Trying to keep cool in South Florida is not only a thing of the summer. We get a couple months of cool weather out of the year. I’m usually trying to find shade or hang out indoors with the AC because fans are usually too hot. This summer I had the luxury of testing an awesome product that filled my outdoor cooling needs. The Portacool Cyclone 1000 was my weapon of choice this summer combating the heat. Its a portable evaporative cooler that can keep you cool where a traditional air conditioner can’t.
The Cyclone 1000 is different from traditional coolers because it doesn’t just blow ambient air back at you. This unit works by simply filling up with water and running the unit. The unit uses an internal pump to cool the water and create a chilled air working off of evaporation.The fan then blows off chilled air that will certainly keep you cool. You don’t have to worry about getting wet, Portacool Cyclone is not a mister. The Cyclone 1000 model has an 8 gallon reservoir that can be filled manually or via the included hose hook-up.
The unit can be used in any outdoor application where a power source is available. Uses include but are not limited to residential, industrial, farm, recreational, tailgating, fitness and much more. Best of all, Portacool is a “green” option for cooling. Their units don’t require the use of freon or other types of refrigerants. Only thing you need is water and power, Portacool will do the rest. There is a very small footprint this product leaves and only requires a standard 115v hook-up.
The next time you’re watching an NFL game or your favorite collegiate team play, take a close look at the side lines, you may spot a Portacool unit! They are there for a reason, because the work! I’ve had the pleasure of using my unit in everything from casually hanging outside with friends, pool time with the kids and even while cooking in the grill. I already have plans to take the unit out with my on my next camping adventure. I’ll be sure to carry my long extension cord and hook it up inside my tent with the windows unzipped to get cool air with outside ventilation.
