95øF?! <pant-pant-pant!!> I would go with two separate window units
for each room. Cold air doesn't like to move, and as you will be
trying to squeeze it through two doorways and avoid letting it go
downstairs you would be in for disappointment with one unit.
I think we have a similar situation here: the original house was 1«
story; recently added on a master bedroom so now a two story. The
original house was built in the mid-40's. The original upstairs area,
first used by us as a bedroom, now my Computer Room, gets "a little
warm" even with using a booster fan in the duct to help pull the cold
air from the central air. A window air unit keeps it cool. The
stairway is on the opposite side of the room from the window with the
a/c in it -- can feel it is much warmer on the far side.
As for the size (BTU) of the units, I'm not sure. Bring the
measurements with you. Here in the U.S. many manufacturers are either
putting suggested sizes on the cartons or there is a chart at the
display. Bigger is not better in this case: too large will shut down
too soon -- it will be cool but not remove the humidity.
Also consider the 'bedroom' type of unit: runs a little quieter.
One other thing to consider is the electrical circuit. Not sure how
much current (amps) the units take but don't think I'd want them on
the same ciruit. (Quicky/approximate way to convert from Watts to
Amps: 100 W is 1 A at 120 V.)
