Electricity Saving Tips For Homes And Offices

Desert Air Coolers better option than Air Conditioners for hot and dry places

By on April 22, 2016

Air Conditioners can significantly increase electricity bills is a fact that is known to many people, but still many people buy it thinking that buying an air conditioner has become a necessity. While we can agree to an extent to the fact that temperatures have increase a bit in last century, but it is not that the life was difficult when there were no air conditioners. For a long time, people in India, especially those living in hot and dry climates used to rely more on desert air coolers. The coolers not only cooled the rooms, but also kept the electricity bills low. Consuming about one tenth the amount of electricity as compared to air conditioners, air coolers were not a big dent on the pocket as compared to air conditioners. So if you are someone who is concerned about rising electricity bills due to air conditioners, and you live in an area that is hot and dry, switching from an AC to air cooler can be the easiest energy saving option.


Comparing Capital Costs and Operating Costs

Air Coolers are way cheaper as compared to Air Conditioners. They cost about 80-85% less as compared to Air Conditioners, thus making them very cheap to install as compared to an air conditioner. For a 200 sq ft room, a right sized air cooler would cost about Rs 6000-8000 whereas an Air Conditioner would cost about Rs 35000-40000.

Even if we compare electricity consumption, air coolers consume 80-90% less electricity as compared to air conditioners. In the example mentioned above, a 1.5-ton AC would consume about 1.2-1.5 units in an hour, whereas an air cooler would consume just 0.2-0.3 units in an hour.

Comparing Air Quality benefits

Air Conditioners by design cool the internal air. They take the internal air in a room and cool it down to the temperature set on the thermostat. They also remove the moisture from the air and make it dry. So all in all, the same dry air keeps getting circulated in the room. There is no option to get fresh air from outside while using air conditioner.

Whereas in case of Air Coolers, fresh outside air is taken, cooled and pushed in the room. Fresh air is taken from outside and passed through an evaporative pad containing water. The hot dry air cools down when it comes in contact with water on the evaporative pad. Although there is no option to control the temperature in air coolers, but it always supplies fresh air.AirCoolerProcess

Air Coolers are Greener

If going green is something that you are concerned about, then Air Coolers are the best option for you. Air Coolers use water as refrigerant, whereas Air Conditioners use CFCs or Chloroflurocarbons that are harmful for environment. Although plans are being made to phase out use of CFCs as refrigerants, but implementation of the same will take time. The easiest way to be green is to use Air Coolers.

Even if we consider carbon emissions for generating electricity, use of Air Coolers turns out to be a greener option because it uses 80-90% less electricity as compared to Air Conditioners.

Installing air coolers

The most common place where people install desert air coolers is on one of the windows in a room. But at times there are situations when there is no window or a very small window in a room. In case you have option of setting up an air cooler on the terrace, then you can set up a big air cooler on the terrace with a pipe/vent system to deliver air in all rooms. Such a setup will also help reduce the sound in a room generated by air coolers.

Conclusion

If you live in an area that is hot and dry, air cooler is the best option. It not only helps reduce electricity bills, but also helps improve the air quality in a room. And on top of that it is the greenest option available to you to opt for.

Here is a short video for tips to buy the best air conditioner in India

i live in kolkata.the house is poorly developed lacking design and proper insulation.how to get rid of the heat babe.

2

Can you suggest some brand ac split with R290 refrigerant for domestic use.

3
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Godrej uses R290.

4

Yes, it is. This aspect is making me confused bcoz I am more inclined towards getting a cooler instead. Can u tell me how much humidity is suitable for a cooler?

5
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Coolers are most effective when humidity is lower than 50%. More lower it is, better results you will get.

6

Hi, I live in Guwahati. Will purchasing an air cooler be a better option than purchasing an AC here in Guwahati?

7
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

If the climate is not humid then cooler would be good. Else it would be better to go for AC. I think Guwahati is humid, right?

