An evaporative cooler, also known as a swamp cooler, is a cooling device that lowers the temperature of the surrounding air by evaporating water, or by passing it through frozen water bottles. It is an energy-efficient alternative to traditional air conditioners in certain climates. Certainly, it’s a nice option if you don’t want to pay those gigantic electricity bills as the summer gets hotter and hotter. In the Aldi Finds section, there is a cool option (pun intended) for a price you won’t be able to find in another store, and for a fraction of the price of an air conditioner equipment.
This Aldi exclusive Easy Home evaporative air cooler works like this: it’s a fan with a compartment for three ice packs. When the fan draws warm air from outside into the cooler, it passes through the packs, causing the water to evaporate. As water evaporates, it absorbs heat from the air, which results in a drop in temperature. The cooled air is then blown back into the room or space being cooled.
Aldi exclusive: low-cost air cooler
Compared to air conditioners, evaporative coolers consume significantly less energy. This is because they do not rely on energy-intensive refrigeration cycles. Instead, they utilize the natural process of evaporation, which requires less electricity. Evaporative coolers also do not use chemical refrigerants, making them more environmentally friendly.
The Easy Home portable evaporative air cooler from Aldi comes with 3 fan speeds (low, medium, and high), 3 fan modes (normal, natural, and sleep), and a timer function for you to go to bed without worrying about it: you could set it to turn off in 30 minutes, 1, 2 and 4 hours.
It also comes with a remote control and the three ice packs to cool off the circulating water. This is such a nice addition for this burning-hot summer, and also an eco-friendly option since, you know, the production of energy in the United States is not always clean. You’ll be able to get this air cooler in the Aldi Finds section for only $49.99. Now, being in the Finds means they don’t offer online shopping or delivery for this, so you gotta spot it in the store.
How to keep your house during the hot summer days
Proper insulation plays a significant role in keeping your home cool. Use reflecting, thick curtains that keep the light out during the hot, sunny hours. Use the windows that are not exposed to direct sunlight to cool off the building. If you could have cross air circulation, that’s even better.
Creating shade outdoors can significantly impact the temperature inside your home. Installing awnings or pergolas over windows can block direct sunlight and reduce heat gain. Planting trees and greenery strategically can provide natural shade and will make your home looking green, fresh, and nice.
