Tripp Lite's SRCOOL12K is a next-generation air conditioner designed for supplemental area cooling, emergency cooling and off-hour cooling applications. The SRCOOL12K uses environmentally friendly R410a refrigerant, which complies with EPA standards for 2010 and beyond, and is accepted worldwide. It contains zero, ozone depleting R22 refrigerant that has been banned by the EPA for new equipment manufactured after January 1, 2010. The SRCOOL12K has a built-in evaporator that expels the condensed water through the exhaust duct, so there is no need for a drain tube, drain pan or water collection tank. Efficient, compact, self-contained and portable, the 120 Volt, 60 Hz SRCOOL12K is ideal for use in data centers, server and wiring closets, IT environments, home and small business offices, conference rooms, warehouses, entertainment centers or other venues with heat-sensitive equipment, particularly in areas that facility air conditioning can't reach. The SRCOOL12K not only adjusts ambient room temperatures, but can also dehumidify and filter the air, providing better air quality for enhanced equipment performance with minimal noise and power consumption. Designed for quick, simple installation, the SRCOOL12K plugs into a standard 5-15R outlet with no adapter required. Both a standard louvered vent (for general room cooling) and a directional ducted cooling vent (to direct cold air where most needed) are provided.

  • 12,000 BTU of cooling power can cool a 500 sq. ft. room
  • Uses environmentally friendly R410a refrigerant (contains no ozone depleting R22 refrigerant which has been banned by the U.S. EPA in new equipment after January 1, 2010)
  • No water collection tank required, a built-in evaporator expels condensate into the exhaust air stream meaning no drain tube, drain pan or water collection tank that needs to be emptied every few hours
  • Cold air output can be precisely directed through a 71 in. flexible tube to the 'hot spot' for better, faster cooling (Standard louvered insert is also included for general room cooling)
  • Auto-restart feature retains all system settings and returns the unit back to its last operational state after AC power is restored
  • Compact, portable, self-contained design; ideal for IT, industrial, commercial and similar applications

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very simple, cools well. The unit was simple to install. Using it in an IT room and no way to drain, but his unit does not need a drain. Vented through the drop ceiling. Good unit. January 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by so far so good so far so good. Easy too instal. Too soon to evaluate March 10, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Defective Unit Probably worked less than a week before it quit! Now it only makes a burning electrical smell while blowing room temperature air. This is the second one of these that I have purchased. I hope the first one doesn't go out this quickly because it is only maybe a month and a half newer. Now to go through the hassle of getting it replaced! December 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great portable air conditioner Basically no real set up, just attach a couple hoses and plug in and turn it on. It is doing just what we wanted and expected. I have never had a portable a/c before, so far so good. Also, haven't gotten my first electricity bill yet, so i am hopeful it doesn't cost a lot to run it. I would definitely recommend this unit to potential buyers. October 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product, This air conditioner was purchased to cool the computer server room at our company. It is small and compact, it fits very well in the room and does a great job of cooling the whole area. May 7, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unreliable Worked for about 30 hours of non-continuous use, then the reservoir filled, which it is not supposed to do in cooling mode. Draining is extremely difficult, since the outlet is about 2 cm from the floor. Tech support was friendly, but finally determined the compressor was the problem so the entire unit has to be replaced. Cost me a lot of time and trouble. July 16, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by does what it says it is going to do !! Nice A/C works well. been running it nonstop for days and have not needed to drain at all I really like this A/C very much!! I would recommend buying it :-) July 26, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by It's good, but pricey Can get an equal cooling unit for 1/2 the price. I have it cooling a 250 sq foot open room, and it works, but not ice cold. We cannot get the room temp down below 70. We are in San diego where it isn't that hot, maybe 80's outside. We have perishable sauces and produce in this room, so we need something high powered. This is not is. I am sure it would work great in a home, where all windows and door August 21, 2013