8

Hi, I've seen one ad where it was projected that certain air cooler can be used even with inverters. Can all air coolers run on inverters, in case of load sheddings?

9
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Air coolers can be used with inverters. There should be no problem in that.

10

Hi, I need to buy a portable air cooler for my home. I already have a 1.5 Ton AC and need a portable air cooler for second room. The room size is between 400 - 800 sq.ft.. Which be the best option in Portable Air Coolers considering that the Power should not trip when both AC and Air Cooler are working together.

11
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Pratista,

If your wires have sufficient current carrying capacity then the power should not trip when both AC and cooler are working together. I am not sure why you have this concern? Have you seen it happening in your house?

12

hi i live in mumbai i want to buy air cooler which option is better..........humidity of mumbai is high

13
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Puja,

Air Coolers do not work well in Mumbai.

14

Hi abhishek,

I live in Kolkata... In summer the humidity level in Kolkata is 90%-95%... Is it advisable to buy an Air-Cooler in such a humid atmosphere? OR will you suggest AC?

Thank you

15
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi San,

For high humidity I would recommend AC. Cooler will not be very effective.

16

Hi abhishek,
I am looking for air cooler for my living room,we have spilt AC installed in that area but not effective as there is open kitchen,please suggest indoor cooler but take care that outside direct air will not be possible as we have sliding doors.

17
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Ashutosh,

Using an air cooler along with AC would not be advisable. That is because their way of function is exactly opposite. An air cooler cools the room by adding humidity to dry air. Whereas an AC cools the room by cooling the air which comes in contact with liquid refrigerant. When the Air cools in an AC, it removes humidity. So Cooler adds humidity and AC removes humidity. So it will not work well together. Also for a cooler to cool a room well, it needs good air circulation and hot dry air from outside to come in. Else it will just keep adding humidity and will not be very effective.

So cooler needs hot and dry outside air to come in and the AC needs cool air to remain inside the room. So both cannot work together.

18

I live in Surat, Gujarat. Please suggest me an air-cooler for 400 sq. feet room...

You can look at any of these:

Hi
I would like to buy an air cooler for the corridor which is an open space outdoor.do you think an air cooler could help?

21
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Air Coolers are good for open spaces where there is lot of ventilation. You can certainly go for air cooler.

22
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Hitesh,

Floor Standing ACs have very limited market presence. And even in that you will hardly find any energy efficient options. There are mostly 1 & 2 star rated models available. And so I would suggest that you better go for split AC.

23

Hi,
Please suggest me as to which air cooler to purchase for a room of about 180 sqm. I stay in Mumbai.

24
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I would not suggest a cooler for Mumbai because they add humidity and will not be comfortable.

25

Hi, I have been looking for air coolers for home at my native place for my parents. It is near to tirupati in andhrapradesh which is very humid. The humidity levels range upto 70% sometimes. As learnt from ur post, air coolers are not useful for humid places. Also my mom is asking for a long stand fan and she says that it is much better than an air cooler. But i am skeptical that fan doesn't give cool air. Please suggest me.

26
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Banupriya,

In general Air Conditioners are the best for humid climates. Air coolers are not very effective as their principle of working is by adding water to hot dry air and thereby making it cool. A fan should certainly work out better in such case as it at least improves the air circulation of the room and good air circulation does help improve the comfort of air close to the body by taking away body sweat. If you have budget then go for an air conditioner. Air Cooler may not be very effective.

27

Thank you so much Abhishek. As we need it in the hall, i wanted to buy air cooler as air conditioner is not a great option in kinda open place. Now i feel its better to go for the fan as it is only for two people and require only when they are in the hall.

28
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You are welcome. That is right, even I think that fans would be better.

29

i need a cooling machine without containig any moisture on my color sorter machine whTS ur advice ac or a desert cooler...?

30
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

AC will be better if you do not want moisture. Desert cooler will generate moisture.

