In the Vidharbha region of Maharashtra, India, the months of June and July are typically very important because the high relative humidity and dry bulb temperature are uncomfortable for people. The "Modified Air-cooler" was developed in an effort to meet human needs while taking into account comfort and affordability. Modified air- cooler testing has been done as part of an exploratory inquiry. It has been noted that the DBT values for indoor and outdoor environments vary by 2.86°C on average. As a result of the mud pot's natural evaporation process, the temperature inside the room is cooled more effectively than it is outside. Additionally, the WBT measurements for indoor and outdoor conditions vary by 2.62°C. It has been noted that there is a 2.2% variation in relative humidity when compared to the outside environment, which suggests that the current system is not responsible for the increase in humidity that occurs in the month of June and July, also the system is not contributing in global warming which is a major findings of this research.
