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.

Answer: 
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

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: 
I believe so. It is only 900 watts (8 amps), 110v. I wouldn't use anything smaller than 2,000 watts, so you should be good. I don't recommend using an inverter, it may wear the inverter out.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 61 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tried 2 units, stopped cooling I ordered this unit for my garage and went ahead and installed an exhaust hose and outlet and a drain line through the exterior brick wall. First unit cooled for about a day and then just blew air out the same temperature of the room. Thought I got a dud. Had to box up and take to the local home depot and the return took about 15-20 minutes. I got the second one in and it worked few a few days and then I just put an infrared thermometer on the front and it is blowing air out that is 94 degrees. About to return it and try something else. July 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Take it camping Works great with a Honda 2000 is portable generator. Just plug it into the generator using a 12 or 10 ga. Extension cord . Shove the units hot air exhaust hose under the wall of the tent venting the hot air outside. Also great for at home because it works well in either a tall casement window, or a conventional double hung window. June 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Buy Unless You Are Trying To Cool A Very Small Closet! I am so regretting having purchased this. I have a very small room that I wanted to cool off and this is not able to do that. It will blow cold air on you if you are sitting right in front of it but 1 step out of the direct path of air flow and you are sweating tremendously. This may be okay if you plan on using only in fall or spring when it's not so hot outside but in the heat of summer....DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! Invest in something else. August 10, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ok for camping use Using this unit in an rv. Works fine to cool whole rv (21ft). You just need to buy a drain hose.little built in water tank fills fast..has hide indent handle so its easy able to be pick up. Has wheels too. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It was what I lokinfor is working good, but I can used in every on any other window because the designe won't fit August 4, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cools pretty well Like a lot of customers who bought this model the hose connection was very frustrating and almost takes 2 people to hold each end for attachment. When I moved the unit the hose fell out - a VERY serious flaw in design!! Thought about returning the unit but needed it on 2 consecutive hot days. Not much info on instructions. Make sure the drain plug is closed or you will have water pouring out. If the hose problem continues I will buy a dryer hose vent and use a wire hose clamp. Good AC but very frustrating re-attaching hose. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by portable a/c we have a small upstairs and this cools the entire second floor. Nice and cool, not very noisy, the wheels are convenient. July 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Portable AC It works well and keeps by 11X 14 bedroom adequately cool. It's kind of a large unit so you need space for it, but I am very happy with the purchase, performance and price for this product. I recommend it. July 19, 2016
