Wall mount A/C unit, exhaust into a garage

OK-I have to move my 12,000 size AC unit from a window install in the kitchen to a wall mount in the dining room, the case allows for this. Since my house has few places to properly "thru wall" mount for proper air flo, the only nice place to put it would be in the dinning room wall HOWEVER it would exhaust into my attached unfinished/uninsulated garage. Is there really any issue with this other than piping out the water condensation and putting extra hot air into the garage????

Well thats what we would call a heat pump for the garage. If it did get hot out there in the garage. The unit could go off on high head and dont know just what it would do ED

No problem. Just make sure you have enough ventilation in the garage to prevent the temperature from rising much above ambient. You may be surprised how much heat will accumulate in the garage.

local infinity dealership

has condensers for office in service area. vent fans through the roof above them energize at same time, works like a charm! i agree, be sure there is adequate ventilation or unit will not perform properly due to high head....

Just a word of caution--

Be sure the window unit is sealed so fumes which may accumulate from the garage won't be able to enter the house.
