Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Atul air cooler consumes nearly the same amount of energy as a standard ceiling fan. Atul 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.
With no direct water source available, the water will evaporate in a filled tank within two to 10 hours of operation, depending on the water capacity of the evaporative cooler, ambient conditions, temperature and humidity.
A water source for refilling the tank is recommended by the manufacturer.
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 the closed environment. 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 clarion 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.
For optimum performance, the temperature should be 40˚C or higher and the relative humidity should be below 75%.
