Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 8 months ago.

This unit does not have a vent outside. There is a divider behind this panel and air is sucked in from one side of the vent and blows out the other side. This area behind the vent is where the compressor is located so it cools the sealed system by circulating the air in this fashion.
