For every air cooler, the cooling pad is the most important thing that you need to consider. The cooling effect of the air cooler depends on the type of cooling pads. The cooling pads absorb the poured water and make the air cool by passing through them. Better cooling can be possible if the cooling pad is thicker.
Cooling pads are mostly made of cellulose or aspen material. With the combination of synthetic fiber and wood shavings, aspen pads are made. These aspen cooling pads are cheaper, shorter life, lower water retention capabilities, and need high maintenance. These pads can also damage during the installation time.
In modern design, air coolers are made of cellulose pad, also known as honeycomb pads. It has a higher water retention capability that increases cooling efficiency. It is thicker than aspen pads and needs low maintenance. It is quite durable and does not need frequent replacement like aspen pads. The honeycomb pads are capable of surviving a longer life.
Water tank capacity
The air coolers follow an evaporative cooling method. In this method, water is transformed into water vapor, which reduces the air temperature blown by the fan. Buy that air cooler, which has a large water tank. If the water tank is larger, the air cooler will run for a longer time. For a large room, an air cooler is required that has a large water tank.

Frequently asked questions by the buyers
How long does air cooler keep water?
The evaporation rate simply depends on the humidity of the air. Most of the water tanks are designed in such a way that it can work for 3-6 hours without refilling. The outdoor large water coolers require continuous water in the water tank.
How often do you need to change the cooler pads?

Both aspen and honeycomb cooling pads are used in different air coolers. The quality differs by the capacity of absorbing water and how efficiently it can pass the air through it. Aspen pads are 75% efficient, and honeycomb pads are 85% efficient. The best air coolers under 15000 come in both aspen or honeycomb cooling pads.
Do Evaporative coolers use a large amount of water?
The amount of water that is used depends on the fan speed and the humidity of the day. The portable air cooler use up to 4 liter/hour.
