Unlike air conditioners which blow ice-cold air into the room, air coolers use evaporative cooling technology. Coolers have a much higher efficiency and cheaper electricity bills than ACs. They are especially suited to hot and dry climates.
Evaporative cooling is the process of absorbing and dissipating heat through water vapor, similar to sweating in humans. This is accomplished by a pump that moves water over a cooling pad which is kept damp. As the water evaporates, it extracts and releases heat into the surrounding air, which is then blown out by a fan. This cools the air in the room and creates a pleasant environment.
Air coolers can be portable or stationary depending on your preference. They are easy to install and have a compact design. They are a great alternative to ducting air conditioners in areas with a warm and dry climate. They can be used in large rooms, garages, workshops and outdoor areas. Some models come with an ice tray and can be cooled using ice cubes for maximum effect.
The best air cooler have high-efficiency cooling fans with a longer air throw distance. This enables them to cool a larger area and have a lower operating noise. Some coolers come with a remote control to help you change settings and operate the unit without getting up from your seat. They are also easy to maintain and clean. Coolers should be cleaned frequently to prevent mold and bacteria from growing inside the unit. The pads, reservoir, filter, and pump should be cleaned at least once a month, or more often in hot climates. Coolers should be wiped down regularly with soap and water, or diluted vinegar and water according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
A cooling system that produces negative ions is a great feature to have as it can help clear dust and pollen from the air. This can boost your mood and concentration as well as keep you healthy. MYLEK air coolers use a special ioniser that releases refreshing ions into the atmosphere.
When looking for an air cooler it is important to check the water tank capacity and fan speed as these are key factors that affect cooling. You should also check if it has a dust filter as this helps to keep the air clean. Lastly, you should look at the noise levels of the unit as this can disturb your work or sleep.
Orient Electric offers a wide range of coolers that are available in different capacities and designs. They are equipped with honeycomb cooling pads which can absorb more water and provide better cooling than traditional wool wood or aspen pads. Some of the models feature Orient’s DenseNest honeycomb technology which provides 45 percent more water reduction for enhanced cooling performance. This is complemented by the even water distribution system which results in faster and efficient cooling. Orient also has energy-efficient air coolers that use less power to produce the same amount of cooling as conventional air coolers.
