UK: Carrier Rental Systems has invested in a new fleet of 400 high-performance portable air conditioning units to meet anticipated summer demand.

The electronically-controlled ACU 3.5kW units, which replace its previous KY32 cooling units, are now available for immediate hire across the UK and Ireland. The company has also invested in a further hundred units that are available for direct purchase.

“The ACU 3.5kW mobile air conditioner, combines excellent design, robust construction, great performance and quiet operation,” claims Carrier Rental director Marc White. “With its attractive silver livery, it also looks good in most environments, including offices, shops, hotels and restaurants,” he added.

The ACU comes with a discharge hose up to 3m long and extended cable lengths of 2m.

A built-in condensate management system overcomes the need to manually dispose of accumulated condensate. Moisture is evaporated by heat generated by the system’s condenser coil and also ejected as warm/damp air via the extraction duct.

In addition to the standard cooling mode, the unit features a dehumidification setting with the capacity to remove up to 54 litres per day, providing a cool, dry comfortable environment in the workplace or home.
