All of the above, at one time or another. Im using a mini split now, but used a 12k but dual hose for a number of runs to cool 1,600watts unvented.
Keeping the heat from the exhaust/intake tubing out of the room is key to efficiency. I slid 6" insulated flex duct over the a/c tubing. it worked ok. if your just dumping the hot air into the basement, window units are cheaper and more efficient..just plug it through the g room wall, build a vented enclosure to scrub it.
or whatever it takes, f@ck buying it, if you can grow it...right
