This is about air conditioning. I would like to find a window

Resolved Question:

This is about air conditioning. I would like to find a window air conditioner where the main unit sits on the ground or floor outside the window and a small head comes through the window to bring the cool air inside. It's the reverse of the portable unit that sits inside and is vented to the outside through a duct and a small vent that site in the window. Is there such a thing and who makes it?

I switched to Q& A ....

Are you looking for an AC system that is all in one box?

Are you looking for an AC system that serves one room?

Is the system to be permanent or portable?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Just one box that I can store away in the winter. I'm in connecticut. Need only one room. Portable is preferred. wWe only need AC a few days in the year.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Problem with the standard window unit is that it's heavy and bulky.

Expert:  HVAC Applications replied 9 months ago.
John, What is the size of the room in square feet?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

It's about 15 X 20

Expert:  HVAC Applications replied 9 months ago.
John, All window and / or wall mounted ac units are not really portable. What is your objection to the portable units with wheels designed for indoor ?
Expert:  HVAC Applications replied 9 months ago.
John, There is no product on the market that meets your description. If you do decide to get a portable unit that sits inside the room, get one that has TWO ducts. They are harder to find but they are much more effective and efficient to operate than the units with only one duct.

Please rate my answer if you are satisfied with it. Feel free to ask questions should you require more information.
