Close Comfort is a Perth and Singapore based start-up company founded in 2007. 

For the first 6 years, Professor James Trevelyan worked with his students at The University of Western Australia, gradually developing low lower localized air conditioning technology.  In 2013, he conducted tests in Pakistan, arriving in the hottest part of summer with indoor temperatures around 41°C, several degrees warmer than expected.  However, the results exceeded expectations.  In 2014 a trial batch of 20 AC units were manufactured for tests with users in Pakistan. The results were good enough to justify an improved model with less power consumption which went on the market in 2016.

In 2017 James and his team developed a new PC9 model with further improvements which is now on sale in several countries.  Further research and development is continuing on development of different kinds of bed tents, cooling performance improvement and manufacturing cost reduction.
