    what about the compressor???

    Dumping the heated exhaust from the AC onto the compressor is going to kill the compressor as well. Like the AC guys suggest, you need to bust a hole and mount that unit so the exhaust is outside.

    Agreed, I was hoping the exhast fans would handle the heat but they are just not enough.

    What about the sides?

    Mounting the ac unit in the block - what about the side vents in the unit?

    You can't move enough air through those two tiny openings to dispel the heat build-up between the a/c and the air compressor. You would've been better off getting a split system and drilling small holes through the brick wall for linesets and wiring vs. that current setup. The condenser section needs to be outside where it can reject heat from the shop properly.

    shophound has the best idea yet-
    Install a mini-split. Way more cost than a window unit(and more cooling), but you will have something to take with you when you get the high dollar, repeating, 5 axis job in a couple of years and move into your own space : )

    also,
    We actually have two units in the same complex, they are not close to each other though. The guys in shop two are going to want the same as shop one so we will end up spending double the $$$$$. We don't need it to be 70 degrees we just need to knock a bit off the 95 ultra-humid days.

    You need through the wall units, not window units.

    Don't you guys have anything constructive to do besides hastle a guy looking for some techical know how? Maybe I should sit at home all evening and make fun of people trying to learn stuff on the net? Actually, it might be easier to just to walk into an elemtary school and laugh at kids who can't read. Boy would that be fun!
