What is Spot Cooling?

Spot Cooling is the ability to cool a specific area without the cost of installing a permanent air conditioning system. AirPac's spot coolers deliver cold air to the specific area where it is needed, with minimal installation.  AirPac's spot coolers can be easily moved from one room to another, turned on to start delivering cool air instantly.   AirPac Rents provides easy, affordable, and adaptable solutions to any heat sensitive problem.

An air conditioner cannot create cooling, it can only relocate the heat.  This heat is removed in two ways, as an actual temperature drop, and as water.  The refrigerant carries the heat outdoors where it is discharged: while the water, called condensate, is collected separately and pumped or drained away. When installed properly, most air conditioners perform these operations automatically.  The exception to this is the portable air conditioner, which must be vented and drained by the user; but it is these features which give the portable air conditioner its flexibility.

AirPac's portable air conditioners use refrigerant and are very much like the standard window unit, except that it usually comes on wheels and is meant to operate on the room's floor.  They plug into , and a "vent" must be installed through a nearby window or a drop ceiling with tiles.  A condensate pan must also be dumped periodically, when in use; although some models also come with a condensate pump kit or as an option to automatically drain the water.

Developed mostly for commercial use, the portable air conditioner was designed to supply extra cooling to heat sensitive areas during extreme conditions.  They are quite useful in protecting equipment and inhabitants from over heating when the temperature demands overcome the building's permanent HVAC system.

AirPac Rents portable spot coolers install with minimal effort and can be used in offices, computer rooms, tents, special events, boardrooms and the bedrooms.
