Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, your Coolbreeze Air Conditioner has a unique exhaust function that allows you to remove odours such as cooking smells, pet smells and generally freshen up the house even during the winter months.
Evaporative Air Conditioning works on exchanging all the air in the home every 2 minutes with fresh filtered air from outside. Clearly this volume of air needs to be released outside so windows or doors will need to be opened.
On high humidity day, it is important to make sure that there is enough air-flow through the house. If you notice dampness make sure that the windows are open to maintain the air-flow.
The CoolCel filter material can give off an unusual smell when the air-con is used for the first time. The best thing to do is open up as many windows and doors as possible and run the Air Conditioner on high – the smell shouldn’t last too long.
Water usage varies according to your use of the Air Conditioner and also on the relative humidity of the day, however we can say that Coolbreeze uses less water while maintaining the water quality than any other brand available. To avoid a build-up of impurities, many Air Conditioners use a bleed off system that uses 15-18 litre per hour (that’s 180 litres for 10 hours use compared to less than 30 litres for the Coolbreeze water management system).
As the Air Conditioner operates it evaporates some water, this leaves the impurities in the water inside the water reservoir. If left to build, these salts can be damaging the CoolCel filter panels, so every 5 hours, the Coolbreeze unit replaces all the high salinity water with fresh water.
Every time your Coolbreeze Air Conditioner is turned off it completely drains all the water and impurities from the unit to ensure that no water is let in the unit. The next time you start your Coolbreeze you can rest assured that it is using fresh clean water, not water that has been sitting there for several days (or all winter) as a breeding ground for mosquitos etc.
The water drained from the unit will have increased salinity levels. Generally this doesn’t present problems in the garden but if in doubt, check with your local nursery for advice.
You will notice many Air Conditioners covered with bags and tarpaulins during the winter months. This is to reduce drafts into the house and also to prevent heat loss from heaters. Coolbreeze offers an optional 4-Seasons weather–seal that automatically closes off the unit every time it is turned off. There is no need to climb on the roof and cover the unit and next spring, on the first hot day of the season, your Coolbreeze is all ready to go.
