I plan on using a portable 2 hose AC like this - https://www.amazon.com/Whynter-Portable-Conditioner-Heater-ARC-14SH/dp/B002W87P9C?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0
Have a look at the comparisons halfway down the page and you can get units that use only 1040 watts.
Thanks for the link. I have used a single hose A/C unit, and it pulled air from inside the room through the coil and then blew the hot air out of the hose. This does not seem as efficient as it could be since the air blown out of the hose needs to be replaced somehow by air coming in from outside the room.
Does the two hose system pull outside air in through one hose, through the condenser, and then blow the hot air out the second hose? In this case no outside air would be pulled in except for the amount being pulled in and run through the condenser and pushed out. This is my hope, but so far I have not been able to confirm.
It also seems this could be run on a 2000w generator which would be great.
I was thinking about the split units as well, but if the condenser cannot be mounted outside for whatever reason, then this kind of defeats the purpose.
Good luck, I look forward to hearing how well it works!
