Unfortunately for the time being, my whole first floor is cooled by a single portable air conditioner and "cleverly" (if that word can even be used here...) placed fans to help move the cool air around the floor space.
I don't know the specifications of the air conditioner right now but I'm sure it's not meant for the square footage of the floor.
But that aside, I'm trying to keep the air conditioner centralized in the house by keeping it in my dining room. Because the exhaust hose is short (about 4 ft), it's anchored close to my window and the AC doesn't have much wiggle room from the walls. I also have my dining room table sitting right next to it which I'm sure doesn't help.
What I'd like to know is if I can place another fan about a foot behind the AC unit to help push warmer air into the fans intake. Is this helpful? Is it dangerous? Will it even do a dang thing? Any advice is appreciated...it's hot! =(
