Rental Commercial Dehumidifier Applications

Americool LLC - Portable Dehumidifier

As the region’s largest supplier of rental dehumidification support services, we thought we’d share just a few ways our clients benefit from professional dehumidification services. Whether your need is for worker safety or product protection, just know that AmeriCool has the perfect solution for you. Here’s just three ways dehumidification services are employed:

1. Water Damage

Flooding is a major threat to business properties no matter what the cause is (burst pipes or natural disasters). It can ravage not just your building structure, but everything inside the establishment if water successfully penetrates it. Imagine your loss if your machines and products were to get drenched in water. When this happens, the ultimate solution is to dry it out quickly and thoroughly to prevent further damage and mold growth. Only a commercial dehumidifier can handle the job well.

2. Paintworks

Paintworks present specific challenges, especially when high humidity levels can cause coating failures. This is particularly true in shipyards when applying protective coatings to a ship. A commercial dehumidifier can create an environment that's conducive to paint application and curing. In addition, it will also make the work environment more comfortable for workers and promote productivity. So to keep projects on schedule and avoid reprocessing expenses, rent, or buy a dehumidifier.

3. Workplace Setting

Climate change can affect the humidity levels in workplaces and this impacts the health of the workers, causes structural damage to buildings, and affects overall sanitary conditions. In order to maintain the indoor air quality inside a building, dehumidifiers should be employed. The following industries can benefit from commercial dehumidifiers:

  • Food Processing Industry
  • Warehouse and storage facilities
  • Research facility and laboratories
  • Healthcare settings
  • Restaurants and Cafes
  • Book Depots and Libraries

A rental commercial dehumidifier is a practical means to remove excess moisture from an area. Contact Americool LLC for information regarding rental or purchase of commercial grade dehumidifiers.

Common Installation Questions on Using Americool's Portable Air Conditioner

Americool LLC - Portable Air Conditioners

Installing Americool's portable air conditioners is more straightforward than you may think. Just place it near a power source, plug it in and you are all set. However, here are some installation FAQ's for issues that are infrequently encountered.

1. My unit is plugged in, the display shows a red light on the Power button, but I can't get it to turn on?

You must push and hold for 1 second which mode you want the unit to operate in (Room or Spot). This 1-second delay is to prevent accidentally changing the mode the unit is operating in.

2. How high can I pump the condensate water?

All accessory condensate pumps can pump water 18 feet high. The WPC-15000 can pump water up to 30 feet.

3. Can you always duct the exhaust air into the drop ceiling?

Not always. Contact AmeriCool or your local distributor for example where it would not be ideal.

4. What is the farthest I can run the exhaust/cooling ducts?

It depends on your specific model. Click on the following link and select from the models on the AmeriCool's specification page.

5. Is it possible to block one of the cooling ducts?

AmeriCool does not recommend completely blocking a cold duct opening. Please call AmeriCool or your closest authorized distributor to explain your unique installation.

6. Can I use a smaller exhaust duct than recommended on the accessories section of the website?

No, you may overload the unit causing damage. Contact us to discuss your application.

7. Is it possible to use extension cords on AmeriCool?

Yes, but we recommend extreme caution. Be sure to use a safety listed and 3-wire grounding type extension cord. In addition, make sure the extension cord matches the voltage and current requirements of your unit.

8. Can we connect a remote thermostat to AmeriCool units?

Yes! Order our accessory WPCSENSOR and follow the directions to install.

9. Does AmeriCool have a remote display to control the unit away from the installation?

Yes! Order our accessory WPCREMOTE, follow the directions to install the wire harness and you can control the unit from 33 feet away!

10. How much clearance from the filters is needed for the units to operate correctly?

For units up to 3 tons (36,000 Btu/hr) 18" of clearance is required. For our 5 ton unit (WPC-15000) 24" of clearance is required.

If you have other concerns regarding the installation of Americool portable air conditioners, contact Americool LLC. Our technicians are ready to help you so you can immediately enjoy the cooling comfort of your new portable air conditioning unit.

General FAQ’s Regarding Renting Portable Air Conditioners

Americool LLC - Portable AC with heat pump

Below are answers to common questions we encounter from customers who seek portable air conditioner rental services in and around the greater Boston area:

1. How do AmeriCool's portable A/C units work?

Roll your AmeriCool unit into position, select room cooling or spot cooling, stand back, and enjoy the cold air. NOTE: If you are in an enclosed room, you will need to exhaust the warm air from the top of the unit out of the room. The drop ceiling space in a typical office will usually satisfy this requirement.

2. How many square feet does it cool?

As a general practice, 400 square feet per 12,000 Btu/h's (12,000 Btu/h's equals one ton of air conditioning). This, however, does not take into account other room factors that may affect heat load. Contact your local distributor for a complete recommendation.

3. How much temperature drop will you get between the room and supply (cold) air?

The temperature drop should be approximately 30°F in low humidity environments and at least 15°F in high humidity environments. (In high humidity environments, the unit is removing the humidity from the air)

4. Why does the unit have a water (condensate) tank? Why does the WPC-15000 have a condensate pump?

Only the WPC-15000 comes with a factory-installed condensate pump to account for a large amount of condensate (water) the unit is removing from the supply air.

While the unit is in operation it removes humidity out of the air. AmeriCool collects the condensation in the tank.

5. Do AmeriCool units come with a thermostat?

Yes, all units come with thermostats to read supply and return air temperature.

6. What is the difference between Room Cooling and Spot Cooling mode?

In-Room Cooling mode, the temperature setpoint is based on the return air coming into the unit (side). In Spot Cooling mode the temperature setpoint is based on the supply air (cold air leaving the unit).

7. What is AmeriCool's recommended maintenance schedule?

Regular washing and cleaning of the filters is the only recommended maintenance.

8. Can I remove the white cold air ducts?

Yes, remove the white nozzle duct from the attached flange and there will be a grill to protect curious fingers from the fan.
