Water cooled portable air conditioners offer an extremely efficient and effective way to control the climate in any sized room. Because water cooled air conditioners do not discharge large amounts of heat, they do not require exhaust ducting and are perfect for enclosed areas. Portable air conditioner units that are water cooled simply require access to an appropriate power source, a source of water, and a drain. They will connect to any standard sink, but can also be used in janitor and utility sinks, or used with any other type of waste water outlet. There are many applications where an air cooled air conditioner cannot be used. Because air cooled air conditioners require ventilation to discharge the heat that they generate, ducts must be run through windows or into ceiling plenums – or to other appropriate areas, such as a warehouse or other large spaces. This makes water cooled air conditioners more versatile than air cooled portable air conditioners.

Are you providing temporary cooling to a COVID-19 room under negative air pressure? Water cooled portable spot coolers maybe the solution.

Advantages of Water Cooled Portable Air Conditioners

There are many advantages to using a water cooled air conditioner to cool a space. Here are just a few:

  • No exhaust / ventilation / hot air outlet required.
  • No negative air pressure caused by ducting.
  • Water cooled air conditioners work better in areas with high ambient temperatures (because they use water, not surrounding air to cool the condenser).
  • They can be used in extremely hot areas – hotter than air cooled units can.
  • Lower electrical demand (5 ton air cooled single phase units require 50 amps / 5 ton water cooled require 30 amps).
