While many traditional air conditioners remove moisture from the air, effectively doubling as a dehumidifier, evaporative coolers or ‘swamp’ coolers do precisely the opposite. By evaporating water, these innovative products are perfect for dry and hot environments. When the air lacks enough moisture, you may suffer not only from dry skin, dry eyes, and an irritated throat, but you may even suffer from increased susceptibility to infection. However, with an evaporative cooler such as the Portacool PACCYC02 at work, you needn’t worry. Further, because of its robust build and impressive output, the Portacool PACCY02 is also capable of functioning as an effective commercial air conditioner, in environments such as factories, warehouses, and garages. On top of this, as this unit is an evaporative cooler, it is also capable of working as an effective outdoor air conditioner. Check out our full review below for our full rundown of this impressively versatile cooling appliance.

Note: If your local climate has a humidity level above 60%, we advise investing in a traditional air conditioner, as this unit may raise humidity levels to an uncomfortable level.
