I know this will only do a small room but i thought this was still a brilliant Price for a proper AC unit and will save you a small fortune when trying to buy one in the summer

Ordered, Thanks
Ordered cheers!
Sounds fantastic!
Heat added. (Though this should remove the heat.)

Will have to look up just how small a room.
I've got a small bedroom that gets really really warm in the summer, this will help no end, well spotted OP.
New to this, is there a hose I need to put outside connected to this?

All portable air conditioners have a ventilation hose???

Which is what makes them so impracticable to use, unfortunately.

As long as there's a window somewhere normally its ok, but you do need to stand it on something if window is in a weird place.

They're barely impractical, I mean just stick the hose out of a window. The only way they'd be impracticable is if you were in a room with no windows at all.

The problem with windows is that you’re probably going to be letting in as much warm air as you’re venting. Result - no effect. You need a proper vent.

The air outside will most likely be cooler than the air in a hot room. I ended up venting mine through one of the air bricks. Works well and I usually leave my window open a crack anyway, the air it pulls from the window feels cool. But regardless the air the aircon blows is icy cold. On a boiling day it's a necessity for me.
As with all single hose portable air conditioners, this unit takes cool air from the room, dumps heat into it to cool itself down then pumps it outside. In doing so it creates a mild vacuum which sucks air from outside into your home through any cracks. This makes them super inefficient and while they'll cool a local area they'll make the rest of your home hotter.

Unfortunately dual hose (use outside air to cool themselves) or window units are rare as hen's teeth compared to minisplits which require drilling holes in your wall. Us renters just can't win.

You're right, portable air conditioners are inherently inefficient, but in the UK, even on warm summer nights, it's usually cooler outside, so the air drawn in is cooler. I have a portable air conditioner. It's quite effective at drawing the heat out of a hot bedroom on the very few nights it's necessary, then stored in a cupboard most of the year.

If the air drawn in is cooler then you might be better off with a fan in a window as they're cheaper to run. I'm thinking of this year's heatwave where it was something ridiculous like 35C indoors and 33C outdoors. On days like that it's best to seal your house as best possible then use a dual hose unit to cool the sealed in volume of air.

The house soaks up the heat. Got my bedroom down from 29°c to 21, and the cold air was great. I couldn't justify mounting an expensive external system for the maybe 20 days a year it might be used, gathering rust the other 345. The portable units work if set up correctly, albeit inefficiently. In a warmer country definitely go for an external unit.
