Hey folks,

     I hope this is in the right section - I figured it's somewhat related being a piece of equipment and all.  I'm looking for a low power usage portable air conditioner unit (something ~6 amps).  Does anyone have any experience with any particular one or another?

     Thanks,

I'm interested in this topic as well.  I have central A/C but I live in the southwest so supplemental air would be helpful to cool a "server" room so I don't need to max cool the rest of the house.

It was warm in NJ today I have 3000 watts of power running 7 ant s-1's and 20 plus gridseeds.   this is about 15000 btu of heat.

let me find a link to the one I had.  I would love to find one better then this one .

I had one of these a while back.  5000 btu   burned a lot of power as it is 8.6 rated.  I would like to find one like this with 10 seer or better.

Have you thought about just making an exhaust system to pipe the heated air out of the house through a window or something?

That's what I've been using, albeit crudely. If you can get a flat that has large windows or a juliet door then you can simply let it open and the air just plops out. If you're not in a place where that is appropriate, get a duct fitted externally with an external fan, aluminium hosing to another fan, then a large collector that you will SEAL around your miner exhausts. That way ~80% of the heat will be removed with only a small +temp penalty for the miners.

I've got 4k rpm delta fans on the back of the ants blowing out into an open room and intake from the window onto the ant's intakes.  Would perhaps running some crafted tubing sealed around the exhaust fans to the other window that isn't pulling air in work better?

I have too many open rigs (Bitfury, etc) to effectively use any kind of ducting to remove heat.  I suppose I could just put a box fan in the window for exhaust and close the door to the room so heat doesn't escape back into the house.  But I'm not sure how effective that will be when it's 110 degrees outside.  I usually love summer but I'm really dreading it this year.  It's going to be in the 90's later this week.   Undecided

I currently have several BFL Singles, a few Ants and an old ASICMiner Blade setup in my garage.  And during the day when it's 80+ degrees outside the Ants and Blades run a bit warm but are perfectly fine.  Meanwhile, the Singles overheat and spew errors like crazy.  Junk.  I don't know why I still haven't got rid of them yet.

Looks like the 12,000 BTU WYB012GMFI20RL model draws 10+ amps @ 220 volt Shocked

Ouch 1200W.. Is that really very efficient?

If you are going to spend $1000+ on cooling why not use 2 phase immersion cooling? Completely silent, high density, no heat (if radiator is outdoors), and 20W can cool something like 5kw.

If you are going to spend $1000+ on cooling why not use 2 phase immersion cooling? Completely silent, high density, no heat (if radiator is outdoors), and 20W can cool something like 5kw.

it is low cost for short term use  it runs 531 usd.

it cost about 6 usd a day to run it  so a 100 day use = 600 max at about 20 cents  a k watt.     for some it may be  a good solution.    

    remember many of us run the gear in their garage.

  4 new 1th units may pull 4k and give off 20000 btu of heat .  with some venting to blow the heat out of the garage.

 the heat in the home may be only 1/2 that .

  so the remaining 10,000btu this unit can do .  for a short 100 day summer.

 once the weather cools that heat is worth money.  I lower my heating bills  for 7 months a year  by 100-125 dollars each month.  It almost makes up for the extra ac in the summer.

But That is with running the central ac extra. my central air is 30000 btu.    this is 12000 btu.  for me it could work.


If I have a real mining setup.  ie a metal shed/hut 20 by 40 with 10k in power used each day for mining immersion cooling would be nice.

I am a bit desperate in looking for a Portable Air Conditioner that is quiet. I am willing to pay a high value for this as long as I can get the warranty and reliable. Can anybody please prescribe any brand that is ultra quiet and where would I be able to purchase it?

In the summer I will be installing one of the ones from this site:
http://www.klimaire.com/index.php/ductless-split-systems/mini-split.html


This type of system does not need to exhaust heat out because that is done by the compressor unit outside.  This may not work for everyone but if you have a semi-dedicated space, such as a garage or shed, this will be your best bet.

With 10kw of bitcoining you will need at least a half ton AC just to get around 75F in the enclosed area.

you might be able to wire it yourself, but you'll need an AC guy to properly release the coolant between the two machines (head unit/compressor)

Southeast US here and I have the same issue. I ended up buying a dual window fan unit from Home Depot, similar to this one http://www.homedepot.com/p/HDX-9-in-Twin-Window-Fan-FW23-A1/100663385?N=5yc1vZc4mm. It definitely helped me out in the summer and kept all my Jupiters cools.
