This is the very rough outline of my flat:
+----------+ |Bedroom | W \ +---+----------+ |Ba |Living |lc |room |on | |y | +---+----------+
There is no window on the living room just the sliding balcony door. The only window is in the bedroom (the kitchen connecting to the living room and the bathroom are totally windowless). I could buy a portable AC unit to make at least the bedroom bearable but how could I get the air from the bedroom into the living room? Cutting a duct sized hole in the drywall is possible of course but gosh it'd be very ugly.
If I got a long enough duct extension (I found a twenty feet one), would it work with a portable AC? I could put a 14000 BTU unit in the tiny entranceway next to the bedroom door so it would cool both rooms.
I have thought of putting a water cooled air conditioner in the kitchen but a) I have no idea where to buy one in Vancouver, BC b) in light of Montreal just banning them what's the chance they are legal.
