Any business can benefit from portable air conditioning units, whether the need is additional cooling, or as cooling solutions when system are down or under repair. For other businesses, summer increased the need for portable air conditioning units as temperatures heat up and outdoor activities increase. For those businesses, the region’s heat, humidity, and abundance of insects may mean the addition of portable air conditioning or spot coolers to keep customers happy and the revenue flowing. Let’s take a look a business that benefit from portable air conditioning capabilities in the hottest months.
Could Your Business Benefit from Portable Spot Coolers?
Spot coolers are portable air conditioners with the mobility to be placed anywhere in your business to lower temperatures, decrease humidity, and even keep bugs at bay! Spot coolers are the ideal solution for outdoor dining patios, streateries, and parklets as well as entertainment venues. Restaurants and bars, farmer’s markets and roadside stands, drive-in theaters (making a comeback in the age of COVID) and festivals, and concert and sporting venues can all benefit from the addition of portable air conditioning to keep employees, customers, and patrons cool and comfortable. Happy customers mean increased revenue during the hottest months of the year!
Of course, while comfort is a big reason to consider spot coolers for your business, another benefit is that with portable air conditioning in place you can also cater to those with medical conditions (severe allergies, asthma, and other chronic breathing issues) which don’t allow them to be out in the heat and humidity. With spot coolers, they can enjoy the outdoor activities your business offers, which will undoubtedly keep them coming back for more!
With the addition of portable air conditioning in your business, you will also keep your employees cool and comfortable, whether they are working inside in the kitchen, factory, or server room, or outside taking care of your customers. Inside, server rooms, kitchens, and assembly lines can get hot fast, and a spot cooler can not only keep your employees operating a peak performance levels but also protect your electronics and equipment from breaking down.
How to Select the Right Portable Air Conditioning Unit or Spot Cooler for Your Business
Portable air conditioning units, including spot coolers come in a wide range of sizes from which you can choose. Here’s what you need to know when making your choice.
Indoors or Outside?
Your location makes a difference in your cooling needs as outdoor locations are more challenging when it comes to controlling temperatures. For outdoor areas, you’ll need to factor in more cooling capacity than you would for an indoor location.
The Size of Your Space
You’ll need to know the square footage of the space you need to cool as well as the number of people you expect in the location to calculate your cooling needs. Keep in mind, as the number of people in the space increases, so do the cooling capacity needs.
The size unit or units you need keep your space cool. For every 100 to 150 square feet of space, you’ll need a capacity of approximately 5,000 BTUs per hour. Portable air conditioners remove both heat and humidity so an appropriately chosen unit will keep everyone cool and comfortable.

When making your selection for portable air conditioning, keep in mind that shady areas mean you can reduce cooling capacity while sun-laden spots require an increase. In a kitchen or other area where equipment or electronics increase additional heat, you’ll need more cooling capacity.
