Open Question

Ventless use of Genie model KY-32U/11156

I want to use this portable AC in a room where I cannot vent it out the window. I was told this was possible but have never done it before (the machine is from 2001). How exactly do I do this? Obviously I would still need to empty the container where all the condensation collects, but what else?

I need to know this before 10 AM Thursday PDT, so would appreciate a prompt reply.

Thanks in advance--

Roberta

Portable Air Conditioning great portable air cooling


Portable air conditioning offers you the convenience of mobility. All you have to do is roll the portable air conditioner to the room in which it's needed. Install an exhaust hose out a window or other opening (everything you need is provided) and turn it on. The installation process for these units is very simple. These portable air conditioning units are built small enough to be very mobile and are supplied with wheels for easy movement. A portable air conditioner will also work very well in apartment situations where you will often find a window unit is unacceptable.

Portable air conditioners are very unique in that they are portable and can be easily moved to different locations in your home or business. They can be a highly effective way to either help out an existing HVAC system in one room or cool a single room entirely. They are also one of the best ways to cool a room or area without having to install a window mounted unit.

These air conditioners use a compressor and Freon to cool just like normal air conditioning. They are very effective in cooling rooms and to keep the humidity low. Like normal air conditioners portable units extract hot air that must be vented. That is why they need to have the exhaust hose to the outside. These units can cool air as well as air conditioning done with window air conditioners. However they do not require installation like conventional window air conditioners this makes them very convenient for seniors or physically challenged people. Most portable air conditioners are supplied with a window kit. This kit contains exhaust hoses that will work in any window: double-hung, casement, awning or slider. Because they vent through an opening like a window they require no permanent mounting like window air conditioning.

Portable air conditioners are a very good cooling option for those who can't use the more conventional air conditioning methods. Remember though that this type of unit is not as efficient as most window units or conventional air. So while they may make your environment cooler, it won’t turn your tent into a room at the local hotel.

So as you can see these air conditioning units have some great advantages over other types of air conditioning. They are a great alternative for unique applications where central air or conventional window units are either unfeasible or too expensive. During special events, portable air conditioning can also be a great way to keep guests or equipment cool and comfortable. Always be aware though that because portable air conditioning will remove moisture from the air, they will also need to be drained occasionally similar to a dehumidifier.

Does your application warrant a permanent air conditioner of some form or should you just use a portable one? There are some interesting things to consider when making that choice. Weigh out all of the different options and make that decision based on what will best suit your needs.

We do not have a window in the room this need to be installed in. Does the window installation kit allow us to install the pipe that goes outside through our exterior wall of the house? Like a dryer vent...


I think you probably could. As most manufacturers of portable AC units allow for this. It's what called a semi -permanent installation . The dryer duct idea will work if the shaft part of the dryer duct is the same diameter as the window mount duct and the shaft of the dryer duct is long enough to go thru the wall and leave enough for the AC Exhaust Duct to hook to. Be sure that the flap door of the dryer duct moves freely and will not get stuck in the closed position. That could be a big problem if it does.
Keep in mind, you will not be able to add any length the AC duct hose. It must remain the same.

Hope this helped answer your question and things for choosing FixYa.

If you are using this inside your home with central air running do you have to vent it to an outside window?


Yes, it must be vented to the outside, even if you're using central AC, too. The reason being is if you don't vent it to the outside, the hot air and humidity that normally goes thru the duct and out the window, will stay in the house and your Central AC will have to run longer and harder to overcome this rise in heat and humidity. In addition, the room that the portable AC is in, will get extremely hot & humid.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Need window air conditioner to fit window 23" wide. Studio apartment main room is 13'X17' with kitchen 6'x17' and walk-in closet and bath 5'x17'. Would like a kenmore and quiet while in operation.


Hi; Try purchasing an up right portable ac unit. Then all you need to do is vent the hot air tube out a convienant window or dryer duct. Needs to be at least 12,OOO BTU. I size my installs to 400 sq. ft. per ton(12,000 btu)

Danby ALSO does not cool 3 days old


Take it back where you bought it. A 12,000 BTU unit should be more than enough for a 192 square foot room, so there is some problem with the unit.

Solebus heating


yes, it is intended that way. I also have a Soleus and a special manual addendum sheet was inside the manual and it pointed out this feature..I think Soleus had a lot of customer phone-ins over this...I guess the idea for the exhaust is to withdraw moisture from the room, since anytime air is heated or cooled, moisture is a by-product that must be eliminated.
