If the A/C unit cools the intake air down at all, won't it be below ambient? It won't cool the room below ambient in that configuration, but it will cool the exhaust below ambient.Meaning, keep in mind what I initially said. It’s unlikely the cold air to be less than ambient but monitor it closely when you first set it up.
I have seen the exhaust from an A/C unit cool down metal objects in front of it low enough to condense water when exposed to ambient air. It is pretty common for the outside of the box to condense if you trap the exhaust somewhere. The exhaust can get pretty cold in my experience.