31

Hi, I want to buy aircooler for my hall which has no windows and residing top floor. Cross ventilation is necessary for aircooler to work effectively . In my case it is not available and cant install ac also. Suggest me option for a aircooler without requiring cross ventilation,

32

Hi Abhishek,

wanted to buy an aircooler for my moms house..

I live in Theni, Tamilnadu

Humidity is below 50% during daytime, Can I go for an air cooler? IF so could you please recommend which "desert cooler" model for room size 15' x 10' x 10'?

there are so many like symphony, usha, voltas, kenstar etc...which model has features like humidity control and ice cube tray?

33
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Joe,

The climate in Theni is similar to that in Mumbai. Humidity levels are around 30-40%. In such environment a cooler may not be very effective. You may use it with ice, but water cooling may not be very effective. You can look at these models that have ice chamber:

Voltas VB-P15MH (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2puxAmp )
Symphony HiCool Smart i (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2puI7hG )

34

I thought you said that if humidity level is below 50% coolers are effective...Only if humidity is greater than 50% then coolers are not good...IVe read your comments below like that..Am i misunderstood?

35
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Joe,

I did not mention 50%. The humidity levels in your city are similar to Mumbai. And in such situations, coolers are not very effective.

36

Ok so what humidity levels are suitable for coolers? is it below 20% ?

37
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Less than 10%.

38

How much units a desert cooler consumes if it run for 15 hours a day

39
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Desert Coolers should be about 200-300 watts. So in 15 hours it would consume 300x15 = 4500 Wh or 4.5 units of electricity.

40

Hi Abhishek

I am from Delhi and planing to buy a cooler (room/desert/duct) for one of my rooms in my apartment which in size is 10' 0''x12' 0''.
Would really appreciate your expert suggestions on this one that which cooler to go with.
Also help me with the make and model if you are aware of any.

Anticipating a revert.

Thanks
Sagar V

41
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

If you have a window in the room, then I would suggest that you go for a desert cooler. Because constructing the duct etc for a single room would be a bit expensive (unless you are ready to spend money because you like the room to be quite). Room Coolers should be opted only if you want mobility of the cooler or you do not have easily accessible window in the room where cooler can be placed.

42

Thanks for your revert Abhishek.
Would room cooler fulfill the purpose ? If yes, kindly let me know any model if you know.
Also what do you think about Ram Cooler Duct 204.

43
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Room cooler can certainly fullfill the purpose, but you will find that desert cooler gives better cooling. If you want room coolers then you can look at these:

Symphony DiET 12i (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ppLDtv )
Symphony Ice cube i (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ptd56T )
Maharaja Whiteline Thunder+ (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2pIjWss )
Orient Electric Supercool CP3001H (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ptk13Z )

Ram Coolers is a good brand (especially for Duct and window coolers). You can certainly go for Duct 204 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ppGe5S ).

44

Thanks again Abhishek.

Just one last query. I will keeping the cooler inside the room and not outside. So, let me know which one should I go with : "Symphony DiET 12i" or "Duct 204".
Anticipating a revert.

45
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You can go with Symphony Diet 12i.

46

Hi.. Abhishek..I have a 200 sq ft hall... would you suggest a desert cooler or a normal air cooler

47
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

It will be better if you go for a Desert Cooler.

48

There is a lot of discussion on the subject of Air coolers Vs Air conditioner. While it cannot be denied that an air cooler has much more cooling capacity than an air conditioner PER RUPEE spent, there is an important rider that is not usually mentioned. An air cooler has a serious limitation in high humidity areas, usually areas close to sea coast. People must be made aware thatthe more the relative humidety, the lesser is the cooling power of air cooler. When the RH (relative humidity) is close to 100% air cooler cooling capacity is almost nil.

49
Sripad Mahaprabhu Das

Thank you for this wonderful information. I'm just in a way to purchase an AC for my puja room. Its about 12 feet by 12 feet. But now with this article I'm considering to install a Air cooler with duct & keeping the cooler on terrace or some other location which will also reduce sound level in my puja room.
So kindly help me where can i find such type of air cooler...

