Plenty of tents are well ventilated. If the tents have plenty of windows the air can flow freely throughout the unit. This works well if there is a cool breeze blowing, but what if the air is still and humid?
It is easy to create cooler air that will allow the campers to sleep easily. Numerous compact air conditioners keep tents cool for hours, allowing the occupants to enjoy a comfortable night’s sleep.
The compact, portable ac units are fitted with whisper quiet fans that use less power than other more costly portable air conditioning units. The 12 Volt Portable Air Conditioner is not tied down with pads, pumps and hoses. This affordable portable air con unit is ideal for people who camp out in tents. Honestly, though, there are a few problems with this unit. Many people argue that it doesn’t work very well. And it requires you to have a supply of ice to keep it running.
If you enjoy camping, but find it difficult to endure the heat you have two choices. You can use an air conditioning unit or an evaporating cooling system. The majority of air conditioners used by campers remove moist air; these units are popular with those who camp in humid regions.
We’ve seen folks rig up window air conditioner (like the Frigidaire FRA052XT7 5,000-BTU Mini Window Air Conditioner) or portable ac units (like the Frigidaire FRA054XT7 5,000 BTU Window-Mounted Mini Room Air Conditioner) in their tents. This is a terrific way to keep the humidity under control. But you will need a 110 volt outlet to run these models.
Refrigerant models cool the temperature in a tent by thirty to forty degrees. If you want to keep your tent cooler you should follow this guideline. Allow one ton of cooling (12,000 BTU) to every 25 to 150 square feet of space.
Here are other factors you should consider when buying an air conditioner for camping. Think about the position of the tent, the season and the amount of time spent in the tent. For instance, go camping in mid-August on the asphalt ground in between two buildings and you will need to use a couple of cooling units. Camp in a grassy field in May and you may need just one ac unit. Full stand-up tents are likely to need more cooling than shorter tents.
Evaporative cooling systems (like the Luma Comfort EC220W Evaporative Cooler) are another popular option for tent campers. These systems blow out ice- cool mist that disperses as it hits hot skin, this type of ac is ideal for tent campers.
The evaporative cooling units use ice to chill the air and emit more air than a typical air con unit placed at a distance of sixty to eighty feet. These units are energy-efficient, yet they can lower the room temperature by ten to fifteen degrees.
Camping is a great way of connecting with nature and the wide outdoors, but campers are not forced to suffer the heat. The latest air conditioners for camping are efficient and affordable. Invest in an inexpensive portable ac unit to make the world of difference to your camping holiday.
Hike during the daytime and enjoy a refreshing night’s sleep in a cooler and more comfortable tent. A sound night’s sleep will leave you ready for your next adventure.
