Providing excellent cooling performance whilst using as little as a quarter of the energy needed to power a typical air conditioner, the Living Basix Portable Evaporative Air Cooler is ideal if you’re looking for relief from the summer heat without spending big on energy bills. Whilst its evaporation cooling method does has some does have a couple of limitations, as a cost efficient way to keep cool and comfortable it does a great job.
The Living Basix Portable Evaporative Air Cooler works by drawing in warm air, humidifying it with cold water and then pumping this cooled air back into the room. It is a simple system that works well and can cool a medium/large sized room effectively. The water reservoir holds over a gallon, which will last anywhere from four to ten hours depending on which setting you choose and the humidity of the room.
It’s important to note that the Living Basix Portable Evaporative Air Cooler needs fresh, dry air to work effectively – if the room is already full of humid air then performance will be heavily impeded so you should place the cooler near an open window where it will have a fresh supply of dry air to cool. In operation the Living Basix Portable Evaporative Air Cooler is quiet enough to not cause any disturbance to sleep, and you can also add ice to the water reservoir to knock a few extra degrees off the room temperature.
Overall the Living Basix Portable Evaporative Air Cooler is a simple, effective solution to cool down a room – as long as it’s used in the right conditions (i.e. a dry environment rather than humid). The relatively low cost of the unit itself versus a standard air conditioner along with its substantially lower running costs mean it offers great value whilst taking the edge of the hot summer weather.
