I'm going to take advantage of some Memorial Day sales and pull the trigger on a portable AC unit for my "basement-ish" (bottom of windowsill is mid chest, rather than head height) apartment. Before I do this, however, I've been researching online, and I want to make sure that I don't buy something that's going to overload the electric circuit it'll be connected to.
For the bedroom, the breaker indicates 15 Amps. The circuit will additionally have a desktop computer, two LCD displays, and a couple of lights. How can I tell if a new AC unit plus the existing items is going to cause tripped breakers or worse?
