Ducted evaporative cooling comprises of a central cooling unit, connected to a series of outlets. Positioned strategically throughout the house, these outlets, or ducts, are installed in the ceiling while the cooling unit is installed on top of the roof. The cooling unit draws in fresh air from outside your house (the hotter the air is to begin with, the better the cooling effect). As it passes through moistened pads, the air is cooled and filtered before flowing through the duct work and into your rooms.
Why should I choose Evaporative Cooling instead of Refrigerated Cooling?
Many people prefer evaporative cooling because, typically, it is less expensive to install, run and maintain. It provides 100% fresh air rather than recycled air. Air cooled by water means it won’t dry out the air or irritate your eyes or throat. Windows/doors can be left open, allowing you to enjoy outdoor living.
How much water will the evaporative unit use ?
The amount of water an evaporative cooler uses depends on the evaporation rate of the coolers pads. The more water the cooler evaporates the more cooling potential the cooler has. The evaporation rate varies depending on the outdoor weather conditions, the size of the cooler, the speed of the coolers fan, the velocity of the air through the pads and the condition and type of the filter pad material. In addition to the cooler evaporating water.
How cool is cool?
The degree of cooling available from any type of air conditioning is dependent on the outside weather conditions. Your evaporative cooler works best on hot, dry days. After all, that’s when you require the most relief. 27 degrees Celsius indoor design temperature is typical for Evaporative Cooling, however, it cannot be guaranteed as cooler performance is determined by the prevailing outdoor Temperature/weather conditions.
