Some people often confused air conditioners and air curtains,

Now, let’s answer the difference between the air curtain and the air conditioner.

The biggest difference between air conditioners and air curtains is: Air conditioners can be cooled, while air curtains can only blow natural wind.

The main components of the air curtain are:

  1. Motor
  2. Windwheel
  3. Remote control
  4. Heating type air curtains with PTC heaters

The core components of the air conditioner are the compressor, and the air curtain is not available.

so the air conditioner and the air curtain are two different machines that cannot be replaced, but they can complement each other.

For example, in the hot summer, air-conditioning cooling the area, and air curtains can form a good air barrier at the door.

prevent excessive leakage of air-conditioning and save high summer electricity bills.

In the same way, in winter, the air curtain can also prevent warm air from leaking out and save energy.
