  • Yeah you are right that people get confused to choose the best as the companies provide us with many number of products. I am here to provide you with some points which you must consider before buying an air cooler. Go through the details given below to know them:

    Can any existing air cooler in home be repaired?
    You must check in your home that if any existing air cooler can be repaired. So rather than buying a new air cooler you can get the existing one repaired.

    What cooling capacity do you need?
    You must buy the air cooler according to your need like for how much area do you want a air cooler.

    Powerful air coolers
    You must buy a 5 star product as it will help to save your electricity and will also provide you with a great cooling performance. Don't go for the cheapest as they are just a kind of waste.

    There are some more points you must consider and I have mentioned them below:
    • Height of the ceiling room.
    • Fix the budget in the range of Rs. 4,500 to Rs. 12,000.
    • Choose among evaporative coolers and portable coolers.
    • You must buy the best model from a trusted brand.
    • Ensure the service centers near and the availability of repairing options.
    • Check the features to select the best.

    Some of the best air coolers in India are mentioned below:

    • Bajaj
    • Usha
    • Symphony
    • Crompton Greaves
    • Khaitan
    • Kenstar
    • Maharaja Whiteline

    These were some of the best companies to buy air coolers.


    I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.

  • This query will actually can be answered in different - at times confusing - manner by the members. Each one of us have a preconceived notion about the brands. Also choosing a better cooler will also depend on many actual aspects on ground than giving a generalized response. So rather than providing you with a list of coolers, I would prefer to give you a lot tips that can be helpful to you in choosing the cooler that suits your needs.

    Choosing the right type
    Coolers differ based on the type of operations needed. If you need a larger area to be cooled, you may need to opt for evaporative or desert type coolers. For your personalized cooling needs or smaller rooms a portable room cooler will be enough. Choose the one that meets your needs rather than going by dealer suggestions.

    Pad thickness
    Pad thickness is of utmost important for better cooling effect. Ensure that the pad thickness is at least 90 cm.

    Variable speed
    A good cooler should have the options for adjusting the fan speed. Make sure that the cooler you choose comes with the option to control speed. It will help you adjust cooling effect.

    Automatic water level controls
    The best cooler should have automatic water level controllers. This is to ensure that water is filled to preset levels and avoids flooding.

    Automatic shut off dampeners
    Ensure your new cooler has this additional feature. It will help reduce the loss of cooling effect.

    Choose proper size
    One cannot suggest a good cooler without checking your exact needs. Size depends on the area of the room to be cooled. Height of the ceiling from ground also plays an important role here. A simple formula would be CFM of cooler = (square feet area X height of the ceiling )/2.

    After paying attention to the above points, you can opt for any brand of your choice and choose the model based on above points. Go for established brands like Symphony, Bajaj or Usha.
    I am not providing a list of coolers available in the market because the choice of a cooler is totally dependent on the requirements on the ground rather than providing you a theoretical best cooler.
