A question: how much does it cost to have central air installed?
The cost to install central air varies widely. ‘The average cost to install central air conditioning ranges between $5,000 and $12,000, with most homeowners paying $7,000 for a 2,000 square foot home,’ says Adam Graham, construction industry analyst at Fixr.
So a wide range where the small number is still a big number.
Another question: how much does the average window unit weigh?
The average weight of most residential window ACs is between 40 and 130 pounds.
Another range of numbers where the smaller number it still a big number.
In other words: central air, which gives you air conditioning everywhere, is cost prohibitive, whereas it would be ridiculous for you to move a window unit from one room to the other.
What you get with today’s product is the perfect compromise. It’s super portable, so you can take it with you from one room to another. Let’s say you work from home in a small apartment, for example. You can wake up in a nicely air-conditioned bedroom and then wheel this thing down the hall to your home office. Or you could use it to cool your sewing room and then roll it into the guest bedroom when your friend shows up for an extended stay. Or whatever. Point is, it can effectively cool up to 200 square feet without needing to be installed in a window. Just fill it with water and it’ll use “innovative waterfall cooling technology to propel air through an ice-cold honeycomb filter.”
Also, it works as a fan. Also, it runs at just 65 watts, which is pretty friggin’ energy efficient. Also, even if you have to move it up some stairs, it only weighs 17lbs.
In other words, a great easy cooling option for about $80. Not bad, eh?
