The weather in Germany is getting hotter and hotter.
A mobile air conditioning system such as that from Aldi can help.
But what about the efficiency of these devices?
Frankfurt / Munich - The weather in Germany is now midsummer to almost tropical.
In many places, the temperatures are well above 30 degrees.
In the course of this, air conditioning of closed rooms often offers a welcome cooling.
For a few days now, discounters such as Aldi Nord and Süd have also offered air conditioning systems that appear inexpensive and in this case are supposed to be available by July 3rd at the latest.
The trading company offers the mobile air conditioning unit ChillFlex Pro from AEG for 499 euros in the online shop, instead of the previous recommended retail price of allegedly 649 euros.
Mobile cooling device at Aldi and Co .: If in doubt, it is better to spend a little more money
explains, the online giant Amazon had apparently reacted to the Aldi offer and meanwhile reduced the same product to the same price.
However, the portal also explains that there could be cheaper bargains elsewhere that are still lower in price.
An online shop from Switzerland (Galaxus) even has a competing product from another manufacturer on offer for just 429 euros.
In the report, after evaluating reviews, the thesis is expressed that users often perceive the Aldi refrigerator as too heavy (33 kilograms) and the volume as annoying.
For higher quality products, prices in the four-digit range would therefore be due - especially with regard to energy efficiency and noise level.
Not to be forgotten: Due to the steadily rising temperatures - also in the course of the threatening climate change - another electrical device can provide cooling with the fan.
Even if the temperatures currently seem unbearable for many people: The
points out that mobile air conditioning devices should be used with caution and can turn into cost traps.
For example, anyone who trusts that the new energy labels will help in estimating energy costs (which recently rose sharply, for a long time not), is mistaken.
Mobile air conditioning systems: It's all about efficiency - energy costs are the crux of the matter
As the comparison portal describes, air conditioning units are not affected by the recently introduced new energy label.
Most of the refreshment devices would be labeled with class A and therefore hardly distinguishable.
This was the result of an evaluation of product offers on the consumer
The size of the room that is to be cooled is essential for the energy consumption of an air conditioner.
A mobile air conditioning is only worthwhile with a manageable room size and if the installation of a fixed air conditioning is not possible for some reason.
Mobile air conditioners are sometimes cheap - but if they are used frequently, they can result in high electricity costs.
Incidentally, German households pay more for electricity than in any other EU country. A politician warns that it will soon be a "luxury good".
