Australian air-conditioning company Close Comfort has released a portable air-conditioning unit featuring revolutionary patented Australian technology.
If differs from traditional air-conditioners by "offering personal comfort through localised cooling", meaning it "presents a sustainable option and offers significant savings to household energy bills".
The unit in question is the Close Comfort PC9+Plus, and it is billed as an efficient cooling solution when compared to existing ducted and portable air conditions on the market.
At 17Kg, it is a lightweight unit, and unlike traditional portable air-conditioners, "does not require pipes enabling instant use and castor wheels provide portability from room to room. It uses a refrigerant to cool not requiring water or ice providing convenient self-operation".
In addition, unlike split system air conditioners, "windows can remain open allowing fresh air to circulate in a room, making it a healthier alternative".
As you can imagine, it is billed as "the ideal cooling solution for indoors and can also extend to recreational activities like camping, boating and picnics".
The company notes that the air-conditioning segment is saturated by overseas brands, with this "Australian-owned invention by engineering Professor James Trevelyan set to compete internationally and with planned expansion to additional markets".
Between 2007 and 2009, the West Australian engineer "trialled the idea of a compact localised cooling solution. Through continued research, development of prototypes and subsequent modifications, Close Comfort PC9+Plus was to provide quality and convenient air conditioning affordable to all".
And, as a testament to robust performance, "Close Comfort was successfully piloted in one of the hottest climates internationally, Pakistan, having experienced its highest temperature of 53.3°C in 2010".
