A spot cooler that is either air-cooled or water-cooled, will depend on the temperature of your home and the availability of water hookups.
But, what are the main differences between an air-cooled and water-cooled spot cooler? Both kinds of spot coolers are available, so this question is often asked. The difference between the two types of spot coolers can be explained by saying that those areas with very high temperatures need a spot cooling system that is water-cooled. Areas with more moderate temperatures require spot coolers that have air cooling.
A spot cooler works in two ways to remove heat from the room. It either blows air on the evaporator coil, which is called air-cooled, or it runs water on the evaporator chamber (water-cooled). Each one has its purpose and you should choose which one is right for you.
Do We Need A Water Cooled Spotcooler?
In high temperatures, water-cooled spot cooling coolers are more common. They are more portable than air-cooled spot coolers because they need to be connected to water sources, such as a hose bib or sink. The hose kits make it easy for you to install the system, and connect it to the water source.
You will need a water-cooled cooler to cool the room off if temperatures are higher than 115 degrees Fahrenheit. Water-cooled systems will work better if temperatures are high. If you have difficulty connecting to a water source, an air-cooled system can be used.
Or, Do you need an air-cooled spot cooler?
Air-cooled spot coolers run air, not water, over the coils. Therefore they do NOT need to be connected up to a source of water. This allows them to be set up anywhere they wish. Air-cooled spot coolers work best in areas where temperatures do not exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit. They aren’t quite as powerful as water-cooled ones, but they work in areas that don’t get very hot.
Spot Cooler Vs. Central AC
Spot coolers can be used to cool one area of a space or an entire building. Central AC systems, on the other hand, are intended to cool an entire building. Air coolers work in the same way as central AC systems. The warm air passes through the evaporator and is then cooled. Any excess water is captured. The cool air is then channeled through the nozzle, which captures and drains away excess water. Spot coolers use a nozzle to concentrate air on a single area.
The major difference between a central AC system or a spot cooler AC is that the condenser, as well as the evaporator, reside within the same unit. In a central AC unit, the two components are kept separate with the condenser and actual AC located outside the house.
A spot cooler is therefore different from a regular air conditioner. Spot coolers continuously cool the air until it reaches a set temperature. A central AC system can take hot air, pump it outside and draw in cool air.
Both central AC systems and spot cooling units effectively cool an area while maintaining fresh air circulation. Spot cooling systems are more economical than central AC systems and require less installation. Spot cooling is often used in conjunction with central AC.
What Makes Our Spotcoolers Cooler Than the Competition?
These coolers are perfect for offices because they are very quiet. We also provide water-cooled fans for rent. The heavy-duty wheels make it easy to move the units from one place to another. When you need extra cooling, a spot cooler rental is a quick, affordable solution. The savings in energy costs can be substantial. It’s the difference between keeping a single server rack or an office area cool compared to air conditioning an entire building.
Easy installation, even for someone with no experience.
We have many spot coolers to choose from, ranging in weight from 1 ton to 12 tonnes to meet your site’s needs.
It’s simple to control the temperature settings and use the preset automated options.
