Air Conditioner That I Can Mount in the Wall and Not a Window.?
I would think your problem is that the unit is not deep enough to protrude beyond your wall and the air flow is obstructed. When we had this dilemma, I cut the hole larger than needed and then framed down with plywood and lumber to a small opening for the unit. This way we could use the smaller unit. The smaller 5200 btu units are widely available.1. What would happen if you install a room air conditioner not in a window?It's going to drip water all over the floor2. I have just converted a room with a gas fire in to a bedroom. Is it acceptable to leave the fire & Cap off Gas?I do not quite understand your question but i do know that most areas do not allow a gas heater in a bedroom that uses room air for combustion3. Do you get your own room in the Air Force?That totally depends on the availability of rooms at that duty station, and on your rank. "Moving to a 11" means EVENTUALLY, not right now, today. Most E-1 to E-4 people have one roommate. Most bases require you live on base, unless you have a dependent, until you are an E-4 or E-5. Officers rarely have roommates, and most often have the 11 concept. The upshot is, I would not count on a room of your own at this point in time.4. Calculating room air exchange, Please Help!?1280 cuft / 5 cuft/min = 1280/5 min =256 min However, that is only nominally a complete air change. The incoming air will mix with the room air. Think CSTR [continuous stirred tank reactor]5. Does patellofemoral pain syndrome qualify for handicapped parking?It is not based on conditions, it's based on inability to walk. Each state has their own requirements. look up your Department of transportation - it's usually in the plate section. Here's my states requirements: "Applicant must have one or more of the following conditions: unable to walk 200 feet without stopping to rest; unable to walk without assistance from another person or from a brace, cane, crutch, wheelchair or other prosthetic or assistive device; lung disease with forced respiratory, expiratory volume for one second, if measured by spirometry, is less than one liter, or the arterial oxygen tension is less than 60 mm/hg on room air at rest; uses portable oxygen; cardiac condition with Class 3 or 4 functional limitations as by American Heart Association standards; or severely limited in ability to walk due to an arthritic, neurological or orthopedic condition."6. how difficult would it be to remove a room air conditioner that was put into a wall space?CHeck the unit. sometimes it can be able to slide out easily7. The most efficient way to heat a room? Air conditioner or electric resistance heater?"Air conditioning the outside", is what a heat pump is. Although, keep in mind, that the physical equipment of an air conditioner will not really be designed to do this efficiently and safely, compared to an actual heat pump that is designed to work both ways. You usually need a lot more air filtration on the interior air stream, and an air conditioner's outdoor heat exchanger does not have this. Worst case scenario, a heat pump operates at the same efficiency of an electric heater, with a COP (coefficient of performance) of unity. That is to say, as much electricity as is consumed, becomes the heat put in to heating the room. COP is similar to efficiency, in that it is what we want divided by what we pay for. It differs from efficiency, because efficiency usually refers to quantities where "what we want" comes out of the system, and "what we pay for" goes in to the system, and all of "what we want" must come from "what we pay for". The idea of COP is that it is a more generalized concept of efficiency. Most heat pumps will be better than that, because what they do is suck heat out of the cold background and "blow" it in to the room. More heat enters the room than is sucked out of the background, because all of the work energy that was used to operate the compressor "joins it". Heat pumps are not as common as you would think, because it is usually a better idea to just burn the original fuel where you plan on using it. Ultimately, the electricity that operates a heat pump, will come from a fuel burning power plant, and that also has a heat rejection component to it. You might as well take advantage of that too. That is why, depending on relative prices of fuel and electrical energy, it is common to have a combustion method of heating, and a heat pump method of cooling, with the heat pump method of cooling exclusively designed for refrigeration. If electricity is particularly cheap in your region, that is when you might want to consider a heat pump instead of a fuel burning furnace. And this ends up being the case, if you live in an isolated region, that is difficult to which to drive a tank of propane, or to run a gas pipe. Electricity is usually the most efficient method for transporting energy long distances, so if the consumption of a more ordered energy source pays for itself in saved transport costs, it can be an advantage to use a heat pump instead of a furnace.
