Air-Cooled vs. Water-Cooled Spot Coolers

Spot coolers are an excellent way to cool a smaller area in a cost-effective manner. These units eliminate the heat removed from an area via air or water-cooled methods. Air-cooled units blow air over the evaporator coils, while water-cooled units run water over this coil.

Water-Cooled Spot Coolers

Water-cooled spot coolers are typically used in high ambient heat locations. Any area where temperatures regularly exceed 115° F requires a water-cooled unit. For temperatures exceeding 100° F (but below 115° F), we still recommend considering water-cooled units as they will provide colder air in high heat areas and run more efficiently.

As the name suggests, the use of water-cooled spot coolers requires a source of water such as a sink or hose bib as well as a drain. We provide hose kits with the units to connect them to a water source, making for a fast and easy installation.

Air-Cooled Spot Coolers

Air-cooled spot coolers are more portable because they do not need to be connected to a water source. Furthermore, these units are useful for areas where water is a liability, such as server rooms or data centers. Air-cooled units are also easier and quicker to set-up, though they are slightly less efficient than their water-cooled counterparts.
