A Portable Evaporative Cooler's Advantages

benefits of Portacool evaporative coolers In most situations where conventional air conditioning is ineffective or too expensive, Portacool evaporative coolers make sense as a flexible cooling solution. In addition, a Portacool outperforms fans in terms of effectiveness. Although fans are very effective at moving air throughout your room, they only serve to move the hot air around without offering any cooling benefits. Even on the hottest summer days, a portable cooler will help you stay cool and comfortable.

Why a Portacool is a great cooling option is as follows:

  • Evaporative coolers have a one-pass cooling capacity of up to 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Even when you are unable to capture and hold the cooled air, this still creates a zone of cool air.
  • The majority of Portacool units do not require installation. Just plug them in when you find an outlet. Then, for continuous cooling, you can either rely on the large water reservoir or connect it to a regular hose.
  • Efficient Use: The hot air around you provides the majority of the energy for evaporative cooling. Therefore, Portacool coolers can produce cool air with roughly the same amount of energy as a fan.
  • Easy to Move: Portacool evaporative coolers can be moved around the site with the help of their sturdy casters or rubberized wheels. They can also be carried by one or two people if necessary.

Evaporative cooling technology is dominated by Portacool. For a variety of uses, our evaporative coolers are ideal. We have a model that will suit your needs, whether you require a cooling solution for your home or for your place of business. Our portable evaporative coolers can be moved around easily, ensuring that you receive cooling benefits exactly where they are most needed.

Evaporative coolers made by Portacool are simple to use and maintain. There's no setup necessary. Your Portacool arrives fully put together. Simply take it out of the box, put water in the reservoir, plug it in, and turn it on. You'll experience significant cooling in just a few minutes.

While some regular upkeep is necessary to ensure optimal performance, it is very simple to complete. Once per week, you should empty the reservoir of water. Move the item to the area where you want the water to drain to accomplish this. Then take out the drain plug, which is on the evaporative cooler's bottom. You can refuel the reservoir and resume use once all the water has been drained.

You must take out the evaporative media before storing your Portacool at the end of the season. The evaporative media will slide out of the Portacool flat on top once the screws holding it in place are removed. Next, clean and dry the reservoir. The evaporative media should then be reinserted, and the media flap should be secured with a screw. We advise getting a cover to cover your Portacool while it's being stored over the winter.

Determining which Portacool model is the best evaporative cooler for your patio, home workshop, or business can be difficult with so many options available. The following advice will assist you in navigating the selection process so that you can select the ideal model for your unique requirements.

How to Size an Evaporative Cooler

The most crucial aspect to take into account when selecting an evaporative cooler is the size of the space you're trying to cool. You might find that it is uncomfortable cold if you buy a model that is too powerful for the area being cooled. You might not get the desired cooling effects if your evaporative cooler is underpowered for the size of your space. To find the evaporative cooler that will best meet your needs, be sure to measure the area you're trying to cool.

You can use the following guide to choose the right-sized evaporative cooler for your area. The amount of fresh air that circulates through your space each minute is measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM), which is how much cooling power is available.

recommended cooling power table

Additional elements that may affect the size of evaporative cooler that is appropriate for your needs include:

  • The suggestions in the aforementioned chart are for spaces with conventional 8-foot ceilings. You'll need to increase the CFM level of the cooler you select if you're trying to cool a room with ceilings higher than 8 feet.
  • Sunlight: Increase the CFM level by 20% if there is a lot of sun in the area you are trying to cool.
  • Increase the CFM level by 20% when there are regularly more than two people occupying the space being cooled.
  • Appliances: Increase the CFM level by 20% if heat-generating appliances are being used in the area you're trying to cool.

