Unfortunately if you plan to use the unit on the AC function you MUST have venting. If you use it as a dehumidifier or a heating unit, you don't need vent. Without venting, the machine will actually blow out more hot air out the vent port than it does cold air out the cooling ports so it would heat up your house slowly instead of cool it down.
