Spot coolers are portable air conditioning units designed to provide temporary or supplemental cooling in commercial and industrial settings.


During high heat summer months,these commercial spot coolers are versatile and can be used in various applications where cooling is required in particular where installing a permanent HVAC system is not feasible or cost-effective. Being equipped with a portable commercial spot cooler can provide exceptional air control in critical situations.

Here are some key aspects of spot coolers in commercial and industrial applications:

1. Commercial Portable Design:

Commercial Spot coolers are compact and portable, allowing them to be easily moved to the desired location within a facility. This flexibility is useful for cooling specific areas as needed.

2. Temporary Cooling:

They are often used for temporary or emergency cooling solutions. For example, when the primary HVAC system fails or during maintenance or construction work that disrupts regular cooling.

3. Industrial Use:

Spot coolers are commonly used in industrial settings, such as manufacturing plants, warehouses, data centers, and server rooms, to maintain a controlled temperature and prevent equipment overheating.

4. Commercial Use:

In commercial applications, they can be employed in retail stores, offices, restaurants, or event spaces to create a comfortable environment for customers, employees, or event attendees.

5. Cooling Capacity:

Spot coolers come in various sizes and cooling capacities typically ranging from 4.9KW-7.3Kw,small units that can cool a single room up to 50m2 to medium size units capable of cooling upto 80m2 ie several rooms, 12Kw-22KW are used for larger areas  100m2 or more ,such as marquees, warehouses and telecommunications centres etc. The cooling capacity is typically measured in Kw or BTUs (British Thermal Units) per hour. ie 7.3kW=25,000BTU

6. Ventilation:

CB5500R filter fit exploded veiwSpot coolers usually include a flexible duct or hose for exhaust, which should be directed to an appropriate location to remove hot air. Some models.

Can also provide some dehumidification, when removing moisture from the air.


7. Energy Efficiency:

Modern spot coolers are designed to be energy-efficient, helping to keep operating costs lower. Look for units with energy-saving features such as programmable thermostats and variable speed fans.

8. Noise Levels:

Consider the noise level of the spot cooler, especially in applications where quiet operation is essential, such as in offices or quiet retail spaces.
Typically a CB7300 runs at 68dB noise level, a newer model CB5500R reverse cycle cooler heater runs at a lower 60dB

9. Maintenance:

Regular maintenance is essential to ensure the efficient operation of spot coolers. This may include cleaning filters, condenser coils, and checking for any refrigerant leaks.

10. Safety:

Ensure that spot coolers are installed and operated safely, following all relevant safety guidelines and regulations. This includes proper electrical connections and ventilation.

11. Cost Considerations:

While spot coolers are a cost-effective solution for temporary cooling, it’s essential to consider the overall cost, including rental fees, electricity consumption, and maintenance.

12. Temperature Control:

Most spot coolers come with adjustable thermostats, allowing you to set the desired temperature. Some models may also have remote controls for convenience. Spot coolers can be a valuable tool in maintaining comfortable and safe environments in commercial and industrial settings when traditional HVAC systems are not sufficient or practical.

When choosing a spot cooler, it’s crucial to assess the specific cooling requirements and select the appropriate unit for the task.
