Avoid portable AC with single hose:
  • They suck cooled air or heated air out
  • Creates negative pressure bringing in dust from the outside.

What kind of heating it can do? Resistance coil or heat pump?

Is this LG AC unit a single hose air conditioner?

I have a single hose in my bedroom and it cools well. Haven't noticed any dust. Pretty happy with it, way nicer than dealing a window unit. Maybe I installed it wrong or something?

Of course single hose still works. The difference is, for single hose, it takes the already cooled air in your room to cool the hot AC radiator then expels it outside. If you think about it, it's not just negative pressure in your room that is a problem but also efficiency.

12000 BTU heating is equal to over 3500 Watts. Since a regular 120V outlet can only deliver about 1800W max, it has to be a heat pump.

The air conditioners that claim a much smaller heat output of around 6000 BTU are the ones that are not also heat pumps, and using resistance heating.

What would you recommend instead for a 400-450 sq ft room? Just bought a single hose portable ac from home depot that is going back because it isn't cooling the room enough in 90 degree weather.

I have no specific model in mind but a 12k BTU dual hose portable AC should easily cool 500 sq ft.

So efficiency is the only issue then? It's more efficient than a window unit. It cools well. Not sure why people rag on then so much. It's an AC and it keeps the room cool, that's all I care about.

That seems like overkill for a bedroom. I just got a dual hose for my giant living room with cathedral ceilings and it keeps it cool. I have 4 bedrooms, can't imagine having like 6 dual hoses in the house.

Because there is a better design that choosing it is logical... assuming both have the same price.
