People behind the EcoBreeze 2 window fan have come up with the idea for the low-energy portable model that can effectively maintain a well-ventilated and pleasantly cool atmosphere in a room of your house and help you save on the bill at the same time.

What is so Special About EcoBreeze 2?

Nature’s Cooling Solutions company has started a campaign on Kickstarter to raise the fundings for their EcoBreeze 2 window fan project in order to create an inexpensive solution for keeping your room cool and reduce your expenses on the electricity bill at the same time. While the usual window fans are designed to simply create the airflow in your room with a propeller, this device is capable of much more. The EcoBreeze 2 window fan is designed to provide the natural cool air inside your room filtering the contaminants with a washable or pollen MERV filter. It also locks the humidity out increasing the time that the room stays cool on a hot humid day. As for installation, it works both in vertical and horizontal positions. Due to expandable side panels, it can be set in almost any single, double-hung, and horizontal slide window frames.

Why Not Just Use Split AC?

Surely, many air cons have built-in air filters and a dehumidifying mode too. However, the EcoBreeze 2 is not designed to replace the AC, but to delay the time required for turning the cooling on. When the temperature outside your window is sufficiently cold, the fan draws the cold air in so that you didn't need to use the conditioner at all during that period. If the temperature inside or outside gets too hot, the fan will turn itself off, allowing the air conditioner to take over the cooling.

Looking at the Numbers

Although it may not sound like such a big deal at first, the economy can be dramatic because this window fan can boast a pretty low-energy unit - only 45W at low-speed and 80W at high settings.

Residential split air conditioners consume quite a lot of energy to maintain the cool temperature inside your room. Even in the fan mode, the average consumption of many ACs is still around 150W. Thus, by delaying the time of the AC kicking in for several hours a day, you can easily save up $100 and more every hot season.
