Summers can be rough in India, especially in some parts. Temperatures can go up to a whopping 45 degree Celsius in some parts of the country. Many of us use household air cooler to battle the summer heat. They are both, cost effective and also provide a lot of comfort. However the rising temperatures every year means we need to use household air coolers more efficiently. We’ve compiled a few simple tips that can help you achieve just that.
Ensure proper ventilation in the room
One of the most efficient way of using an household air cooler is to provide proper ventilation for it in the room. The common misconception is that household air cooler , like air conditioners work efficiently, if they are placed in closed spaces. That’s not true. Household air coolers work on the basis of evaporation, by blowing hot air through cooling pads that have been soaked with water. Hence a smooth airflow is essential for its cooling.
Add ice to water
Another effective way of increasing the cooling efficiency is by adding ice to the water in the tank. Many people have already tried it with their coolers. In fact, some coolers also come with dedicated ice compartments. Adding ice to the water makes the pads cooler, resulting in cool air passing through them. However, it is effective only when you are seated very close to the cooler. In the long run though, adding ice will not help decrease the temperature or the humidity in the room. Adding too much ice can also cause the evaporation process to slow down, hampering the efficiency of the household air cooler . This makes it important know, when to put ice in the cooler. Adding ice will prove to be more effective when you’re dealing with very high temperatures.
Take good care of household air cooler
It is important to get your household air cooler checked before using it this summer. One of the first things you should do is clean the cooling pads. Over time, they collect dust and pollen. You can use a brush to clean the pads once a week. If a lot of dust has accumulated, then the best option would be to replace them. It’s also important to clean the water tank and make sure there are no leaks. A quick swipe over the fan blades will help improve the efficiency. It’s advisable to get the household air cooler serviced regularly. If you want professional help, then you can always contact ResQ. They can help by doing a quick maintenance run and even repairs.
Saturating the cooling pads before use
One way of ensuring instant cooling is by letting the pump run while filling the tank with water. The pump will run the water through the cooling pads, allowing them to soak the water beforehand. You can run the fan after the tank is full. This helps the cooler to cool the air, as soon as you turn it on.
