10 Best Air Coolers in India 2019 – Reviews & Buyer’s Guide

Air coolers become one of the most needed appliances during the summer season especially in places like Delhi. I live in Delhi so I know how hot Delhi becomes during the summer.

In this buying guide, I am going to tell you about what are air coolers, advantages of air coolers, how to choose the best air cooler for your needs and which are the best air coolers in India.

What are Air Coolers?

Air coolers are electric appliances which cool air through the evaporation of water. They work by using water, stored in an internal water tank, to supply a filter that the hot air is drawn through and subsequently cooled before being returned to the room.

Typically they will lower the room temperature by 2 to 3 degrees.

Advantages of Air Coolers

They are relatively cheaper and cost-effective than ACs. They are usually in every man’s budget.

They consume less power which helps in saving electricity expenses. They are easy to install and don’t need servicing, unlike AC.

They are portable. The best thing I like about air coolers is that they don’t emit CFCs and other harmful gases into the environment thus don’t add to global warming.

Air coolers are your best bet if you live in a hot and dry place. However, if you live in a humid place, then go with an air conditioner.

Air Cooler Buying Guide

1. Speed Settings

More the number of speed settings on the air cooler, the more control you will have.

2. Tank Size

It is the size of the water tank in litres, which has to be kept filled. The larger the tank, the longer the air cooler can run without needing water.

3. Timer

It gives control over the amount of time that the appliance is turned on.

4. Remote Control

It helps in ease of use so you don’t have to go to cooler every time to change the settings.
