Ya canna change the laws o physics capt'n

Two fan heaters would be consuming a minimum of 4,000 watts, the "Instachill" would be consuming about 60 watts, just does not add up.
By the way, the average lightbulb these days is 10 watts (LED) I don't think you can even buy the 100 watt ones anymore.
When will our government stop these people from telling porkies in their adds?
These things are not much better than a fan, but 40 times more expensive.
DON'T BUY ONE.......trust me, you will be happier with a fan. Show details

Terrible product

Instachill is not worth the price they charge for it. Looks great, very noisy and no chance getting to sleep with it on in the bedroom. Does it keep a room cool you ask? Hell no Does not blow cold air at all, even pouring in ice cold water or even soaking the chill pads in cold water for a hour. Don't waste your money on this scam product. Show details

False advertising - does not cool

We are all familiar with evaporative aircons. Heat is transferred from the air to water. Hot air is exhausted outside and cool air is fanned through the house.

This unit does not do that - Just a noisy overpriced fan effective at a distance of 30cm.

Of course this is false advertising. This is how TV Shop does business. Show details

No Good if you live in Australia!

I purchased the extra large & large. 28C late afternoon, cannot do the job. If you live in Australia, save your money. Equipment quality also very poor! I live in NSW. Show details

Don’t waste your money - no refund

Did not cool down at all in a 3x3 room. What is more frustrating paid $399 and was told no refund unless the unit was faulty. Well it is faulty as does not do what is advertised.  Show details

Works a charm. Love it!

Bought the smaller version of Instachill a couple of years ago and cannot for the life of me understand all the negative reviews. I run it with a fan and it works a charm. Living in Sydney there can some days that are quite humid, but my unit copes very well on those uncomfortable days. Always remember when running an air cooler like Instachill you must put it near an open door or window, otherwise humidity will build up in the room. Only down side is that it is too noisy to have on whilst sleeping.  Show details ·  1

I should have bought a $10 fan at Bunnings

What a waste of money, It did nothing to cool down our guest room. My Mum couldn’t sleep because it was so noisy. I was later told that the reason why the sheets on her bed stank and were orange was due to her sweating all night. I rang the dodgy company that hoodwinked me. They told me that I should have prepared, and had 10 litres of water stored in the fridge ready to pour into the fan! Seriously, I need to stop drinking wine at 3 in the morning. NEVER again !  Show details

Disappointed

Purchased in Dec 2019 from the TV Shop. Advertised as an air condition. What a joke. Its the most expensive fan I have ever bought. Instead of spending $900 I should have spent $29 would have had the same result without the noise. I will never buy anything from the TV Shop again.
It arrived upside down in the box, a part was loose and floating around inside. Contemplating takung it to the dump. Show details

waste of money

The machine is way overrated, Just turns the room into a sweat shop. And as for the noise well it's ridiculously loud. And trying to return the thing is a nightmare. You can buy an $89 product from Bunnings that does the same thing and heaps quieter. Don't waste your money buying an instachill. Show details

Waste of money

It doesn't chill a thing! It is just a big noise, very noise fan that doesn't even swing side to side as simples $40,00 regular fan does... terrible! What a waste of hard work money... I'll try to return tomorrow to the store I purchased. Fingers crossed! Show details

Hi Charlie, The Instachill 28EX works best in a well ventilated area so you get fresh air all the time.

Kind regards

All of these units are utter rubbish you are better off buying a fan and saving money. They should be removed from the market. The marketing is dubious at best.
