You do have to use the exhaust tube, would need to put a hole in your wall. Also, these units really generate a lot of heat. We tried one, it almost seems as if it actually makes the room hotter! You would be better off buying a small regular unit, constructing a hole in the wall to the outside.
If you absolutely cannot do the hole, you could get an extension to the exhaust tubing and maybe use a window in another room?

Is my portable lg air conditioner suppose to be blowing hot air out of the back


YES
it works the same as any air conditioner where if you go outside and place your hand at the fan then it will be blowing hot air
In the instructions it should say place the rear near an open door or window or use the hoses to move the hot air out of the room
air conditioner units are basic heat transfer units where they take the heat out of the room and transfer it to the outside and in the process remove the moisture from the air in the room which i turn makes it more comfortable

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.

Remove exhaust hose


U need that hose to direct the warm air outside the area to be cooled. If you remove it, the hot exhaust will stay in the room being cooled and negate the cold air being directed into the room.

That is why regular room AC units are mounted on window sill. Cold air in, hot air out.

CAN I PUT THE EXHAUST TUBE INTO STORAGE CLOSET INSTEAD OF PUTTING IT IN A DOOR GOING TO THE OUTSIDE?


I think you are asking about a portable air conditioner, not a de-humidifier. With that assumed, the answer is, NO - that is not a good idea. The exhaust tube is for getting rid of the heat that you have pulled from the room you are cooling, plus the extra heat that the device itself creates. This is a considerable amount of heat, which will quickly heat up the closet and leak back into the room you are trying to cool. If the closet it tightly sealed, the unit will not be able to push the air through the tube, and the unit itself will overheat. The result will be that you will be buying electricity to actually RAISE the temperature of the room you are trying to cool.

Cool air coming from the vents in the front but hot air coming from the back. What do I do to stop the hot air so that the room will cool down?


Hi,
The hot air is a product of the cooling.... if you stop that then the unit will not cool!!!
You need to buy an exhaust kit to vent the hot air outside so that it will cool the room.
Otherwise it is just what is called a spot cooler or in other words you are cool if you sit in front of it, but it actually will make the overall room temp. hotter!!

Hot air coming out of back


portable air conditioners mainly have two hoses one hose is exhaust thats the one that is blowing hot air. the one pulling is return.. the hot air blowing out should be exhausted to the outside. the blowing air needs a hose and to be laid out a window the back should have model and serial maybe product number. the two holes are either 4 inch or three inch and most portable units other than hand me downs come with a window frame that allows the hot exchanged air to go outside and cooler air to be used for heat exchange.

Air exhaust hose gets extremely warm


The Pinguino's exhaust pipe has to be attached to the window bracket to direct the air hot air out of the room, otherwise the room can't cool properly.
The owner's manual has several troubleshooting remedies for you to try:
1)  If the window is open, close the window. 2)  If there is a heat source in the room (burner, lamp, etc.), eliminate the heat source. 3)  If the exhaust hose is detached, connect the exhaust hose.  (My recommendation is to connect the exhaust hose to the window bracket and direct the air outside.) 4)  If the air filters are clogged, clean or replace the filters.
Remedies that aren't mentioned in the manual, but you might find helpful:
1)  Make sure that there are no kinks in the hose, and that the hose either remains straight or has a gentle curve when directing it into the window bracket.
2)  A sunny window reduces the maximum power and efficiency of the unit.  Placing it in a sunny window reduces your BTUs by at least 600, which means the maximum square footage of cooled space is reduced.  Cooling a kitchen requires at least 4,000 BTUs alone, which is nearly half of the unit's BTUs.  Try to place the unit by a window that receives minimum to no direct sunlight.
Finally, stating the obvious, if the room isn't cooling, the room is too large for the unit.  The PACL90 cools up to 400sqft.  Bear in mind that the air from these portable air conditioners cannot move around corners very well, so try to set it by a window in the central part of the room.
