FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Clarion > FAQ

What is the best environment to produce the most cool air? 

For optimum performance, the temperature should be 40˚C or higher and the relative humidity should be below 75%. However, Clarion evaporative coolers will reduce the temperature in almost any environment, making it more comfortable.

What is the difference between the evaporative cooling and misting system?

Misting systems spray a shower of water into the air that will collect on people, objects, equipment, floors, etc. Clarion evaporative coolers use the process of evaporation to produce cooler air, but do not produce a mist.

What is the amount of moisture produced?

An increase in humidity of approximately two to five percent is produced, depending on the temperature and humidity of the environment. This increase is not noticeable in a ventilated area where the air produced by the cooler is exhausted.

How long will the water supply last in the tank?

With no direct water source available, the water will evaporate in a filled tank within two to 10 hours of operation, depending on the water capacity of the evaporative cooler, ambient conditions, temperature and humidity. A water source for refilling the tank is recommended by the manufacturer.

How is an air cooler is different from a standard fan?

A standard ceiling fan rotates to increase circulation of air within a room so that the perspiration on your skin can evaporate more quickly. However, the cooling effect is limited. Fans cannot operate in the closed environment. If ambient temperatures are above the body’s natural temperature (37℃), a rotating fan will heat the body instead of cooling it.

Air coolers, on the other hand, have a tangible cooling effect on the ambient air. By introducing moisture into the air and circulating it effectively, a clarion air cooler can lower the room temperature significantly. While a circulating fan only affects skin perceptible temperature, an air cooler can actually lower indoor temperature by nearly 5℃. Air coolers work on the principle of evaporative cooling, which is a more reliable and consistent technique than circulation. Air coolers are also a lot quieter than standard fans.

Do air cooler required lot of electricity to run? 

Air cooling is the most energy-efficient cooling technology available. Operating costs for an air cooler are 1/10th of a traditional air conditioner. A 2.2-ton split air conditioning unit can consume 2200 watts an hour. A Clarion air cooler consumes nearly the same amount of energy as a standard ceiling fan. Clarion air cooling units require energy in the range of 105 watts/hr to 255 watts/hr.

Although the energy consumption of a ceiling fan and air cooler is similar, the cooling effect is considerably different. Air coolers can cover a larger area, actually cool the air, and work noiselessly.

Can i operate a clarion cooler on an inverter?

Yes. All Clarion air coolers work on inverters. Ensure that your inverter is appropriately rated for a sine wave. The sine wave is the standard type of electricity supplied by all utility companies. All air coolers and most inverters are designed to work on this standard.
