British homes are generally designed to keep heat in but with rising temperatures a lot more of us are thinking about ways to keep cool indoors in the summer. We take air conditioning for granted in shops, offices and, increasingly, cars, but most would be put off by the cost and disruption of installing a permanent system at home. The alternative is to plug in and stay cool with a portable unit.

Described in a recent Which? survey as ‘head and shoulders above the competition’, the Olimpia Splendid Issimo 8 HE is a compact and stylish unit that you can move from room to room to lower the temperature by several degrees. Of all the units tested by Which? the Issimo was the only one to genuinely achieve an energy efficiency rating Class A and it uses an environmentally-friendly refrigerant (R410A).

The Issimo 8 offers a choice of settings to adapt to different conditions: you can switch between cooling, dehumidification only and fan functions and you can easily set the desired temperature to ensure the ideal level of cooling is maintained.

Italian designed, the Issimo is a compact unit just 49cm high so it can fit neatly out of the way under a table. Air flows out of a grill, which can be directed up or down, at the top of the unit. The machine is vented out of a window and comes with a 1.5m hose and window gap accessory. With big castors and a pull-out handle, it is easy to move from room to room, it’s quiet in operation and has a night-time mode for cool and peaceful slumber.

The Issimo 8 is available online from air conditioning specialists Rapid Heatbusters: visit or call 0800 804 6161. The Olimpia Splendid Issimo 8 retails online for £636.00.
