Summers and Your Air Cooler Unit
Summers are here and so is the need to give your air cooler a bit of dust off so that it could be used for months to come. In this article, we are going to tell you how to take the right care of Swamp cooler, air cooler, and desert cooler so that they continue to give you uninterrupted performance. When you let the air cooler sit ideal for months then it ends up collecting dirt, dust, and debris which could affect its performance and it might not coo the way you expect it to be. So let’s take a look at the tips that can help you to keep your air cooler performing like new all the time.
- Clean/Replace Pads
Cooling pads that take most area of the back and side of air cooler needs to be clean and free of dust and debris. This will ensure that they have enough space for the air to pass freely and this will aid in the overall cooling efficiency of the cooler. They also need to be bit dense in order to keep them wet with flow of water at the same time. So if you notice that the pads have become loose and there is too wide gap between them, then it might be a good idea to replace them with new pads.
- Water Pump
Water pump of the air cooler must perform feely and the pipes that take ware to each section of the pads must be blockage free. Get the routing of tiny pipes checked and make sure that the water motor is not making any whining noise when it is working.
- Clear Debris
Collect and scoop out debris and leaves from the top and side of the air cooler unit is the back is exposed to the outer environment. Make sure that the drain of tank is not blocked.
- Check Air Throw
Check the throw of air from the exhaust fan at all the fan speeds. If you feel that the air flow is not sufficient, there might be a problem with the motor of the fan and you might have to get it checked from a professional.
Test your air cooler unit by individually operating the water pump and fan. After you have checked them individually, check them simultaneously and feel the coolness of the air. Also check the wire and look for any signs of crack or damage.
