Hot exhaust air is normal. The unit is exhausting the hot air from the room. This is common among Portable Air Conditioners.
If exhaust air gets too hot, check the following:
- Check the exhaust vents and hose. Improper or clogged vents can prevent hot air from escaping.
- Check the correct size required for your space. BTU rating and power could be too low to meet the needs of your space. If the BTUs are too low, the heat load will be too much for the portable AC to handle and will cause overheating due to continuous running.
- NOTE: Ceiling Height and Room Dimensions should be considered for the BTU size of the unit.
- Frost build-up can cause blockage that can affect air conditioner performance. Ensure adequate airflow around your AC to prevent frost.
- Mold & dirt build-up can also clog parts and cause overheating.
We recommend frequent checkups, cleaning and maintenance of your unit to prevent any blockage or frosting.
- If parts are damaged, contact Customer Service.
