Close Comfort COOL FOCUS is a portable air conditioner with just 300 Watts of power, compared to the 5,000 Watts of our refrigerated cooling solution. So for example, if we have to pay 30c per kWh, running the refrigerated cooling for an hour will cost us: 5kWh * 30c = $1.50. If it runs through the whole night for 7 hours, that’ll cost us 7 x $1.50 = $10.50 per night! If you have a reverse split system, it’s probably about half the cost, depending on the power.

If something like the COOL FOCUS is used, it’d cost us 0.3kWh * 30c = $0.09 per hour! If it runs through the whole night for 7 hours, that’d cost us 7 x $0.09 = $0.63 per night. HUGE difference.

I have an office at the front of the house with a large glass window, which gets the morning sun and heats up the room. This portable air conditioner from Close Comfort is the perfect device to cool just this room. If later in the day I decide to spend time in the Rumpus, or living room, it’d be easy to move the air conditioner there as well.

This product is fairly special given it’s designed in Australia, by a company that has invested in creating the best portable air conditioning products for more than a decade. All things considered the Close Comfort Cool Focus portable air conditioner does what it’s designed to do and does it well.

Close Comfort portable air conditioners are distinct from other devices – the single unit is truly portable and lightweight without the need for installation, water or a window duct to run, just simply plug it in.

The Close Comfort unit has appeal to a broad range of users, but could well be of interest to the RV market for anyone on mains power camping or who can generate their own.

This personal airconditioner is very effective at cooling you down from 1-2 metres away and genuinely feels like refrigerated cooling, which it is. I have purchased it to cool my personal space down over summer.

Incredible energy saving, and great performance in temperature dropping. I purchased it with a tent, and no more hot and intolerable nights for my husband and me. I can keep it on overnight with less than $1 electricity fees. Also much better than a fan or a central air-con when I’m working alone. Very flexible, very quiet, and very efficient. Thanks for the good product.

In many cases personal cooling provides more than sufficient cooling (and indeed can be more thermally comfortable). The energy savings of adopting widespread personal cooling could be massive.

The big advantage of this type of portable AC is that its rated power capacity is about 1/5 of that of a conventional portable device (300W cf 1,500W). There is also no need to use the very cumbersome flexible exhaust pipes which restrict where the conventional portable space cooling devices are able to be located.

I just want to thank you for this amazing invention. I have a split AC in one room, but now I can go to the other rooms and have just enough cool air to be comfortable anywhere in my home. Thank you!

Congratulations to the team for such an amazing invention. Very impressive! I enjoy it in 39 degrees and can’t thank Close Comfort enough for saving my life 🙂 It’s so cheap to run! It doesn’t take up room! I searched for 3 weeks before I called you guys 🙂

This invention is absolutely fabulous. I live in a large rented house and the landlord won’t allow me to install an air conditioner. It’s so helpful for me.
