Any tips for setting up a portable air conditioner when you have casement windows?

Asked by Jude (32112points) June 6th, 2009

That’s all that I have. No central air up here and your window air conditioners obviously won’t work. It’s hotter than hades up in my apartment during the summer.

I have this sort of thing where the window opens outward.

I knew Costco had several portable non-window mounted units but only this one shows the vent hoses mounted vertically in a window. Nevertheless, I suspect this one won’t work with your type window and I have a hard time picturing a vent housing that would work. You may need to remove one of your swing out windows and put in a fixed pane to cover the opening. Those are beautiful windows but they sure are problematic for your desired system. Good luck to you…wtf
