Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Jun2010, Vol. 82 Issue 6, p10
The article focuses on the applications of portable cooling equipment for summer season. It states that air-cooled portable air conditioner, one of the three main types of portable equipment, discharge hot air through ductwork. It says that portable units offer flexibility to tenants who rent space and could facilitate work processes of construction crews by controlling temperature and humidity, which allows fast drying of spackle and better acclimation of wood flooring and paneling.
