A Portable air conditioner, also known as a spot cooler, is a temporary cooling solution when larger a/c systems fail or require maintenance. They are also used in some applications for permanent cooling. This can be smaller server rooms or small equipment rooms.

They are called portable because they come with castors or wheels and can be moved around easily. Portable AC units tend to be smaller than permanent units and so can fit in through standard doorways and entryways. This also limits their capacity.

Portable a/c units should not be confused with mobile a/c units. Mobile a/c units also come with wheels but then to be towed or trucked to a site as they can be much larger. Because they must be set up outside, this limited their portability.

The are many use cases for portable air conditioners. One is for cooling areas when the main air conditioner has broken down or requires repair. These are temporary. The other is for locations where there is no proper infrastructure to place traditional a/c units. There is either no window space or there is no access to the outside for return air. Another is to augment existing cooling temporarily. This includes events like conferences and exhibitions where individual stalls can expect sudden increases in people and additional heat.

Portable a/c units are extremely versatile and with the rapid advancement of technology will find more and more places for its use.

                The server room of any company is the brains of the operation. It isn’t the brains of the whole operation as we can’t discount the work and input of the employees, but it is definitely the brains of all the computers in the building. With thousands and maybe even millions of calculations happening  every second, server rooms can get hot and this is definitely not a good thing. When computers and servers get hot they start to work slower, reducing efficiency and productivity in work. When it gets too hot, serious problems can occur and damage might happen. Computer cooling is needed in situations like these and here’s why.

Server Error

                Servers are the brains of your whole computer network. Imagine what would happen if your brain overheats and just shuts off. The rest of your body would shut off with it turning you into a vegetable. For the time being your company loses work which means losing possible profit. This is why computer cooling is important and as an added line of defense, it is advisable that you get cooling units with built in dehumidification technology. Why need a dehumidifier?

Water is the enemy

                We all know water and computers just don’t go together. At one point, we’ve all seen what happens when someone accidentally spills water all over their laptop — spark, spark, dead. Humidity works the same way, just slower and less noticeable. With enough humidity though, your computers can suffer and eventually get destroyed. Get dehumidification solutions to prevent that.
