Many garages use a simple portable AC system because these units are small, portable and energy efficient. There are various conditions that certain models will be able to work under, depending on the type of work you do in your garage.
The compact size of a portable AC makes it useful for smaller spaces such as an office that is already equipped with central heating and air conditioning. It is quite common to find these units in warehouses and automotive shops.
We like the Tripp Lite SRCOOL12K Portable Cooling / Air Conditioner Stand Alone Spot Air Cooler 120V, 60Hz, 12K BTU for garage and warehouse use.
These air conditioners are available in units ranging from 6000 BTU up to 16,000 BTU and can easily keep a space of 400 square feet cool and comfortable, depending on the mode of operation you select. Therefore, many business owners find these units much more affordable than other more expensive and power gulping systems.
Some units come with timers which make it easy to run the air conditioner unit for a specific time period. This certainly makes sense for many smaller businesses, especially those on a limited budget, because it offers the savings of energy efficiency. Portable air conditioners can be controlled, allowing them to only run during the hours you need. These units are also easily moved from one location to another.
Aside from being portable, these units are extremely easy to use. An easy to use AC will significantly reduce wasted time by employees trying to figure out how to adjust the cooling temperature.
Simply set the unit for the temperature you want and you’re done. This allows you the ability to set your desired temperature and your work area will remain comfortable.
Portable air conditioners are versatile and energy efficient, helping businesses save money on their bottom line. These units are generally very affordable, so are often in the budget of business trying to save money.
