AC conspiracy

Why arent there portable AC or self contained heat pumps that have a hot and cool side that can be connected to duct work? It's always like pic related so you can't vent the cold when you just want heat.
I want to be able to just switch the hoses around when I want heat. Added benefit of being a dehumidifier.
I only need to heat/cool a 600sqft area. I need something fairly compact that can hook up to duct work to circulate air.
So what gives? Maybe I'm dumb.

    It's called a heat pump
    Just blow the hot air into your house. Entropy wins every time.

      I can't even imagine what level of moronation brought this idea into being.

      Why the frick would you have ductwork but not an AC/heater?

      Why the frick do you think you have to switch the hoses around on a heat pump? That's not how they work.

      Did you even bother to think about where those hoses are getting their air, and that you've somehow managed to combine the worst problems of a 2-hose and single-hose unit at the same time?

      >claims one of the rear hoses is intake
      >one is exhaust
      >both go out window
      Wtf
      >has separate intake filter
      So which is the intake?!?!?!
      >has outlet that can't be hooked to duct work
      Thanks for nothing

      >So which is the intake?!?!?!

      Like 99% of ACs, dual-hose portables contain two completely separate air paths. One uses the hoses to draw air from outside, flow it over a heat exchanger, then dump the hot (or cold, depending on mode) air back outside. The other heat exchanger is inside the vents on the body of the unit. Air is drawn in from inside the space to be cooled/heated, passed over the heat exchanger, and then dumped back into the same space.

      This way, you're not drawing cold/hot air from outside through the cracks in the doors/windows/wherever at the same time you're trying to condition the room, the way the shitty, single-hose portables do.

      Where?

      This is literally what a heat pump does only with a 4 way valve in the actual unit which reverses the process with the refrigerant. It's done this way instead as to condition the air, doing it with the airflow alone would cause condensation/dry air issues.

    I'm guessing you'd already be in the price range of a split AC. Also the second level of improvement for these units is the dual duct, where it takes outside air to circulate heat out, which means that your variant would have 3 hoses.

    This being PrepHole though, you could easily make a hood for any given unit that hooks up its output to a generic hose.

    Are you certain that portable AC's that also have heat don't just use an electric element for the heating function?

      The one I had did not have heat just AC. But it produces heat that should be sent outside the house. As all ACs do.

    Yes, you are dumb. The thing has a hose for hot air. So just put the unit outside, run the hose inside, and call it a day. Simple as.

    Couldn't you just run it with the ducting taken off and let the power heat the room instead?
    This is a really weird situation because even my brit AC has a decent heating function too.
