In many countries, air conditioners are in apartments, houses, office buildings, and RVs. The costs and the environmental factor deter many from making a purchase.
Portable air conditioning
The portable air conditioning system with an exhaust air hose is a system for short-term use. The designation indicates that the device works on its own and no additional equipment is required. The portable air conditioner is small and convenient. This type of air conditioning system comes in portable versions. The acquisition costs are cheap and there are no installation costs for the mobile device. However, you should take note that this version has a high power consumption. In addition, you need to lay the exhaust air hose attached to the system outside through a window or an opening.
Air conditioning systems from the point of view of environmental pollution
Conventional split systems damage the climate in two ways. A large part falls back on the high power consumption, the rest on the climate-damaging refrigerant. Sophisticated technology and regular maintenance can improve the power consumption of air conditioning systems.
Portable air conditioning systems are less prone to leaks and the filling quantities are smaller. However, the cooling effect is less if the exhaust air hose is routed through a window instead of through a wall opening. Nevertheless, they performed better in tests than in classic air conditioning systems. You can use them when needed. They are generally less harmful to the environment.
Research in the field of air conditioning is very active. Research is being conducted into solutions that do not require electricity or chemicals; only on the basis of thermoacoustics.
Are portable air conditioners environmentally friendly?
Especially in the private sector, portable air conditioners are cheaper. They are more environmentally friendly alternative on hot summer days. It is ideally suited for short-term and time-limited use. You can use the machine quickly and cooling can begin immediately.
Investing in a split device with a permanently installed outlet has proven its worth over the long term because the exhaust air hose is not just led out through an open window or door. Hot air cannot flow inside and the cooling result is better.
