Why is a Portable Air Conditioner called a Spot Cooler ??

As the term Spot Cooler implies, the portable air conditioner can only effectively cool one spot or area. Portable spot coolers are not meant to replace central air conditioning. The spot cooler is meant to supplement, or in emergency situations take the place of central air that has been shut off due to maintenance, theft of critical components or break down. The spot cooler can be placed in the right position to cool the person or equipment as needed for these situations. At times, computer rooms (server rooms) and other areas need supplemental cooling. This is a perfect fit for the spot cooler. The spot cooler is brought in to help the existing central air system without the cost of a major equipment upgrade. Is the portable air conditioner the only equipment that could be called a spot cooler? No because other types of spot coolers are available. The evaporative cooler that is manufactured by Port-A-Cool® is the best example of a spot cooler that is not a portable air conditioner. These evaporative coolers will effectively cool many areas that a portable air conditioner can not cool due to the size of the area. The evaporative cooler can lower the temperature of the air 10 to 25 degrees. The cost to run the Port-A-Cool® spot cooler is also much less than that of portable air conditioners. A typical Port-A-Cool® spot cooler can be run for less than $1 per day. So for all your spot cooler needs remember to call an expert. Spot Cooling Systems has been in business since 1984 providing spot coolers for rent and purchase. Please...

What is a portable air conditioner?

Portable air conditioners are, of course, portable.  A portable air conditioner is used to supplement, replace, used in an emergency, and back up situations.  Some server rooms out grow their permanent air conditioning system. A portable air conditioner is used to supplement the system providing an inexpensive solution to cool the server room.  In the situation where an air conditioning system needs to be replaced but the cost is prohibitive, the portable air conditioner is a viable alternative that is less expensive than a complete system replacement. In times when the primary air conditioning system is offline for maintenance, or breakdown, Portable air conditioners will be brought in on a temporary basis providing the cooling that is needed.  Some entities like to have a portable air conditioner standing by just in case of an emergency.  These units will be placed where needed and not turned on until an emergency happens and the portable air conditioner is needed. The portable air conditioner has all the same components that your home or office air conditioning system has only it is fully self contained and on casters for easy deployment.  When installing a portable air conditioner you must remember that it needs a place to exhaust the hot air that is removed for the space to be cooled. A portable air conditioner must have somewhere to place the heat that is removed in order to cool the room.  Most commercial applications only require a portable air conditioner to be vented through the ceiling via a hot air duct connected to a ceiling panel.  In some cases the hot air can be duct-ed out a...

Portable Cooling Strategies for IT Wiring Closets and Server Rooms, Part 1

First we must specify the appropriate temperature at which we must maintain for the proper operation of your equipment.  IT equipment manufacturers usually provide a maximum temperature in which their devices are designed to operate and to guarantee performance and reliability.  This temperature is usually 104 degrees (40C).  This is the maximum.  Operating at that temperature generally will not provide the same level of performance and longevity as operating at lower temperatures.  Because of this, IT equipment manufacturers publish a recommended operating temperature for their equipment.  Recommended operating temperatures are between 70F (21C) and 75F (24C) with the goal of no higher than 77F (25C). The ExtraCooler portable air conditioner is available in various sizes and electrical voltages to meet every wiring closet and server room needs.  Spot Coolers are perfect for maintaining the recommended operating temperatures in your IT Closet or Server Room.  They are mobile, easy to operate and built to last.  For everyday, weekend, emergency or contingency planning, give us a call and your cooling needs will be taken care of by the experts at Spot Cooling...

How Much Condensate will a 5 gallon tank hold

There isn’t an average output since the condensation is determined by many different factors such as the relative humidity and temperature.  Our SCT Series Portable Spot Cooling Systems come with an internal 5 gallon condensate tank that turns the machine off once it is full. On a cloudy day with 92% humidity outside, the internal 5 gallon tank would fill within 24 hours.  That is,  if the unit was set up in the parking lot.  Most commercial building air systems dry the air to an average 20% relative humidity.  This allows the SCT Series 5 gallon tank to fill in 3 to 5 days.  Keep in mind most buildings turn the central air off at night and weekends.  Dryer the air, longer it takes to fill up.  Our units in Phoenix, AZ rarely condensate We verified this with a customer  who is located by the Bush Airport in Houston, Texas.  He gets three days between the time to empty tank over the past...
