There are many cooling options available this summer, but it’s always difficult knowing which option best suits your home and budget. Evaporative cooling is a form of cooling caused by the evaporation of water. It is suited for hot, dry climates, perfect for hot Australian summers, or other climates throughout the world with similar climates. The temperature of dry air can be dropped significantly though the transition of water to vapour and cools the air with much less energy usage than refrigeration.
Evaporative cooling replaces a lot of moisture lost in the air from excessive heat, which reduces the perceived temperature, or how hot it feels. This creates not just a cooler, but more comfortable environment for your home or office. Some cooling systems for home or business can involve large ducted systems using compressed gas for both heating and cooling, but evaporative cooling systems use electricity. This is a great solution for residences without natural gas connections, such as rural areas or high rise buildings.
In a well-insulated building, evaporative cooling can provide a cost effective solution for any home. Refrigeration uses chemicals called refrigerants, which are compressed and decompressed to heat and cooling homes and offices. With Evaporative cooling, there are very few harsh chemicals used and no coolants involved; the only coolant is water for this efficient cooling process.
Evaporative Cooling is one of the most popular air conditioning solutions available. If you would like to know more about evaporative cooling, get in touch with one of the team at Weatherworld.
