"I'm not a fan of fans. They just move air around. I used to joke that I'd like to have a small portable air conditioner in my booth and freezer strips hanging in the entrance to my booth. I wouldn't expect the air conditioner to cool…"

"It sounds like what I bought ten years ago for about 50 bucks. It was a hand held unit. It ran on AA batteries and had a small fan. You soaked a pad in water and inserted it. The fan blew over the wet pad and produced nothing but additional…"

"I've noticed a lot of ads on Facebook for a small portable "air conditioner" that appears to really be a battery operated fan that you put water in to make it more of a air conditioner.  Has anyone tried this?"

"Thanks for the reply. I'm not looking to cool the entire tent. I just need some relief for myself. If I purchase a used 8000BTU unit, I'll test it with my generator first."

How Markowitz replied to GEORGE NEUBERGER's discussion Air conditioning a booth?
"Considering the impossibility of trying to air condition a ‘tent’ in summer heat humidity and wind, with people coming and going... I would think a 24,000 btu unit might have more success!! You would only then need a small truck…"

"Oh, and ask for a space near an electrical outlet! At Ann Arbor we backed up to a lamp post where we plugged in all sorts of things ... lots of fans, lights, etc."

"Be ready for lots of jealous artists. When I ran lights off my generator I use to offer lights to the booths on either side and the booth behind me. Larry Berman"

GEORGE NEUBERGER replied to GEORGE NEUBERGER's discussion Air conditioning a booth?
"I already have approval to use a generator as I turn pens with a lathe. Having a generator for outdoor shows hasn't been a problem for me. I'm really just asking if anyone has tried using a portable air conditioner. Replies appreciated."

Connie Mettler replied to GEORGE NEUBERGER's discussion Air conditioning a booth?
"I don't either, but George, there are tons of threads on keeping cool at art fairs, what kinds of fans to use, fake ceilings, etc., on this site -- do a search and see what you can find. "

Larry Berman replied to GEORGE NEUBERGER's discussion Air conditioning a booth?
"Most shows don't allow generators. And the amount of electricity you're using at a show that offers electricity will cause circuits to blow if more artists use the same amount. There have been threads on using battery operated fans in your…"

Air conditioning a booth?

I recently did an outdoor show this month (June) & the heat was unbearable. Luckily I took a change of clothes before the show started, but I still found myself dripping from the humidity & heat.When I got back home I had an idea of adding a portable air conditioning unit to my tent. I have a 2000 watt portable generator that could handle an 8000 BTU unit.I can't be the first with this idea. Has any one had any luck running a portable AC?Thanks in advanceGeorgeSee More
