Since it weighs less than 25 pounds, the IHS Air Cooler Plus is relatively easy to carry from room to room. In addition, it has coaster wheels for easy mobility without having to lift the unit.
The IHS Air Cooler Plus uses evaporative cooling, so it must be refilled with cool water regularly. As a result, a filled unit is more difficult to carry than an empty one. In addition, evaporative cooling systems struggle in humid environments, making them a poor choice where muggy summers are common. While they lack the portability of evaporative air conditioners, window air conditioners offer superior cooling and more reliable operation.
