5 Air Coolers In Malaysia Under RM500

Many places in Malaysia are experiencing Level 1 heat wave.


With temperatures recently soaring between 35 and 37 degrees Celsius in many states of Malaysia, including Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and Johor Bahru, there are more reasons to stay indoors to keep ourselves cool.  

However, staying indoors alone may not be the answer to keeping us cool and comfortable. Cooling devices like an air cooler present an efficient and portable solution. Due to their portability, they can be easily moved around the house or room to be positioned closer to us to enjoy direct cooling, as opposed to ceiling fans or air-conditioners.

What Are Air Coolers? 

Like air-conditioners, air coolers also aim to release cool air into their surrounding environment. However, the mechanics may differ in that air coolers try to fan hot air towards a water-soaked pad. When the air passes through the pad, the water evaporates and becomes the cool air that we enjoy. On the other hand, air conditioners use a refrigerant chemical to turn hot air into cool dry air. 

For the air cooler to work, you will need to fill its water tank with water or cold water for maximum breeze. 

There are a few types of air coolers from the larger and more powerful tower air coolers to portable air coolers that are smaller in size for easy mobility. The larger tower air coolers are usually used in larger spaces like restaurants.  

Another type of common air cooler is the desert air cooler, which is suitable for use in commercial spaces like factories where there’s immense heat and dryness. 

In this article, we will focus on portable air coolers that are more suitable for personal use. These portable air coolers come in compact sizes and have wheels attached at the bottom for moving around.
