Question about DeLonghi CF210 Portable Air Conditioner

Need AC for Server Room

My company's server room does not have a window (or outside wall). I've been looking at the portable units but they all seem to need close access to a window. Can you recommend a solution. For example, are there longer hoses available for intake and exhaust? If so, do they negatively impact how well the unit cools?

Thanks!

I find it amazing that in this day and age IT manager will still scrimp on there server room environmental systems! It must not be that critical! Anyways you'll be better off with a split type unit correctly sized for your server room. Toshiba now have small units that can pump up to 50 meters away if needed. the key is to have it correctly sized!

My home base portable air condition blow cold air for short period I have put the temperature 16° if it blow cold air small then it will cut off and blow warm air and the room temperature is always at 30°...

Why does my portable air conditioner cool for a short period of time and then turn off?
Have you extended the exhaust hose with another? The unit can ONLY be used with the included exhaust hose (dryer type exhaust hoses will cause the unit to over heat).

How close is the unit to the wall? If the unit is only inches away from the wall and you are running the exhaust hose out a window, more than likely their exhaust hose bend is at 90 degrees which restricts air flow. In order for the unit to run more efficiently and not overheat, it should be at least 1-1/2 feet away from the wall and the exhaust hose should not exceed more then a 45 degree angle.
Are you exhausting the unit out a hole in the wall? If so, are you using a flap vent on the exterior of your home/office? The flap may be too rigid and not open continuously. The compressor is not strong enough to push the air through and therefore will only run for a short period of time before overheating and shutting off. You should take the flap off the vent and replace it with a piece of screening.

Are you venting it into a ceiling or basement? Does the ceiling or basement have ample ventilation? If the ceiling or basement does not have a way of pushing the heat from the exhaust to the outside, the unit will work for a short period of time and then eventually overheat and shut off.

My DeLonghi PAC A110L portable air conditioner is leaking water. How do I fix this?


Hallo

If an Air Conditioner is on cooling then the Air Conditioner also removes humidity from the air any Split Unit, Window Wall A/C you name it... Any A/C on cooling dehumidify the air in the room.

To decrease the volume of the water:
1) Clean Air filter/s
2) Keep doors and windows close( can open now and again).

I don't know how that portable A/C of your look like but I believe theirs a water pan inside that needs cleaning I think it's full.( best is to service the hole A/C).

Hope this was useful.

Regards

Why is my appartment getting cooler ???


An air conditioner really just moves heat from one place to another. Normally there is an inside unit and an outside unit, or in the case of a window unit, half is inside the room and half outside the window. In either case, it takes the heat from in the room and moves it outside. This portable unit apparently takes the heat from one room and dumps it into another. There is no magic heat elimination - it has to go somewhere.

We do not have a window in the room this need to be installed in. Does the window installation kit allow us to install the pipe that goes outside through our exterior wall of the house? Like a dryer vent...


I think you probably could. As most manufacturers of portable AC units allow for this. It's what called a semi -permanent installation . The dryer duct idea will work if the shaft part of the dryer duct is the same diameter as the window mount duct and the shaft of the dryer duct is long enough to go thru the wall and leave enough for the AC Exhaust Duct to hook to. Be sure that the flap door of the dryer duct moves freely and will not get stuck in the closed position. That could be a big problem if it does.
Keep in mind, you will not be able to add any length the AC duct hose. It must remain the same.

Hope this helped answer your question and things for choosing FixYa.

Where can I get a manual for my Emerson Quiet Cool Room Air Conditioner? Not sure the model, but these #s were on outside of box: 10DC93 784040B OE21M N14421, is on a little sticker on the right...


Let see if I can help. The numbers don't come up so we'll just try your information.

Exhaust - should be closed when using for Air Conditioning
Energy savings turns the fan off with the compressor when set for Air Conditioning
Fan Only means just that (no Air Conditioning)

Fan speeds Quite same as low, Norm same as medium, Super same as High
Temp settings, what the thermostat senses before cycling compressor.

I want to buy portable air conditioner, but the buyer said that i need put the exhaust tube near a window open to expel hot air, in my room not have windows


You do have to use the exhaust tube, would need to put a hole in your wall. Also, these units really generate a lot of heat. We tried one, it almost seems as if it actually makes the room hotter! You would be better off buying a small regular unit, constructing a hole in the wall to the outside.
If you absolutely cannot do the hole, you could get an extension to the exhaust tubing and maybe use a window in another room?

Can I mount a window unit with no outside access


You could/can, but don't forget that (a) there is a good chance of heavy condesation, so size pan appropriately, or drain...and (b) The enclosed space where the drip pan is, is going to get quite warm. Hope this helps

Air exhaust hose gets extremely warm


The Pinguino's exhaust pipe has to be attached to the window bracket to direct the air hot air out of the room, otherwise the room can't cool properly.
The owner's manual has several troubleshooting remedies for you to try:
1)  If the window is open, close the window. 2)  If there is a heat source in the room (burner, lamp, etc.), eliminate the heat source. 3)  If the exhaust hose is detached, connect the exhaust hose.  (My recommendation is to connect the exhaust hose to the window bracket and direct the air outside.) 4)  If the air filters are clogged, clean or replace the filters.
Remedies that aren't mentioned in the manual, but you might find helpful:
1)  Make sure that there are no kinks in the hose, and that the hose either remains straight or has a gentle curve when directing it into the window bracket.
2)  A sunny window reduces the maximum power and efficiency of the unit.  Placing it in a sunny window reduces your BTUs by at least 600, which means the maximum square footage of cooled space is reduced.  Cooling a kitchen requires at least 4,000 BTUs alone, which is nearly half of the unit's BTUs.  Try to place the unit by a window that receives minimum to no direct sunlight.
Finally, stating the obvious, if the room isn't cooling, the room is too large for the unit.  The PACL90 cools up to 400sqft.  Bear in mind that the air from these portable air conditioners cannot move around corners very well, so try to set it by a window in the central part of the room.
