It's best to put a unit that just big enough for the bedroom in the bedroom. 8000 btu's will cool a room that's up to 350 square feet. That's a pretty big bedroom. Have you tried keeping the door closed? You're better off with a unit big enough for the kitchen in the kitchen. Can you close off the kitchen?
It's very difficult to get adequate circulation in an apartment from a single unit in one room unless all the rooms are wide open to each other. Since the bedroom has a door that you close a single uni in the bedroom won't work very well. I need to know the size of the rooms to suggest a size for the window units. Also where do you live?
8k should be plenty for the bedroom unless it's not working properly or there are more than 2 people in the room and it's in the sun all day. The problem if you go any bigger is that the circuit in the room may not handle the load. Check the size of the circuit breaker for the bedroom and go as big as 10K if it draws no more than 12 amps if the bedroom circuit is 15 amps. Your kitchen need 8k so maybe move the bedroom unit to the kitchen. The 6500 unit should handle the living room.
Do you have any more questions?
