Everything you need to know about Evaporative Cooling Systems

In recent years, evaporative cooling systems have become the most popular choice in Melbourne for whole of house cooling.  There are quite a few reasons why evaporative cooling has become so popular. Some of these reasons include:

  • Up to 50% lower cost to install compared to refrigerated air conditioners
  • Up to 7 times cheaper to run compare to refrigerated air conditioners
  • Allows doors and windows to be open when the evaporative cooler is in use. This keeps your home feeling fresh.
  • Lower green house emissions than most other forms of air conditioning
  • Well suited to the hot and dry summers of Melbourne
  • The air that comes into your home through the an evaporative cooler is cleaned through wet filter pads
  • Simpler to install than most other forms of air conditioning
  • There are very little in the way of moving parts - so not a lot can go wrong!

There are various ways to you can increase the efficiency of your evaporative cooler - even on a very hot Melbourne summer day! Some of these ways include:

  • Try using a timer so that the evaporative cooling system automatically switches off when it is not needed
  • Making sure that all doors and windows of the rooms in your home that you are trying to cool are open
  • Even better, open window and doors on the opposite side of the house to where there is a hot wind
  • On humid days, use the fan and switch off the water supply. This will help to keep the evaporative cooler working as efficiently as possible on humid days.
