Exhaust hose for portable air conditioner

1797 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  airtrackinc
Instead of purchasing a new hose kit from the manufacturer (LG) for $100, can I buy a generic 6" flexible hose and install it on the two adapters? Does it need to be insulated? Any suggestions, directions or what to buy would be appreciated, thank you.

they sell it for venting exhaust fans.

doesn't have to be the same material.
Rotting insulation on your outdoor A/C lines can cost you energy. The fix is simple. We show you how to do it and tell you where to get the special insulating foam.
