Summers are not very far. So you must find something to protect you from the summer heat. AC is not a feasible option for majority of Indians due to its high purchasing cost as well as maintenance cost. Moreover, it adds a significant amount every month into your electricity bill. That’s why most of Indians still prefer Coolers instead of going for an Air Conditioner.
Buying a cooler on Flipkart or Amazon is not an easy task. You will have to research a lot and read tons of reviews before finalizing the best cooler for yourself. Moreover, majority of the coolers will have an average buyers’ rating of 3.5 stars that makes people skeptical about them.
