What are the most efficient options to maximize cooling & ventilation in a 200 square foot room with only 1 (23"x 35"h)window that opens?
The problem gets worse during the summer as there's no cross ventilation.
There's an additional window on the opposite wall that runs just below the ceiling, 94.5" x 16.5" but it does not open!
I have a 5,000 btu window air conditioner installed in dead of summer but it's not footing the bill as it's inefficient at cooling.
I'm open to all budget friendly diy ideas and options.

Hi Nospam,
What is your climate?
What direction do those windows face?
Any insulation in the walls?
How many exterior walls?
What is above this room, attic or second floor?
If attic is it hot or well ventilated?
What is below?
Are there any trees providing shade?
