Portable air conditioning units have given homeowners many reasons to rejoice. For one, they are a cost-efficient substitute to the money-milking central air conditioning units that most houses have already installed. They also provide a wide range of options that benefit the user such as a built-in humidifier, a supplemental cooling sequence, or even heat pumps.
Otherwise known as a spot cooler, these portable air conditioners commonly come with an “air-cooled” system which is generally ideal for a typical home. Air-cooled units provide flexibility, portability, and a high-powered system that can cool down a room in a short amount of time.
Today, there are a wide range of portable air conditioners being sold but air-cooled units still remain the heavy favorite out of the other systems. However, specialty systems have also increased in popularity due to their importance and remain a fast growing product on the market.
There are certain applications that air-cooled systems can’t be used for. For example, a sterile environment such as a surgery suite can’t allow exhaust air. In addition, the air that circulates through the system needs to have a HEPA filter in order to maintain the sterility of the delicate room.
One of the problems that manufacturers had was to develop a product that circulates the air in a cooling loop. Water-cooled units were developed with a dedicated closed-loop system that can be used in environments meant to stay germ-free. Hospitals have begun to use water-cooled air conditioning units because of their excessive capacity to keep their surgical team cool during operations. Additionally, surgical units contain all of the items needed to operate a water-cooled system such as a water source and a drain.
The fusion of both air-cooled and water-cooled units, these systems provide the comforts and functionalities of both types. By utilizing a heat exchanger to accept the surrounding heat, the air-handling unit cools it down and provides cool evaporated air to the area. Similar to a water-cooled unit, it only circulates interior air through the evaporator.
The heated air is ejected through a ventilation tube that can run outside. The cooled air is pushed back into the line coming from the central unit and the process then repeats itself, creating a concentrated form of ambient air to the designated area. These units are essentially more high powered than standard systems and remain consistently cool even at high temperatures.
