Everyday Maintenance

  • When performing maintenance on your evaporative air cooler, always switch off the air cooler and unplug it from the electrical source.
  • At least once a week, drain the water tank completely and refill it with fresh water. This will greatly reduce mineral deposits and help to extend the life of the honeycomb cooling media.
  • To clean the media, remove and rinse it with warm water. If you notice any buildup, you can use a soft brush on the media once it’s dry to clean it.
    • The frequency of how often you clean the honeycomb cooling media will depend on air and water quality as well as running time.
