Is this unit quiet?

Asked by Me April 18, 2021

According to reviews this unit is quiet but the process of which one determines what is quiet in their mind is up to the individual. This is quieter than other units.

Does it have to be vented

Used to replace a through-the-wall type air conditioner, my new Tripp-Lite is far more quiet, more effective in cooling the area than the 15,000 BTU unit that it replaced, And, it provides control and air direction options that give user choices that are very helpful. I am using the unit in a domestic environment where it has proven to be far superior in every way to other portable units that I have previously bought. I consider it entirly suitable for domestic use. Having been successful in keeping us cool through a long patch of record setting hot weather, it has proved highly efficient and effective. I have already recommended it to others and I may buy additional units for myself.

Great Server Room Cooling!
I have used a SRCOOL12K unit in my server room for the past 5 years. I just bought a new one and WOW! I really liked my 5 year old unit but really love the new version! Quit, efficient, easy to operate! I don't mean to geek out about it but I have over $150K worth of equipment in the room so this unit serves a very important purpose.

Best Self-Contained Air Conditioning Unit Ever!
You gotta love Tripp Lite! It is hot now in California... Who would have thought? I worked for Tripp Lite for many years, was so excited when we got this product because every single customer I brought this to wanted to keep this, they tried it out, bought them for every single MDF and IDF locations they could... and then they ended up buying more. Now I am recommending this product for people in condominium type complexes where the the association won't allow interior/exterior a/c units. This is fully self contained, comes on rollers... what the heck else could you ask for?

Great unit but does not last.
I'm not typically in the habit of writing reviews, but as I've now gone through two of these units in under 3 years I felt compelled to share the experience. Purchased the first unit in 2014 through Provantage. Good price, great unit, worked wonderfully to keep our small server room cool (room is less than 50 s.f.). About 15 months later the compressor failed. Provantage says "sorry", contact manufacturer. Tripp Lite says "sorry, we don't fix them. Find a local HVAC repairman." Well I obtained a full refund through my business Visa card company, which extends warranties up to another full year. Thinking I must have just struck a bad unit, and having the refund, I purchased the same unit again from Provantage in July 2016. Well yesterday this one failed same as the first. Out of warranty of course. No recourse with vendor or manufacturer. The kicker is that we've not overworked the unit, it's a small room, the hose is properly vented out of the room, the temp is set to 78 so it's not running 24/7... yet it doesn't last event 18 months. Lesson learned, will seek a different brand, spend a bit more and hopefully get something with more endurance. MIB - IT Director - Municipality in NE Illinois.

We're sorry this is happening. Our Tech Support Team is reaching out. This is not acceptable to us. We hope to resolve this as quickly as possible.
A Great Small Server Room Climate Control Solution
This product does an excellent job of keeping our modest sized sever equipment running cool at all times. Easy to installation and very versatile controls allowed for just the right settings to keep our sever room cool.

Best Portable Server Rack Cooling Unit
This is my second unit and old unit worked for 4 years straight no issue. Recommending it for all Rack Cooling needs and customer support is very helpful.

Great for server room UPS
We have a large UPS that was overheating our server room despite the large split HVAC that was sized for the room. We were able to eliminate the heat issue by giving the UPS its own cooling unit, blowing cold air directly into it. Venting the heat through the dropped ceiling helped considerably. We also purchased the remote monitor.

Tiny but powerfull
I have the SRCOOL12K next to my Server rack to add supplement cooling power to the server room. It was a breeze to install and get positioned into place to provide the maximum chill to the room, keeps the room a crisp 60 at all times, even in this horrible Florida heat.
