Evaporative Cooling

What Is Evaporative Cooling?

Evaporative cooling is one of the most efficient ways for you to cool your home. They use far less electricity than refrigerated systems, making them environmentally friendly and more cost-effective to run. As they have fewer mechanical parts than other options, they are also easier to maintain, which cuts down on maintenance bills over the life of your system.

An evaporative system draws ambient air into the roof-mounted unit, passing through wet pads collecting moisture. The air is cooled through an evaporation process, then dispersed around your home through ceiling mounted vents. The system flushes the warm air outside through your open doors and windows as the cool air moves in.

How Does Evaporative Cooler Works?

Evaporative cooling systems consist of three main components: a pump, a fan, and a series of moistened pads. The pump circulates water from a reservoir onto the pads, where it evaporates and cools the air passing through. The fan then distributes the cooled air throughout your home, providing consistent cooling without the use of refrigerants or compressors.

Evaporative Cooling

Based on an electricity tariff of 31.9c/kWh. This is based on a typical Melbourne peak tariff, but does not include any pay on time discount. Note that the evaporative coolers will also use water, and the cost of the water is not included in this table. Actual costs for your house will depend on the area cooled, how long you run the cooling for, your thermostat settings, how well insulated and shaded the house is, your energy tariffs and your local climate.

What Are The Running Costs Of Evaporative Cooling?

Energy Efficiency:

Evaporative cooling consumes significantly less energy than traditional air conditioning systems, making it a cost-effective cooling solution for your home.

Fresh Air:

Unlike air conditioning systems that recirculate the same air, evaporative cooling continuously brings in fresh outdoor air, improving indoor air quality and reducing the buildup of indoor pollutants.

Environmentally Friendly:

Evaporative cooling systems use natural processes and consume less electricity than traditional air conditioners, making them environmentally friendly and reducing your carbon footprint.

Effective Cooling:

Evaporative cooling is highly effective in dry climates, providing rapid and efficient cooling even in extreme heat conditions.

Evaporative Cooling FAQ's

An Evaporative Cooler can potentially lower the ambient temperature by up to 7-10 °C. But it depends on the air temperature, water temperature in the evaporative cooler and most importantly the humidity level in your room that may affect the efficiency of an evaporative cooler.

For optimal performance, an evaporative cooler works best in dry climates! In other words, it works well in Melbourne because Melbourne is relatively less humid.

Evaporative cooler relies on constantly supplying 100% fresh & clean air into your home, the air does not recirculate through your home.

Filtered & humidified air also helps individuals who suffer from respiratory difficulties and allergies problems.

Therefore, it is no doubt the healthiest choice for cooling in Melbourne! And regular annual service is recommended.

Yes you do.

Evaporative Cooling relies on the natural method of replacing the air in the home to provide cooling. A general rule of thumb, each room with an outlet should have a window open approx. 100mm for air relief. Or the other simple equation is to aim creating opening area twice the area of the outlets opening.