50
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hare Krishna Prabhu,

Check Ram Coolers ( https://www.ramcoolers.com/ ), they have good duct coolers. Their duct coolers are also available on amazon: http://amzn.to/2nf5zyY

51

Hi - Abhishek. I have an open dining, living and kitchen area about 300-400 sq feet. My entire house would be 700-800 square feet. I want a cooler mainly for the open area but wouldn't mind if something is strong enough for the entire house. I am thinking of purchasing Ram Cooler Duct 780 or 1100. Which one would be better? And with or without honeycomb? I have some concerns about honeycomb as people say they do not cool as well as normal khus. I live in Delhi and on the top first floor - it gets very hot in summers. Please advise. Thanks.

52
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

If you want stronger cooler then Ramcooler Duct 1100 would be better. In fact big coolers from local dealers would also be good enough, you need not go for a branded one necessarily. Go with a cooler with normal khus.

53

Great, thank you so much! I do not know which local dealer will be good so I thought of going ahead with Ram Coolers. Also because they are offering one year warranty. Just wanted to know if the duct style is ok - hope it won't have lower performance compared to normal ones. Also is the Ram Coolers brand good?

54
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Among the branded ones, Ram Coolers are really good. It is one of the popular cooler brand (especially those that make outdoor coolers). Duct style should be fine. In fact ducts help reduce the fan noise and in general are great to use if you put it on the roof and put ducts to redirect air to the rooms.

55

Thanks Abhishek! Your feedback has really helped my decision. Ram Coolers Duct models have the duct air dispenser in the shape of a window AC and is attached on the the main body of the cooler itself. They say the noise levels are very low. It sounds quite good. Thanks a lot for your time.

56

In Desert cooler which can be good for hall - Symphony Sumo or Jr Sumo , Pls suggest me to buy today with sanpdeal offer.

57
Narasoji Rao katika

Hi Abhishek , Ram Coolers Duct 204 (9500rs) or Symphony Sumo Air Cooler (10000) which one will be best

58
Narasoji Rao katika

Hi , I am from AP ( 40 to 45 degrees) , Which cooler is best for hall in current market Desert or Diet ?

59
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Desert Coolers are always better in cooling. Buy the one which is installed on the window rather than going for one which is kept inside the room.

60

this is an ammazing difference what i was searching of thanku soo much...

61

I have 3 ceiling fans, 1 wall mounted hi speed fan, 1 air cooler, i got 936/- for the electricity bill. Isnt it too much?

62
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Depends on where you are and what type of connection you have :). Commercial tariff in Maharashtra/Mumbai are super high.

63

which one consumes more electricity a wall mounted hi speed fan or a ceiling fan?

64
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Again depends on type and make of fan you have. In general wall mounted fan consume 55 watts and less. Regular ceiling fans consume 90 watts and less. But if you have super efficient ceiling fans, they may consume as low as 30 watts and less. So depends on type/brand, etc.

65

HI MY ROOM SIZE IS 10X12 & TOP FLOOR WITH DIRECT SUNLIGHT .
PLS ADVISE HAVE ANY OUTSIDE COOLER OR INSIDE COOLER.
And WHICH BRAND AND MODEL IS BEST FOR MY ROOM
PLS ADVISE

66
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

An outdoor cooler is always the best for cooling. Check out models from Ram Coolers. Ram Cooler Duct 204 would be a good option.

67

According to me AC use 4Hrs a day whereas Air cooler run for whole night and it's about 12Hrs a day. So of u calculate power consumption as per above data I.e FOR AC 1.2x4= 4.8units and for Cooler 0.3x12=3.6units. 1.2 extra unit a day doesnt make any differ.(1.2units x 30days= 36units . 36unit x Rs 5 per units = Rs 180extra electricity bill per month)

68

Dear Friend, want to buy cooler to be used by my friend's aged parents who are in vizag, can you please suggest good room cooler to used in approx 12 x 12 room. Please suggest model with brand..Thanks

You can look at any of these:

Symphony Ice cube i
Ram Coolers Cute 123

Crompton Greaves WAC-401
Orient Super Cool CP3001H
Ram Coolers Duct 250

Hi for a closed room with central conditioning it costs us 3k a hours. Which aircooler can substitute a close room AC?

