Rental Portable Air Conditioners for Data Center Augmented Cooling

29 April 2020

American Spot Cooling - Portable Air Conditioner Houston, TX

Data centers house foundationally important business assets. Data centers store equipment that require specific climate control in terms of both heat and humidity management. Data center managers plan and prepare for both scheduled and unscheduled HVAC outages. For decades now, Houston-area data managers turn to American Sport Cooling for their data center continuity of operations planning. Let’s review a few reasons why.

Portable air conditioners are a preferred cooling solution within data centers as “hot spots” tend to migrate within the data center. Spot coolers are employed where necessary to address migrating heat conditions.

  • Contingency power outages— Let’s face it. Houston’s electrical utility companies are not flawless. Unscheduled power outages do and will continue to occur. Our rental portable air conditioners deployed throughout Houston offer dependable solutions that enables data center managers to deliver uninterrupted data services and to protect their resources from overheating and damage. We can immediately respond to any spot cooling need at your business location.
  • Supplemental Cooling — There are cases when your establishment’s air conditioning might not be sufficient to evenly cool every area of your facility. Spot coolers can be employed in main spots where supplemental temperature control is needed.
  • Short-lived Cooling Needs for Certain Applications — There are some situations that demands the need for temporary cooling. For instance, you need to switch off a certain server for servicing and letting other servers handle the load, these servers performing additional work will heat up more than usual and thus, need extra cooling. Portable air conditioners can be employed to handle the job.

When you need immediate portable spot cooling service, contact Houston’s American Spot Cooling. We’ve faithfully served Houston for decades now.

Filtration Mechanisms of HEPA Filter

18 April 2020

American Spot Cooling - Rental Air Scrubber Mobile Air RA-650

During this pandemic and critical chapter in American history, there is unprecedented interest and frequently asked questions regarding High-Efficiency Particulate Air filters. So, we’re going to spend some time today educating you all as best we can on the subject of HEPA filtration.

HEPA filters trap particles of various size and origins via the following mechanisms:

  • Inertial Impaction - Inertial impaction happens when large particles cannot adjust immediately to the sudden shifts in streamline direction close to a filter fiber. Due to the particle's inertia, it will proceed along its initial course and collide the filter fiber. This is the most paramount filtration mechanism when the filter material has elevated gas velocities and compact fiber packing.

  • Diffusion - The gas is made of multiple molecules that are small in size when compared to the distances between them. These molecules are like corrugated orbs that move in parallel lines when they're not banging into each other. These molecules hit with each other immensely that they move in an irregular, zigzagging path which is called Brownian motion.

    Brownian motion is the cause of the diffusion mechanism of particle retention. Tiny particles that range in diameter of 0.1 μm and below are inclined to make irregular movements due to contact with spiraling gas molecules. When these small particles collide with the gas molecules, they as well start to move randomly around, bumping into other particles too. Diffusion happens with low gas velocities and smaller particles. The tinier the particle, the slower the flow as it takes longer to zigzag around, thus, providing a greater likelihood of bumping and adhering to a filter fiber.

  • Interception - Interception happens when a particle moves in accordance with a gas flow path that appears within 1 particle radius of a filter fiber. The particle in contact with the fiber becomes trapped, thereby eliminated from the gas stream. For a particular size, there are some streamlines that will travel near enough to a filter fiber in order for the particle to be trapped. Streamlines beyond 1 particle radius far from a filter fiber will not facilitate the interception mechanism.

These mechanisms make HEPA filter effective in eliminating contaminants such as bacteria, allergens, mold, and sub-micron sized dust. HEPA filters capture 0.3 microns and larger at a 99.97% rate. Negative air machines and air scrubbers with HEPA filters are excellent devices that remove impurities and purify the air. These machines are ideal in hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare settings.

American Spot Cooling Houston, TX - 15KW Rental Electric Heater Fostoria FES-15243E

Portable electric heaters are now considered as essential equipment to many trades within the construction industry. They functionally support the quality control of numerous sub-contractor trade service deliverables. Let’s discuss just a few benefits of rental portable heaters within the construction industry.

Concrete Curing

Curing is a crucial process that must be done properly to ensure the concrete's strength and durability. The temperature must be kept in specific level. This process requires five to seven days. With the help of rental portable heaters, we can sped up the process. This is particularly helpful during cold weather. These devices deliver a certain range of heat during the frigid weather without requiring a ventilation for dangerous gas.

Drywall Drying

Another important process in the construction is drywall drying. The mud compound for drywall installation can take a while to thoroughly dry. It's crucial that the drywall must be dry prior to sanding process starts. Spot heaters are convenient to use especially during winter as it can make the drying process faster.


A dry space is required when working with woods and other finishing materials. To keep your work area dry, a portable heater can help.


Latex paints are not recommended to be applied in an environment with cold temperature below 50 degrees F. Thus, portable heaters are used to elevate the temperature in cold zones. It is the preferred type of heater to work around paint because its heat source won't cause a reaction from different mixture of paint products.

If you manage construction projects with tight quality control standards, rent portable electric heaters to help you expedite and maximize the quality of your firm’s product deliverables. Contact American Spot Cooling & Power Rental to rent your units today.
