The company says that the Mistbox can be installed on existing central air conditioners in five minutes with a screwdriver. The four mist bars are mounted on the intake grill using bespoke hooks or zip ties, while the control unit has a special mounting bracket. Water is brought in from the domestic supply using an included 30-ft (9-m) hose and adapter set. There's also a special water filtration system to prevent scaling and corrosion and is claimed to increase the life of both the Mistbox and the air conditioner. The company says that the technology is install-and-forget with only an annual water filter change.
