I can't stand summer heat it really wear me down and I can't turn on the air-conditioner the whole day it would definitely shoot my our electricity bill. While surfing online, I stumble upon Evapolar which said is the world's first personal air conditioner. According to the description it is even better than your air-conditioner since it cools, humidifies and cleans the air creating your local perfect microclimate.
It works using the power of water evaporation but they are not like the inefficient small air coolers since Evapolar uses the most advanced cooling technology. And unlike your regular air conditioner it is low in power consumption. Evapolar doesn't need Freon or any other toxic coolant.
The materials used for this product are easily recyclable and don't deal any harm to the environment.
It works like this you will need to pour water in the removable water tank and plug Evapolar in. Within 2-3 minutes Evapolar cartridge absorbs the water. The water then spreads evenly on the surface of the cooling pads. When the air goes through the pads, the water evaporates, which makes the air cool down while getting saturated with water. The in-built fan helps the cool air spread on the area of 3-4 sq m around you. The power control enables you to adjust the cooling effect, creating most comfortable thermal conditions for you. Yep, to me it sounds like a regular air cooler but it says that they call it “air conditioner” rather than “air cooler” due to its efficiency in comparison with “traditional” conditioners meaning the air released by Evapolar is much cooler than the regular air coolers in the market today.
Evapolar cools the air by evaporating water, which makes the device an efficient humidifier. You won’t have to buy a separate conditioner, humidifier, or purifier. Evapolar consumes absolutely less power than standard split systems only at 10W, which will clearly bring down your electricity bills. It said that the maximum temperature drop is 15C.
According to the product information it is very easy to use and ready to operate right out of the box. All you need to do is fill the water tank and plug in the device. The water tank needs to be refilled every 6-8 hours as the water evaporates.
