I need to install a window ac unit into a room without a window, so my idea is to vent into either the bathroom or the living room. I can't use the central AC at night (and there is no solution for this). So just accept this is the only solution left.
I can't move, which would solve the problem. I can't cut a large square hole in the wall to install a permanent window unit through the wall, because the outside wall is concrete and I am renting.
A mini split is too expensive and I'm not allowed to drill a hole in the wall anyway.
My room is a difficult room. This room has a sliding glass door which opens on the OUTSIDE, so I cannot just crack open the door to install a window or portable AC unit, or anyone can just walk in.
Here's the unusual sliding door instead of a window, no way to block it. It opens outside along the exterior wall, as shown.
So the idea is that I install a window unit inside of my interior doorway, and build a door frame to hold the window ac unit, so the door will open and close like a normal door. Or, I can just buy another same door for $50 and cut a hole in it to mount the AC unit.
The problem, then, comes with which room to vent it to, and how to do it.
If I vent into my bathroom, it will be easier to drain the ac directly into my sink, and I can leave on the vent fan all night to vent the heat and humidity. If needed I can also run a dehumidifier.
If I vent into the living room, I could also install another window unit in the living room to vent the hot air from my room outside. I could also open both doors in the living room every morning to vent out the living room. And then run a tube from the window ac drain port across my room into my bathroom.
Here is my layout, and my two proposed locations, in blue and purple:
As shown with the cubic feet, the living room is nearly 4 times larger than the bedroom. So, I'm thinking that may be the best solution.
Which door is a better location, and will this work?
