EdgeStar Exhaust Hose for AP12000, PAC8000, and AP14000
Original equipment!! Better prices than elsewhere!
This exhaust hose is original equipment, so it fits my portable air conditioner perfectly. It may seem a bit pricey, but prices elsewhere are higher. I wish EdgeStar would redesign this hose to be multi-layer, much like found in homes. An internal plastic hose surrounded by some level of insulation and then an outer plastic hose coating. I find that as you run the air conditioner, the HOT exhaust heats up the single-layer hose and re-heats the room. That doesn't seem like a good design to me. I'm going to check at the home center if I can find the same diameter a/c flexible vent hose which has the multi-layer design. If I can not find the identical size, then maybe a tiny bit larger and I'll slide this exhaust hose inside the insulated one.

This is not the cheap, flimsy exhaust hose that it appears to be in the picture. It is exactly like the original exhaust hose that comes with the portable A/C unit. It's a little expensive, but exactly what I need. Super fast shipping.

I have a/c and it works well for me.
I like the product because I can use it as needed. I do have to have sliders open with a/c from house going in room also, but it works for me.
