A Portable A/C for Dogs

Use All Day. Low Running Cost. Works Outside.



Summer heatwaves can cause sickness in animals, especially dogs and putting dogs inside isn’t always practical. A Coolzy is a portable air conditioner that can be set-up outside for your pet and left to run all day long.

Low Running Cost

A Coolzy is a small, low power portable air conditioner that will run all day for less than a $1 of electricity. Think of it as a small fridge with a fan inside it. A Coolzy is compact so it can be installed in a dog house or wherever animals rest. It has patented focusing technology that direct the cold ait that it produces at a particular spot that an animal sleeps in. This ensures the animal can rest and not overheat. A Coolzy is a genuine A/C that uses real refrigerant and a compressor to create a steady flow of cool air. A Coolzy never requires water or ice.

How our portable A/C works

A compressor pushes refrigerant gas into a condenser heat exchanger where a fan blows air through the fins to cool the refrigerant gas so it condenses to a liquid. The liquid, still at high pressure, passes through a thin capillary tube or an expansion valve, reducing the pressure. The low pressure liquid is squirted into a second heat exchanger called the evaporator. Here the liquid evaporates into a cold gas, cooling air flowing past the tubes. The gas, now warmer, passes back to the compressor where it is compressed once again. More info.

It’s summer and it’s sizzling. Your cat has turned into a pool of fur melted across your floor and your dog’s panting is your new summer soundtrack. In a bid to beat behind-the-knee-sweat (we’ve all been there) you open up your Coolzy full blast, and your cat jumps on your lap looking grateful, which is a first. Obviously while you’re home you can ‘chill’ together, but what about when you go out, should you leave your air conditioning on for your pets?

Pet Air Conditioning: Yes or No?

The general consensus from veterinarians is YES; create a cooler environment for your animals, because if you’re suffering from the heat, your 4-legged friends most certainly are.

Dogs and cats generally run 5 – 7 °F (3-4°C) hotter than humans and unlike us they can’t sweat. As they can’t drop their furs off at coat check they have to deal with the heat their own way…

Hot Dogs

Dogs keep cool by panting, which evaporates moisture from their lungs and takes the heat away from their bodies. However, in extreme heat and humidity, panting simply exchanges hot air for hotter air, which can leave them at risk of heat exhaustion.

When it comes to keeping dogs cool, short-nosed dogs like Bulldogs or Pugs cannot cool themselves easily enough through panting and dogs that come from colder climates and have shaggier, thicker coats, like Newfoundlands or Huskies need a little extra help adjusting to the heat, so aircon certainly helps.

Cool Cats

Cats turn to grooming themselves more in hot temperatures, with the evaporating saliva causing a cooling effect, much like sweating for humans. Cats are also the masters of minimising movement when it gets too hot, as well as finding the coolest spot in the house to hide when the heat is on. But sometimes curling up in the bathroom sink isn’t enough to keep your cat cool.

The Perfect Temperature 

Both dogs and cats can cool themselves more efficiently in cooler air. Older animals, especially those who are overweight or have health issues, are at more risk when the mercury is rising. A good rule of thumb for air con is if it’s comfortable for you, it’s comfortable for your furry friends.

Other heat busting tips are to close blinds and curtains to create shade for your animals and to make sure they always have plenty of access to fresh water and circulating air.

Pet and dog portable A/C

Won’t my pets just adjust to the heat?

According to weather.com 2021 was the hottest on record, just ahead of the 1936 scorcher. Four of the five hottest summers have been witnessed since 2010. With summers getting hotter and drier and energy costs climbing, finding effective and financially viable cooling solutions will be an on-going issue for most households.

Some might argue that leaving the air con on for an animal is overkill as dogs and cats are very adaptive. This is true, but only to a point. While they may get used to rising temperatures over time, sudden spikes will still affect them negatively.


Is All Day Air Conditioning an Option?

