Hate getting into a stuffy car? You need to try acool

When your car is parked in the sun all day, the heat and humidity can easily build up inside. The acool car ventilator solves this problem with some neat design.

Hate getting into a stuffy car? You need to try acool
  • How do you keep a parked car cool? Use a windshield cover to reflect the sun, and keep the windows cracked open half an inch.
  • Does AC work when your car is parked? Yes, but not effectively. The system needs a rush of cool air to provide a cool breeze inside.
  • What is the best way to cool your car? Acool is a secure car ventilator that pumps hot air out and cool air in, powered by the baking sun.

In the hot summer sun, cars collect heat like a bucket collects rain. The metal bodywork absorbs warmth, while the windows allow sunshine to stream in. Even on the inside, dark vinyl coverings and faux leather soak up the heat.

Covering your windshield and leaving your windows cracked open is better than nothing. But if you’re tired of returning to an oven on wheels, you need to try acool.

This car ventilator slots into your back windows to syphon the cool air inwards and the warm air outwards. The system can be powered by the sun, and the design is completely secure.

How does a car ventilator work?

The acool car ventilators work much like the AC units that can be slotted into an open hung sash window. In this case, the ventilator fills the gap between the glass and the top of the door frame.

Enjoy a cool breeze with acool

From this position, each ventilator has free access to the air inside and outside the car. The acool system includes two units: one for pushing warm air out, and one for pulling cool air inwards. Four fans work efficiently to move the air, while an air filter ensures that no unwanted pollution is sucked inwards.

Acool can be powered by the sun

You can leave acool running in your parked car, with the supplied 50W solar panel (or any 12V input) providing the power. In just five minutes, the ventilators can replace all of the air in your car twice over.

Custom fit

You may have seen other products, such as vents, that are designed to fill the gap made by an open car window. Most are fairly flimsy and easy to remove — making them a real security risk.

Acool is made to measure

In contrast, acool ventilators are rock solid. The units are actually made to measure for each model of car. In addition, the design includes no outward-facing screws — so thieves won’t be able to disassemble the device.

Acool is easy to install yet secure

The acool system is so secure that you can safely keep it installed when you start driving.

“Acool is the first of its kind, addressing all the problems of current car ventilators. It is custom-made, secure and solar powered by design, using cross ventilation technology to reduce substantially your exposure to the adverse health effects of high temperature and pollutants in parked cars.” — Syntron Inc on Kickstarter

One-touch control with acool

There are many reasons to like acool. This system keeps your car cool without burning gas, and can remove odors. It’s also really easy to fit, yet very secure.

Not easy being cool

While these made-to-measure ventilators are affordable, we wonder how quickly they can be made. Only time will tell!