71

Hi Umang, do you have a solution to control the humidity in industrial air coolers? I want to cool my workshop of 3000 sq.ft. with 12ft.height and asbestos roofing but in our area(Varanasi) humidity is high specially during monsoon. What's the solution?

72

Hii umang Patel I want ur advise that we have bought a new showroom of 4000sqft so we should use ac or cooler there is a option of keeping inside or outside ou showroom is
spuare 60*60 is the size of showroom at hyd

73
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

HI Umang,

All depends on the kind of clientele you want in your showroom. If your clients will prefer just adequate cooling then even a cooler would be good (as I assume Hyderabad is not too humid). But if your clients want it to be upscale then you may have to go for ACs. So it truly depends.

74

hi abhishek...can you please tell me which better option for coolibg a cooler with honeycomb pad or a desert cooler...i have two options maharaja whiteline atlanto desert air cooler with honeypad 45L Rs.10683 and another is maharaja whiteline atlanto desert air cooler without honeypad 45L Rs.7630. My room area is 15*20 and i have to use inside my room not at window.Please also tell me which one will create more humidity.

75
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

HI Anil,

Desert coolers also have honeycomb cooling pad, so I did not understand your question properly. Keeping a cooler outside is far better than keeping it inside the room. You will get much better cooling if you keep it outside. Honeycomb pads are good and should give you good cooling. So I would say, go for the one with honeycomb pads. Keeping the cooler inside will create humidity. It is better to keep it out if you want less humidity. Coolers these days also have humidity control feature that can help reduce humidity.

76

"pichooo" if you use cooler inside the room it wil give u a bundle of humidity and make ur life hell.and could turn ur electronics gadgets in toys ...LOL...always use coolers at window or any ventilated place where air can pass through easily...

77

Hi, Please suggest some good coolers for 150 Sqft at Navi Mumbai location. I do not have budget to buy AC.

78
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Coolers do not work really well in Mumbai. They add to humidity. Do you really want to go for one?

79

Why do we sticky on skin when using coolers in mumbai..?
Does Coolers causes any respiratory problem like any chest infection if using full night..?

80
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Coolers are not effective in humid climate of Mumbai. They add to humidity and thus you feel sticky. Also I don't think coolers can cause chest infection.

81

Hello im looking forward to buying the Usha CLX30XC.Can you tell me how good is this air cooler.

82
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

This air cooler is good for a room about 150 sq ft in size. It's power consumption of 250 watts is on a higher side for coolers of that size. It uses Honeycomb pads which is good.

83

hello abhiskek would you recommend me to go for Symphony or USHA ?

84
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

What is the size of your room?

85

Hi Abhishek, I want to buy an Air Cooler in a hall (12x20) which is ground floor and 2 floors above mine. I was advised to install it outside the window for better cooling. Just wanted to know should I go for a Desert cooler or a room cooler will do the job?

86
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Desert Cooler in general are better at cooling. So the suggestion that you got to install it outside is right. Room Coolers are not as effective as desert cooler.

87

HI MY ROOM SIZE IS 10X12 & TOP FLOOR WITH DIRECT SUNLIGHT PLS ADVISE HAVE ANY COLLER FOR THIS OR I SHOULD BE GO FOR AN AC
PLS ADVISE

88
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Naveen,

Choice between AC and Cooler depends solely on the budget you have. AC is quite comfortable and quite, while Cooler adds humidity and not as effective in peak summers. So it truly depends. You can look at these coolers:

