All Port-A-Cool units are designed to offer a practical cooling solution for areas where traditional air conditioning is impractical, unavailable or cost prohibitive. The system works by pulling hot, ambient air through water-soaked evaporative cooling media in the back of the unit where the evaporation process creates cool air that is dispersed by a fan located in the front of the unit. According to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE), given typical seasonal temperatures and average humidity across the nation, Port-A-Cool units can lower the temperature of the air an average of 18°.
The one-piece rotomolded housing for the unit encloses the coated caddy, making the unit sturdy and resistant to rust. Each unit is shipped completely assembled and ready to operate right out of the box. A molded-in switch box and recessed valve pockets help assure better protection for valve handles and internal wiring. The wiring system incorporates a quick connect electrical connector that provides for easy replacement of any electrical component without rewiring. The units are built with the end-user in mind and the product is backed by a guaranteed warranty. Port-A-Cool units are listed by ETL and soon to be listed with Underwriters Laboratory.
