As Temperatures Climb, Consider This Portable Evaporative Cooler

* Lightweight construction makes it perfect for both indoor and outdoor use
* With three fan speeds, the loudest the Chill200 will get is just 61 db
* Will cool down an area roughly 500 sq ft wide

While the East Coast is currently getting the brunt of the heat, the West Coast is also expected to see above average temperatures this summer. Even if you do have air conditioning throughout your home, it may be worth investing in a portable evaporative cooler, like the Cool-Space Chill200 (CSC-200), to keep your immediate area cool and relaxed.

Evaporative coolers go by many names, with the most common being “swamp cooler,” “wet air cooler,” or even “desert coolers.” Though air cooling techniques date back to ancient Egyptian and Persian times, the modern evaporative cooler dates back to the early 1900s in the U.S. Without getting overly technical about how they work, we’ll try to explain in the simplest way possible – swamp coolers cool the air by evaporating water.

Now that you know a little more about evaporative coolers, let’s get back to the Cool-Space Chill200. At just 14 pounds and only 29 inches tall, the Chill200 will cool down an area of approximately 500 sq ft, making it perfect for use both in and outdoors. Cool-Space, which has been in operation since 1991, says the Chill200 costs less to power than a 60 watt bulb.

This portable cooler lets you control the temperature in your own personal space, avoiding both fights over the thermostat in the house, and lowering your energy bills too. It’s easy to take with you when you’re heading somewhere without AC (say, an old cottage or rental), and discreet enough to blend in with your decor at home.

This summer is going to be a scorcher, so instead of investing in a significantly more expensive and even bigger AC unit, give the Chill200 and all its wonderful attributes a shot.
