Yea I thought of that. It does get pretty hot around Philly in the summer. If I do this I will install a thermostat in the chamber in the hopes that the window unit won't run constantly. I will also have to rig up a drip pan and condensate pump also.
My big question is: what temperatures can I expect to achieve with this set up? I'm hoping that you or anyone else can answer this for me. I would be pretty p off if I went through all this trouble and found that I can only get 5 degrees out of it. Thanks to all that reply.
