No using the room air would cause moisture and mold problems. Just about any home center has a varied selection of flexible duct, that could be used either to extend what you already have or totally replace it. The Flexible dust come in 4" diameter all the way up to 10' diameter. So, I feel comfortable in saying you find what you need at any large home center. as well as any couplings or terminations necessary.

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.

Have a 2006 sebring...can't seem to find the maf sensor...its not on the air intake hose or mounted to the throttle body area...any other ideas would e great. Thanks


I'm not familiar with this vehicle. Some cars don't have MAF sensors however and use MAP sensors instead (Manifold Air Pressure). That sensor would be located on the intake manifold or throttle body.

I have a challenge 414/0038 air conditioner / dehumidifier. The hoses are missing. Can I use the dehumidifier without hoses? Where can I get a spare hose from if I need one? Thank you


No, you musn't use this air-conditioning unit without the hose. The hose vents the hot air outside, so if you don't have a vent the hot air will be inside and make the room warmer instead of colder.
You should be able to use any vent hose, like you would buy for a tumble drier etc from any spares shop

Air intake via hose & window or intake from room only?


Hello artrey3 The answer is yes, BUT the unit will be exausting room/basement air outside ruining any efficency the unit is rated for.Also you will need makeup/fresh air in the basement. The unit exausting air can put the basement in a vacuum/negitive pressure pulling in air from the chimney!

Can i us a wall mounted air conditioner to build a small cool room for chilling lamb


Hi, correct me if i am wrong, but you want to use a wall mounted a/c to chill Lamb or other foods? Well, air conditioners are considered De-humidifiers, and medium temp. units, so if you cleaned out this room and put in the right materials on the walls and ceiling, you would have to maintain a safe temp 38*F and use this product as I am not sure what the shelf life would be? Check the sq. footage and get a unit more than large enough to maintain this temp. I know on a walk-in Refer, health inspectors want these boxes to be maintained at 38*F, and you can't accomplish this without modern refrigeration equipment. To chill it for a short time, maintain that temp and keep for you're own use.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Through the wall vs. window installation


window mount doesn't have to extend out on the back to clear the side /top intake vents because a window is about 2" thick,
but a wall mount has to have about 6 to 8 " clearing before the intakes vents can be exposed. you can't have your intakes buried in the wall.
in short if you see about 8 " of dead metal in the center area (just behind the window sill) then you can mount it in a wall as it will protrude far enough to clear the side /top intakes.


a sleeve just gives you a way to balance / attach to the outside wall

Need AC for Server Room


I find it amazing that in this day and age IT manager will still scrimp on there server room environmental systems! It must not be that critical! Anyways you'll be better off with a split type unit correctly sized for your server room. Toshiba now have small units that can pump up to 50 meters away if needed. the key is to have it correctly sized!
