Fundamental differences of the ac and portable ac on operational principle

Portable air conditioner is a mobile ac with free installation but with the same cold wind and cool wind as the air conditioner does.

Are there any differences in the design principles of the ac and portable ac? We would have to look at it in detail on the two products design principles.

What is a portable air conditioner?

Portable air conditioner is a breaking idea in the traditional air conditioner technology design concept, with a small and light body but has extremely high energy efficiency, without having to install, but can be positioned at any corner inside the house. From the external, we can see that there is few difference from the household cleaners neither in model nor volume.Portable air conditioner is a stylish, light-weighted, smart, personalized and charming idea in the modern summer day.

Its function is to adjust the room’s (or enclosed space, area), air temperature, humidity, cleanliness and air flow rate and other parameters so that to meet human comfort or process requirements.

An air conditioner can be divided into two functions of single cold air conditioning and heating and air conditioning,but dual working principle is the same. The general use of air conditioner is refrigerant Freon. Freon has the characteristic: when the gas to liquid, releasing a lot of heat. The transition from liquid to gaseous state, it will absorb a lot of heat. Based on this principle,so an air conditioner is designed.

The compressor compresses a gaseous refrigerant of high temperature and high pressure liquid refrigerant, and then fed to the condenser (outdoor unit) after cooling at room temperature to become a high pressure liquid refrigerant, the outdoor unit so that blown out hot air.

Opinions differ on the ac and portable ac by consumers

First, the difference of principle

1, from the technical point of view, the power consumption and cooling capacity between an air conditioner and a portable air conditioner is substantially the same. The difference is that air circulation design, ordinary air conditioner air flow circulation is for indoor air circulation.However, the portable air conditioner is to reduce indoor air temperature, while also sucked into the fresh air outdoor, hot and cold air-conditioning compressor is essentially through outdoor and indoor refrigeration heat exchange separately, but portable air conditioner finishes this work by indoor units only.

Consumers in the purcha processe should be aware that the biggest feature of the portable air conditioner is superior in cooling the partial area,insetad of the whole place.

Second, different noise performance

Because portable air conditioner as a integrated unit, noise that it produces is relatively louder than that the conventional air conditioner does.

Portable air conditioner superiority Secret:

1, the cooling effect of the partial area faster than the ordinary air conditioner does, for example: to prevent computers, instruments and other equipment from being overheating, can be directly transferred to the front of the air blowing straight state, to achieve the cooling effect.

2, no need to consider the placement of the outdoor unit, as easy as the fan that use immediately by plugging in power. For example: the overtime group in business offices just use the hot exhaust pipe routed away, then they can immediately have a cool space.
