    This is the A/C deathpunch mentioned. It is mounted flush to the wall. Common in multi-family. Then hooks by refrigerant lines to a coil in the air handler.

    I don't think the association will allow wall penetrations.
    Sounds like an association living in the stone ages.

    Might look into a way to landscape and hide the outside units... specific location with bushes covering it...
    NOTE that the bushes MUST give the unit clearance to pump air: sides to suck in the air, top open to exhaust the air.

    Do you have elevated decks on the back, or fenced in courtyards for each unit...
    Good places to put the unit.
    Note with the elevated deck, the unit MUST have a minimum of 5 ft above clearance... more is better!

    Best to get a heating and AC guy out and discuss options...

    Where are you... city/state???

    GA's basic rules of home heating and AC upgrades:
    *Installation is more important than the brand of equipment
    *The duct system keeps the house comfortable; the equipment only heats and cools (and dehumidifies)
    *Cheap is not good, good is not cheap; however expensive is not a guarantee of quality!
    Choose your contractor wisely!

    That association sounds horrible. Are you a renter or owner? If you are an owner then try a petition saying that not allowing air conditioning installation is unfair, unsafe, etc. Everyone deserves to be comfortable.

    I see what they are saying though I drive by all the mansions in the twin cities and think they look like trash with all their driveways. And fences and lights.

    You asked me about the optimum moisture removal of a coil by making colder than the desired dew point in the home.
    Using the saturated temperature of the coil for ideal setup is best. The saturated temperature should be a minimum of 10^F below the desired dew point of the home.
    Ex/ 75^F,50%RH, a 55^F dew point should have supply air with minimum of 50^F supply dew point conditioned air.
    Important also is the outdoor air temperature when making the adjustment needs to be typical load condition.
    Hope this helps clear the air.

    Bear Rules: Keep our home <50% RH summer, controls mites/mold and very comfortable.
    Provide 60-100 cfm of fresh air when occupied to purge indoor pollutants and keep window dry during cold weather. T-stat setup/setback +8 hrs. saves energy
    Use +Merv 10 air filter. -Don't forget the "Golden Rule"

    Water source unit.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    OP must have some dry and mild climate. Even the slumlord apts have some form of A/C here, I doubt you could give your condo away with a/c being banned. Was it disclosed to you that central a/c was prohibited during the purchase? I like the water cooled condenser idea that Pacnw mentioned, no outdoor unit or holes in the wall, stick it in the garage

    Would be nice until you received your next water bill
    Here they base your sewer bill off water consumption so double trouble.

    Definetly not legal in California! I wish the OP would say where this is that only allows window units. Going out on a limb but I have to imagine that drought isnt an issue wherever this is. Almost bought a house with a 1962 Carrier water-cooled condenser in the garage, still chugging away on a 112* day, probably still running
