Cool Down With the Close Comfort Cool Focus

We recently reviewed the Cool Focus, and we can understand how this would work for many. It is not an air conditioner that can cool your entire room. It cools you down within a cooling zone. Watch our “I Try and I Share” video to understand what we mean.
