Yeah, it wouldn't hurt to do some calculations first and
make sure we get something big enough to cool the room. I've
got some rule-of-thumb type formulas around here somewhere
that we've used to spec A/C units for our client's server

Another option would be get someone to come out and give
us an estimate on what it would cost to get the existing
central A/C system working again. Probably not cheap but
it can't hurt to get a quote.
