Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE BEST ENVIRONMENT TO PRODUCE THE MOST COOL AIR?
For best performance of an evaporative air cooler, the temperature should be 38° C or higher and relative humidity should be below 50%. However, Vargo air cooler will reduce the temperature in almost any environment, making it more comfortable.
WHERE SHOULD I PLACE MY AIR COOLER?
For best performance, you should place your air cooler in front of the window. Since air coolers work on the principle of evaporative air cooling, more the hot air will get in, faster will be the evaporation and you’ll get cooler air.
HOW LONG WILL THE WATER SUPPLY LAST IN THE TANK?
The water in the tank will evaporate within 2 to 10 hours of operation, depending upon the water storage capacity of the air cooler, temperature and humidity.
CAN WE PUT ICE IN AIR COOLER?
Yes, you can put ice in the Ice chamber of your air cooler. Adding ice to the water makes the pads cooler, resulting in cool air passing through them.
CAN I OPERATE VARGO AIR COOLER ON INVERTER?
Yes, all Vargo air coolers are inverter-ready.
HOW IS AN AIR COOLER DIFFERENT FROM A STANDARD FAN?
A standard fan rotates to circulate the air inside the room so that perspiration on your skin can evaporate quickly. Hence, it has limited cooling effect.
Air coolers on the other hand, have a significant effect in reducing the temperature of the ambient air by introducing moisture into the air. While a circulating fan only affects skin perceptible temperature, an air cooler can actually lower indoor temperature by nearly 5℃. Air coolers are also a lot quieter than standard fans.
WHAT IS EVAPORATIVE AIR COOLING?
An evaporative air cooler works by introducing moisture into the air and lowering its temperature. The air cooler takes in dry air, moistens it with water vapour, and releases cooled air into the room. This form of cooling is cheaper and more energy-efficient than traditional refrigeration techniques.
HOW MUCH ELECTRICITY DOES AN AIR COOLER REQUIRE TO RUN?
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 Vargo air cooler consumes nearly the same amount of energy as a standard ceiling fan. Vargo air coolers require energy in the range of 100 watts/hr to 225 watts/hr.
IS AN AIR COOLER EFFECTIVE?
Air cooled by an air cooler is pleasant and offers optimal relief from the summer heat by humidifying the dry air. Vargo air coolers work best in dry, arid conditions, and provide a cooling effect lowering the temperature by 3-5°C.
