The Best Portable Air Conditioner depends on your application

Hi, I’m Erik with Portable Air, and we want to talk today a little about the best portable air conditioner in our review today. It’s hot and muggy out, you don’t have any A/C. That is a bad day for you. We’ve got a couple of different options that can help provide a little more cooling and a little better comfort in the environment you’re working with. Whether it’s commercial, industrial, new construction, we have a solution for the best portable air conditioner in each area of need.

The Best Portable Air Conditioner For Indoor Applications


Indoor Portable Air Conditioners, often called Spot Coolers, from Temp-Cool and Airrex range in anywhere from 1 ton to a 5-ton unit. They are easy to move, have a small footprint and are powered by a standard wall outlet. The good thing about these is you can put them anywhere you need to. They’re an all-in-one package. Heat and humidity are sent through the refrigeration cycle and then disperse as cool dry air through two supply nozzles. With the heat the unit takes in, it will require an area to exhaust it back out of the space. Each unit comes equipped with a “Ceiling Kit” to vent the hot air up into a dropped ceiling or directed out of a window or door. Spot coolers are a great way to get heat out of the space and to make a nice comfortable cooled area.

The Best Portable Air Conditioner For Outdoor Applications


Package units range in different sizes, anywhere from a 5-ton to 50-ton units with the most common size being our 25-ton units. They are an awesome solution due to their variety of applications. They can go on any job site. These units can be trailer mounted or placed with a forklift or crane. Once the unit is in place, the flexible duct is attached and cool air is distributed wherever it’s needed. They can be powered by an available breaker or by a temporary generator. Whether installed on the ground or the roof air conditioning can be supplied where it is needed.

The Best Portable Air Conditioner For Events


Let’s say you have an outdoor event in a tent. Maybe you are having a wedding or fundraiser in the summertime. It’s hot and it’s humid and you have 200 guests that are going to be inside that tent. The event is not going to go well without A/C. The best portable air conditioner for this situation is our Vertical Package Units. They connect right into your tent walls to make a nice seamless look from inside. This is another very user-friendly piece of equipment that will ensure everyone at your event will never have to sweat a drop… least, if they don’t want to!

When your air conditioner fails it’s never a good thing, but it doesn’t have to be a miserable experience. There is a solution. It doesn’t matter what type of space you need to be cooled off, rest assured, there is a portable air conditioner solution to meet your need!

Spot Coolers are a great option when considering portable cooling for your building. Spot Coolers can quickly be set up in any location and for a variety of reasons. Once set up, Spot Coolers do not have to be constantly monitored, making them easy to maintain. Here are 5 reasons why you may want to rent a Spot Cooler for your location


How To Save Money With Portable Air

Spot Coolers might be your perfect solution and your wallet's best friend. You’ve got a lot to consider as a business when it comes to failed AC. You have to consider the comfort and well being of employees and guests, but also decide whether or not to close until repairs can be completed. A 3 day AC repair would mean the loss of $93,000 of revenue for the average U.S. small business if they closed for that time period. In the big picture, renting spot coolers would be much more cost effective than losing those business hours.

Did You Know? The average Summer temperature in the South East U.S. and South East U.S. is 93 degrees and the average time it takes to repair or replace a business's HVAC system is 2-3 days.  According to the IRS and the Small Business Administration, the average U.S. small business makes $31,000 in sales revenue per day. That means if a business is forced to close for repairs, potential lost revenue could be devastating.

Even if your business only faces 2 AC outages per year, whether that be from system failure, storm damage, or power outages, the average U.S. small business could save over $180,000 in income per year, simply by not having to shut down business while repairs are underway.

Renting Air Conditioners

So let’s face it, whether it’s the age of your air conditioning system, or some type of equipment damage, your HVAC unit will eventually need service or repair and you may have to consider renting an air conditioner.  That’s going to produce several unique problems especially for folks in the south east and south west United States in states like Florida or Texas. While your business’s air conditioning is down, you’ll have guests and employees facing indoor temperatures of up to 90 degrees.

That’s when you need a solution immediately from a committed expert in the HVAC industry.  For temporary air conditioning rentals designed to work in office settings or even industrial warehouses, one of your best options are portable Spot Coolers.

Spot Coolers are fully functional self- contained air conditioning units. With adjustable supply vents, you can direct air where it is needed, and since they plug into standard 110V outlets they can be placed virtually anywhere. Processed air is vented through a duct into a drop ceiling or out a door/window, and supplied air helps the room feel cool, crisp, and in many cases helps reduce standard room humidity.
