While it is nice to work in cooler temps, I find I just use a huge fan and open the windows (of course you may not need to sweet off some pounds like I do).
I don’t put window units in my homes. I will allow tenants or buyers to do so but not on my dime. Even Lonnie had a window unit stolen.
If you do go forward with the units I would only use one and secure it as best you can. Adding multiple window units often creates problems in trailers, even homes with 200 amp service because the window outlets are often on the same circuit. I have had a number of tenants call because they keep losing power. We show up and they have 3 window units on the same ciruit.
If you are flipping these or lonnie dealing them then I would forgo the window units myself. Remember, it is what the tenants or buyers are willing to live with, not what our living standards are. (I can’t even sleep in a house without central a/c).
