No. But it must exhaust the heat outside somehow. This unit isn't placed in a window, but the exhaust is (usually). If you want, you can put the unit several feet from a window as long as you can run an exhaust hose there.
As far as running this in a closed room (one of the complaints here mentioned this), um, d'oh. AC units move heat and consume power doing that. If you try to use this to cool a closed room, all you'll do is to make the room warmer. That's basic physics.
Woot! Now 100+ woots for me!
That's 87 woots (Including Twelve Bats On Crack!), 12 Sellout.woots, 8 wine.woots and 4 kids.woots, and finally, 2 shirt.woots!

Report from unit purchased in last woot-off: used it in my rental house when the AC went out over the weekend of 3-5 AUG. Tenants reported that it kept the bedroom perfectly cool, but when deployed in the dining room (next to connected kitchen) and the home AC was set on fan to distribute the cool air throughout both 1,250 sq. ft. floors of this ranch house, the unit was only able to maintain temp at 84F on a 95F day. All windows are side sliders. No problems adapting the exhaust to them. So, perfect for my purposes; not so good as a replacement for your central AC unit.
