People always look for tips and tricks to make their coolers work more efficiently and avoid any emergency breakdowns during the season. We provide some simple tips you should follow to prevent breakdown and keep your tower air cooler running efficiently
6 Best tips to keep your cooler running more efficiently
Keep the air cooler in an open space
The misconception made by people is that a cooler also works like AC in a closed room, but that’s not true. Coolers need an open space. Coolers work based on evaporation by blowing hot air through the water pads of coolers. For coolers, it’s necessary to have a smooth airflow of dry outside air. That’s why I always keep the cooler in an open space.
Keep your cooler on the window or balcony side, where you will find an open space and the best area to put your cooler.
Keep the room well ventilated
As we all know, coolers blow hot air through their water pads and pass cold air by evaporation. In the process they replace the hot room air of the cooler with cool fresh air. So, it’s good to add an exhaust on the opposite wall or just a small open window to push the hot inside air out. Many individuals have already tried this with air coolers and have really found the tip beneficial in achieving the cooling.
Regular cleaning of the cooler from outside
You can ensure good cooling by routinely cleaning and dusting. Most people think regular maintenance does not affect the cooler’s cooling. But it does; the dust on the cooler body can accumulate on water pads as well as inside water pump or distribution pipes, which can directly affect the cooling. So, you should take care of regular maintenance of your cooler for any effective cooling.
Regular Cleaning of the water pump
The water pump of air cooler keeps regularly passing water, which has many dust particles that can accumulate in the pump. This is particularly true if kids are playing in the yard or area surrounding the house and the same water pipeline enters the house.
Regular cleaning of the water pump also protects it from jamming; you must check it every month and maintain regular cleaning.
Drain the water tank when not in use
Draining the water from the cooler, when air cooler is not in use, is very important. The stagnant water generally starts smelling and even attracts the mosquito breeding. Furthermore, the water keeps the inner areas of cooler humid leading to rusting of metal body of cooler.
These days the coolers have floatball provided for auto-fill option, so you should stop the water supply from these connection and ensure the removal of water to entirely empty the tank if you are keeping the cooler idle for few day to few weeks.
Don’t forget to clean the water pads once a month
Water pads play an essential role in passing the cool air via evaporation. In this process, it also absorbs many dust particles, affecting its functioning later. Cleaning the pads regularly is essential to remove all those dust particles. This not only also helps in proper functioning, but also protects you or from dust / bacterias / viruses that have accumulated on these cooling pads.
Other factors to think about
You can do a few more things to improve the effectiveness of your air cooler. Simple actions like closing the shutters in your room or turning off the lights and other appliances could be sufficient to keep the heat out. Ensure the air cooler is placed correctly to reduce the room temperature effectively and distribute cool air to all occupants.
There are other methods also by which you can maintain the cooler’s functionality for a very long time. Like, shut the cooler during off-season time and keep it aside by draping it so that you can avoid it from getting dirty., it will be good idea to clean air cooler and from the inside and outside and also its water pump, before draping and putting it aside. The next time you purchase an air cooler in a store or online, make sure you give maintenance the respect it deserves. All these methods can protect your cooler for a longer time.
