What Makes This Kind of Cooling System Different
The difference between a standard AC and an evaporative cooler is the method they use to draw heat from the indoor air. The conventional central air conditioner circulated a chemical refrigerant between two sets of coils. The refrigerant evaporates indoors, which draws heat from the air, and then releases the heat outdoors when it condenses. A compressor puts the refrigerant under pressure so it circulates.
An evaporative cooler uses water to remove heat. The cooler, which is usually installed on top of a home, draws hot air into wit a fan and runs the air over damp pads kept moist by a water pump. The air loses heat to the cooler water—much the same way air blowing over water feels cooler—and then continues into the ventilations system.
Benefits of Going with Evaporative Cooling
Why might you want to invest in an evaporative cooler installation? The two main reasons are energy efficiency and to combat dry air. A standard air conditioner needs a large amount of electricity to power the compressor in addition to the fans. An evaporative cooler only needs electricity to power the fans and water pumps. The difference in power use can be enormous. Because water moisture enters the air as it passes through the cooler, the system helps to raise indoor humidity levels. For homes that suffer from dry air, an evaporative cooler can be helpful.
But not all homes will receive these benefits. Please consult with us when it’s time for an evaporative cooler system replacement or installation to see if you home is a good fit.
