Imagine that you are leaving home. The house you had always wanted. Or, imagine you're doing remodeling. Everything is in order: new finishes, new room, new kitchen ... but when you have to choose between an evaporative air cooler (or 'cooler') and a portable air conditioner, you have a difficulty that, it seems, you're not going to get out.

Many say that a 'cooler' and a portable air conditioner should have the same functionality. The larger error cannot exist in this affirmation. Therefore, and to make your decision a little easier, we tell you about the main differences between these two devices.

First things first Basic Differences

To be able to decide between one and another device, the first one must know the main difference between the two; explained in the simplest way possible.

  • The basic principle of a 'cooler' is the use of water in the air cooling process. Hot air from the room entering the appliance passes through the honeycomb cooling medium. The water is pumped from the tank and poured over the honeycomb; this allows the cooling medium to absorb the heat from the air, cooling and humidifying the environment. The air, already cold, is forced to leave the unit with the help of a fan. This process does not require a compressor.
  • Portable air conditioners work a little differently. The condenser, compressor, and evaporator are housed in the same compact unit. The air is filtered, cooled and dehumidified in the same device. These compressor-based refrigerant systems are air-cooled, which means they use air for heat exchange, in the same way as a standard car or air conditioner. The system dehumidifies the air as it cools. A flexible exhaust air hose sends heat to the outside.

Open or closed place?

It is important to take into account the areas in which you want to place the devices to get the most out of what you decide to buy.

  • The coolers, for example, cool the air in the room and work best in open areas.
  • While portable air conditioners cool the air and circulate it and work better in closed areas.

Dry weather, humid weather

Many of us make the mistake of not taking into account weather of our city when choosing a cooling system for our home and it is one of the things we should keep in mind.

  • Coolers are the best option if you live in dry climates, where the air is hot and the humidity is low. By working with water, they have the additional benefit of conditioning the air by adding moisture, which translates into greater comfort for people.
  • However, in climates with high humidity, the benefits of the use of 'coolers' are very limited and that is why it is recommended to replace them with portable air conditioners because the air that this device will grant to the rooms will be drier and will compensate the humidity sensation of the place.


If you are one of those who cares about having home appliances that do little or very little damage to the environment, the 'coolers' are for you. They are considered more ecological because they use only water and non-refrigerants as do portable air conditioners.

However, nowadays in the market offered in their "eco-friendly" version for both air cooler and air conditioner in Nagpur. Colder and air conditioning are two types of home appliances that show some differences between them even though they are used for the same purpose.


The air conditioners constitute 5% of the energy bills. Air coolers use water, which has an automatic cooling effect, reducing electricity bills by up to 75%.

Even so, today there are already both 'coolers' and portable air conditioners that are low energy consumption.

As you may have seen, choosing a cooling system for your home or office is not an easy task; many aspects must be taken into account when normally we only limit ourselves to the cost or design of the device. Even so, we hope that this small guide has been of great help and has been able to clarify many of your doubts.
