Nowadays, portable cooling has become an essential part of almost every home. However, if your home lacks the basic central air conditioning, then you don’t have to settle for the use of fans or window-mounted ACs, in order to keep you cool.
According to MovinCool.com, these portable air-conditioners can be placed quite easily anywhere in your home. An additional benefit of portable cooling is that it can be conveniently moved from one room to another.
A typical portable air conditioner unit needs to be plugged into a standard wall outlet. It will help to remove warm air as well as moisture from the room, eventually cooling the room.
The captured warm air, then needs to be exhausted through a nearby window, with the help of a vent hose. Any additional moisture that is removed from the air is finally condensed into water, which is disposed of in several different ways. This depends on the type of model of portable air conditioner. Some of the modern units even have an internal reservoir that collects the condensed water. This water can be manually removed from time to time.
A few models have a gravity drain as well as a condensate pump. This type of portable air conditioner uses an attached hose to pump the water out of a window or into a drain. There are also self-evaporative units available in the market that automatically evaporate moisture from the warm air. These units are ideal for areas with dry and hot climates.
