A: The side compartment is the manual fill feature of the Portacool Cyclone 130. There is a reservoir located at the bottom that can be filled manually through this compartment or a hose can be connected for a continuous water source.
A: We do not recommend shutting the garage doors. Our evaporative coolers are designed to work where traditional air conditioning is not the best solution. Our coolers need access to fresh air to work properly. In some instances, running an evaporative cooler in a closed environment could make the room or building warmer by increasing the humidity level. If you have the doors and windows of your garage closed, your experience would not be ideal, especially in the Texas heat.
A: The unit creates airflow a significant distance from the unit for an area in which it is aimed. Obviously the further one is from the ac, the less cool the air is. The louvers on the front of the unit are adjustable.
A: The Portacool Cyclone 130 cools approximately 700 square feet. If you build a small platform for the product you are looking at, those directly in front of the product will recieve the most cooling and those on the other side might feel a slight breeze. Keep in mind, evaporative coolers work best as “spot coolers.” While the entire area will receive a temperature reduction, the individual or animal directly in front of the product will experience the most cooling. If you have futher questions about your porch layout and the use of a Portacool Cyclone pelase contact us at 936-598-5651 and speak with someone in Customer Service.
