an amazing portable evaporative cooling system, cooler, outdoor air-conditioner that cools
thousands of sq.ft. at a fraction of the cost of standard air conditioning is less than a
dollar per day. Port-A-Cool portable evaporative cooling, not a swamp cooler, but a spot
cooler that will cool large areas for only pennies per day! Port A Cool uses portable
temporary evap evaporative cooling to spot cool and make areas cooler for thousands of
sq.ft. in a factory, warehouse, football sidelines, sports events, tents and restaurant
kitchens and outdoor seating areas. Outdoor air-conditioning, not a swamp cooler, but
evaporative cooling when cooling fans are not efficient for cooling, spot cooling or
for cooler air instead of fans simply blowing hot air.
Calculating PORTACOOL's 8 Hour Operational Cost
When we say, "PORTACOOL® units cool the temperature
20° or more all day long for only $1.00 or less per day (about 1/10th the
cost of standard air-conditioning)," we really mean it! Based on a
survey of 22 cities and towns across the United States and hundreds of our
customers telling us the hours they most used their PORTACOOL® unit(s),
the average cost per day is only about $1.00 (based on an average 8-hour
Here's how to
obtain the cost to run your PORTACOOL® unit all day:
Call your local power
company and get the price of a kilowatt hour (or check your last
electric company bill).
Example: 0.15739=1 kW hour
Multiply by PORTACOOL
use at .76 kW/hr.
0.15739 X 0.76 = 0.1196
Multiply times 8 hour
day (average use)
0.1196 X 8 hrs. = 0.9568
Call your local water
company for water cost.
Example: 2.57 = 1000 gallons
100 gallons = 0.137
X 10% = 0.0257
At 5 gallons per hour,
multiply for 8 hours.
0.0257 X 40% (40 gallons) = 0.0102
0.9568 + 0.0102 = 0.967 or 97¢
average for cities, towns and rural areas in the United States is
approximately $1.00 per day!
