Sizing a Spot Cooler

Choosing the right size spot cooler is essential. The easiest way to size a spot cooler is to speak with a cooling expert at Mobile Air, but we've provided some guidelines below so that you may get a rough idea of spot cooler sizing.

A 10,000 BTU to 14,000 BTU spot cooler is generally sufficient to provide adequate spot cooling to one or two persons. In extremely high ambient temperature conditions (above 105°F) a 24,000 BTU unit would normally be used to provide cooling to one or two individuals. Of course, the intended application will affect the amount of cooling capacity required.

Common Spot Cooler Applications

  • Computer Equipment
  • Bleachers/Grandstands at Special Events
  • Large Equipment Rooms
  • Products on Conveyor Belts
  • Nursing Stations
