Great Personal Air conditionerBy: Dale Ratcliffe on 18 November 2019Have used it for about 2-3 weeks on very hot days. Works well easy to use
Great productBy: Ben Snow on 23 May 2019Great product for instant and portable cool air. I mainly use this in my caravan to get a great nights sleep. It doesn't cool down the whole van but it does blow cold refrigerated air in the immediate vicinity of the unit which makes it 10 times better than using a normal fan.
Q) Whats the difference between an Refrigerated Air Cooler and an Air Conditioner?
A) They both essentially cool the air using the refrigerant method - so technically there is no difference from an engineering point of view. In Australia we tend to relate air conditioning to the cooling of a whole room sealing in as much of that cool air as possible whilst venting warm air directly to the exterior of the room. The Close Comfort is not designed to cool a whole room like a normal Air Conditioner, rather it is designed to use a fraction of the energy of a traditional air conditioner by blowing cold refrigerated air directly on the user instead of trying to cool down the whole room. Any warm produced by the unit is naturally vented by leaving your windows or hatches open which is why the Close Comfort is far more economical to run and does not require ducted ventilation. This makes it portable and quick to setup in any room - or even outdoors.
Think of a fan that can blow refrigerated cold air instead of recirculating the existing warm air.
Q) Will this cool a whole room?
A) This unit is designed as a personal cooler and to keep the immediate vicinity of the cooler down to 17 degrees. If you adequately ventilate the room and allow the hot air escape, the overall temperature of the room will become slightly cooler.
Q) Can I use the cool comfort on my outdoor back patio?
A) Yes it is quite effective for the person it is aimed at. It is very effective for spot cooling - even outdoors.
