Many are becoming increasingly dependant on air conditioning in everyday life. It is expected, if not demanded, that air conditioning should be everywhere. This has triggered a sizable increase in the amount of portable air conditioners available on the market.
There are many portable air conditioners on the market, some are small and quiet and others are rattlers that produce plenty of cold air but also require a small power plant to run them. What should be looked for in a commercial portable air conditioner?
The key factors to consider for portable air conditioners are efficiency and reliability. Efficiency means the amount of cold air that is produced versus the amount of power required to produce it. Many commercial offices have limited power available, most of which is often used by IT equipment.
Running multiple portable air conditioners can risk tripping out the power. The other factor to consider is reliability. Commercial portable air conditioners are largely used when the building’s main air conditioning has broken down.
With this being the case, the last thing needed is the back up air conditioner to fail. A good all round portable unit is AC 048. AC 048 produces 4.8kw of cooling capacity whilst running at 8 AMPS single phase.
There is a lot going on inside portable air conditioners, so they do create noise. However, Active Air Rentals’ air conditioners have been fitted with additional thermal and acoustic insulation to facilitate silencing.
When purchasing a portable air conditioner care should be taken as all portable air conditioners create hot air as well as cold air and the hot air will need to be exhausted somewhere. Make sure that the air can be vented somewhere away from the area that has to be cooled before renting or buying the unit.
