Things to consider while using air coolers
- Air coolers work best when the back of the air cooler is placed near an open window. So that air from outside is drawn into the air cooler and fresh air circulates in the room.
- Make sure to close all other windows and doors and have an exhaust fan fitted on a ventilator, close to the ceiling. A room without ventilation will make the place warm, as the humid air is recycled.
- Exhaust fan removes the humidity from the room. This increases the comfort level.
- Make sure water in the tank is above minimum water level mark. If no water, then it won’t cool your room.
- Running the air cooler with too little water may cause pump failure. So, make sure there is enough water in the air cooler.
- Once in a month drain all the water in the air cooler. All the accumulated dust can be cleaned up.
- Try adding ice cubes in the water tank, it enhances the cooling performance. Some air coolers have a separate unit for putting ice cubes.
- Do not sleep directly in front of air cooler. Try to keep a distance of 7-8 feet.
- Avoid running air cooler using stale water. The room will smell foul.
- Use Lizol or Savlon in the water. It disinfects the water. It also gives good smell.
- When cooler is not in use, store it in a dry place out of direct sunlight.
