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.
IIf 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.
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.
About 2500-3500 BTUs per hour, depending on temperature: that is about 1/4 ton of refrigeration capacity.
Yes, absolutely.It’s best to keep windows closed and curtains drawn in the hottest part of the day, but at other times, Close Comfort works best with open windows and fresh outside air.
Close Comfort uses Smart Air Flow Technology to create a steady stream of cool air that is effective up to 150 – 250cm from the cold air outlet.
The thermostat in the PC9+plus model allows you to regulate air temperature.
Close Comfort works harder in humid conditions to keep you feeling cool.
Close Comfort is made to provide relief from the heat, so it can be used in any indoor climate up to 44°C. In extreme conditions we recommend you use a patented Close Comfort bed tent.Like any machinery, to avoid overheating, it is advised that the unit be kept out of direct sunlight.
Depending on the heat and ventilation, Close Comfort can run 24 hours a day without any problems. Make sure you check the air filters from time to time and clean them when needed.
Close Comfort does not require any water, gas, batteries or ice to operate. It operates solely on electricity
The unit can be plugged into any standard power outlet.
Close Comfort requires no ducting, plumbing or piping of any kind. Water condensed from humid air is re-evaporated, but up to 2 litres of distilled water can be collected if you need it to top up your batteries or for ironing clothes. The water is not suitable for drinking.
Close Comfort weighs just 17 kg and is easy to carry. It comes with castor wheels for easy movement and positioning
The entire unit is 28cm x 39cm x 55cm high, making it compact and easy to move, position and store in any environment.
Yes! In sheltered places, Close Comfort works very wel.
No. Close Comfort produces enough cool air to keep one or two people at the same location cool and comfortable through the day and night. If you need to cool the entire room for a special occasion or meeting, then you should use a conventional air conditioner just for that time. You can use conventional air conditioning with a higher thermostat setting to obtain better economy, say 28-30°C. Then use Close Comfort where you need a little extra cooling.
Unlike conventional air conditioners that throw out huge amounts of hot and humid air, Close Comfort exhausts a gentle stream of warm air up to the ceiling where the heat dissipates without warming the room perceptibly.
First, with a UPS you get uninterrupted sleep through load shedding so you wake feeling refreshed and ready to enjoy life. Second the tent keeps out insects at night protecting you from bites, dengue and malaria. Third, with the windows open at night, you sleep in fresh air. With a family all sleeping together in a room with a split AC, the air is never refreshed. Harmful air builds up through the night and everyone shares it. Users have commented to us that with Close Comfort, they don’t experience that nasty itchy eye feeling from normal air conditioners when they wake up. Finally the tent gives you some privacy: you can leave the doors and windows open but people cannot see you inside the tent.

equal to or greater than the life of a standard air conditioner. It has no parts
exposed to the outside weather conditions so should last longer.
