Honeywell Air Coolers and Air Conditioners serve a similar purpose, but how are they different? To start, Air Coolers evaporate moisture to create a cooling effect. Air Coolers produce natural, cool air through the process of water evaporation. When warm, dry air passes through a Honeywell Air Cooler, it passes through a unique Honeycomb Cooling Media where it mixes with water causing the water to evaporate and lose heat, resulting in cooler, moisturized air. Honeywell Air Coolers perform best in hot and dry climates, helping to cool and humidify the air simultaneously. Different to Air coolers, Portable Air Conditioners cool via an air conditioner compressor, and provide dehumidification by drying up ambient air.

The Evaporative Air Cooler is not a portable air conditioner as it does not use a compressor or refrigerant gas. It should not be expected to cool to the same degree as a refrigerated air conditioner. It works best in hot and dry conditions. The natural breeze and low energy consumption of an evaporative air cooler make them a popular choice for dry climates and for families looking to reduce energy costs. Air Coolers cool naturally, without a compressor or refrigerant gas, making them a more environmentally choice over air conditioning.

Both types of cooling have inherent benefits, so it is important to weigh the benefits and pick which will better suit your needs. Visit and find the perfect cooling solution for you.
