Answer: 
You can but it has to be of the flexible type, but by doing this it is going to get bulky and may need more room and becomes unsightly. But if looks don't matter, go for it.

Will this unit turn itself off if the unit gets too hot, but then turn back on so it won't trip the breaker?

Answer: 
Yes it should, because there are many different protections built into it. Get the extended warranty though. My AC just went after only one year. I had purchased two of the 14kw with heat. God Bless.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good air conditioner when a window mount, split or central AC is not an option. I purchased this model air conditioner for several reasons: its high 11.2 EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio), it has a two hose system for input and exhaust air which is supposed to be more efficient for cooling versus a single hose system, I live in an older home with aluminum frame windows that are too small and flimsy to support a window mount air conditioner, cutting a large opening through a wall for an air conditioner was not an option, for the 14K BTU cooling capacity and for the supported operating modes that I plan to utilize during different seasons. I operate this air conditioner maybe 1 or 2 hours at a time either late in the day or very early in the morning to reduce heat and humidity levels on hot and humid days to keep a living and working space comfortable. I have not had to drain this air conditioner when operating the unit in air conditioner mode and no water has accumulated in a clear drain hose that I attached. This air conditioner uses condensation in air conditioner mode to improve cooling efficiency and exhausts condensation as a vapor through an exhaust hose. I have not tried using the other operating modes available on this air conditioner, fan only, dehumidifier and heat. I also do not use or have much use for the remote control that came with the air conditioner because the air conditioner is simple enough to operate from its front panel and I only operate the air conditioner when I am in the room the air conditioner is in. The timer mode on this air conditioner is convenient to operate the air conditioner for a set amount of time in 1 hour increments at the end of a day when retiring. This air conditioner is loud, but not louder then large window mount air conditioners of equivalent cooling capacity. It is not possible to listen to a radio or hear a TV played at low volume levels when this air conditioner is operating in the same room. This air conditioner is very efficient with removing humidity from an indoor space quickly and making a living space comfortable. Have noticed since using this air conditioner that there is no longer any condensation on a toilet in the next room during the summer which used to accumulate so much during the summer that a puddle would form on the floor. This air conditioner is close to the size and weight of a small refrigerator and is OK aesthetically. I installed a dedicated circuit receptacle to operate this air conditioner inches away from a main breaker box for a room that I use as an office and bedroom. Built a 24" square by 3" high solid wood platform using two 3/4" thick plywood project panels sandwiched around cut up lengths of 2x6 all secured together with many 2" long deck screws instead of resting this air conditioner directly on a carpeted floor to increase the drain height to make it easier to drain this air conditioner, and to provide a stabile platform while protecting carpeting from damage from the casters on the bottom of this 81 pound air conditioner. A drain kit was not include with the air conditioner and only a rubber drain plug was included which I found very difficult to remove. Purchased and installed the following items from Home Depot to make a drain kit for this air conditioner. 1/2 in. x 10 ft. Clear PVC Tubing (1/2" ID x 5/8" OD) Model # 900-01203C00101 Internet # 202309819 1/2 in. PVC Sch. 40 FPT x FPT Ball Valve Model # VBVP40B3B Internet # 202369936 1/2 in. x 1/2 in. Plastic Barb x Male Adapter Quantity 2 for ball valve Model # 904-402099 Internet # 100187815 #006 SS CLAMP 3/8"X7/8" DIA Quantity 2 for ball valve 078575170657 1/2" ID clear tubing fits very securely on the smooth drain fitting that is molded as part of a drain tank on this air conditioner. It was not possible to install a hose clamp on the drain fitting since there was just enough clearance for a 5/8" OD hose to fit. Was able to use the window kit by cutting off a length of the plastic bends at each end to fit a flat plastic section of the window kit inside of an aluminum window frame channel. Used thick foam weather-stripping to seal between the top and bottom of the window kit. Also mounted the window kit in an inside window frame with an outside screen in an outer window frame to keep weather, insects, etc. from being able to enter the large air conditioner hoses. Noticed that the hose kit does not completely seal and that there are large enough cracks at the connection points to allow insects to enter. It is not possible to seal the hose kit because that would likely prevent the hose kit from being able to be removed in the future without damage. July 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good purchase the front panel broke when I removed it from the box. I fixed it with hot glue. so be careful when unboxing it. the blower doesn't blow as hard as I would like for it to. the window exhaust kit takes more effort to assemble correctly than I'd like for it to. but it is a good unit. my studies on the internet say that it is top of the line. btw, it is amazing how not loud this thing is. the customer support is very helpful and they have people that speak ENGLISH as a primary language. big thumbs up for that! catch this unit when it is on sell for less than 500 dollars. fyi, this thing will make the lights flicker when the compressor kicks on. the caster make for easy moving around.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bought this unit in 2012 My bedroom is 11X12 and it doesn't keep my room cool. I have called customer service because the heater cut off after 1-2 minutes and usually does come back on. The customer service rep told me to remove one of the hoses and use the cover cap to cover up the hole. It actually worked for 2 days but after that it went back to cutting off in 1-2 minutes. It has NEVER cool my room; just made it a "little" comfortable. The heating part NEVER warm my room.(even when it was staying on). It is bigger than most portable unit and has a higher BTU so I really thought it would work well. It cools poorly and heats badly. All in all I wished I had picked another unit. I would not recommend this unit July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not Recommended This was my first time buying a portable a/c unit. I initially bought this unit for my 450 sqft. room and it did not cool it down after testing it for several days so I put it in my other room that's only 180 sqft. and it did not cool it either. It's was easy to install and a nice design but it's very bulky, heavy and loud. I couldnt pull my blinds down because the big hoses were in the way. I bought it online and returned it at the store with no problems. I would not recommend this unit to anyone. August 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by keeping cool Not being familiar with portable air conditioners it's hard to rate it. We have a 550 sq. ft master bedroom which gets hotter than the rest of the house. The A/C cools it down in just a couple of hours.We live near the coast so it cools down most of the time late evening.So we cool the room down before bed and later we open the windows and turn off the A/C because of the noise.If it weren't so loud I'd rate it excellent. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ok for the cost I must say I'm OK with the unit it cools my family room which is an addition to my home and gets beat up by the sun for the better part of the day. I do wish the vents were positioned different. They kinda just face up and if you adjust down you lose part of the vent flow. Very easy to install not loud at all for its size on a carpet floor if the heater pumps good (in the winter) I'd add a half to the 4 star. August 16, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by never again This product is too noisy on all speeds and as a result is not as useful as I thought it would be. I'm reluctant to turn this unit on unless I'm not in the room. I'm disappointed and would not ever buy this or any other portable AC unit. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as intended Used it to air condition my upstairs bedroom at night so that I wont have to run the A/c for the house as much. Cools the room very quickly. The remote is a nice touch, but wished it was backlit to be able to see it in the dark. I rate it at 4 stars only bcause of the remote not being backlit and the blue screen on the unit cant be turned down/off. It is way to bright at night. August 9, 2016
