Cooling Options for Studio Apartments

Have you been searching for economical cooling solutions for your studio apartment? The heat this summer has been relentless, so if you are looking for a cooling unit that will do the trick without breaking the bank, we have some great suggestions for you.

A couple of the main features consumers want to know about when purchasing an indoor evaporative air cooler, or a portable air conditioner are: the power and strength of the unit, and how large a room it will cool. Living in a studio apartment allows you the flexibility of choosing the smaller, less expensive units.

Portable Evaporative Air Coolers

Evaporative air coolers provide the perfect solution for studio apartment dwellers that live in a climate with low humidity. Evaporative air coolers need dry air to cool the air, making them less desirable and less effective in humid climates, yet ideal for dry climates.

Many portable evaporative air cooler models can easily cool one large room or a studio apartment and they don’t require any setup or costly installation–they just need to be plugged into the wall and are ready to use. They also use less energy than portable air conditioners (and a great deal less than central air conditioning), which guarantees lower electricity bills.

There aren’t any maintenance costs with portable evaporative coolers, just an easy cleaning routine once a week to keep them working at an optimum level.

If a studio apartment has small windows without enough of a breeze, portable air coolers will fix this problem since the window must remain open at all times and the powerful blower will provide great air circulation and ventilation throughout the room.

Here are some examples of evaporative coolers that would be idea for studio apartments:

Portable Air Conditioners

Portable air conditioners are a welcome relief for those living in studio apartments in humid climates, since they are easy to install, and don’t take up an entire window like window air conditioners. A window kit and exhaust hose is provided with every portable air conditioner. Smaller units will effectively cool a studio apartment, providing cost-savings on the actual purchase as well as cost savings on electricity compared with central air conditioning.
