We have a portable a/c unit in our converted garage. It has a plastic type exhaust tube that ALWAYS seems way too hot in my opinion. We recently had our central a/c system checked looking for a reason for it's continual running. They found nothing wrong with the central a/c. The only thing the guy noted was that the air coming out of the portable vent was 114 degrees!
My husband can't feel the heat it puts out because the unit blows towards him. But it's hot.
So, I called the manufacturer to see if they have another tube...an insulated tube to reduce the heat output in the room. They told me no other tube would work...all other tubes would reduce the units efficiency and suggested we dial it down 5-7 degrees.
Sounds like a load of bs to me. I was thinking we could use the smaller regular a/c insulation, but I'm not an expert.
Any ideas? Is my idea worthy?
