Our house is the type that is either roasting hot or freezing cold and finding a happy medium is a nightmare!
So, can you imagine how excited I was receiving this PR package in the post!?
I have reviewed some Russell Hobbs products before, including their wonderful Beauty Cooling mini fridge and their modern styled fans fit for your home office, both of which are dreamy products you have to try this summer.
The new air conditioning unit comes quite bulky but I was over the moon to receive it and give it a go.
Firstly, I want to point out that the Russell Hobbs Air Conditioner is quite daunting to set up but it couldn’t be anymore simple to use.
Here is what I thought once I set up the product in my son’s room, the hottest bedroom in England (probably a slight exaggeration but it’s always SO hot)!

I think what is worth mentioning is that, if you are a single parent and don’t have anybody around to help you if you want it set up upstairs then don’t try moving this yourself!
This unit is EXTREMELY heavy, so I set it up in my kitchen and then waited for a friend to help me get it upstairs.
The set up couldn’t be more simple.
Once you attach the nozzle and hose to the back of the unit where instructed and work out what the buttons are to navigate it, you’re half way there.
As I said earlier, my son’s room get’s sunlight pretty much all day so it is always sweltering, so he definitely got the first run of it (I will be trying this out in my room too for sure).
Although you are instructed to use the window attachment to avoid any unnecessary hot air entering the room, I tried using the unit without and it honestly blew me away (pardon the pun).
Last night me and my son Tyler laughed because he shouted me from his bedroom and said: “Mum my room is freezing I can’t believe it! I think I need my onesie on!”
I went to give him a hug and he was so cool, so it’s safe to say it works a treat!
If you are like me and don’t have a spare £359.99 lying around for this quite expensive purchase, then maybe this isn’t for you.
But wow if you can afford to pick one up, DO IT!
It has really settled my son at night with no moaning of him being too hot and works within minutes.
A worthy purchase for a unit which could potentially last years for the UK’s unpredictable heat we can sometimes be blessed with.
You can pick one up here on the Russell Hobbs website or on Amazon who currently have one in stock a little cheaper here.
