Our apartment doesn't have A/C, but we do have wall ports for a portable A/C unit. Unfortunately, I can't really fathom how I'm supposed to hook the hoses up to the wall vents.
As you can see, the vents are just smooth metal. One is for intake and one is for exhaust.
Each vent has a radius of about 4 3/4". The hoses themselves are almost exactly 6" in diameter, and the hoses have an "attachment" that brings them down to 5" but the attachment has plastic bits for screws on it.
Any ideas on how to get the hose into the wall outlets? Is there some magic standard attachment that I don't know about?
Last year, we used gorilla tape to secure the hoses to the wall. However, the hoses get extremely hot (my laser thermometer put them at a little over 120° F) and the adhesive in the tape melted and the hoses kept coming off.
I have a thought that if I cut a slit in the tip of the hose, I could kind of shrink it and maybe get it to fit in the hole (but even then, it wouldn't be secure so I'd probably have to tape it in anyway...)
