Evaporative cooling is not exactly a new idea, however, for some people, it is something they have never heard of before ever. Evaporative coolers are like your typical air conditioners and portable coolers and their purpose is to cool the indoor environment and space in any setting.
First thing you would ask it how evaporative coolers actually work. Well, evaporative cooling takes inspiration from the idea of perspiration and cools the arm air inside the room by cooling it using moisture. It takes in warm and stale air with the help of fans and then cools it using moisturized pads – damped using cold water – and lets it out again which reduces the overall temperature of the room by around 20 degrees Fahrenheit.
Evaporative coolers are best used in hot and dry areas which offer the ideal conditions for their use. They can also be used during humid and hot conditions but that would be less than ideal. However, if you are employing evaporative cooling systems and efficient cooling solutions at your residence or office, you should a few things about it which make it a lucrative option for anyone.
Less Energy Consumption
Evaporative coolers consume a lot less energy than any other option, especially traditional air conditioners. On average, if you use an average sized evaporative cooler for half a day i.e. 12 hours, it would only consume as much electricity as needed to keep some moisture pads and some water cool. As you can expect this is way more efficient and simultaneously, economical too.
Low Expenses Throughout
From the start till the end, i.e. from the moment you buy an evaporative cooler till after you have used it for some time, it saves you a lot of money. First, the price of one unit is very economical compared to traditional air conditioner, and secondly, the units themselves are so energy efficient as we mentioned above, that the overall cost of electricity and other things adds up to very little comparatively.
Evaporative coolers don’t release toxic agents, dust or other pollutants in the air because theirs is a natural process. They are very friendly to the environment in that way. You also have to remember that they use up a lot less energy in the first place which automatically makes them good for environment.
Not Always Airtight
If you have a window open in the room, it actually complements the work of an evaporative cooler as it has a fresh supply of air to cool down compared to traditional air conditioners which can only work effectively in an almost airtight environment.
Evaporative coolers also require very little maintenance. If you are consistent with your rudimentary cleaning, shut off and power up the coolers in the suggested way, you should have no reason to worry about the performance of the unit or a thorough cleaning session for a long time. if you can clean the filter, and water curtains every couple of weeks then it is even better since that removes the possibility of dust or bacteria infecting your environment.
