Hello all! We’re currently renovating our old house and will shortly be taking out the old-school box air conditioners that are mounted in the walls. Can someone recommend what kind of air con we should get to replace them? I honestly have NO idea about them. Obviously there’s no ducting or anything in the house, and the problem is that its very open – you can see from my (shabby, Excel, not to scale) pic that its very open through the living/kitchen areas, and also there’s a flight of stairs going down from the middle which is entirely open. Downstairs is just a laundry and rumpas (junk) room so it doesn’t need to be cooled, but its impossible to stop the flow of air down there. The top storey of the house gets scorching in summer – I’m talking 40+ - but downstairs is always cool. We’re planning on selling as soon as the house is done (mid next year) so don’t want the most expensive top of the line equipment ever, but just something that does the job.
What kind of air con should I get and where do you recommend we place it in the house?
