Hi! I have a 3000 square foot building I need an A/C for. However, I am moving to a new building and would like to take it with me. Is this an option?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

I have had a swamp cooler for 5+ years.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I am just looking for options right now

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I can think of

With ducts
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I am hoping to install a central unit with ducts, but I guess I am open to your opinion

Itwould not make sense cost wise as a temporary solution, as ducts, unit size electrical... is diferent for each building

And Labour wise would be a huge loss.

What do you suggest?

If you absolutly need temporary air conditioning for that building, I would instal a Wall type MINI SPLIT

Here is a example of the largest single zone 36000 btu.

You can get bigger with multi zone but cost a lot more.

You sould consider size and layout of next building you will be moving at in the future for proper size unit.

If you need more specifications, you should get a few companies to come in to give you their opinion and free estimate.

OK. Click on link for example.
