Air-Conditioned, Solar-Powered Bed Keeps Sleep Cool and Energy Costs Low

Air-Conditioned, Solar-Powered Bed Keeps Sleep Cool and Energy Costs Low

It can be difficult to get a good night’s sleep when it’s too hot, yet finding the Goldilocks-style perfect temperature that will result in getting those precious ZZZs means you have to adjust the thermostat to cool the room to the ideal temperature, which can cause your carbon footprint and your energy bills to go through the roof.

But why change the temperature in your whole room – or, depending on your thermostat, your entire house – when you can sleep inside a climate-controlled, curtained-off box?

That’s the thinking behind the Solar AC Bed from Aries Global, dubbed “the world’s first AC bed,” designed to address the “twin problems of high energy consumption and inefficient cooling, which plague conventional household AC systems.”

The beds are contained surrounded by large, see-through curtains that are equipped with unique technology that harvests solar energy, and then uses that energy to cool a personalized cover around your bed.

The result, says the company, is a cooler sleeping space, lower energy bills and, ultimately, a greener, safer planet.

The unit can also be powered by a plug-in wall adapter, but when utilizing solar power it’s a completely self-sufficient way to stay cool during a hot summer night.

“The innovative design of the Solar AC bed ensures optimum sleep temperature and humidity,” declares Aries, predicting you’ll see a whopping 80 per cent reduction in AC power usage.

As a bonus, the transparent covering also serves as a shield to protect from mosquitoes, making the Solar AC Bed a uniquely ideal product for eco-tourism operations in areas where Malaria-carrying mosquitos are a problem and electricity may not be easy to come by. In addition, the beds are expected to be popular in areas such as the Middle East that are characterized by high temperatures and plenty of sunshine.

The units are also surprisingly affordable; the “luxury” edition will run about $975 Canadian, while the “normal” base model (which is somewhat flimsier but will still get the job done) sells for less than $500.

“It is eco-friendly, economical, easy to use solar system, which will manage light duty equipment in home,” explains the product’s inventor, naval architect Sohan Roy. “It is easy to assemble and dismantle bed frame. The main advantage is that bed frame can be attached to existing bed.”
