air conditioners

Hey, phoenixredux, we should really put the old window AC units up on craigslist. Or, alternately, do any local lj-friends want to buy a used window air conditioner? We have central air, and there are old window units sitting around in the basement.

I am interested!

How big is it and how much would you like for it?

We have two different sizes, I'd have to look at them or maybe phoenixredux knows, they were his.

We have three or four window units. The newest one I have, has just one season on it. That's the only one with a remote control. The other one that's mine has maybe three or four seasons. The other one or two units belong to Sam. They range from smallish to frelling huge, so we probably have one that'll fit your windows.

$100 each, I guess, or best offer. Maybe we can trade for some electrical work?

I wish I had a couple of them here at work. Our central air is out today. But we don't have windows, anyway.

That depends on how big it is. How many BTUs is it? A 5000 BTU at Home Depot is $100 new, but that's the smallest one they have.

On the electrical work thing, if you want fifty thermostats and a centralized control system, I'm your gal. Residential stuff, not so much.

For one thing, it isn't legal for me to do side jobs because I don't have a contractor's license, and to be honest, almost all of my experience is in commercial or industrial work. Residential work is a special kind of pain in the ass that I sort of hate.

Actually mine have remotes too, though I'll have to dig them out. Here is what we have:

Kenmore Plasmaire 12300 BTU w/EnergyStar and remote (if I can find it...) Three or four seasons. Works great, a bit dinged up on the exterior. I'd ask $150/BO. It's very heavy.

Panasonic CWXC83YU 7800 BTU w/EnergyStar and remote (maybe, likewise...) That's probably 6 seasons old. I'd say $75/BO.

Haier, smaller unit, I'd guess 5000 or 7800 BTU - that's yours, Phoenix, maybe you know more about it. You generally have to get the front grille off to read the model number and BTU, and I couldn't reach it on this one.

Whirlpool ACQ052XFO 5000 BTU, also yours.

5000 to 7800 BTUs will cool one room very well, and may be enough to cool a small apartment, depending on how much shade the building has. 12300 BTUs will cool multiple rooms.

if they are not too heavy and not too clanky, they would probably be an improvement over mine!
