    TLDR: The EvaChill EV-500 Personal Air Conditioner cools, humidifies, and purifies your room in a hurry, all without incurring one of those huge summer utility bills.

    If last year’s summer work from home routine did a real number on your utility bill, you weren’t alone. In addition to the containment being rough on everybody’s psyches, it put a serious hit on our bank accounts as well. Average electrical usage was up more than 9 percent between April and August 2020 compared to 2019, an average increase of about $85 over what residents paid the year before.

    Since there’s a decent chance many will be in the same situation for summer 2021, it might be time to start seriously looking at some alternatives to staying cool without firing up the AC across the whole house. 

    The EvaChill Personal Air Conditioner is a solid answer to that problem, a tiny unit capable of producing enough big cool to help make your home office feel a whole lot more comfortable in the teeth of summer heat. Right now, it’s on sale at just $99, over 20 percent off its regular price, from TNW Deals.

    The look of the EvaChill is sleek and minimalist, and at just over 8 inches square, this 2019 Red Dot Design Award winner can definitely fit in on just about any desktop. 

    But you aren’t buying it for its looks, so the EvaChill is also packing enough cool and comfortable atmosphere to make it a formidable air conditioner, humidifier and purifier all in one to quickly circulate air and lower the temperature in any room.

    Ultra-portable and leak-proof, users fill the EvaChill’s water tank, then let the cartridge made from rock-solid volcanic lava basalt start doing its thing. With its expanded area for water evaporation, the cartridge fills the cooling pads quickly as the air jets push that evaporated water back into the surrounding air. In as little as 10 minutes, the unit covers a lot of ground, dropping the air temperatures as much as 59 degrees over an area of up to 45 sq. ft.

    Since the filter is made of inorganic fibers, it also doesn’t generate the mold or bacteria found in other personal air conditioners, which not only moistens the air, but purifies it as well as it filters dust particles and stops bacterial growth in its tracks.

    You can also set the EvaChill to run for up to nine hours, ensuring you’ll be able to sleep through the night in comfort — and all without clicking on central AC.

    Regularly $128, the EvaChill EV-500 Personal Air Conditioner is now available at 22 percent off, down to just $99
