Close Comfort releases only 300 Watts, similar to three people in the room. Close Comfort 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.
Close Comfort works in any room, even outside in sheltered places. It creates a micro-climate, a cool zone, up to 4-5 square metres.
If the temperature inside your bedroom regularly exceeds 28°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 Close Comfort near you, no more than 1 or 2 metres away. If you need it further away, or want to use while you are standing, we recommend our Cool Focus accessory which extends the range and optionally directs the cool air flow at a higher angle.
No. Close Comfort is designed for energy-efficient cooling in summer. An electric throw rug 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 $120 – $250 a month for electricity if you use it for sleeping or during the day.

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.
