What is Air Cooler?

As the name suggests Air Coolers cool the air using evaporative cooling, Air Coolers consists of a fan, cooling pads and pump. Air coolers circulate the hot air from surrounding through the water cooled pads and thus reduce the temperature of air significantly.

Types of Air Coolers

Broadly discussing there are two different kinds of Air Coolers, Desert Cooler and Room Cooler.

1.  Desert Coolers

As the name suggests Desert air coolers are suitable for dry areas. They are designed for cooling large rooms, halls etc. There water capacity is around 40-70 ltrs. The desert cooler is usually fitted outside a window and takes in air from outside. The fan of desert coolers functions as an exhaust and provides better cooling.

2.  Room Coolers

Room coolers are designed for smaller areas and are less powerful than desert coolers. They are ideal for humid conditions. They have water capacity of 20-40 ltrs.  Room coolers are installed in the rooms, e.g. Tower coolers, personal Coolers.

Coolers are also categorized based on their function.

a)  Direct evaporative: Use latent heat of evaporation (Changes water to vapour), these are most widely used air coolers.

b)  Indirect evaporative: The use heat exchanger technology for cooling.

c)  Two-stage evaporative: First the air is pre-cooled by heat exchanger and then circulated through cooling pads. Commonly used to reduce humidity.

How to decide on features of Air Cooler

1.  Airflow and Size: Air coolers have different sizes and airflow ratings to suite particular requirements. You can decide on the size of air cooler by calculating CFM (cubic feet per minute) of the airflow needed.

CFM = Area of room in square feet * Ceiling height/2

2.  Water Tank capacity: It is very important feature to consider while buying an air cooler, since the cooler works on evaporation technology, water will be converted in to water vapours. Hence larger the water tanks, longer the cooling.

3.  Cooling pads: They are having direct impact on cooling as they absorb water and then air is circulated through cooling pads. Thicker cooling pads mean better cooling. There are two types Honeycomb (cellulose) and Aspen pads. Aspen pads are cheaper but less durable. However Honeycomb pads are more efficient due to their low maintenance. They are costlier than aspen pads but they are thicker and more durable.

4.  Design: Design is also an important aspect while buying air cooler. Select a design more suitable for your requirement such as compact, sleek etc.

5.  Electronic thermostats: Coolers with electronic thermostats can vary the fan speed, switch ON/OFF the pump and fan automatically.

6.  Coolers with Inverter support: Inverter air coolers can be very useful in case of power failure and consume upto 50% less energy than standard air cooler.

7.  Remote Control: Remote control function is like icing on a cake, you can control our cooler without any movement

8.  Water level controller and indicator: It is important to keep a check on the adequate amount of water in the cooler tank.

9.  Speed Control: It is an important feature as you may need different level of cooling at different times.

10.   Automatic shut of dampeners: Open when the fan starts and shuts when fan is off. 

11.   Timer: Some air coolers are also having feature of timer, so that you can sleep freely setting a timer.

12.   Ice Cube tray: Some coolers have feature of ice tray. Ice in the ice tray melts and mixes with the tank water and helps in cooling.

13.   Castors wheels: Coolers with castors make ease of access so that you can move your cooler freely.
