InstaFrost is not an Air conditioner as you were made to believe. It does not even come close to being an ‘Air Cooler’. The advertising and branding of this product is deceptive.
It cannot be an A/C unit if it is self-contained. A/C units are heat pumps — they remove heat from the air and transport the heat to another location, i.e. usually out of the space that you want to cool (think of a refrigerator moving heat from inside the closed space to the outside of it).
Instafrost is not an AC but a swamp cooler. It only humidify the air surrounding your feet, and can not work as an air cooler or regular fan.
It’s an evaporative cooler. It works with an ice tray which you have to fill with water, place in a refrigerator, before putting it inside the ‘InstaFrost’ This is what it uses to blow cool air. Unfortunately, this is not mentioned in the Ads online.
Is This Product Worth Your Money?
Apart from the fact that Instafrost is wrongly called an Air Conditioner, below are other reasons why we can’t recommend this product.
It is been sold for extremely high prices. buyinstafrost.com is offering this ‘portable Air cooler unit’ for almost $90 whereas this exact compact swamp cooler can be gotten for far cheaper prices online.
On Amazon you can get similar ‘portable ac’ for 20$-50$ and save yourself more money and time.
No Customer Support
buyinstafrost.com provides customer service phone number, but when you try calling the number you would be put on Hold for a long time. All efforts to reach the customer service personnel was futile and frustrating. This does not speak well of the company’s image.
On the Contact Us page, The given address is 105 Serra Way #264,Milpitas, CA 95035. From our findings, it is the address of a company called Modern Life Trend. Damn! This is another red flag on its own. Modern Life Trend is one of the aggressive marketing companies online that keeps selling not too cool products, like this Cosmic Scope.
What this company does is buy products for cheaper rates in China, then invest in social media advertising, SE0 advertising, copy writing and all the likes, to make the products look real or legit to buyers. This is why when you search for Instafrost reviews or Instafrost ac reviews you’d see tons of reviews from blogs endorsing the product.
But one thing stands out…..the contents are all similar. All hog-wash, make believe reviews. Unfortunately, you would get tempted to buy this product. Don’t beat yourself! Who wouldn’t? The reviews look real, moreover they’re from popular websites. What a shame! Sponsored reviews do the most these days.
We have reviewed similar product before, Blaux Portable AC, Polaire, Williston Force. Either called air conditioner or air cooler or portable AC, they all work the same way. And from these reviews, you’d see that the product was far from satisfactory. It didn’t meet the expectations of customers.
Fake Customer Reviews
During our investigation, we realized the positive reviews online, both that of Youtube and Blogs, are all fake. This is because when you order for the product, the wait time is 30 days. How come the reviewers have gotten theirs when this Ac is not yet up to 30 days online? We realized these reviewers are just affiliate marketers who get paid commission for any sale they make. So they are reviewing the product without even seeing it for starters.
Also, the reviews on buyinstafrost.com are unverifiable. They shouldn’t prompt you to make an order.
Instafrost Customer Complaints
As of the time this review was written there are no genuine customer reviews online. This is because majority of those who ordered the Instafrost Air Cooler have not received theirs yet. The product delivery time is between two to four weeks.
