But both types of cooling systems differentiate from each other. An evaporative cooler is also known as “Swamp Coolers” is a cooling device to provide cool air into a room. They work on fans and water to create cool air and decrease room temperature by 20 degrees. Portable air conditioners are a smaller version of the central air unit. Portable ac contains the same refrigeration chemicals as bigger and uses a compressor, condenser, & evaporative to create a cooling process. The process for a portable air conditioner is a bit complicated than an evaporative cooler. Portable air conditioners can work in any climate. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
