Anio is the first air conditioner concept based on the magnetocaloric effect. It is used for both cooling or heating by shifting magnetic field strains without using cooling agents. The result is an almost silent air conditioner. Better yet, it uses 50% less energy than conventional air conditioners. Environmentally friendly and 30% smaller than common air conditions, it’s the cleanest, most compact solution for comfort yet!
