Focused Climate Control Using A Stand Alone Air Conditioner

Picture of Focused Climate Control Using A Stand Alone Air Conditioner
Hey guys, renerodriguez83 here with another hack out of my everyday life. So I'm not a small guy by any means. And if your a large guy like me you probably have the same weakness as I. Oppressive heat. I live in the south which means its not only hot but humid. I have the unique pleasure of living in a studio style apartment which actually started its life as a double car garage. Needless to say insulation was not a focus on this room when this home was built as it was never intended to be heated and cools as living space. So in my vain effort to bring air conditioned space to this room, I purchased a 10,000 Btu HVAC unit. This poor unit is the little AC that couldn't. Theres just too much space to cool. Not to mention the gaming rig in the corner acting as a little heater when the GPU is wide open. So in the summers I end up sweating buckets.... Until now. For some of us, this will take you back to your childhood fort building days. And rightfully so, as was just as excited about the fort aspect as the cooling benefits I received. So onward we go to get the desperate cooling we are looking for... Now, wheres my flashlight and teddy bear...
