Importance Of Evaporative Cooler Maintenance

Evaporative cooler maintenance can keep your air coolers perfect even if you were using it for 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The evaporative coolers need a major cleaning every season and also routine maintenance regularly during the entire cooling season.

The air cooler needs regular maintenance in places with hot climates because constant working of the air coolers leads to building up of unwanted sediments and minerals. You should replace the pads at least twice during the entire cooling season or as frequent as once a month during its time of constant operation.

Correct evaporative cooler maintenance will make the coolers last longer and work more efficiently. To maintain the air cooler perfectly, you should clean and disinfect the cooler in every six months. To ensure good flow of air into the room, you should prevent the build-up of sediments, fungus and algae inside the air cooler by using water softeners. Make sure that you specially clean the filter pads and the basin present inside the air coolers. There are windblown dust and pollens that get accumulated in the basin, creating sludge and blocking the pumps, water distribution system and the filter pads. So the interiors of the air cooler should be cleaned at regular intervals.

Maintenance Tips Before Summer and After Summer

Evaporative cooler maintenance should be conducted regularly to keep the cooler disinfected and clean. Since air coolers are the major instruments to distribute air in a surrounding, and people will always be breathing that air, so it is very important that the air should be fresh and clean. The air can be fresh only when there is regular maintenance of the air cooler.

During summer, following are the ways:

* Remove all external weatherproof covers

* Remove the filer pads and clean them thoroughly with a water hose

* Clean all the waterways thoroughly including the sump and bleed-off systems

* Refit the filter pads, close the drain valves and open water inlet valves to allow the units to fill them with fresh water

Immediately after summer, clean the air coolers in the following ways:

* Disconnect all powers to the unit

* Take out all the sediments and slimes from the basin with a brush

* Let all the dirty water flow out from the tanks and pipes

* Clean the basin and water pump guards with a cloth soaked in diluted household disinfectants

* Dry the internal parts of the air cooler by running the fan

* Fit waterproof covers to external units

Easy Guidelines For Maintaining The Coolers

Evaporative cooler maintenance is not a difficult task and can be completed within very less time with minimum of assistance from external sources.

Following are some instant cooler maintenance tips:

* Shut off the power and water supply before you start to clean your air cooler

* Install new media pads at least twice during the entire season to prevent unnecessary clogging of dust, pollen, mildew and minerals from evaporated waters

* Remove the cooler drain tube in the reservoir pan and cleanse out all elements like silt, dissolved salt, stored dirty water, old pad fibers with nylon brushes and plastic scrapers.

* Check to see that the V-belt is not cracked.

* Rotate the motor and the blower wheels to check the correct working of the air cooler. Replace the wheels in case of any damages

* In case the water is not flowing smoothly through the side panels then clear the blockage by placing a flexible wire into the tube-end orifice.

So maintain your air cooler following the above-mentioned guidelines to enjoy fresh and healthy air.

Know All About The Evaporative Cooler Prices

Evaporative coolers are a better option when compared to the costly air conditioners. Since the evaporative coolers are cheap in their prices, possess high-tech systems and are quite reliable, so people prefer to use them. Portable and small in size, the air coolers keep your home and office truly cool spreading fresh and healthy air throughout the space. Evaporative cooler prices vary from cooler to cooler because each of the coolers has its own set of features and benefits. These outstanding features that differentiate them from one another include the speed fans, washable filters, and anti-bacterial water tank.

The evaporative coolers range in prices due to their different features that are sometimes common in each of the air coolers. If the air coolers have features like fans, remote control operating system, heater systems, and follow humidifier methods, then the prices of those evaporative coolers range from $64.89 to $114.99. These air coolers usually work with 60 to 200 watts of power and reduce the air temperature in the surrounding space to a considerable extent.

Different Types And Their Different Prices

The prices of the evaporative coolers also vary for the different types of the air coolers. The portable air coolers that can be moved from one place to another are quite durable and reliable. They cost lesser as compared to the air-conditioners that usually have exorbitant prices. The regular prices of these evaporative coolers are approximately $139.99 and the sale price of the coolers is $109.99. The evaporative air coolers that contain ionizers have their prices ranging from $129.99 to $149.99. The sale prices of these air coolers, however, range from being $89 to $99. These air coolers are truly advantageous, as the prices remain low yet they offer the highest cooling ambience to the entire space around.

Variation In Prices Due To The Size And Capacity Of The Air Coolers

The prices of the evaporative coolers also differ due to the size and capacity of the air coolers. If the coolers have a fan, humidifier and ionic air purifier system operated by a remote control then the prices range from being $100 to $120. The air coolers capable of cooling huge areas like 200 square feet range in prices from being $70 to $120. These coolers work great in dry conditions under 50 % humidity level.

The evaporative cooler prices also depend upon the brands of the coolers. So while the Fujitronic portable coolers range in prices from being $90 to $129, the hi-cool evaporative air coolers range from being $250 to $400. The slant/fin air-cooling system uses water evaporation systems to cool the air much more than the fan. So these air coolers range in prices from $93.49 to $103.49.

The portable air coolers that can be operated with the remote controls can range in prices $229 to $250. So if you need an evaporative cooler that is portable, powerful, energy-efficient and considerable prices, then you should compare the prices and then opt for the air-cooler that will best suit your purposes. You should make a thorough survey of the online prices to get an air cooler that will be just suitable for the area space of your home or office and come in useful package within your budget.

Cooling At Lower Costs With Industrial Evaporative Coolers

Large Air Coolers – For Industries Only

In some places in industries, a lower temperature (compared to atmospheric) is required from process point of view or from comfort point of view. Air conditioning is out of question, as it would require large capital and huge running payment of electricity bills. Evaporative cooling is the solution in this case. This is just a scaled up model of home air coolers.

Working Principle Of Evaporative Coolers

Evaporative cooling is known to humanity since ages. Earthen clay pots have been providing coldwater during summer when there was no air conditioning or refrigeration. The fired clay pots have tiny holes through which water comes out and when it comes to surface, it evaporates. The heat required for evaporation is taken out from the water inside the pot. The heat transfer from the water is possible only because of the tiny passage in earthenware pots. The same principle is used in industrial evaporative coolers.

Air circulating fans draw air through a curtain of water. The water trickles down a path and during passage; water is broken down to tiny droplets giving it a large surface area. Air drawn through these tiny droplets and is cooled the same way as it happens in an earthen pot. The cold is circulated through the industrial installation. This gives installation an air which has a lower than atmospheric temperature. Evaporative cooling gives you comfortable atmosphere when outside is too hot to bear.

Advantages Of Evaporative Cooling

Advantage of evaporative cooling is the initial low cost and low operating costs. All that is required is the water pumps and the air circulating fans. The whole set up is compact. Evaporative cooling is the only method of removing large quantity of heat from cooling water used in many industrial plants. Here instead of removing heat from atmospheric air, heat from water is rejected to atmospheric air.
