Bajaj PCF 25 DLX Room Air Cooler Review
Summers in India can be excruciating. To beat the heat, most people equip their homes with air conditioners (AC) and air coolers. ACs are good for humid climates while air coolers suit arid climes. The reason behind this is that ACs suck out the moisture from air and make it drier. Air coolers, on the other hand, infuse air with moisture and make it more humid.
In this segment, we are going to talk about the Bajaj PCF 25 DLX air cooler, a top-selling domestic room/personal air cooler for medium-sized indoor spaces. It is portable and features castor wheels for easy mobility. It has multi-directional air supply and adjustable speed. It is energy-efficient and can run on inverter power in the event of a power cut.
Let us go over the design and usage aspects of the air cooler.
Design And Usage
The Bajaj PCF 25 DLX is a personal air cooler. It is designed for small to medium rooms, and has a coverage area of 150 ft2. It is excellent for spot cooling and for cooling small areas within a large room. You can place it next to your bed in the bedroom or couch in the living room and enjoy close-range cooling. You can also place it in your office cubicle for personal cooling.
The device has a honeycomb cooling media. The cooling pads are placed on three sides of the cooler for maximum evaporation. They can be removed and washed as well. They are long-lasting and are specially developed for faster cooling.
The cooler has a 9-inch fan that pumps out cool air. It has a 4-way air deflection system for spreading air throughout the room. It has rotating louvers that distribute the air in 4 directions so that every corner is adequately cooled. Air-throw distance of the appliance is 18 feet. This is sufficient to cover an average-sized bedroom or office cabin. The air speed of the cooler can be regulated between 3 levels. You can adjust it according to your comfort between low, medium and high.
The Bajaj cooler has a 15-liter water tank which is a good size for a room air cooler. When filled to the brim, it holds up to 24 liters. There is a water inlet at the back of the device for pouring water into the tank. There is a drain plug too for expelling excess water while cleaning the cooler. An automatic water level indicator shows you the current water level. It allows you to keep track of the amount of water in the tank and refill it when necessary.
The air cooler has low noise. It is made for indoor use and hence it does not produce disturbing sounds. It has a power consumption of 80 watts and comes with a 1.5-meter power cord. It can run on inverter power which means you get uninterrupted service even during power cuts. Rated voltage of the machine is 230 volts and rated frequency is 50 Hz.
The device has a smart white plastic body with wheels for easier movement. It has urbane aesthetics for blending in with the décor of modern homes. There is a circular air vent in front for dispensing cool air. On the other three sides there are the three honeycomb cooling pads through which the machine takes in air from outside. Two bright blue knobs on the right hand top corner allow you to manage the cooling speed and power.
The Bajaj PCF 25 DLX is compact in size and fits narrow spaces. It weighs 6.5 kg, and measures 365mm (length) x 330mm (breadth) x 705mm (height). The cooler has a warranty of one year.
For best performance we advise you to place the cooler near an open window or open door so that it is able to pull in fresh hot air from outside. If such placement is not possible, make sure your room is well ventilated so that the stale air is removed and fresh air from outside has a chance to enter the room. This is very important for the effective functioning of the cooler.
This appliance is suitable for all kinds of climates. It can be used in dry climates and coastal regions with comparable results. It functions well in humid weather and is ideal for cities and towns by the sea.
