Searching For The Best Air Cooler in India?
After doing 72 hours of research I have picked these air coolers from over 100 models below from reputed brands to make your summer cool and happy.
With the advent of summer, everyone seems to be in a rush to get themselves a new appliance to save them from the scorching sun.
Air conditioner is not an option for many and they would still prefer to have an air cooler for its cost saving benefits both in terms of initial cost and power consumption.To help you make the right choice, here are the best air coolers picked by Shubz staff for this Summer.
Important Things To Keep in Mind While Buying an Air Cooler online
1) I will recommend buying brands like Symphony , Bajaj , Crompton , Hindware to buy from Amazon & Flipkart to buy genuine and avoid fake products from other websites. I have bought Symphony Diet air cooler for my personal use and I am quite satisfied.
2) If your buying a small one (personal cooler , room cooler) then it’s for personal use ( for 2 people at most) don’t expect it to cool the whole room. But is only good enough for you sleeping and working when placed at 3-4 feet distance.
3) The cooler will need a source of fresh airflow like a window or your room entrance or near balcony. Placing it in a closed room will make room hot and humid. If you don’t have open air flow source then turn off the water pump if room feels humid.
Personal Cooler Vs Room Cooler or Desert Cooler
As the name suggest personal cooler is recommended for one person. Where as a room cooler or also known as desert cooler can be used to cool a medium sized room.
Companies often put misguided names like they might label a personal cooler as a room cooler , although it won’t be able to cool your room.
Personal cooler can be placed in inner areas of room , while desert cooler should be placed near door or window with access to outside air. This is to prevent your room from getting too much humid.
Low Noise Air Coolers
For low noise options I would recommend Symphony air coolers , run them at low speed for light cool breeze and very very less noise. Preferably the Symphony diet option above makes very low noise at medium speed.
If you want even more cooling the I would recommend having a look at our Air Conditioner lists , as spending more money on Air Coolers would not be efficient cooling and cost wise.
How To Get Rid Of Smell in New Air Coolers?
New honey comb net can produce some unbearable smell , which can last 1-3 initial days. You can put the cooler in balcony or in open space , leave it on for few hours on full speed. For other type of bad odors later , change the water regularly and drain the old water completely.
