The Air Conditioner (A/C) is an electrical device in ARK: Survival Evolved that provides a short range increase in both hyperthermal and hypothermal insulation when powered, useful for both survival and Breeding.


While fairly expensive, the A/C provides a positive bonus of up to +100 to both insulation values, helping to combat both cold and heat. Because of this, it is very helpful for both hatching fertilized Dino Egg Eggs, and protecting players from extreme weather.

Multiple A/Cs stack their insulation effect, desirable for incubating or surviving extreme temperatures.


The Air Conditioner does not require a foundation for placement, and as such does not interfere with the spawning of natural resources. It does not snap to other structures.


The A/C's radius is two foundations. Its insulation bonus goes from 100 at its center to zero at two foundations away. Its effects pass through structures. There is no difference regardless if it is placed indoors or outdoors. To receive the maximum insulation bonus, the target should be located as close as possible to the A/C. Equation for insulation by distance is -37.6x+128 based on testing.


  • Some Eggs may require up to ten air conditioners to incubate, be prepared for the cost!
  • The Air Conditioner is treated as a wooden structure and can not be damaged by hands, stone weapons, or non-explosive ranged attacks.
  • The following aggressive creatures can not damage the Air Conditioner:
