In our latest video we walk you through the different parts of a spot cooler and explain how it works to keep you cool!
This video takes a closer look at the Airrex HSC-60 5 ton spot cooler. After a unit comes back from a rental, we take apart the unit to clean it inside and out. This ensures that the next customer will not have any issues with previous dirt, dust, or debris.
Control Panel: The spot cooler is a self-contained unit that is controlled from a control panel. Once the electrician installs the unit, nothing inside the unit will be touched or damaged. The control panel includes an on/off switch, a compressor, a fan, and room temperature controls that are easy to use.
Back of the Unit: As we open up the back of the spot cooler, you will notice that it is a 3-phase unit. There’s a number of other important parts, like the main breaker, a fire alarm, and a blower wheel (for internal room air). There is a coil, and as heat gets absorbed condensation will come off the coil and collect in the condensate pan. The condensation pump then gets rid of what’s left in the condensate pan.
Front of the Unit: The front of the unit includes an evaporator, two full air exhausts that pull air from the evaporator, and an evaporator fan. You can point the spot cooler in any direction.
Condensing Side: This side includes an exhaust that pulls out the hot air as the condensing side rejects heat. The ductwork is where the air gets released, and spot coolers are commonly ducted into a drop ceiling. This side also includes a compressor and condenser coil.
Condensation Pump: If you have a floor drain, you would put the hose in on a quick release and run it to your floor drain or outside. You can also put another pump on it if it’s a far run to get it out of the site. Anything that needs to be collected will get pumped out using this tool.
Now that you know how these spot coolers work, find out everything you need to know before renting AC.
