If you are wondering if it is still necessary to run the air conditioner during winter, the answer is YES! Even in cold weather, air conditioners will help maintain comfortable and safe temperatures indoors. Even better, some portable air conditioners are designed with a heat pump which can generate heat indoors during these transitional seasons when the temperature can fluctuate from day to day. With the use of electrically-operated valves, air conditioners with heat pumps invert the direction of freon flow as the thermostat setting is switched to from cool to heat. These types of commercial portable air conditioners are designed to serve a dual-purpose.
Additionally, in the winter as the temperature drops, moisture can build up on the inside of windows and glass doors. A portable air conditioner will dehumidify the air keeping the windows and doors free of moisture.
During these transitional seasons, like spring and fall, a portable air conditioner with heat pump is ideal over a traditional AC, especially if the business is interested in lowering energy consumption. Dual-purpose equipment adds additional savings because it eliminates the need to buy two types of equipment for heating and cooling.
