A/C in window well


there may be some problems. first the compressor will run hotter due to the condenser (outside) coil being partially blocked by the window well. second you may create a water problem in your basement from the condensate. These size units are fairly cheap you may have to just try it to find out. You may be able to contact a manufacture of a window unit and ask them.
