Description of TZ 17K Portable Air Conditioners

These powerful 17,600 BTU industrial air conditioners are portable, have easy to use manual knob thermostat controls, and can be moved around easily thanks to 4 heavy duty casters. Portable air conditioners are designed to spot cool industrial, commercial, institutional, and construction sites in areas that always seem to stay warm, even with central air conditioning. Consider these units for staff and equipment cooling emergencies, hospitals, schools, HVAC support during rehab, and computer rooms.

It is easiest to purchase several ceiling discharge kits with the industrial ac unit, which allows for quick placement of the air conditioner in various places in need of cooling. Because these units sit indoors, they are not exposed to damp conditions which can breed mold and mildew inside traditional window air conditioners. Portable industrial air conditioners can be ducted with many supply and return configurations if needed.

TZ 17K Portable Air Conditioners are ideal for someone who...
  • Would like portable commercial air conditioning unit that puts out 17,600 BTUs to cool a 500 sq. ft. area (sq. ft. can vary based upon ceiling height, number of people in room, etc).
  • Needs supplemental cooling because the central air conditioning in offices, hospitals, schools, etc. does not effectively cool the upper floors or far corners.
  • Wants effective commercial air conditioners for "spot cooling" overheated areas within large buildings (meeting rooms, classrooms), or for outdoor special events.
  • Needs commercial air conditioning during planned events such as plant turnarounds, production processing and retooling.
  • Can use inexpensive insurance in the event of emergency overloads or shutdowns - portable air conditioning units offer a quick way to cool equipment, processes and staff.
  • Requires air conditioners for computer and telecommunication rooms—independent of buildings HVAC system.
  • Needs industrial air conditioners to support permanent HVAC systems during rehab and retro-fit operations.
  • Has awkward sized windows that standard size window air conditioners cannot accommodate.
  • Wants to avoid the expense of buying several permanent-mounting window air conditioners.
  • Does not want to destroy the paint or woodwork around a window with an air conditioning unit that must be secured with nails - especially important if residing in a rented space.
  • Prefers a warranty when purchasing an air conditioner - these units carry a 1-year warranty; 3-year for compressor.

Expert Review:    Courtesy of AllergyBuyersClub.com


  • Highest energy efficiency rating and highest operating limit (110°F) among all TZ models we carry.
  • Easy to access large capacity condensate tank - condensate tank located in the front of the air conditioner uses auto-shut-off when tank is full, and easy access panel for emptying tank is appreciated.
  • Very versatile positioning for air conditioners - ability to use as free-standing cooling systems or to place outside room and duct air where needed - also ability to set up many supply and return configurations to promote air conditioning efficiency.
  • Easy to change and washable air filters - 2 filters included for return air are easily accessible, washable, and dishwasher safe.
  • Simple temperature controls with manual knob to set warmer or cooler, and flip switch for automatic or continuous fan.
  • Easy to move - these air conditioners have 4 heavy-duty, sturdy casters that will last.
  • Well built - completely self-contained air conditioner housing within an insulated cabinet of galvanized steel.
  • Flexible temperature control - capacity of air conditioners to cool down to 65°F.
  • On-site repair - the TZ portable air conditioners are easily serviced with removable side panels providing access from all sides.
