I've got a window mounted A/C in my garage. It generally does a pretty good job 
of cooling it down but now that the daily high is over 100 (f) it is having a 
problem and is tripping the breaker after running a hour or so in mid afternoon 
( unit gets full sun).

Question: would installing a fine water mist sprayer behind the evaporator coil 
easy the load on the compressor thus allowing it to continue to cool?
For the few weeks I have this problem it is not worth the cost of wiring and 
installing a larger unit.
Thanks for any thoughts
