A Coolzy releases only 340 Watts, similar to three people in the room. A Coolzy directs its warm air exhaust to the ceiling where the heat is absorbed, just like the warmth from your fridge which you don’t notice (warm air rises naturally). Any excess finds its way out of open windows or doors.
Without sufficient ventilation, even this small amount of heating can raise the temperature in the upper part of a small room. Learn how to provide extra ventilation for a small room.
A Coolzy works in any room, even outside in sheltered places. It creates a micro-climate, a cool zone, up to 6 feet by 6 feet (about 4 square metres).
If the temperature inside your bedroom regularly exceeds 80 °F (27 °C) at night, the Igloo tent provides extra cooling to keep you comfortable, and also provides chemical-free mosquito protection. The Igloo tent also reduces the air conditioner power consumption to about 180 Watts average, a valuable saving for off-grid battery installations. The Igloo tent also provides an ideal place for your baby or small child to be cool and comfortable during the day time.
We recommend keeping a Coolzy near you, no more than 3 – 6 feet (1 or 2 metres) away. If you need it further away, or want to use while you are standing, we recommend our Focus Enhancer adjustable nozzle accessory (already included with our Coolzy-Pro units) that extends the range and optionally directs the cool air flow at a higher angle.
No. A Coolzy is designed for energy-efficient cooling in summer. An electric throw blanket is an extremely energy-efficient option for winter warmth.
If you need to cool a crowded room for 2 – 3 hours, a split AC is effective. Split ACs provide no fresh air exchange and the doors and windows need to be closed to retain the cool air so carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds and body odours build up with time. Prolonged use of split ACs for sleeping can cause dry itchy eyes and skin irritation from dry air and the running cost can be very high. Expect to pay $1,500 or more to install it and $45 – $100 a month for electricity if you use it for sleeping or during the day.
You can use your Coolzy with the split AC at the same time, leaving the split AC thermostat at a higher temperature to save on running cost. Coolzy provides extra cooling where you need it.

Here is a short video to explain.
You should remember to clean the filters every two weeks or so.
You can do this less often once you have experience of using your air conditioner and you can judge when to clean the filters for yourself.
