1. Make sure there is ventilation in the room
Air circulation is very important for air coolers. The use of air coolers must be accompanied by ventilation in a room, or at least the door to the room is opened. Why? Because the air cooler is an air conditioning device that also makes the air more humid.
In principle, air has its own level of humidity. So by using an air cooler, of course, this humidity level will increase. When the air around the air cooler has reached 80% humidity, the cooling function of this air cooler will no longer be felt. Because the water content in the air is very high. So the evaporation process can no longer occur. Instead, you’ll feel sticky and moist, instead of cool. So make sure there is ventilation in the room where you use the air cooler.
2. Understand the Importance of Air Flow
Air flow is a very important variable when buying an air cooler. High air flow means that the air cooler can blow air with a larger volume. Simply put, the greater the air flow, the faster a room can become cooler.
To understand how much air flow you need for your room, please see the explanation by clicking here (this link takes you to the bottom of the article that explains in more detail the calculation of air flow).
You also have to understand that the greater the air flow, the faster the air will become humid. So back again, you have to make sure that there is ventilation in the room. In order to maintain a stable level of humidity, you must ensure that the same volume of moist air continues to come out of the vent and is replaced with fresher air.
3. Do not turn on the cooling system on the air cooler on without water
On each air cooler, there is a button that turns on the cooling system. This button turns on the water pump, and runs the water circulation to the top of the air cooler. If the pump continues to run without water in the tank, this will cause damage to the water pump. Damage caused by this lack of water will result in you having to replace the pump with a new water pump.
If you want to use an air cooler without water, of course you can. This air cooler will turn into a fan, and the exhaled wind will circulate the room air. But always remember, don’t turn on the cooling button in the absence of water.
4. Make sure the water volume is always above the minimum level mark
To produce coolness, of course, the air must collide with the water in the water cooler cooling media, resulting in evaporation. So it is very important to note, that the water is always above the minimum level. Because if not, then in a short time the water will run out, and no evaporation process occurs. Then the air cooler will not produce as cool wind as it should.
When the water is at the minimum level, you should immediately refill it to the maximum level. So that the air cooler can continue to function properly. Remember, don’t let the water run out, or your water pump will be damaged and must be replaced.
5. Use clean water
Do not use your air cooler with liquids other than clean water, especially with liquids that already have solid particles in them. Because this can cause unpleasant odors to circulate in your living room. Then most importantly, this can also damage the water pump, which if it breaks then you have to replace it with a new one.
It is also not recommended that you pour perfumed oil into the water in the tank. For fear that it will have a bad effect on the Honeycomb Pad cooling media. If you want your air cooler to smell good, it’s actually quite easy. You just hang the air freshener on the Louvre or the wind direction on the air cooler.
6. Drain the Water Tank Every 2 Weeks.
An air cooler is an air conditioning device that you can take care of yourself. There is no need to call a repairman for everything, just like an Evaporative Air Conditioner (EAC). Every month, you just have to make sure that the water in your air cooler tank is always clean.
