Mobile air conditioning: the Convair Magicool

A more affordable way of cooling a room than a true air conditioner

It turns out that when most of us say we want an air conditioner for the home or office, we don't realise that a true air conditioning unit is a complex device which uses needs a hose venting to outside, costs many hundreds of pounds and can be equally expensive to run. If you were envisaging something a bit more portable, which is more like a fan, what you're actually after is an air cooler.There wasn't much to it: the air cooler itself, a perfectly adequate  the machine works best if it has an open door or window behind it, and another the other side of the room. This is so it can take air from outside, freshen it up, and force the old air in the room out of the other side. 

The filter requires just one thing: water. Quite a lot of water, some 13 litres, to be exact. You fill the tank up at the back, but a full tank will last for a long time. If the water runs out, it's not a problem, but the air cooler will just be acting as a fan. So make sure you have a bucket with a pouring lip, or at least a decent-sized jug! When I have the Convair Magicool upstarirs in our house, I can wheel it to the bathroom (it's very light when empty) and fill it with the shower attachment we have on our bath. When full, the unit is quite heavy though.

One final advantage which an air cooler has over a full-scale air conditioning unit is that it's relatively environmentally-friendly. The electricity used is low, and there are no refrigerants involved. This makes sense. manual in great condition get yourself a bargain
