Fuengirola, Espana (PressExposure) February 01, 2012 -- Portable air conditioners are easy and quick to use, as they do not involve any installation, they are just plug in and go.
Most consumers have very basic information about portable air conditioning units that seems to be not at all interesting or beneficial, but hold on, there is a lot more to portable air conditioners than just the basics.
With the onset of damp weather, it is becoming more apparent that the need to have a solution and it would seem that a portable air conditioner has many advantages; they are easy to move from one place in the home to another, thus making it the ideal cooling system solution for your home office or industrial site.
Portable air conditioning is perfect for use as a spot cooler in the home and is an excellent choice for saving money as only one unit needs to be purchased and it can be moved easily to where you need it, being mounted on castors and with hardly any weight to it is the perfect solution, furthermore as only one room is cooled at a time instead of the whole house, the total energy consumption is very low as compared to other air conditioning systems.
If the consumer is looking for advantages and money saving appliances, portable air conditioners provides all this, for example the average efficiency is in the 8 to 10 range but some are as high as 15, which is 50 percent better than older central air conditioners.
The size of these portables is very advantageous as they can fit in a corner or against a wall, and more importantly even the small units remove around 35 pints of moisture per day from the room air. The heat-exchange principle is used as with other air conditioners to cool and dehumidify the air, the operating principle is similar to a window air conditioner as the room air circulates over cold evaporator coils to cool and dehumidify it inside the unit, and the room air is exhausted outdoors after flowing over the hot condenser.
Modern units today have electronic controls with most models and the user can set the desired room temperature, blower speed, start and stop timer, and operation mode, cool, dehumidify, and heat, if that is not enough most conditioners also have hand-held remote controls with which you can conveniently change all the settings.
These units are worth their weight in gold, and include a built-in cleaner also with oscillating louvers to distribute the cool air throughout the room, if this is not required you can switch off the louvers to direct the flow of air towards yourself.
A spokesman for Climachill air conditioning specialists based on the South Coast of the UK said "today portable air conditioners are all singing and all dancing units, and if the home owner or small business does not want to go down the road of installing central air conditioning then this is the answer for both summer and winter use, we have a large stock of units and we can advise on the correct size fit for purpose to ensure the unit does its work to keep an area cool".
