4.0 out of 5 starsDecent cooler if you know how to use it effectively
15 July 2018
I have been using the Bajaj cooler for 2 months and hence posting the review Pros:-1)Compact and portable 2) Easy mobility with the help of castor wheels 3)It gives out nice cool breeze with the water filled in
Cons: 1) the plastic screws can be replaced with metal ones 2) the plastic body joints sometimes leaves little gaps so bajaj should think of making better bodies
I have some recommendations for those who are thinking buying this cooler or any cooler
1) Always measure your room dimensions first before buying a cooler For example if you expect this cooler to cool a room of 300 square feet it wont happen but if its meant for a room 150 sq feet and below it will serve the purpose 2) this cooler doesn't comes with humidity control so what's the best way to control humidity ? whenever you run the cooler and after the pump/cooling is tuned on after sometime you will feel that the cooler is not cooling that much that it was at the beginning when you started the pump ,the reason is the humidity level of the room is saturated.. so solution for this is turn off the pump and use the cooler fan only for some time and you get cooling again .. again after some time when you feel hot you need to turn on the pump..This is how humidity control works 3) Get a extension power cord which will cost you few hundreds which will help you to move the cooler to any part of the room 4)Get a water filling pipe which you can use to fill water from the back side as filling water with bottles or mug is not recommended as it will spill water on floor 5)And you have to manually move the louvers or grill up or down to get air on top or at floor level 6) Always keep some windows open to allow cross ventilation in room
After 26 days of purchase, the fan stopped working . On calling customer care and their visit I was told the motor is not working. Surprising that a new fan motor got burnt in less than 1 months. Speaks ??? for the quality cobtrol & parameters that the company maintains.
This product is excellent for its price. 1.Location : Bangalore 2.Lessnoise,portable. 2.CROSS VENTILATION is very important. you need to open window in you room. NOT for closed rooms. 4.Body is delicate Performance is good . able to cool down 10x10 room, 20 mins. If you can use RO water that will be excellent for your cooler life and for you.
Cooling is nice and lessnoise as it has a fan when compared with blower ideal for 2 persons suitable for 100 to 150 sq ft room don’t get confused with different kind of opinions here quality n looks wise it’s fine I have no complaints over all a satisfying product
The product was good, arrived early in town, it was lightweight and easy to push and lift, Noise is too less as compared to other products which come with this price point, but in just sort of 15 days cooler suddenly stopped working while it was on, can't recognize why, but thanks to Bajaj warranty, we called customer service with the help of warranty card, and he arrived in less than 6 hours as per mentioned and changed the motor. Well now it works good, not an issue, but they should check motor while sending a new product.
First things first. This is Air Cooler and not Air Conditioner. Therefore, one should keep expectations accordingly. This works as good as any air cooler should work. 1. Any air cooler works on the principle of blowing the air through a curtain of water, due to which the air is cooled. 2. Since the air is passed though the curtain of water (pads which are being showered with water consistently), the air being blown carries a good amount of water in it. Therefore there needs to be a cross ventilation in room to let the air out. If not, then the room will be filled with water laden air and thus humidity will increase. 3. Cross ventilation helps in achieving proper cooling effect of any air cooler. And, the above is the reason for Air Coolers not being efficient in areas near to sea-shore. 4. The fan-type air cooler makes lessnoise than blower-type one. Also, the air deflection larger in comparison to blower-type. 5. Clean the water tank on weekly basis. 6. If your water supply is from bore-well or if you are living in hard water area, use vinegar to clean the water tank. Put vinegar in water till the pump is submerged and then just keep the pump running for 15-20 minutes. This will wash off the salt sediments from the cooling pads. 7. The height of the cooler is perfect as expected. Well, the size of the cooler is well mentioned under the product description. Before buying, one can always get a proper idea of the size of the cooler. If not, then rush to nearest store and see with your own eyes for better judgement. 8. 36 liters of water tank is more than sufficient. Its always better to fill the cooler daily with fresh water. Some people are complaining about water inlet being very small. It is not small. You can either put water through any bottle or you can put a pipe to fill water, both are convenient. I use big mouthed bottle. 9. Only thing is that a mosquito net could have been accommodated on the panel of cooling pads. It's not a big deal though, because cooler is going to be used indoor. 10. I have Symphony 8T cooler and this Bajaj Platini PX97, and this cooler makes less, much lessnoise. The cooler came in perfect condition and there was no damage. Even if one receives a cooler with damage, it can always be exchanged for new one under Amazon's exchange policy. Overall, I am satisfied with this cooler.
