Air conditioning installation deduction work from home

I am working from home as a web developer and frankly my upstairs work room is unbearable to work in during any hot day. I want to install air-conditioning to this room and I only use it when I work from home.

 

I know I cannot use the 52cent method to deduct the cost. I am wondering can the installation be a deduction given it would be on the work room? 

 

If so would it need to be deducted at $300 per year and how long is the depreciation period for a air con? 

 

I know this will be a very common question given the increase in WFH

It does come down to the circumstances of why you are working from home that is explained in the other post.
