What is an Evaporative Air Cooler?
Honeywell Evaporative Air Coolers are an environmentally-friendly and cost-friendly cooling option for your home or office. Much like a breeze flowing across a lake or the refreshing cool air you feel near a waterfall, air coolers produce a comfortable, cool breeze with the natural process of water evaporation.
HOW DO THEY WORK?
When warm air is drawn into a Honeywell Air Cooler, it passes through a wet Honeycomb Cooling Media. As it passes through it mixes with the water held in the Honeycomb, causing the water to evaporate and lose heat, resulting in cooler, moisturized air. A powerful fan then propels the cool air into the room (or outdoor area, if outdoors).
The result is a constant flow of fresh, moisturized, cool air while old and stale air is circulated out of the room.
HONEYCOMB COOLING MEDIA
Honeywell Air Coolers use a unique Honeycomb Cooling Media.The cooling efficiency is much higher than other cooling media due to greater surface area for transfer of humidity to the passing air.
LOW PURCHASE COST
Air Coolers are a budget-friendly cooling option because they are affordable to purchase and affordable to operate.
LOW ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION
Honeywell Air Coolers consume very little electricity. Running an air cooler requires significantly less electricity than running an air conditioning unit, making them an attractive cooling medium in cities where electricity cost is high.
AIR COOLER & HUMIDITY
Evaporative Air Coolers are more effective in environments with maximum relative humidity of 60% or less. Warm, dry air is important for more effective evaporative cooling and the temperature decrease will be greater in drier environments because higher evaporation occurs when the humidity is low. Evaporative Air Coolers produce moisture and can be used to increase humidification in a room.
If you live in a humid location, air coolers can still be a welcomed, energy saving cooling mechanism for your home by scheduling the air cooler to switch on at specific, drier times during the day. For example, during the hottest hours of the afternoon. Honeywell Air Coolers can also be paired with your air conditioner to extend air conditioner cooling so you can save energy by switching off the air conditioner and extending the cooling effect by switching on a Honeywell Air Cooler.

REQUIRES CROSS VENTILATION
Evaporative Air Coolers should not be used in enclosed spaces. Doors and windows should be opened to allow free air flow. An Air Cooler works best when placed near an open window, drawing outside air and circulating it in the room before exiting via a window or door. The maximum cooling effect is felt when a person is near the flow of air coming out of the Air Cooler.
Choosing a Honeywell Air Cooler
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE
1. KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
SPOT COOLERS are more compact air coolers that are designed to cool the immediate area around the cooler.
ROOM COOLERS are larger in size and provide more powerful air flow ideal for cooling larger spaces such as living or dining rooms.
OUTDOOR COOLERS are UV & weather resistant with large water tanks and ultra-powerful airflow, making them ideal for cooling outdoor areas such as your patio or backyard.
Look at the CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) or m3/hour rating of the air cooler. These tell you the amount of air that passes through the air cooler per minute (or hour). The higher an air cooler’s CFM or m2/hour rating, the faster it moves the air, providing wider coverage for the space you want to cool.
3. WATER TANK CAPACITY
Consider the water tank capacity of an air cooler. Some room coolers and outdoor coolers have a built-in continuous-water supply connection that allows you to connect with your home’s water hose for continuous tank refills.
Honeywell Air Coolers have a wide range of models offering a full suite of features. Choose the ideal models that suit your needs best.
CONTINUOUS WATER SUPPLY
These models give you the option to connect to your home’s garden hose for hassle-free, continuous water tank refills.
Models with Digital Controls offer more advanced settings including remote control, timer control and low water alarms.
Models with Timer lets you program the cooler to turn off at specific times for convenience and to help save energy.
LOW WATER ALARM
Model with Low Water Alarm warn you when the water tank needs to be refilled.
All Honeywell Air Cooler models offer swing louvers.
Choose models with an added ice compartment to add ice for faster cooling when needed.
CARBON DUST FILTER
A carbon filter is included in select models of Honeywell Air Coolers, trapping dust, mosquitos and unwanted particles from passing through the air cooler.
2-IN-1 COOLING & HEATING
Some models have 2-in-1 Cooling and Heating functions, designed to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Why a Honeywell Air Cooler?
MAXIMIZES COOLING EFFICIENCY
Honeywell Air Coolers are engineered to maximize cooling efficiency making them more effective. High cooling efficiency means the cooler will generate stronger airflow and lower ambient temperature reduction with less electricity and less water consumption. Honeywell Air Coolers are also designed with you and your family in mind, ensuring optimum quality in materials and workmanship.
Here are just some unique advantages of Honeywell Air Coolers.
UNIQUE HONEYCOMB COOLING MEDIA
Each Honeywell Air Cooler model comes with a customized Honeycomb Cooling Media designed to maximize the surface area for higher water absorption & retention. They are carefully designed with unique angles that help warm air to travel through at high speeds ensuring smooth air transition and optimum evaporative cooling.
BALANCED WATER SHOWER DESIGN
When buying an air cooler, it is important that the water flowing over the Honeycomb is dropped at the right position for balanced water absorption ensuring the Honeycomb is soaked thoroughly with no dry spots. A thoroughly soaked Honeycomb means faster and longer-lasting evaporative cooling.
MAXIMUM AIRFLOW DESIGN
Each part of a Honeywell Air Cooler is designed intelligently. Precise details such as the direction of grooves, addition of mini air-release outlets and the shape of the water tank are examples of how Honeywell Air Coolers are accurately engineered to maximize airflow for higher volume and stronger air output.
Honeywell Air Cooler air vents are equally important in maximizing airflow. Unlike some air coolers in the market, Honeywell Air Coolers maximize the air outlet size to ensure
Fan vs. Air Cooler vs. Air Conditioner
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
There is often confusion about the difference between an evaporative air cooler versus a classic fan and a window or split air conditioner.
AN AIR COOLER IS NOT “JUST A FAN”
Normal fans use fan blades to circulate air around the room without offering any cooling. Air coolers use the natural process of water evaporation to cool incoming hot air and use a powerful fan to evenly distribute newly cooled air. The temperature of dry air can drop significantly when liquid water transforms to water vapor (through evaporation).
AN AIR COOLER IS NOT A MIST FAN
Mist fans are mainly for outdoor use, unless you want your fan to give you a surprise shower in your living room. It also has to be very hot and very dry for the water to evaporate completely without making a puddle on the ground around the mist fan base. Mist fans also need a constant water connection. There’s no tank, so you can only use them if you have a water connection nearby where you intend to use the fan
AN AIR COOLER IS NOT AN AIR CONDITIONER
Air conditioners require a chemical refrigerant and an energy-consuming compressor to transform hot air into cool air. The hot air must be released outside the room., making them less environmentally friendly. The more complex composition of Air Conditioners also make them more expensive to purchase and they consume significantly more electricity during use.