With climate change now a pressing issue, leaving your energy-guzzling room or ducted home air con running all day is just not on.

Soaring power costs also make this a less viable option, especially given a recent Finder.com.au survey that revealed 23% of people admitted to leaving their air conditioner on all day when they’re not home.

As Australians collectively spend over $2 billion during summer on air conditioning, these costs can quickly mount up.

Coolzy, on the other hand, uses so little energy and has such a small amount of climate-friendly refrigerant, you can now cool your little friend all day without it being on your conscience. Plus with 75% less power than the smallest standard air conditioners, you can keep them cool for less than $1 a day, or far less with even the smallest solar panels.

Comparing Coolzy to other Portable Air Conditioners

Portable air conditioners range from $999 (Zero Breeze) to $1499 (EcoFlow Wave) but they aren’t all the same. They need to have a good Co-Efficient of Performance (CoP). The CoP is usually between 2.3 and 3: these are highly inefficient machines. Coolzy does not mix the cool air with the room air. Instead the cool air is carefully focused at the user’s face and upper body. Coolzy sends warm air from the back to the ceiling, just like a kitchen refrigerator or freezer. This gives a Coolzy the highest CoP on the market!

An evaporative air conditioner (normally called an air cooler), works by evaporating water into the room. This uses very little energy BUT it also is less effective AND it needs to be filled with water regularly. Air coolers do not work in high humidity.

A compressor-driven portable air conditioner uses refrigerant to cool the air. Compressor-driven portable air conditioners are more effective at cooling and work in all environments.

There are several advantages to using a mobile air conditioner like Close Comfort:

  1. Portability: Mobile air conditioners are designed to be portable, which means you can easily move them from one room to another. This is especially useful if you live in a small apartment or don’t have the space for a traditional air conditioning unit.
  2. Easy to Install: Mobile air conditioners are easy to install and don’t require any complicated setup. You simply plug them in, and they are ready to use.
  3. No Installation Required: Unlike traditional air conditioning units, mobile air conditioners don’t require any permanent installation. They don’t need to be mounted in a window or a wall, which means they are ideal for renters or anyone who doesn’t want to make any permanent changes to their living space.
  4. Energy-Efficient: Mobile air conditioners are typically more energy-efficient than traditional air conditioning units. They only cool the area where they are located, which means they use less energy overall.
  5. Cost-Effective: Mobile air conditioners are often more cost-effective than traditional air conditioning units. They are generally less expensive to purchase, and they use less energy, which means you’ll save money on your electricity bill.
  6. Eco-Friendly: Mobile air conditioners are often more eco-friendly than traditional air conditioning units. They use less energy, which means they produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions.
  7. Quieter: Mobile air conditioners are typically quieter than traditional air conditioning units. This is because they don’t have an outdoor compressor, which is the source of much of the noise associated with traditional air conditioning units.
Mobile Air Con in Small Room

Small air conditioners provide limited cooling. Therefore it’s important to understand this limitation and how to use these devices.

A small camping air conditioner cannot cool a whole room. A small room needs at least 10,000 BTU/hr cooling capacity because of it’s thermal mass (the walls and furniture). If you want to cool a small room, with no insulation, you will need at least 12,000 BTU/hr cooling capacity which would be a big, heavy (very un-portable) air conditioner.

A large room, with little or no insulation, will need ~18,000 BTU/hr to cool the whole space (more in hot conditions). This is highly impractical for renters as you won’t be able to remove the A/C.

An alternative is to focus the cool air to only cool the person (instead of the entire room). This saves energy and cost. A Coolzy uses patented focusing technology to focus a stream of cool air directly to the person as a result. The Coolzy’s focused cooling is much stronger than a regular A/C this is spending most of it’s energy trying to counter the effects of it’s super warming evacuation pipe..

A Coolzy requires only 340 Watts. It weighs only 37 lbs and doesn’t always need to be vented. This makes it a truly mobile air con unit.
