It gives superior performance with the lowest sound which is why is it recommended for the bedroom. Low sound also allows you to use this air cooler if you have a baby at home.
Coming to negative aspects or more so concerns that you might face while using this Air Cooler is the body. The cooler’s body is delicate which we feel is to make it lighter and hence portable. And also the water inlet compartment that allows you to fill water is small, making it necessary to use a pipe or hose to fill water.
All these aspects are not deal breakers and the air cooler is one of the bests in the market.
The Bajaj Platini PX97 air cooler comes with 100 Watt fan that is made up of high-quality plastic material which creates less noise and is also lighter in weight.
Bajaj claims that the air cooler has 30 feet air throw, this is a very tall claim for the cooler of this size and actual usage sees a reduced number of around 15-20 feet. For a small to medium size room, the air throw is powerful. It has a CFM of 2000-1500 cubic meters/hr of airflow, which is quite good for this range.

This air cooler like any normal cooler is easy to use. Fill water using a pipe in the inlet, up to the maximum capacity. Switch on the air cooler and start the fan using the dial provided. There is another dial control to switch the pump on to give you the cooling effect and simultaneously start the rotation of direction blades.
For optimum usage, keep the cooler near the window and allow the air to exit from the opposite side of the window to give you cross ventilation. Most of the coolers function well in cross ventilation.

But all the coolers require some maintenance for optimum functioning, remove water from the cooler when not in use, or change the water every 3-4 days to prevent the foul smell. There is a water draining hole provided which lets you drain all the water. Also, clean the honeycomb pads once in a month to remove dust and other particles.
Use a normal wet cloth to clean the water storage tank and use water and cloth to clean the pads. Pads are easily removable using the plastic lock behind.

The company claims it can be used in coastal regions although we do not suggest using it in high humid regions. It can be used in low to medium humid regions and requires you to add ice water into the cooler.
