The worst part about the hot summer days is trying to get to sleep at night. I don’t mind being a little warmer during the day (and thus not having to blast the A/C all the time), but when I climb into bed, I like to be nice and cool. A fan in the window does the trick on some nights, but others it is still too hot and muggy outside. This Canopi system is supposed to be a solution for this very problem.
The Canopi takes air from under your bed, cools it (via a wall-mounted air conditioner) and gently distributes the air over your bed. Since you’re only trying to keep a small area cooled, you shouldn’t need to use nearly as much power as you would by turning down the thermostat. The only downfall is that the unit costs over $4,500. If you’re looking to save money, this isn’t a quick way to do it. I’m sure you’d eventually start making back your investment, but you’ll take a long time to break even.
