Garages and workshops can be difficult areas to cool, especially since they aren’t well-insulated or well-sealed. If you plan to spend a lot of time in these spaces, consider cooling them with a portable air conditioner. A portable AC will substantially lower the room temperature without taking up much space. Garage air conditioners should be powerful, rugged, and dependable. Due to the heat and lack of insulation, we recommend that you overestimate the size and power needed to cool the area. If your garage has a window, venting a portable AC is simple using the included window kit; if not, you’ll have to vent through a wall or out the main garage door. This may require specialized installation, so feel free to call us with any questions at 1-800-934-9194. We recommend the following portable air conditioners for use in garage and workshop environments.
