Portable Cooling Units for Your Home or Office
As much as we love blue skies and sunshine, most homes in the UK are not prepared to deal with big heat waves and 30°C temperatures. You’ll stay cool as a cucumber in your home or office with our quiet and convenient cooling options. Our portable coolers are compact and efficient with a wide range of options available including air conditioners, pedestal fans, and air coolers, all at affordable prices.
Our electric pedestal and tower fans are a popular option for keeping cool during those hot periods of the year. With a range of features available including oscillation, remote control operation, variable speeds, and a timer, you can programme the perfect cooling set up for your needs.
How do portable air conditioners work?
Portable air conditioners combine a fan, compressor and cooling coil into a single unit supported on castors. As they expel hot air through a flexible hose, they must be positioned within reach of a vent point. Window kits are usually supplied for this but sliding doors, wall vents and chimneys can also be used.
What size portable air conditioner do I need?
As a general guide, 5000 BTU is sufficient power for a small room 80 to 100 square feet in area, 8000 BTU for rooms up to 150 square feet, and 12000 BTU for rooms up to about 280 square feet. However, a conditioner’s effectiveness also depends on ceiling height, the heat sources and room insulation.
Looking for a more sophisticated device with multiple functions? Our small and portable air con range includes 5000 BTU, 8000 BTU, 9000 BTU, and 12000BTU units to suit a range of room sizes. These superb devices deliver effective cooling and dehumidifying action for your space, all whilst running at a quiet noise level. Our air coolers have three benefits rolled into one – cooler, humidifier, and fan – to not only maintain a comfortable room temperature but also purify and put moisture in the air, ideal for allergy sufferers.
