Best A/Cs for Camping

Best A/Cs for CampingHome HVAC essentials have their place—even when that place is far from home. While air conditioning’s long been a pleasure reserved for indoor enjoyment, today more and more people transport that cool indoor environment out into the great outdoors, too. If you’re drawn to the open road or recharge your spirit out in nature’s beauty, you don’t have to give up the benefits of HVAC essentials when you get there.

Here are some options to consider:

Tent Fans

Moving air provides a cooling sensation by evaporating perspiration. Lightweight, battery-powered camping fans are increasingly standard equipment in the wild. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, they’re useful to provide not only cool comfort but effective ventilation, too—excess humidity and moisture accumulation inside enclosed tents is common. Some models can be attached or hung from the top of the tent interior to duplicate the comforting downward airflow of a home ceiling fan.

RV Cooling

When parked in a fixed location, many RV nomads want better cooling options. The traditional rooftop RV air conditioner is basically a standard home window unit configured for a recreational vehicle. The rapid spread of residential ductless mini-split heat pump technology, however, is now increasingly adaptable to RV applications, too. Consisting of a compact indoor air handler/blower connected to a downsized outdoor heat pump, the smallest systems are easily installed and provide 9,000 BTUs of high-efficiency cooling capacity to effectively cool an RV. The lower power requirements of small mini-split heat pumps are easily accommodated by a small generator.

Micro A/C

If you’re looking for cool comfort to go, your timing is right. The micro AC era has now arrived. These diminutive air conditioners quickly becoming widely available are about 12 inches by 16 inches and less than 10 pounds. With around 3,500 BTU cooling capacity for an RV or campsite, most micro AC units can be powered by a 100-watt solar panel or a rechargeable battery power pack that provides about 6 hours of coolness.

HVAC essentials enhance quality of life, wherever you live it. That’s been Paitson Bros. commitment to Wabash Valley residents since 1922.
