FAQ :: Portable air cooler
Will the Transcool Portable air cooler cool my vehicle like a built in air conditioner?
Quite simply, a refrigerated air conditioning system is hard to beat, BUT! - a refrigerated air conditioning system has many complex and expensive components. These systems require many permanently fitted parts such as a compressor, condenser and evaporator, and refrigerant gas to cool air. A vehicle or household air conditioner requires immense power to ‘drive’.
If you absolutely need a vehicle with air conditioner then repair or replace yours! If these options are not possible, then Transcool will help provide relief from the heat.
How cold will the Transcool 12 volt air cooler make my cabin or room?
The Transcool is a small evaporative cooling device that is simply designed to blow a cool breeze over the user whilst in front of the unit.
This is great comfort especially when you are in a hot,’ still’ environment!
It will not cool down a ‘room’ as such, this is where a refrigerated unit is required, as previously explained.
Evaporative cooling performance can differ depending on various conditions such as ambient temperature and humidity, but average test results show that Transcool can deliver air temperatures (at the vent) up to 15 degrees (C) cooler than the ambient air temperature! Generally Transcool can provide an average air outlet temperature reduction up to 30-40%.
But regardless of any specs on paper, the reality, as I have said previously, is that any moving air, especially air that is cooler than ambient, - Feels like HEAVEN!!
The following are brief examples of the differences between air conditioner and evaporative cooling:
- For maximum efficiency, you must allow proper ventilation when using an evaporative cooler and allow fresh air to the unit, where as you may re-circulate air cooled by an air conditioner in an enclosed environment. An air conditioner operating in an enclosed environment, can lead to air becoming ‘stale’.
- You must dispose of excess water accumulated by an air conditioner. There is no excess water accumulated by an evaporative cooler. Condensation with use of Transcool is also not an issue
- Refrigerated air conditioning is much more expensive!
