Q: What is MovinCool?
A: MovinCool is a self-contained, "air cooled" air conditioner on wheels.
Q: What is an "air cooled" air conditioner?
A: Air cooled refers to a compressor-based refrigerant system that uses air to exchange heat, similar to a car or typical household air conditioner. With this type of system the air is dehumidified as it is cooled.
Q: How does it work?
A: Roll it into position, plug it in, and turn it on. NOTE: If you are in an enclosed room, you will need to exhaust the warm air from the top of the unit out of the room. The drop ceiling space in a typical office will usually satisfy this requirement.
Q: Can you always duct the exhaust air into the drop ceiling?
A: No. You may need to remove MovinCool's exhaust air in some other manner. Contact us or your local dealer for more information.
Q: How many square feet does it cool?
A: As a rule of thumb, 400 square feet per 12,000 BTUs (12,000 BTUs equals one ton of air conditioning). However, you must account for other factors which will affect the total heat load. Contact us or your local dealer for more information.
Q: How much temperature drop do you get?
A: An average of 15° to 25° F, from ambient temperature, depending on model and level of humidity, e.g. low humidity = high temperature drop, high humidity = low temperature drop.

A: We have seven sizes available:

Q: Do they come with a condensation pump?

A: With MovinCool compressors, three design types are utilized: scroll, rotary and reciprocal. (See Specifications)
Q: Is there a warranty on MovinCool units?
A: When you purchase a new MovinCool unit, there is a one year warranty on the entire unit, and three years on the compressor (parts and labor). An additional one year warranty is available at no extra charge. See the warranty page for details.
