FAQ

How does an air cooler work?

An evaporative air cooler works by introducing moisture into the air and lowering its temperature. The air cooler takes in dry air, moistens it with water vapour, and releases cooled air into the room. This form of cooling is cheaper and more energy-efficient than traditional refrigeration techniques.

How is an air cooler different from a standard fan?

A standard ceiling fan rotates to increase circulation of air within a room so that the perspiration on your skin can evaporate more quickly. However, the cooling effect is limited. Fans cannot operate in closed environments and in regions where air velocity exceeds 6.4 kilometers an hour. If ambient temperatures are above the body’s natural temperature (37℃), a rotating fan will heat the body instead of cooling it.

Air coolers, on the other hand, have a tangible cooling effect on the ambient air. By introducing moisture into the air and circulating it effectively, a Symphony air cooler can lower the room temperature significantly. While a circulating fan only affects skin perceptible temperature, an air cooler can actually lower indoor temperature by nearly 5℃. Air coolers work on the principle of evaporative cooling, which is a more reliable and consistent technique than circulation. Air coolers are also a lot quieter than standard fans.

Do air coolers require a lot of electricity to run?

Air cooling is the most energy-efficient cooling technology available. Operating costs for an air cooler are 1/10th of a traditional air conditioner. A 2.2-ton split air conditioning unit can consume 2200 watts an hour. A Symphony air cooler consumes nearly the same amount of energy as a standard ceiling fan. Symphony air cooling units require energy in the range of 105 watts/hr to 255 watts/hr.

Although the energy consumption of a ceiling fan and air cooler is similar, the cooling effect is considerably different. Air coolers can cover a larger area, actually cool the air, and work noiselessly.

Are air coolers effective in a humid environment?

An evaporative air cooler works by introducing moisture into the air and lowering its temperature. The air cooler takes in dry air, moistens it with water vapour, and releases cooled air into the room. This form of cooling is cheaper and more energy-efficient than traditional refrigeration techniques.

Air coolers may be less effective in moderately humid areas, but they can still provide ventilation and air circulation. However, air coolers are not recommended in areas with high relative humidity.
