Most people like the sun and are much happier in the summer when the sun comes out and the temperatures rises. However for some rising temperatures bring misery and hardship. The physiological effects of heat on the thermoregulatory system of the human body are well documented, heat directly causes dehydration, cardiovascular illness, endocrine diseases and kidney dysfunction and while respiratory effects are less well understood they are still strongly associated with high temperatures. These are serious effect for everyone however far more serious for the elderly, infirm or physically ill. Modern building with large expanse of glass are notorious for overheating and even with air conditioning many suffer from localised “hot spots”. Hospitals are both the type of buildings that suffer from such overheating problems and they are by their very nature full of vulnerable people and hardworking staff that suffer during times of elevated ambient temperatures.
Portable Air Conditioners (PACs) are a great way to provide localised cooling during hot weather. PACs come in many different sizes and configurations allow localised cooling to be delivered in even the most demanding site circumstances. At ICS Cool Energy we stock vented and split units. Vented unit provide cooling from a single unit located inside the area being cooled and rejects waste heat through a ducting similar to a domestic tumble dryer that can be directed outside through a window or purpose installed grill. Split units consisting of an internal cooling unit and an external heat reject unit joined by “umbilical” lines of varying lengths. Our services starts with a free survey to help our customers select the best equipment for their needs and continues with delivery and installation if required and we provide ongoing support throughout the hire period to ensure equipment remains functional.
