insulate exhaust hose?

I have a portable AC.
The exhaust hose gets kind of warm and that heat would make the room warmer.
Should I insulate it and how?

Any heat added to a room will make your unit work harder. Higher utility costs and shorten the lifespan. Find a flex duct the size of the exhaust duct and slip over sealing the ends with a good quality duct tape.
