Window air conditioners have been around for over 60 years, providing much needed relief in the hot summer months. But it has always come at a cost of a terrible user experience. Window air conditioners have always been big, ugly, loud, and difficult to install – until now.
Noria ($300 via Kickstarter) was designed to address all the pain points of current window air conditioners. From beautiful design to easy installation to remote connectivity and schedule creation, Noria makes living with a window air conditioner a pain-free experience. The intuitive thermostat knob interface makes interaction simple. Smart features mean you can control Noria via bluetooth and make energy saving schedules from your iPhone or Android device. A low profile design allows you to keep the view from your window, and makes storage a breeze. The fresh air mode brings in outside air on those cool June and September nights – not even central air can offer that.
Noria is a 5,000 BTU/hour window air conditioner accommodating windows with opening widths from 21 inches and up. It is appropriate for rooms up to 160 square feet. Noria will be available in the Spring of 2017.
