Answer: 
The important thing about air conditioners is that they do not make cold. They move heat from inside your home to the outside of it. You need the vent to get the heat out side.

Answer: 
All air conditioners need to exhaust hot air to the outside. You might try an evaporative cooler. Also, with these types of air conditioners, the exhaust hose gets hot and that heat then stays in the room. I bought a solid color quilt at the ARC store, cut a piece to size and made a cover for the hose. Works great to insulate the hose and stop it from radiating heat into the room.

Answer: 
You won't find one without a vent, it must produce more heat than it removes and the heat has to go somewhere else if the room is to wind up being cooler.

I bought one, online, once that said you didn't have to vent it. It turned out to be one I had to add ice to about every hour - empty the water from the melted ice, and it only kind of cooled a 16 square foot space. It was just a fan blowing over the ice - which I could have done for a lot cheaper with a box fan and a big pan of ice sitting in front of it..... So beware of the ones that say you don't Read More

Consider getting window tinting to reflect the Sun's rays.

There does not exist any door so I installed there and it cools of that room, Dining Room, Partial Living room around corner hallway and another bedroom More that adequate and comfortable., I live in Florida and leave on unit during day unless we go OUT for a Length of time. Over years in many homes I purchased and installed myslf seven units and they function very well. CAVEAT the units that have dehumidifier, fan & Cooling will break down and if One Mode does NOT function entire Unit will Not work. This Unit has separate Controls so I suggest for the COOLING DAYS DO NOT utilize the dehumidifier.Asan aside this Year with two units my electric Bill has DECREASED BY $28.00 AVERAGE.

Answer: 
Hi Cynckat,
Portable a/c units are as a whole are less efficient than window or central a/c units. The amount of glass area in a room greatly effects the thermal warming of the room.
Considering the amount of glass you have I think this portable unit would give you less than satisfactory performance.

Answer: 
Don't know for sure. It would depend on how high your window is - I'm pretty sure the part that goes at the bottom of a normal window could be put in vertical instead of horizontal. I'd put a piece pf wood or something to secure the window and block it from being opened from the outside - using it either way.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Portable air conditiner I have had this unit for only a week.. It can get very hot and humid here in Philadelphia and so far this A/C unit is very efficient. I use this unit in my TV/Media room and it is fairly quiet compared to other portable A/C unity I have. June 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Portable Air Conditioner The portable air conditioner works great. I have only used the fan as it has not been hot enough to test the cooling of the air conditioner. It is so much easier than having to lift a window air conditioner in a window. June 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It Keeps the bedroom cool and I am happy. Easy to set up. There is no connection piece for the tunnel tube, and I think there should be. But it stays put ok anyway. This thing is loud. It doesn't bother me but it might bother others. I don't know if there is water in it that needs to be emptied, so I am waiting for the buzzer thing to signal. The outlet plug is so low that it will be hard to empty the tank if ever needed. We shall see. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a very good and versatile product The air conditioner arrived amazingly fast and was very well packed. however the issue that no small air conditioner designed for Window mounting, will fit in a basement window means that people who live in basement apartments would need this product. it would make that exhaust hose would actually reach high enough for a basement window. I had to go out and buy a new hose and it cost me $20. which isn't much but it should have been included in the kit. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It works as described and cools our camper space It arrived in a very well protected box. I am using it in an RV camper, about 200 sq feet. It installed quickly. I have tested out all the controls on both the unit itself and the remote. Everything works. It cools properly. It rolls around easily. I am happy with this product. April 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by effective cooling This unit has been doing an effective job of cooling the master bedroom, which is actually somewhat larger than the area this air conditioner is designed for. If you are venting out a window with a screen on it, take off the grate that is on the end of the hose or you may have some interference issues. The only quibble with this unit would be a resonant vibration through the side of the unit while running. Not quite as bad as flow-masters on a truck, but definitely there. I solved this by putting some zip-ties around it's waist with a piece of rubber between the zip ties and the side of the unit. I increased tension on the zip ties until the vibration stopped. I don't know if every unit would have this same vibration, and, I didn't feel like returning it to find out, but this solution was easy enough for a tinkerer like me. September 8, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Need improvement! The product supposed to cool a 250 square ft. room,my bedroom is half that.. I'm comfortable anywhere from 74 to 80 degrees if the humidity's not too high. I've set the temperature to 68 degrees and never gone below 74 degrees leaving it on all night when outside temperature is above 90. One of the reasons I bought it was because the description doesn't mention that it works as a dehumidifier as I didn't want to empty buckets of water so I was surprised when I had to drain the unit. The exhaust hose would be easier to manage if it were 4 inch instead of 6 inch and was better insulated, the closer to the window you can get it the better. September 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Portable Air Conditioner Works great. Use it in the room where we keep our server for our computer system. December 29, 2015
