[Buying Guide] best air cooler under 6000

Size: If you are planning to get the cooler for a small size room then pay attention to the size. Usually smaller air cooler consume less power, have smaller water tank and are easy to move and set up. Larger air coolers and many window cooler can cover a large square feet area due to their fan size.

Air cooler problem and Solutions

Unfortunately you will not find anyone claiming to be the best desert air cooler under 6000 in India. 

Water Tank: Larger water tank is useful when you want to use the air cooler features for longer. Large water tank also means that the size of the air cooler will be much larger. Along with this, you will also need a reliable water pump for effective cooling. This water pump will ensure that there is continuous water supply.

Power Consumption: High air throw and air delivery will result in high power consumption. Check this if you are concerned with high electricity bills. Usually an air cooler will consume around 140 watts.

Air delivery: If you want to use the air cooler for a larger room or for more than 1 person, then please check the distance it can throw the air and how much. This may increase the blower/fan size and consume more electricity. The higher the fan speed, more air delivery you will receive.

Filters: Many air coolers come with dust filters. Which is a handy feature, but that also means that the air cooler is only throwing the purified air at you. And not purifying the air in the room.

Apart from dust filter there are wash filters, smell filter and multi stage air filter as well.

Multi layer air filters do act as air-purification filters.

Coverage area: Many air coolers will mention how much area in sq feet that they cover and most will not. Usually the longer the air throw and higher the air delivery, it can cover more area.

Small sized air coolers can only cover areas of a small room/bed/cabin etc.

Warranty:Usually air coolers come with 1 year warranty and some provide in house repairs also. Most air cooler brands will offer 1 year warranty but do read between the fine line.  Most popular air cooler will cover all the items in air coolers but many indoor air coolers brand will only cover the motor.
