Looking for a way to keep cool and comfortable year round? Look no further than the Quilo 3in1 Tower Fan with Evaporative Air Cooler and Humidifier. That’s right, the Quilo gives you year-round comfort with three appliances packed into one, and the result is a compact, energy-saving, air cooling system that is truly made for any weather.

Seattle is well known for its rain and grey weather, but what most people don’t know is that late spring all the way through fall is actually quite gorgeous here in the PNW. If you can make it past the rainy season {which typically takes place during the loooong winter as well as early spring}, we like to say that you have “earned” a Quilo 3in1 Evaporative Air Cooler.

However, the people that design our houses seem to think that it’s damp and rainy year-round here. We’re talking houses built facing the sun with no natural growths to block it to keep you cool, no air conditioning units available at time of sale {and some lots that can’t accommodate a unit at all}, no built-in ceiling fans {or the structure required for adding them in after move-in} and a complete lack of thought into the airflow of the house.

Our second summer into owning our house I remember suffering through yet another hot summer while melting in our home. I had plug-in fans littered about in every room, but nothing seemed to help. To make matters worse, I was also caring for a newborn and didn’t get to escape to work anymore for a reprieve from the heat.

It was then that I researched air conditioning units and realized just how expensive they are and how difficult they are to add after the fact to existing homes. So, then I looked into ceiling mounted fans and ran into similar roadblocks.

Two years later it was another long, hot summer and this time I was pregnant with my 2nd child. My search for keeping cool was re-ignited, and I began to look for a window unit or literally *anything* that could cool me off.

If I had found the Quilo 3in1 Tower Fan with Evaporative Cooler and Humidifier back then, I would have been crying in excitement. If I then had found out that it was only $159? I would have bought multiple.

What makes the Quilo 3in1 fan so amazing?

To start with, Quilo is three appliances packed into one so it’s so much more than just another fan. Not only does it help keep air cooler, it also humidifies the air during the long and cold winter, and functions as a wet air cooler – similar to an air conditioner. This means that it doesn’t need to be stored most of the year as it can actually be used year-round. It can help make your indoor environment better in any season.

The Power of Evaporative Cooling

When you add water in the tank, Quilo 3in1 Evaporative Air Cooler reduces the temperature of incoming warm air. It does this by creating a refreshing cool breeze channeling air through a moist honeycomb cooling pad. Whereas a fan simply recirculates warm air, the Quilo can rapidly reduce the temperature through this process of evaporation with naturally cool air.

Imagine that amazing comfortable cool breeze you feel when standing near a lake or sea. It’s like that only you get to experience it right in your living room. It’s just as simple as filling this little drawer with water and letting it work its magic.

Green Air Conditioning

For an even cooler experience, pack ice into the ice tray and the water flowing through the unit will be extra frigid. This feature is what will make the Quilo my best friend in the summer. Imagine having an air conditioner that is energy-saving, compact, and requires absolutely no refrigerant or gases to run. Yes, it’s true. Just fill this up with ice and watch the temperature drop.

Even better: the Quilo uses only a fraction of the electricity of an air conditioning unit. In fact, it consumes as little electricity as a light bulb or an iPad, which means you will actually use it year-round for seasonal comfort without having to take out a line of credit to pay for it.

Even though it’s extremely cost effective to run, it still cools or humidifies up to 160 sq. ft. And, unlike other air conditioning units, it’s super portable just like a normal fan. Whereas window mounted air coonditioning units are difficult to remove and definitely not portable, the Quilo is versatile and allows you to take it from room to room with ease.

Weighing in at less than our actual tower fan and sporting some built-in handles, even my 7 year old can easily manage to move it around the house. If I preferred, I could also utilize the built-in wheels that allow you to roll it around wherever you want.

Other features to swoon over:

  • Turbo mode to maximize fanning power and an optional oscillation to keep entire rooms comfortable.
  • Sleep or Quiet mode that cools or humidifies with indiscernible noise intrusion. The Quilo can operate at a whisper-quiet sound level all while lowering the temperature by up to 10 to 15 degrees Fahrenheit, making it perfect for sleep or quiet settings.
  • Programmable timer switches the unit off in increments of 30 minutes, up to 7.5 hours so you can customize it to your schedule.
