  • Do mosquitos like Evening Breeze?
    Mosquitos prefer to stay away from your Evening Breeze because they don’t like to reside in the coolest part of your room and are even more sensitive to draft. To be completely safe, we recommend using a mosquito net.

  • What makes Evening Breeze so energy effective?
    Evening Breeze energizes what needs to be energized. Because we don’t cool the entire room including the walls, floor and furniture, it uses much less energy. Furthermore, in order for you to sleep at , let’s say, 21 degrees, your current air-conditioner needs to release air at a much lower temperature to ensure the room average is at the desired level..
  • What is the saving potential compared to inverter air conditioning?
    This depends on the energy use of your current air conditioning, typically starting at 1.000 all the way up to 2.000 Watts. This leads to a saving potential of 60 to 80%
  • Can I run the system on alternative power sources, like solar?
    Because your Evening Breeze takes so little energy, it is very feasible to run of solar, please bear in mind that you’ll need to store your solar power in a battery for the night.
