This is how an air cooler works

In principle, air conditioning systems all work in a similar way: They suck the warm air out of the room and cool it down with the help of a coolant. The cold air then flows back into the room. The heat energy that remains in the device now goes in the following ways:

  • to the outside via mini hose and fan - this is the case with a split device.
  • through a large exhaust hose to the outside - like a monoblock air conditioning system.

There is a third possibility of cooling the air in a room without any exhaust hoses - namely with water or ice. The so-called air coolers guide the warm air past water or ice cubes and thereby cool them down. With these devices you just fill up the tank, plug in the plug and off you go.

Advantages of air conditioning without a hose

  • The air conditioning units without a hose are inexpensive.
  • You can set up mobile air conditioning systems quickly and easily without an exhaust hose: fill up the tank, insert the plug into the socket, select the mode, done.
  • Air coolers are mobile. You can easily transport them from one room to the other - depending on where you need them.
  • The air from an air cooler acts like a fresh breeze. Imagine you are by the sea.
  • Air coolers take up less space than monoblock air conditioners and split air conditioners.

Disadvantages of air coolers

  • Air conditioning units without an exhaust hose have a poorer cooling performance than the units with and usually consume a lot of electricity.
  • Air coolers, like air humidifiers, ensure an increase in humidity. If you live in a new building, that is usually not a problem. In old buildings, on the other hand, you risk damage from moisture or even mold.
  • Air coolers are often relatively noisy, comparable to a fan.

Our conclusion: When are mobile air coolers the right choice?

Would you be better off buying a mobile air conditioner or a monoblock or split air conditioner? We advise you the following: If you live in the house or apartment for a long time, get advice and then install an air conditioner with split technology. Here you invest a little more at the beginning, but later on you save electricity costs. And you can look forward to well-cooled living spaces.

For short-term living situations, you have to make a decision: air cooler without annoying hose or monoblock air conditioning unit? Take a close look at the energy efficiency and consider how much the exhaust hose would bother you. You are more flexible with an air cooler. The air conditioner with exhaust hose offers you a little less space, but more cooling power. Decide on the product that best suits you and your needs.
