These units can provide effective air cooling when applied correctly. Typical cooling capacities range from 1.5 to 3kW, with discharge hose lengths of 1.5 - 2m being standard. Units operate from a standard three pin 13 amp 240v supply and condensate is either removed automatically (through the discharge hose) or manually via a collection tank.
For: Simple to install and operate. Minimal operator input. *Induces air change within the room.
Against: Requires a window or vent within 2m. Possible noise or pollution from an open window. *Induces air change within the room.
*Air change is positive if the induced air is clean and at a lower temperature than the room, or negative if warm or polluted. Induced air will invariably come from the open window and care is required in positioning the unit discharge hose.
