Nomadic Cooling 12V RV Air Conditioner (9500 BTU)
Looking for off-grid RV air conditioning unit that can be run from your batteries? The Nomadic Cooling 12V RV Air Conditioner (9500 BTU) is the perfect solution! It installs onto your van’s roof just like a traditional RV air conditioner, but is vastly more energy-efficient. In fact, this Nomadic Cooling AC uses less than half of the electricity of a traditional RV rooftop A/C unit. Most rooftop air conditioners require 120 volt AC power to operate, from shore power or a generator. In some cases, you can run a standard unit from an inverter but inverters often struggle starting the compressor. In contrast, the Nomadic Cooling air conditioner uses 12 volt DC power, so it can run directly off your 12-volt battery bank without an inverter.
Not sure which air conditioner model to get? Use a BTU calculator to determine your cooling requirements. Calculate the interior dimensions of your space, your insulation level (because it's a van with windows and not much thermal mass, I'd select "poor"), and desired temperature increase - calculate the maximum cooling output you might ever need, and size your air conditioner to be capable of that.