The following characteristics may affect your choice of the ideal evaporative cooler for your requirements:

  • Hose hookups: Some evaporative coolers come with a hose connection, while others are just equipped with a water reservoir. Choosing an evaporative cooler model with a hose hookup will best suit your needs if you intend to use it continuously.
  • Opting for an evaporative cooler with oscillating louvers will help move the air side to side, allowing you to more effectively cool the entire space when you're trying to cool a large area.
  • Evaporative coolers with casters make it simple to move the cooler and ensure that you always get cooling benefits in the exact location you need them.
  • Evaporative coolers made of ABS plastic are incredibly durable. These robust models are excellent for commercial settings.
  • Capacity of the water reservoir will determine how long you can run the evaporative cooler without having to refill the water if you don't have a hose hookup. In these circumstances, selecting a cooler with a sizable reservoir will enable you to use it for extended periods of time without checking the water level All Portacool evaporative coolers have an automatic shutoff when the water level in the reservoir falls below a certain level to prevent damaging the components.
  • Air filtration: An evaporative cooler's air filtration system assists in removing allergens like pollen and dust particles. Select an evaporative cooler with a good filtration system for cleaner air.

Reading ahead

Evaporative coolers may have been referred to as "swamp coolers" in the past. Although it is frequently used, this term does not adequately describe what these devices do. Almost any space where there is access to outdoor air can benefit from using evaporative coolers as a cost-effective, energy-efficient cooling solution. While dry climates offer the best environment to maximize the benefits of a swamp cooler, you can still achieve very effective cooling in more humid environments

How evaporative swamp coolers function

Evaporative coolers use the evaporation process to produce significant cooling effects. The highest energy particles are released when water vaporizes and turns into a gas, which lowers the temperature. This is the overarching idea that determines how effective your evaporative cooler is.

A pad inside your evaporative cooler called evaporative media gives the evaporation process a lot of surface area. The media becomes saturated with water as it pours out of the evaporative cooler's reservoir. Hot outside air is drawn into the cooler by a fan. The water molecules on the media's surface turn into gas as this hot air passes through them, resulting in a sharp drop in air temperature. The newly cooled air will then be circulated throughout the room by the fan, enabling you to keep the temperature at a comfortable level.

How efficient are evaporative coolers?

Using an evaporative cooler will produce significant cooling results. A Portacool can reduce the air's temperature by up to 30 degrees Fahrenheit in dry climates. In humid climates, you won't be able to cool to the same degree, but your Portacool will still provide significant advantages. All of our Portacool models are created at our Center, Texas, manufacturing facility. Our plant uses Portacools to keep workers safe and comfortable, and even in this hot, muggy environment, our evaporative coolers work effectively.

Do evaporative coolers provide room cooling?

When it comes to cooling a room, evaporative coolers can be just as effective as air conditioning. It's essential that you buy the right size evaporative cooler for the area you're trying to cool in order to achieve proper cooling. Additionally, in order to operate your evaporative cooler, you must have access to an outdoor air source.

To ensure you can cool virtually any size space, Portacool offers a variety of evaporative cooler models. The Portacool 510, our newest model, is incredibly small and offers the ideal solution for residential applications and other small spaces. One of our Jetstream or Cyclone models might provide better results for commercial applications and other large spaces.

What distinguishes an evaporative cooler from an air conditioner?

air conditioning system Chemical refrigerants are used by air conditioners to lower the air's temperature and remove moisture from the area being cooled. This cooled, conditioned air is dispersed throughout the space by a fan to maintain the desired temperature. The air's removed heat and moisture are then released outside. Air conditioning must be used in an enclosed indoor space in order to function properly.

Evaporative coolers don't use any refrigerants or other potentially hazardous chemicals. Instead, the cooler's cooling effects are achieved by evaporating water that is present on the media's surface. They are therefore a much more environmentally friendly alternative to air conditioning. While water is used to cool the air, evaporative coolers don't produce mist or damage equipment in the room being cooled

Evaporative coolers' maximum temperature

Your climate conditions will affect the cooling benefits your evaporative cooler will provide. In hot, dry climates, evaporative coolers work best. Your evaporative cooler can reduce the air's temperature by up to 30 degrees Fahrenheit in these circumstances. In more humid climates, you will still experience significant cooling effects, but it's likely that you won't be able to feel as much of a temperature drop. A more reasonable temperature drop in humid conditions would be around 10 to 15 degrees Fahrenheit.

Use a Portacool to Remain Cool.

There is always a Portacool that will meet your unique needs thanks to its more than a dozen different evaporative cooler models. Additionally, you can combine various models to more efficiently provide the cooling you require in large spaces.
