Q: What advantages does evaporative cooling have compared to refrigerated cooling systems?
A: Evaporative cooling will provide substantial energy savings over refrigerated air units. The simplicity of the design allows low maintenance requirements. The evaporative cooler will provide fresh, filtered air. The outside air that has been cooled will blow the stale inside air out. With the substantial savings on energy and the air constantly changing, the industrial / commercial evaporative cooler is ideally suited for area cooling or spot cooling in factories, laundries, churches, schools, agri-businesses, restaurants and many other applications.
Q: How much water do I put in?
The amount of water required will vary depending on the size of the unit you own. To help determine the correct level, each evaporative cooler is equipped with a water level indicator. It can be found on bottom sump of the unit. Add water until the indicator shoes that the water reservoir is filled. Water will leak from the unit if it is overfilled.
Q: At start-up, the air has a slight odor?
Occasionally an evaporative cooler may give off a slight odor when first put into use. To eliminate this odor, run the unit for an hour, drain all the water from the tank and add fresh water. If odor persists repeat the above procedure until it is eliminated.
Q: How often do I have to fill the mobile unit?
The length of time will vary depending on the dryness of the air and the speed at which the cooler is running. Typically water supplied should last from for one day, or half day, because we design the tank for 8 hours use or 4 hours consumption.
Q: Can the pump run dry?
The unit can be safely run without water in the tank. It will cause no harm to the cooler or the water pump. Never choose cooler with submersible pump that usually used in glass fish bowl. It will burn while lack of water and cause danger.
Q: How do I clean my pads?
Remove the back or top of the unit following the instructions in the operating manual. Note: Be sure to unplug the cooler before you access the inside of the unit. Remove the pad from the unit or back panel. Rinse the pad with fresh water using a hose or soaking the pad in a tub until the mineral deposits disappear. You may want to change the tub water occasionally to accelerate the cleaning process. Allow the pad to sun dry. Reattach the pad to the cooler back panel or reinstall inside the cooler. Replace the top or back panel on the cooler.
Q: How often do I clean my pads?
Pads should be cleaned at least once a season prior to storing for the winter. In hard water areas, cleaning may be required more frequently. Periodic, visual examination is required. Remove the back or top of the cooler following the instructions in the operating manual. Look at the pads. If they show signs of heavy mineral deposits they will need to be cleaned.
Note: Be sure to unplug the unit before you access the inside.
