Portable air conditioners are the air conditioning units that can be easily transferred from one room to another. These units do not require any permanent installation. However, portable air conditioners require venting, after some time, to maintain their proper functioning.

All portable air conditioners come with the venting kit as well as the venting instructions. Before venting you must decide where the portable ac has to be positioned. Once you’ve positioned the portable air conditioner where you’d like it, you must set the exhaust hose through an opening to the outside so that it can vent hot air out of the room.

The most important reason for venting your portable air conditioners is because they tend to extract hot air. If you want your air conditioning system to cool the room effectively, you need to let the hot air vent to the outside, before using it.

Portable air conditioners can also be vented through a window, wall, ceiling or even a door. Plexiglas is generally used for venting portable air conditioning systems through casement windows. For this, you need to cut the Plexiglas according to the size of the window. Then cut a 5″ hole and set this over the open window. With this, the portable air conditioning unit will vent the hot air to the outside. Moreover, Plexiglas will allow the same amount of light to pass through the window as the regular glass.
