The new, ultra-efficient, portable air-conditioner is easy to install and can be controlled from your mobile too
Air conditioners are a necessity in sweltering summers, however, the bulky size of AC and complex installation can be a real pain. But with the Noria, those painful are over now.
Noria claims to be the “first window air conditioner designed entirely with you in mind.”
The newly-launched air conditioner Noria, introduced by a Philadelphia-based company, is an ultra-efficient, compact air conditioner. From beautiful design to easy installation to remote connectivity and schedule creation, Noria makes living with a window air conditioner a pain-free experience.
Standing at less than 6″ tall, Noria is easy to mount and can be stowed away without occupying too much space. This significant reduction in size means that the view outside is no longer obstructed.
The Noria Air Conditioner uses a highly-engineered, patent-pending design that allows it to fit the cooling hardware into such a compact form factor.
Noria also boasts a fresh air mode that will bring cool, outside air on cooler nights — something not even central air is capable of doing.
Noria is much easier to install into windows than conventional air conditioners. Noria comes with a special window frame adapter to ensure a safe and easy installation. The adapter is installed first to create a secure, sealed socket into which Noria slides and locks in place.
Noria is built around a single knob that controls the thing you want to change temperature.
The best part is you can control Noria via Bluetooth and create energy-saving schedules directly from your smartphone (both iPhone and Android). And with its sleek, minimalist design, your AC will no longer obstruct your view.
The patent-pending engineering required state-of-the-art CFD simulation and years of optimization to get into the final form factor Noria offers, trimming the total size by 40%. The highly engineered fans and ventilation system are quiet and efficient. Unlike other window air conditioners, Noria directs the cool air up towards the ceiling, creating a convective cycle that prevents cold and hot spots in the room. At 5,000 BTU/hr, Noria can cool a 10’x16′ room, or two Noria units can cool a room up to 330 sq ft.
This smart and cool AC is a product by Likuma Labs, an established product development firm that has experience bringing projects from the drawing board to the production line in various industries including consumer products, medical devices, and industrial automation.
Noria’s Kickstarter campaign is currently under way, where it’s already received over $$440,000 in funding with 29 days to go. Early bird packages are gone, but you can get the Noria for $300. It’ll cost $400 at retail.
