I am still working from home and the weather
during the afternoon is insanely hot. Furthermore,
my workstation is just next to the balcony.
I have an option to use the air conditioner
but it will take up a lot of electricity.
Since my goal is to save electricity and to
have a decent cooling atmosphere,
I decided to get an air cooler.
A tower fan is great but it will not
lower down the heat around you which I
will explain later. Time code is provided
in the description for your convenience.
Inside the box, you will get a
product manual and a warranty card
2 flower-shaped iceboxes
remote control with battery
4 wheels with 2 of them can be locked
The reason I choose the Midea MAC-215F
air cooler is that it’s priced reasonably.
For RM280 during the 10.10 Lazada sales,
I feel it’s a bargain as the normal
retail price is around RM300 plus.
It has a humidifying function and is also
labelled as an evaporative cooler, ionizer,
different styles of wind mode –
normal, natural and sleep mode.
A programmed timer with a maximum
of 7 hours
3 different fan speeds
a horizontal-vertical oscillating function but
for vertical, you need to
There is also a perfume box for you
to drop your favourite essential oil
on the white sponge if you want to add some
refreshing and relaxing essence to the breeze.
Moving on to the temperature, the air cooler wind
is much cooler than a normal table or tower fan.
This is because an air cooler uses
water to absorb the heat and evaporate.
With an additional ice pack being
placed to the 15L water tank,
the cool wind blowing towards you is
much more satisfying than a normal fan.
In this comparison, I will use a normal infrared
thermometer just as a sample reference of
temperature reading because I do not have a
wind thermometer to test with it. So please,
do not take this reading seriously
as this is just to give you
an idea that an air cooler breeze
temperature is lower than a tower fan.
If you see the reading, the normal table
fan is blowing the environment temperature
so if your environment is already hot, you
will not get the cool air that you wanted.
In terms of distance, it is suitable
for a small room or living room.
At Low speed, the distance of the wind can
be felt up to 1 meter away at about 60 dB.
At Medium speed, it’s about 2 meter with 65 dB
and approximately 2.4 meter or 8 feet with
67 dB at the High speed. It can go even further
but the wind is just nice for this distance
and speed. The sound meter is measured
using an app so the actual dB may vary.
As for how wide the angle of the wind can go,
the website only mentioned wide-angle so for
you to have a better reference, I placed the
air cooler 8 feet away in the middle of this
8 feet wide L-shaped sofa with fan speed at
max speed. From the left corner to the right,
you can definitely feel the cooling breeze.
In terms of maintenance, the booklet
mentioned that you need to clean the water tank,
honeycomb filter and the filter frame at least
once a month if you use it every day. Hence, an
air cooler requires more care compared to a normal
table or tower fan where you just need to
clean the dust on the fan blade and the frame.
That’s all from me on the Midea MAC-215F
and hopefully you find this review helpful.
