A/C window unit question please


Bought me a big window units that says it cools 1000 square feet. Reason for this is that my compressor locked up per HVAC tech. Cant afford a new unit right now.

I have a few questions.

1. On my thermostat should i engage just the fan? Will it cool better with the window unit.
2. If no on the thermostat fan then should I close my vents?
3. Is it wise to run the ceiling fans with window unit or but some floor fans?

thank you for your time.

A lot depends on the details of your duct system and layout of rooms. Just try it and see what happens. Likely that floor fans will move the air to adjacent rooms better depending on the layout. This way you might be able to choose what rooms to cool rather an all rooms.
