10 Reasons Why You Need a Personal, Portable Air Conditioner Right Now
Actually even more reasons!
During long, hot summer months, an air conditioner can prove invaluable in making your home livable during the day and creating a cool, comfortable environment at night to sleep well. While ducted or mini-split wall mounted air conditioners have been the go-to solution for many homeowners, some new portable personal air conditioners are proving to be a smart alternative to big, energy-hungry units. For people in search of a more cost-effective, eco-friendly cooling solution, a small personal air conditioner like Coolzy may be ideal.
Whether you are renting an apartment where you cannot install a wall mounted air conditioner, you’re not living in a permanent location, you live on your own, or you want to cut back on your electricity bill, there are plenty of reasons why a compact personal portable aircon might be a great option.
If you are looking for low-cost, climate-friendly cooling, here are 10 reasons to consider investing in a personal portable air conditioner like a Coolzy.
1. No Installation Required
One of the greatest things about a no-installation air conditioner, like Coolzy-Pro or Coolzy-Go, is that they can be unboxed, plugged in and you can enjoy a stream of cool air immediately. There are no unsightly pipes and drains to worry about, which means the sleek unit blends in with the rest of the room seamlessly.
A portable air conditioner without pipes also gives you the option of placing it anywhere in your home – it doesn’t need to be placed next to a window or door. Furthermore, an air conditioner without installation eliminates the costs involved with having to call out a certified installer to set up the unit, making it a more convenient, cost-effective alternative to larger wall mounted units.
2. Energy Efficient
Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the urgent need to make more sustainable choices. That’s why eco-friendly cooling systems are becoming more popular by the day. If you are looking for an energy-efficient air conditioner that cools without warming the planet, consider a personal portable air conditioner that is designed to use less power.
Coolzy’s unit is engineered with patented technology to make refrigerated cooling less energy intensive and more environmentally friendly. Using only 340 Watts, the equivalent of just a handful of lights, Coolzy-Pro saves between 70% and 80% electricity compared with a mini-split or traditional portable. In fact, it’s so energy efficient that you can run it all night long for less than a dollar. No other refrigeration air conditioner can provide so much cooling comfort on so little electricity.
You can find small personal evaporative coolers, often claimed to be ‘air conditioners’. While they are even more economical to run, you need to top them up with water frequently and replace the evaporator pads to avoid smells. Also they don’t work well in steamy humid weather.
3. Environmentally Friendly
Traditional home and office air conditioners pose a significant threat to the environment. Leaking HFC refrigerant gases, which have a global warming potential of up to 4,000 times that of CO2, With century-old technology, they could make climate change 25% worse than today’s forecasts if people continue to install millions of them every year as they do today.
Small personal air conditioners can offer a sustainable, energy-efficient option for a warming world. A Coolzy uses a tiny amount of natural propane refrigerant with negligible global warming effects. This non-toxic gas is held in a welded refrigeration circuit, which keeps it inside permanently. Unlike conventional air conditioners that leak a significant amount of harmful greenhouse gases throughout their lifetime, a personal portable aircon offers a much more environmentally-friendly option to consumers who’d like to do their bit in slowing down global warming.
4. Provides Instant Cooling
Large, wall mounted air conditioners are designed to cool the entire room. To get the room to a comfortable temperature, all the heat already in the structure, and more entering through air leaks around doors, light fittings, floors and windows need to be extracted first, which can take half and hour or longer.
Personal cooling units, on the other hand, focus a stream of cool air around you, creating your very own comfortable personal micro-climate in just a minute or so. This means that you don’t have to wait until the entire room is cool before feeling the cooling sensation. With a personal air conditioner, you can enjoy immediate comfort.
5. Portable, Lightweight and Compact
A personal air conditioner offers the best of both: It combines the portability of a pedestal fan with the cooling sensation of a fixed air conditioner. A lightweight portable air conditioner like Coolzy-Pro weighs only 34 lbs and has wheels, which makes it easy to move around from room to room or even from indoors to outdoors.
Its compact size (only (only 11 inches x 15 inches x 22 inches high, 29 cm x 39 cm x 55 cm high), light weight and convenient carry bag make it really easy to transport. Whether you need a portable air conditioner for camping, when visiting family, for your office, home gym, bedroom, living area or even the patio, this little unit is a great option to keep cool wherever you are. And during the cooler months, the compact unit can easily be stored away in a cupboard.
6. No Household Pollution
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is another reason you might consider investing in a personal air conditioner. Conventional indoor units rely on the room being sealed to work efficiently, which means there is no stream of fresh air that can enter the home. Eventually, gases such as CO2 and volatile organic vapours seeping out from the air conditioner’s plastics or adhesives gradually accumulate, which can make you feel drowsy.
Personal portable aircons, like Coolzys, are designed to function efficiently even with windows open, which means a constant stream of fresh air enters your home.
7. Can be Used Outdoors
There are many differences between a personal air conditioner and a wall mounted mini-split system. The main difference is that personal aircons cool people, not rooms. Personal portable air conditioners do this by focusing a stream of cool air at the space where cooling is needed, thereby creating an isolated micro-climate. This localized cooling effect is not reliant on a closed-off space and can therefore work anywhere, even outdoors in sheltered areas like patios, verandas, caravan annexes or tents.
8. No Costly Servicing
It’s said that for every year of operation in which a split system aircon is not serviced, it loses 5% of its efficiency. After 3 years therefore, the efficiency of the unit will have decreased by 15%. Having a conventional air conditioner serviced and inspected by a reliable, qualified technician at least once every year is costly. Personal portable aircons, like Coolzys, require minimal maintenance which you can easily do yourself, saving you a significant amount of money.
9. Quiet Operation
Coolzys run quietly (around 46-54dB), about the same noise level as an electric fan. That’s considerately quieter than a normal portable air conditioner or a window aircon. Quiet operation makes Coolzy’s units ideal for using in bedrooms or baby rooms as they don’t disturb sleep. The noise is enough to mask street sounds that come through the open window, but you will still hear birds singing outside.
10. Does Not Dry Out the Air
If you’re bothered by the drying effects of air conditioners, choose Coolzy. It collects water vapour condensed from the air and recirculates it in the room, so there is no drying effect. Many users have told us that the eye, skin and breathing problems they experienced with normal air conditioners went away when they switched to Coolzy.
Coolzy technology is ideal for humid conditions; in fact, it provides more cooling power when there’s more moisture in the air. And since it provides refrigerated cooling, there’s no need for water, drains or emptying condensed water. If you prefer an aircon without pipes, Coolzy is an excellent choice.
Here are three more good reasons!
11. Eliminate Power Bill Headaches
Save as much as 70% off your cooling costs due to Coolzy’s patented energy-efficient technology. Our units cost less than a dollar cents (3 kWh electricity units) a night to run in most locations compared to 10 – 20 kWh units with other comparable portable air conditioning units.
Coolzys work best with open windows and doors so you live in fresh air all the time, greatly reducing your risk of catching an airborne virus like Covid-19.
13. Insect protection
The optional Igloo bed tent provides chemical-free insect protection through the night and privacy in shares sleeping spaces.
