Portable evaporative Air Coolers are used in most Indian homes during the summer months. They are more economical to run than air conditioners and are capable of delivering high level cooling for large bedrooms and living areas. The Air Cooler uses water vapor to lower the temperature inside an ambient space. Thus, an air cooler is also eco-friendlier than an air-conditioning unit. But there are some things which you should keep in mind while getting an air cooler for your home for getting an effective cooling solution for summers.
Design and Portability
If you want to use the air cooler as a fixed unit, you should consider an outdoor air cooler as it will help save space inside the house. On the other hand, if you are looking for a portable air cooler which can be moved within the house, look for a unit which has a compact, upright design and sturdy wheels. Going with an international air cooler brand can solve the dilemma of design and quality for you. For example: high-quality air coolers from Honeywell are made from durable plastic and metal components which make them perfect for Indian homes.
The energy efficiency of air coolers makes them the preferred choice of Indian households. So, do check the power consumption figures for the air cooler units before buying one. If you are getting an air cooler for a large coverage area, expect the energy use to rise in proportion with the coverage area.
Air coolers with ice tray allow you to cool a room or area faster than a regular air cooler. This feature can be useful if you are living in a city like Delhi where summer temperatures can exceed 45 degree Celsius.
Compatibility with Inverters
Another thing that you should check with the dealer is the compatibility of the air cooler with inverters. Since power cuts are quite frequent during the summer months, it is important that the air cooler can run on an inverter’s battery power. Older air coolers were too energy intensive and could not be run on battery power for more than 10 to 20 minutes. But nowadays, products like Honeywell air coolers can provide uninterrupted cooling for a few hours depending on your inverter’s battery capacity.
Air coolers require periodic maintenance and one of the most commonly replaced parts of an air cooler is the cooling media. A good air cooler has cooling media which can last for a long time. For example, Honeywell air coolers come with a unique honeycomb design cooling media which can retain more water and provides better cooling than locally built cooling panels. The cooling media is readily available from Honeywell vendors online and offline. Moreover, the second part which generally requires maintenance is the water pump. Again, high-quality air coolers come with 100 percent copper motors to ensure long lasting performance.