Symphony DiET 12i
Symphony Ice cube i
Ram Coolers Cute 123
Ram Coolers Eco 100

89

DEAR MR. ABHISHEK
WELL NOTED THANKS BUT IF I GO FOR AN AC THEN THERE WILL ELECTRICITY COST ALSO SO I WANT TO BUY A COOLER PLS SUGGEST MY BUDGET
IS 10-12 K

90
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Naveen,

We have given a list of air coolers in india along with the top most efficient ones on this link: https://www.bijlibachao.com/air-conditioners/air-coolers-in-india-symphony-kenstar-bajaj-technology-efficiency-brands-and-prices.html

Symphony DiET 12i, Symphony Ice cube i, Ram Coolers Cute 123 or Ram Coolers Eco 100 would be good for your room. They would consume just about 100 watts and would cool your 120 sq ft room. Ram Coolers have steel body and you can install them outside on your window.

91

Plant tress ,now time has come...human should understand this...

92

any cooler available that cooles the water present inside the cooler .
in summer water turns hot in few hour.k

93

I don't think so. Water remains cools irrespective of external temperature

94
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Not really. Haven't seen any like that.

95

well explain .what is about Ice chamber ?is it chamber where i can put my ice cubes from refrigerator ?or is it like cooler having its own cool chamber?

/

96
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Rajesh,

You will have to put ice cubes from outside. Be it from refrigerator or you get dry ice. The cooler will not generate ice on its own.

97

What is this humidity control feature in some coolers that you mentioned about ? How does it work ?

98
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

In whatever is available in India, it just controls the flow of water. The setting is manual. So if you want to reduce the flow of water on the cooling pads, then you can do that using the humidity control regulator.

99

Abhishek ji, your answer is not releevant to his question. He just wanted to know that how the humidity control future makes his experience better.

100

living in Mumbai as humid around , will the desert cooler sufficient for area 150sq ft to be fitted outside house with pipe vent inside room distance 7ft ?

with various seller available also come across Ramcooler , how about its perfomances

101

Cooling is not really required in Mumbai at all. Being in coastal area Mumbai has even climate.

102
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Desert Cooler is not quite effective in Mumbai as the air is humid. You may try a cooler that has Ice compartment and then use Ice with it. However in general coolers are not quite effective in Mumbai.

103

WITH HUMIDITY IN MUMBAI SUBURBB WHICH COOLER TO CONSIDER . I.E DESERT OR ROOM TO COVER AREA 150SQFT

Arunkumar Soundararajan

Looking for a good desert cooler for a room size ~120 sft. Also, how can one fit the desert cooler in the window as you mentioned in some of the old posts, they are so huge...not sure why the manufacturers provide wheels? I looked at the leading desert coolers and all have wheels and are huge
http://www.usha.com/home-appliances/climate-control/desert-coolers

105
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi,

You will have to look at room cooler rather than a cooler on wheels. You can check Room Coolers from Symphony Air Coolers or Ram Coolers.

106

Please recommend a suitable cooler for Bangalore summers. Size of room: 200sq.ft.

108
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Bibek,

You can go for an air cooler that can work on ice (has ice chamber). That way it will cool the room and not throw water. What is your budget for the cooler?

109
vishal prajapati

Rs. 6,000/-

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You can look at any of these:

Bajaj Room Cooler PC 2000 DLX
Bajaj Room Cooler TT 2011

Ram coolers Smart 160

McCoy models have ice chamber while Bajaj models have humidity control that can help you reduce water throw.

Hi,

thanks a ton. your post and message reply very much helpful.

So, as per the opinion I should go with HI-COOL humid control cooler for humid weather. But I am looking for some low budget cooler around 5k - 7k. Can you suggest some names or models like that.

113
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You can look at these coolers that have adjustable humidification level and can fit in your budget:

Bajaj Room Cooler PC 2000 DLX
Bajaj Room Cooler TT 2011
Khaitan Dezire 20

I am living in Mumbai where climate is humid. I bought bajaj tc 2010 only for summer..good for 2 persons. I too didn't want to invest more in air cooler. this cooler is for coastal areas.
