Air Conditioning and Coolant
Why would the car cut off when the air conditioner is on?
First blush guess: the compressor is siezed, so that the engine can't turn it. If you rev up the engine a bit before you turn it on, you might find that the engine will load, but not die, and the belt will slip/squeal/smoke.

Can a portable air conditioner be vented through a fireplace flu and chimney?
Yes, this is a great way to exhaust a single hose portable air conditioner. You would simply need to adapt the hose connections to the front of your fireplace. I have seen an installation where the front of the fireplace was sealed with a piece of plexiglas. The plexiglas had been custom cut to fit the portable AC's fittings.

How do you install a portable air conditioner into a casement window?
There are no portable air conditioner units with a window kit that will work for a casement window. Some customers have fashioned a solution using plexiglas to cover their entire window area and then have a small hole cut into the plexiglas for the hot air discharge hose. No solution is provided "out of the box" but some customers have fashioned their own.
Can you open a window while air conditioner is on?
This is possible, but there's not much point to it. Instead of conditioning the air of the room you're in, you're starting to condition the air of the outside world as well, resulting in the room you're in getting warmer. If you want the room to be warmer, increase the temperature set on the air conditioner instead. Not only will this cut down the cost of your electric bill, but it is also more environmentally friendly.
