Considerations When Purchasing or Renting A Portable Conditioner

7 April 2020

Americool Commercial portable air conditioning units

Portable air conditioners are ideal cooling solutions for business structures like offices, facilities and commercial spaces. Whether you are planning to buy or rent, weigh first the following factors to come up with a sound decision.

Cooling Output

The cooling output for PACs is calculated in BTU or British Thermal Units per hour with the higher rating implies greater capacity. The BTU rating is labeled in the Energy Guide of each portable AC unit. Take this into account when comparing different models. Make sure to opt for a capacity that complies with the square footage of the area that you need to cool.

Placement Constraints

Portable air conditioners may require electrical modification to your use space. Prior to purchasing, make sure you have the enough power and the correct receptacle in all spaces where you might conceivably use the portable cooling asset. The unit will likely be placed near a window for venting poses so plan your electrical considerations accordingly.

Energy Efficiency

The Efficient Ratio or EER rating of a unit can also be seen on its Energy Guide label. The higher the rating means the set has better energy efficiency performance. Before you decide, scrutinize each available model and choose the one with the highest EER rating that meets your budget.

Condensate Choices

When a portable air conditioner cools, it condenses moisture out of the air. There are several options in terms of release. Essentially, cheaper portable air conditioner units have a collector pan that needs to be drained frequently. While self-evaporating air conditioners usually come expensive as it has the ability to release the condensate out by means of the air exhaust hose, or by reusing the liquid to cool the coils.

Sound Level

Portable air conditioners are standalone units equipped with a compressor, so expect and plan for the increased noise as compared to central HVAC systems. With that said, our system offerings are the most quiet portable HVAC systems on the market today.

Why Consider A Portable Air Conditioner with Heat Pump During Transitional Season?

17 March 2020

Americool LLC - Portable AC with heat pump

Looking for a heating system that is convenient to use during climate swings? AmeriCool highly recommends the year-round efficiency of portable air conditioner with heat pumps. With that said, today we’ll discuss why heat pump systems are particularly efficient during transitional weather seasons.

Energy Efficient

A portable AC with heat pump system has both an indoor and outdoor component. When the unit is set to heating mode, the outdoor unit pulls thermal energy from surrounding air. The energy is then moved to the refrigerant line, which stretches from the outdoor to indoor unit. The indoor unit then utilizes this thermal energy to heat up the air and circulate it throughout the space. The heat pump requires less energy when compared to other heating systems because it moves thermal energy most efficiently.


This special portable air conditioner produces heat and cool air by using a component called reversing valve. The valve inverts the course of refrigerant within the indoor and outdoor unit, depending on which function you set it. Since this equipment is dual purpose, your system’s footprint is minimized.


Because of these advantages, users enjoy significant savings on their energy bill. The long-term savings will pay big dividends over the lifespan of the system. To understand the true value of heat pump systems versus other alternatives, contact AmeriCool LLC to learn more.

Understanding the Functionality and Value of Heat Pumps

10 March 2020

The heating, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) industry does itself no service in defining dual heating and cooling technologies in the singular term “Heat Pump”. We explain this to consumers on a regular basis along with privilege of educating them all on the overwhelming financial value that these systems offer to both the residential and commercial consumer. So, let’s discuss heat pumps for a moment. Dual-purpose portable air cooling and heating systems requires less energy to deliver effective environment control. The AC/heat pumps leverage the natural properties of thermal dynamics to transfer heat from one space to another. The only purpose of the electricity is to run the compressor and the fans, not to produce heat. Thereby, minimal energy is required. Business owners and home owners alike save on electric bills when they opt to use the portable AC unit with heat pump versus the common practice of using portable space heaters.

Because of the ability of heat pumps to produce both cooling and heating services with less electricity, most make the wise decision to choose heat pumps as the HVAC system of choice.

So, a very quick rundown on heat pumps, but we stand ready to answer all of your detailed questions so that you are empowered to make the most valued environmental control choice for your home or business. Contact Americool LLC.

How To Economically Heat Large Workspaces

31 January 2020

AmeriCool - Portable Rental Heaters

Keeping your workspace temperature constant and evenly distributed isn’t always as easy as it seems. Some parts of workspaces are more subject to outdoor air, drafts, and separation from main heating ducts. Strategic spot heating systems are designed to mitigate such challenges and deliver an all-around comfortable and safe business operating environment.

Here are five tips you can follow to economically and effectively manage climate control within your workplace:

  1. Determine the goal for augmented heating service. When steady and consistent air temperature is important to your business operation, rental spot heating solutions are commonly employed. Each circumstance is distinct and requires a specific spot heating solution to regulate heat across the entire workspace. Understanding your specific climate control objective will help us deliver exactly upon that need.
  2. Calculate the cubic feet of the area. It's important to figure out how much area that requires heating as it is part of the equation in finding out the required BTU. We’ll help you do this.
  3. Check for heat loss. Hot air rises so it's imperative to incorporate ceiling height into your overall calculation. Again, you don’t have to do this. We’ll do it for you.
  4. Select The Right Power/Fuel Source. Rental Portable Electric heaters are efficient and safe to use provided that you have electricity to run it. In situations where electricity is not adequate or accessible, our rental power solutions are there to fill the gap.
  5. Be informed about the installation procedure. It's important that you understand how the heating strategy is being implemented and what activities within the workspace effect the overall heating plan. We can advise workplace behavioral best practices to ensure the most comfortable and cost effective heat management plan is constantly executed.

Who Chose Portable Electric Heaters Over Propane?

21 January 2020

Americool LLC - Portable Heaters

When it comes to implementing supplemental heat within your home or business, you have options. We’re here today to make the case that portable electric heaters are a clear choice over the comparable kerosene and propane. Here are the three most important reasons:

  1. Electric heaters are convenient to use because electricity is normally readily available. You simply need to plug the asset into an existing electrical outlet, and you're all set. Regarding kerosene and propane heaters, they typically require electricity to power their blowers and thermostats. But to the overall quality of convenience, kerosene and propane are far from convenient. The fuels must be sourced and resupplied regularly. Add to this fact that you must continually monitor and resupply the devices themselves, they are far from a convenient solution.
  2. Electric heaters are safe. Since they don't use fossil fuels, there's no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Kerosene and propane heaters must be vented to eliminate this dangerous threat. Also, some governmental agencies disallow the use of heaters with kerosene and propane tanks because of safety concerns.
  3. Electric heaters are adaptable. They can be used to heat a single workstation to an entire work area. Electric heaters come in different heating capacities so they can be customized to efficiently operate in spaces large and small.
