A New Way to Keep Your Home Cool and Save $$$

Having fun in the summer sun? Us too, but the air conditioning bill over the summer months? Not so fun. Don’t you wish you could be comfortable in the heat without spending gobs of money on cooling down your space? Well (drum roll, please), now you can be with the new Tado cooling device!

Designed in Germany, Tado came about when the creators found that 1/3 of the energy consumed around the world is used for heating and cooling buildings. That’s a lot of wasted energy.

Thanks to the super smarty-pants app and in-home device, not only does Tado turn your unit off when you leave your home, but it also kicks it on to start pre-cooling as you approach your home. The Bluetooth connected app even adjusts the air conditioning unit as you move from room-to-room so you’re not wasting energy. But our all-time favorite feature is that it can control the humidity level in your apartment. See ya later, warped wall art. Goodbye, bad hair days. Sayonara, sleepless nights.

The easy-to-install device will cost $149 when it goes to market, or you can make a pledge on Kickstarter and get yours for $99. The purchase gets you the app and the device, which is compatible with in-window, wall hanging, central AC or portable AC units. So it doesn’t matter if you live in a mansion or a shoebox apartment. Tado does not discriminate.
