Desert Cooler | Air Cooler Buying Guide – Best Air Cooler 2022
Under 45° & in a dry climate, these desert coolers will cool your rooms quickly provided you have proper ventilation. Improper ventilation leads to lesser cooling.
2. Is the Weird Plastic Smell normal?:
The weird plastic smell is normal & will vanish on certain days.
3. Types of Cooling Pads:
There are 2 types of cooling pads. They are-
Wood Wool Cooling pads are made of wood shavings & synthetic fiber & look like grass. They are cheap but have high maintenance. They are less efficient.
Second, are Honeycomb pads which are found in most coolers. They are made of cellulose. They are more expensive but have low maintenance and more durability. All modern desert coolers have honeycomb pads on 3 sides.
4. The Fan of a Cooler:
A desert cooler comes with a fan & 60-70ft air throw is irrelevant to them. In realistic terms, air throw is 15-20ft which is practical as well as good.
5. Humid Climate:
People often ask which room cooler or desert cooler is best for humid climates. We think no air cooler is best for humid climates. They give fine cooling with proper ventilation but they certainly cannot end humidity as it is a part of the climate.
6. Noise Levels:
The average noise levels of the desert cooler are 70-75 dB. The average noise level of the washing machine is 60-65dB. Coolers do make noise. No cooler operates silently.
7. The Foul Smell:
The foul smell in coolers is because the water has not been changed. To prevent it, change the water every 3-4 days & clean pads every 2-3 weeks. Clean & Wash them weekly.
8. Castor Wheels:
To avoid damaging wheels, don’t move the cooler after filling them.
9. Avoid Fancy Names:
Don’t get attracted to the fancy names of normal technologies. Carefully read the pros and cons as it will help you in making a wise decision.
