PAE 29 air cooler

Air cooling plus tower fan refreshment

With the design air cooler PAE 29 you enjoy the combination of a fresh fan breeze and natural evaporation cooling. The slim and elegant air cooler not only offers you an integrated water tank, but also the stylish look and performance of a tower fan. Whether in the office or at home – the PAE 29 adds a modern touch to every environment and provides for pleasant cooling.

The natural way to cool a room – completely without chemical coolants

Use the white and black PAE 29 to simply blow the summer heat out of the room and additionally enjoy cooling refreshment on your skin by natural evaporation cooling provided by the wet filter principle. With its 4-litre water tank, an air volume of 100 m³ per hour as well as a humidification performance of 0.33 litres per hour, the design air cooler supplies pleasant cooling for more than 12 hours with only one water tank filling.

Tip for refreshment: The cooling effect can be further increased by means of the two ice packs supplied, which you just have to add to the water tank.

Furthermore, the comfort air cooler comes equipped with a 3-stage propeller fan, making it possible to use the device as refreshing tower fan – if required, also with an on-demand air cooling function. The automatic oscillation function which allows the upper housing part to swivel by 90° ensures an even distribution of fresh air in the whole room. You can additionally adjust the horizontal flaps manually to align the height of the air current so as to match your individual needs.

Comfort functions and modern tower design

Apart from air cooling, ventilation and humidification, the PAE 29 offers you an additional refreshing natural wind mode, an especially pleasant night mode, a 9-hour timer and an air filter for animal hair, fluff and dust, which is integrated into the rear side of the device. All settings and functions can be carried out either on the LED control panel with its intuitive design or comfortably and easily via remote control.

Humidifier preventing dry heated air and the multiplication of viruses

As an efficient humidifier, the PAE 29 provides for a feel-good climate in the cold season. The room air, which is often too dry during the heating period is optimally humidified, preventing the mucous membranes of your nose, mouth and throat from being dried out as quickly. Moreover, the distribution of viruses and bacteria in the room air is reduced at a humidity level of 50 %. This helps you to substantially minimize the risk of catching a cold or a viral disease of the respiratory tract!

Increasing the humidity level to 50 % reduces the risk of transmission of viruses

Medical specialists have evaluated research findings relating to the resistance of viruses (e.g. SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV or SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19), influenza) to air humidity. These findings have revealed that the humidity level has a crucial impact on the infectivity of germ droplets. Dry room air with a relative humidity content of less than 40 % lets tiny droplets infected with influenza or cold viruses dry up. This preserves pathogens so that they remain infectious for a very long time. In the optimum relative humidity range between 40 and 60 % aerosols only shrink so far that the salt concentration in the aerosol core increases, causing the germs and microorganisms contained to be killed. This minimizes the risk of an infection with influenza and cold viruses.

Medical specialists emphasize that we are able to reduce the risk of infection by increasing the humidity level in buildings. In this way, increasing the humidity level to approx. 50 % by humidification will reduce the risk of transmission. Moreover, the humidified air improves the body's defence situation by more efficient cleaning of the air passages and an improved immune defence. In modern buildings with a watertight building envelope, central heating and ventilation systems, these limit values can often not be complied with in everyday life without active humidification. This is where devices with a humidification function come in to provide assistance.

Comfort functions that you will enjoy

Irrespective of whether you want to utilize the 3-in-1 air cooler PAE 29 as a natural air cooler, as a pedestal fan with strong wind power, or as an evaporation humidifier in order to optimally humidify too dry room air: the elegant design air cooler convinces with useful comfort functions in every operating mode, providing for maximum well-being!

Including two ice packs for even more freshness

The colder the water, the greater the cooling capacity. Placing the two ice packs included in the scope of delivery into the water tank will further increase the cooling capacity. This additional boost of freshness can also be achieved with ice cubes. The clearly visible filling level indicator shows you at a glance whether the 4-litre tank still contains enough water. An empty water tank is indicated by an acoustic signal.

Air filter for animal hair, dust and fluff in the room air

The air filter integrated into the rear of the device absorbs animal hair, fluff and dust from the room air, Allowing allergy sufferers and people with a sensitive respiratory tract to breathe easily and freely. The easily removable filter can be cleaned quickly by wiping or rinsing it.

Timer function

The 9-hour timer of the PAE 29 makes it possible for you to switch off the device after a pre-programmed number of hours. In this way you ensure that, for example in the office, the air cooler will switch off automatically when office hours are over.

Night mode

To make sure that you can enjoy a restful sleep in hot summer nights, the air cooler features a night mode with a reduced fan performance. The pleasant cool air makes you drop off to sleep softly and your body will relax from the strains of the day. 

Tip: Additionally utilize the timer function to automatically switch off the device during the night.

Natural cooling principle

In contrast to air conditioners, air coolers do not use any chemical refrigerants. The cooling effect is generated in a natural manner. Moreover, neither an exhaust air hose nor any elaborate installations are required.

A mobile air cooler works on the principle of natural evaporation cooling. As you probably know from your own experience, blowing on moist skin creates an instant feeling of refreshment as the evaporation process withdraws warmth. Air coolers work in the same way: in the interior of the air cooler there is a water-soaked filter mat using. The warm air is directed from the rear of the device through the wet filter mat and in passing is cooled down due to the evaporation effect. The now colder air is then blown back into the room by the fan.

Can be operated all year round – air cooler in the summer, humidifier in the winter

With the PAE 29 you can enjoy mobile feel-good climate throughout the year. We recommend using the slim air cooler in space-saving design throughout the year rather than parking it in a storeroom when the summer ends. In the spring and late summer its 3 fan stages can provide a fresh breeze so that you can enjoy the cooling effect of the cold evaporation.

In autumn and winter the device is furthermore well-suited as an effective humidifier, in order to create a more pleasant room climate. Since dry heated air can irritate the respiratory tract, dry out the skin and cause red eyes. Moreover, the multiplication of viruses within the room air is reduced at a humidity level of 50%. By using a humidifier you provide for a sufficient humidity level and in this way can improve your own well-being in sticky, overheated rooms as well as prevent colds and virus infections.

With the 3-in-1 air cooler PAE 29 you benefit from pleasant air cooling, refreshing ventilation and agreeable humidification. For a perfect climate throughout the year!


Continuous fresh water supply to ensure a healthy air quality.

To automatically keep the water storage tank as clean as on the first day, we recommend using a SecoSan-Stick which keeps the water permanently clean, clear and free from germs or unpleasant odours. The unique feature of SecoSan is its antimicrobial surface with mobile silver ions, which inhibit bacteria and germs upon contact and thus prevent their reproduction. The entirely self-dosing SecoSan ion reservoir keeps the water demonstrably free from germs. The stick thus guarantees clean water for up to 6 months even if the water is changed or consumed daily.

Thermohygrometer BZ20M with air cooler PAE 29

Using air coolers as humidifiers during the wintertime

Air coolers are most efficient in rooms filled with dry air. Just like humidifiers these devices operate based on the evaporation principle, i.e. they directly supply the air with cool moisture. This means that for process-related reasons the humidity level in the room is increased perceptibly. During the winter this increase of humidity is beneficial to the mucous membranes. As a result you might be able to avoid catching a cold that is largely caused by the dry heated air. The practical and optically attractive thermohygrometer BZ20M in cross-needle design shows you at a glance when the humidity level is in the optimum range.
