The problem is that there aren’t any totally ventless portable air conditioners. The design of a portable ac requires that it be able to vent the hot air out of your room. As a result, it requires a venting hose.

A portable A/C unit is versatile in that it can easily be moved from one place to another depending on need. A commercial unit can function as supplemental cooling in one area of a home, commercial property, college dorm, apartment or specific work areas. This situation can occur when the main air unit is not quite adequate to keep all indoor spaces comfortable.
Portable A/C units have refrigerant. This is dissimilar to big units that have evaporation systems as their method to bring indoor temperatures down. As such, the units have to be vented to the outside, or they will not function well.
Portable A/C units are categorized according to how many ventilation hoses it has. For instance, a single hose model has just one hose connected in the back, and it sends hot air to the outside. Best for really small areas, a single hose unit has only a very limited capacity to cool the indoor space.
When a larger area needs air conditioning, a better choice to purchase and install is the 2 hose system as it can vent warm air out of the building or the home faster and more efficiently. One hose vents, and the second one pulls in cooler outdoor air and distributes it quickly.
These factors are important to research and consider before making an A/C purchase and installation that will work best for the area which needs cooling.
