Frequently asked questions.
Does this portable air-conditioner require and exhaust hose?
Yes, all portable air conditioners do require venting via a window, wall or cavity using the window kit supplied, this is so it can vent the hot air outside of the room it is being used in. Portable air conditioners pull in warm air, cool it, and expel the cooled air out of the front of the unit and the remaining warm air and moisture out of the back of the unit. It is this warm air and moisture that needs to be vented out of the room you are currently cooling.
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. Customers that have purchased this unit for campers and caravans have been able to place this small unit directly against a self-built vent in their caravan or camper.
How do I install my Portable Airconditioner?
In general, very little installation is required for the GMCp07y Portable Aircon. The most important part of the setup that you will need to complete is determining where to vent the exhaust hose. Each Portable Airconditioner removes warm air and moisture from the room in order to cool it.

Window exhaust hose kits supplied allow quick and easy window venting without losing cool air to the outside.
