Basement AC

Hello all,
I am from the electrical forum, but had a question about an AC unit I want to install in my unfinished basement.
The basement is 60' x 40'. All concrete block. 60% under ground level. It is fairly cool down there in the summer, but I heat up some when working on projects. My fan works well if I am in front of it.

What size unit would be required? It will be a window type unit.......Thanks John

Ps.....I can run 240 Volts to it.

Basement AC

Not a HVAC person, but what is the relative humidity in the basement? If it is high, get a dehumidifier, the air will feel cooler with lower humidity.


What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it.
