r2d2 a/c's are cool in certain situations. most importantly look at rez size in the ac.
how big is the catch bucket? cuz its another thing to check/overfill.
ive seen ones with a lift pump in the unit so you could pump to a barrel. or to drain.
you need more air flow in room. it pulls thru unit and out the back as hot exhaust.
the exhaust needs to be scrubbed/ozoned. or do a set up like air cooled hoods on the a/c. a sealed run if you will.
they work, but just bring up a whole other set of issues to address.
i snagged one from overstock.com...1200 btu, carbon filter built into the intake vents,,,claims no need to dump any water out but in the event i do ill just raise the unit and simply place a bucket under the dump .....ended up using a y splitter to just dump the exhaust to the lights and out the main dump,,,its no longer hot :rastabanana:
i never had any issues with smell via a window unit brotha then again it wasnt tech in my flower booth it was in my veg/smoke room buuut that room smelt just as strong to worse at times esp harvest time,,,if you got an exhaust with a filter allready in place your solid imho
i want to install a window unit in a 1800watt 4x8 tent thats inside an uninsulated garage. any advice or ideas on how i could expell the hot air? my only other option would be a mini split? i have a 9000 btu portable ac that i set up outside the tent and ducted air into the tent...causes the tent to balloon from too much positive pressure. im running an open system and am anxious to go sealed....HELP!!! please.
