Why Evaporative Cooling is the Most Cost Effective Way to Cool
by: Belinda J. Darling
Evaporative cooling is the most cost effective way to cool your home, but theres a few different types available on the market, so take the time to find which best suits your needs. It’s pretty simple, water evaporates and cools the air, which is called phase change cooling. It basically only involves a fan, filter and water is the refrigerant, which means no gas compression, making evaporative cooling energy efficient. This style of cooling is perfect for the drier Australian climate because it increases the air humidity.
Ducted evaporative cooling involves a central cooling unit that connects with a ducted system. It allows for cleaner and more filtered cool air for you home, but a more powerful fan is required to help push the cool air through your home. Ducted cooling will provide comfort to your entire home, whereas other forms of evaporative cooling are limited to a single room.
Window mounted units are very effective at cooling a single room quickly and effectively. Unlike the portable units they can’t be moved, but they’re easy to maintain and provide energy efficient cooling. They are a popular and cost effective cooling solution for large buildings. The unit can sit either inside or outside the home or office, so it’s versatility is great.
A portable evaporative cooling unit is a perfect choice for renters who move around a lot. Taking your air conditioning with you when you move is an excellent way to make sure your living spaces are cool and comfortable. These units need water placed in them, so some maintenance is needed for them.
