Evaporative: Understand What You're Getting

We’ll do our best to ensure you have a painless renting experience, which is why we’d highly recommend you check what power is available to you. We’d hate to arrive and find out power isn’t available for the machine. Or that on turning on the air conditioner, the circuit pops because too much power is being drawn, resulting in critical computers or equipment being powered down. You can check out the plug types our machines use: HERE. Or you can select a machine to rent HERE and it will tell you the type of plug it uses.
Imagine a cold glass or lemonade with ice in it. Now, imagine the outside of that glass. There is water dripping down the outside. That’s condensation. The cold coils on our air conditioners also create condensation. We have two options to deal with condensation.
The most common solution is for us to collect condensation in a 5-gallon tank. When the tank fills, it shuts off the cooling portion of the machine (The fans still circulate non-cooled air), until the tank is emptied. Or, we can install a pump that can pump the water to a drain (Sink, toilet…) for us to put the condensation.
Place to put Hot Air
All air conditioners need somewhere to put the heat they are extracting from your space. The most frequent solution we employ is to put the hot air above a suspended ceiling, though we can also go out of windows or doors.
Height of your ceiling
Letting us know the height of your ceiling helps, as it allows us to bring the proper amount of ducting to reach your ceiling. This is particularly helpful for anything over 8 feet high.
Suitable for Indoor Use?
We emphatically recommend you NOT use evaporative cooling indoors. They are best used in outdoor spaces, or where there is a consistent fresh air source. To understand why, read how they work below.
How Does it Work?
Evaporative coolers generate cooling by the process of water evaporation. When water evaporates, it absorbs heat from the surrounding air. Which is how cooling is generated.
Evaporative coolers are not viable for indoor applications, because they generate humidity. If the space isn’t well ventilated, humidity will accumulate until it reaches dew point. In natural speak, that means objects in your room will begin to drip because the air is so full of water. Evaporative coolers are best used in factories, shops, garages, and outdoor spaces – because they have adequate ventilation in those settings.

Requirements to Work:
Power is needed, but nothing special. 115 volt power, with a standard 15-amp plug type.
Water is needed. The units comes with a reservoir at the bottom, however, when the water evaporates out of that reservoir, it needs to be replenished. We recommend a hose connection with constant water supply.
