What is the difference between refrigerated air conditioning and evaporative cooling?

Refrigerated Air conditioning circulates dehumidified, refrigerated cooled air. It requires closed doors and windows for maximum efficiency and can be used in any application.
Evaporative cooling continually draws fresh air from outside, tries to cools it down and adds water to the air (humidifies). Evaporative cooling makes the conditioned space humid, It also losses effectiveness after extended periods of operation. Evaporative cooling is not reverse cycle. Due to its nature, Aircon Rentals does not use Evaporative Cooling and will only supply Refrigerated Air Conditioning.
99 % of Aircon Rentals refrigerated air conditioning is reverse cycle, that mean it will heat as well as cools. Refrigerated air conditioning will not lose it’s effectiveness when continually run.

 

How is a Portable Air Conditioning unit installed?

Depending on the size of unit that is required, most times the unit is wheeled into position and plugged into a normal power point. The ducting is put through either a window or ceiling space (if false ceilings are installed) and then the unit can be switched on. If it is a more involved installation, a detailed installation poutline would be given.

How do I cool a marquee?

There are a number of ways in which Aircon Rentals could cool (or heat) a marquee. The use of the Hi Wall Spilt unit is easy to deliver and install and all that is seen is the “head” of the air conditioning unit. The other way is via fabric ducting that would run along the internal gable of the marquee, entering the structure on the end panel. One entry point for the ducting is usually all that is required, and the ducting has a choice of colours (white, grey, black) and looks like an inflated circular balloon.
