The cost of the air conditioner will depend on the supply and demand of the product within the area as well as the costs it takes to produce the air conditioner itself.
There are also many issues that we have found within our research, for example the interest in our product.
Even though a portable air conditioner would benefit the citizens of India greatly, the interest in owning one is not as strong. In knowing this, we are prepared for ways to make the air conditioner appealing (such as small size) to our demographic as well as convenient for them.
