Portable Air Conditioning Ducting Basics

Let’s talk about ducts.

 

Here at Computer Room Uptime we know our way around ducts. They are an essential part of spot cooling. We use them to remove warm air exhaust and to direct cool air, otherwise known as spot cooling to areas of need. Determining which ducts will help maximize the efficiency of our portable air conditioners is a decision we take seriously. Every situation is different, so our professionals listen to exactly what your unique situation needs and will design a cooling remedy to exceed your expectations.  Computer Room Uptime uses duct-work for both permanent spot cooler installation as well as short term air conditioning rentals.

Ducts come in many different shapes and sizes. They can be comprised of metal, plastic or even fabric. Some are rigid, some flexible.  Most importantly they provide enough versatility to accommodate even the most difficult applications.  This blog post contains a photo of a recent portable air conditioning rental we completed in Colorado Springs. We received a call from a school that needed to cool off a large conference room.  They had an important week-long conference, and their large rooftop air conditioner failed.  They needed portable air conditioning fast.  We typically ask if the room that needs to be cooled has a drop ceiling.  A drop ceiling provides a great place to duct exhaust air allowing the building’s air handling system to remove it. In this case there was not a drop ceiling that we could use so we went on to explore other options.  Upon further questioning we were informed there were not any windows that opened or attached rooms that we could duct into.  As you can see we still were able to accommodate this situation by using long 16” diameter flexible ducts to remove the warm air out one of the side doors in the conference room.  We installed two MovinCool Office Pro 36 units inside the conference hall, which kept the 60 people comfortable during the day.  The MovinCool portable air conditioners are quiet enough to be placed inside the conference room and not disturb the attendees.  The two exhaust ducts were routed outside, and the rest of the doorway was masked off with plastic to keep the heat out.

Other portable air conditioning rentals need to have the cold air ducted to a specific area that needs to be cooled.  I am attaching a picture showing an industrial application where the cold air is ducted to cool down machinery so it doesn’t overheat, as well as the people operating it.  MovinCool spot coolers are designed to handle long duct runs; their internal fans are capable of moving lots air with high amounts of static pressure.
