Home computer rooms

I've got a Danby portable type dual hose unit which works very well
for my office.  The single hose units are really no good for getting a
room cool as they continually pull in outside air.  It's pretty quiet,
a lot quieter than the cheaper no-name unit it replaced.  12000BTU -
it does really need it's own 15A/120V circuit because of the size.
