Bajaj Frio 23 Liter Air Cooler
Summers in India are becoming steadily hotter, and while air conditioners might seem like the obvious go-to solution, it must be borne in mind that they cause air pollution. ACs cool air using chemicals like CFC and HCFC which are known air pollutants, and have been linked with depletion of the ozone layer.
An environment-friendly alternative to an AC is an air cooler. They use water to lower the air temperature and do not generate any polluting waste products. They consume very less electricity and are reasonably priced.
In this section, we are going to talk about the Bajaj Frio room air cooler. It is one of the highest-selling personal air coolers in India. It is built for compact homes and offices, and has superb cooling and air delivery capacity.
Let us discuss the design, usage and technology of the Bajaj Frio in more detail.
Design And Usage
The Bajaj Frio is a top-performing air cooler in the personal cooler category. It has a cooling area of 150 ft2 which makes it perfect for small rooms and office cabins. It can be used for spot cooling for cooling a small part of a large room. It is suitable for all kinds of climates, including places with high humidity. It has a special Humidity Control function which is very useful in coastal areas for offsetting the effects of humidity.
The Frio has a tank capacity of 23 liters. It holds 23 liters when filled to the brim and 21 liters when filled to the overflow mark. The cooler has a durable honeycomb cooling medium. The pads are built with Chill Trap technology for extra-fast evaporation and low pressure drop.
The pads are constructed in such a manner that the water molecules face the incoming hot air for rapid evaporation and better cooling. The pads are installed on 3 sides of the cooler enclosure for maximum air intake and surface area for evaporation.
The pads are also removable for hassle-free cleaning. Remove the pads once in 3 or 4 months and rinse them with tap water to wash off the accumulated debris and hard water deposits. Allow them to dry fully before fixing them back again.
The air cooler has a powerful blower with a blade size of 7 inches. It blows out the moisture-laden air through motorized louvers. The louvers have a smart 4-way air deflection mechanism for a more even air distribution and less energy consumption.
The cooler can project air at bed level so you can enjoy a good night’s sleep. It also has an ice chamber on top of the cabinet for adding ice cubes for icy cool air. The air speed of the Frio is adjustable between 3 levels: low, medium and high.
The Frio has an automatic water level indicator. It lets you keep track of the water in the tank and refill it on time so it never empties out. There is an overflow valve for draining out excess water and a drain plug for removing old murky water.
The body of the cooler is made from sturdy corrosion-free material. It is also shock-free, and hence, safer than other air coolers. The Bajaj Frio is portable and comes with castors for easy mobility. It allows you the freedom to change the position of the cooler as and when you like.
The air cooler has an average air delivery of 1000m3/h and a peak air delivery of 2600m3/h. It has an air-throw distance of 30 feet. The motor makes a maximum of 1350 rotations per minute (RPM). All in all, the device has an impressive air delivery and air-throw for small spaces.
The Frio can run on inverter power during power outages. It has a noiseless system so your indoor environment stays peaceful. It is also power-efficient and consumes just 140 watts. Rated voltage of the cooler is 230 volts and rated frequency is 50 Hz.
The product has a warranty period of 1 year. It has white plastic body with blue knobs on top for controlling the fan, louvers and pump functions. The cabinet measures 44.5 cm (length) x 34 cm (breadth) x 78 cm (height). It weighs 8 kg.
