Air Cooler

So i bought this thingamajig called 'air cooler' which uses water vapor to cool the fan breeze. My first plan was to get a .5hp aircon but the Ilocano in me rejected the idea.

It is manufactured by Asahi. There is another manufacturer, Union but it was not available and it does not have an ionizer. The ionizer purifies the air.

The fan comes with two ice packs that you put with water inside its body. I have yet to use it with ice since the dorm suddenly pulled out the ref i was supposed to rent - without notice (grrr). With water at room temperature though, the fan blows cooler air than my Asahi wall fan. The breeze can reach further as well. Only at 55watts. So im happy.

I've surfed the net and reviews are so far convincing. A few people said it was useless though but maybe they live in the desert. I'll buy tube ice from Rustan's later and i'll see if its worth my Php 3370.

was it worth it?

Hindi. Kasi hindi ko pa nagamit yung ice pack. Wala pa kong ref. Hehe.

Seems like an aircon would've been more convenient. Effort pa para magyelo ka, diba? Haha.

Rianne said...

Convenience at 6 times the electric bill and damage to the environment with the use of freon. And we paid pay at least 500 a month for ilaw, electric fan, and laptop lang no. how much more pag aircon.

And its not so hard naman to put the ice pack in the freezer and put it inside the compartment di ba?

Defend your purchase Rianne. Hahaha.

How was the air cooler? I'm about to buy one tomorrow at ace hardware. Does it have to be in front of you to feel the cold air?
