Why Kapsul, Why? What is it all for??
Updated: Oct 29, 2018
Kapsul began with two engineers and one designer working together to make a better window air conditioner.
Why a window air conditioner?
Two reasons really: 1. Kurt Swanson loves to nerd out over the science of heat transfer and 2. They observed that typical window air conditioners are a real pain in the rear.
Our trio of tinkerers (Try saying that three times fast) believed that there had to be a better way.
What they came up with was the Kapsul W5: a 5,000 BTU room air conditioner that was slimmer, quieter, easier and smarter than any other on the market.
In other words, an AC game-changer.
They put their idea out there in the world and people responded. They got excited. They invested money to make it happen because they had never seen anything like it and they really wanted this air conditioner.
From this success, Kapsul’s mission was born: to create home climate products that revolutionize their product category!
REVOLUTIONIZE - yeah… that’s a pretty heady word with an odor of shallow marketing.
So what do we really mean by that?
We mean that our focus is on creating products that improve the user experience in a way that has never been done before. It’s all about you. What are the features and qualities and performance metrics that are going to add significant value to your experience? Those are what we’re after.
Right now, we’re focused on our first product- the W5 - which will make its public debut next spring! - but we’re planning to create other climate products for your home as well.
We’re aiming for all of our products to work together. That way we can build a web of super-intuitive machines that will coordinate air comfort and quality for whole house domination!! Mwhahahahahahahahaha...
Like I said... nerds.
But really, we’d just like you to feel more comfortable and happy in your home.
