Simple Guide on How to Change your Evaporative Cooler Filters

October 11, 2017

A state-of-the-art evaporative cooler uses several filters to ensure your overheated body receives a cool breeze and nothing else. There are water filters inside the unit to remove liquid impurities. Meanwhile, fitted air filters prevent dirt and debris from entering that chilled breeze. Here's a simple guide on how to change those filters, a set of instructions that also guarantees a pristine water supply inside your evaporative cooler.

Simple Warehouse Cooling Problems and Solutions

September 28, 2017

A warehouse on a busy and hot summer day can feel almost sweltering -- at least if it is improperly cooled. Somewhere along the way we accepted the fact that warehouses are not supposed to be comfortable places. Busy, yes, but not comfortable. This line of thinking creates an unpleasant work environment that can actually be avoided with minimal hassle and investment. We are going to look at a few common cooling problems that warehouses face and some of the low cost, energy efficient solutions that can completely solve them.

Common Misconceptions about Evaporative Coolers

September 11, 2017

Building managers routinely underestimate evaporative cooling appliances. Home owners and farmers are also guilty of this blunder. All-in-all, many of us are dazzled by chemical cooling technology, so we've allowed ourselves to be led astray by untrue claims. These are the common misconceptions about evaporative coolers, the "mythconceptions" we're about to bust. First, off, these units are not mist-heavy appliances.

Evaporative Coolers: Cooling Warehouses The Cheaper Way

August 31, 2017

Building managers experience nasty headaches when they balance cost against cooling inside a warehouse. They take one look at the sizable floor space and can't help calculating the amount of cooling energy required to offset the heat load. It can be done, obviously, but can this goal be achieved without incurring a ballooning energy bill? With cost in mind, cheaper warehouse cooling methods can trust in evaporative coolers.

Agricultural Industry Ventilation and Cooling and Its Impact to Animals and Produce

August 8, 2017

If the evaporative cooling process is nature's own method of nurturing animals and produce, why can't we recruit the same process? In livestock sheds and commercial greenhouses, nature's cooling mechanism would convince the occupants of these enclosures that they were still out in the wild.

Why Should You Buy Australia Made Evaporative Coolers versus Chinese Brands?

July 26, 2017

A review of multiple evaporative cooling appliances, as tendered by Australian and Chinese manufacturers, might reveal a few worrying product discrepancies. Sure, the features listed on the brochures by both national cooling authorities look generally identical. Powerful fans, water-absorbent media, and brawny electrical pumps are discussed at some length in their branded product literature. Still, something feels slightly off, something that suggests a quality mismatch.

Sealing Evaporative Cooling Vents from Draughts

July 14, 2017

We'd be neglecting our energy saving responsibilities if we didn't treat evaporative cooling vents with the same critical eye we reserve for the appliance heart. Tasked with important cooling conveyance duties, these air discharge outlets become the weak link in the environmental control chain when they're not sealed properly. Prone to draughts, the vents will corrupt energy efficiency gains unless corrective action is taken.

What Makes Evaporative Coolers Energy Efficient?

June 27, 2017

There are technical terms that explain exactly what makes evaporative coolers energy efficient. They dutifully relate heat conservation equations, describe enthalpy conditions, and generally focus on the science that makes the evaporative process so effective, even when the mercury level balloons upward during a heat wave.

Outdoor Cooling: Differences between Evaporative Coolers and Mist Systems

June 13, 2017

Anyone can install a basic mist system. Even garden sprinklers can be repurposed as a misting mechanism, although the lack of a recirculating feature would send your water bill skyrocketing. Meanwhile, evaporative coolers check off all the boxes in the pros column, including that all-important recirculation feature. Here, take a look at a few typical "misting" examples so that you can see the differences between the two cooling technologies.

Sizing Evaporative Coolers Gives More Benefits for Energy Efficiency and Maximum Cooling

January 24, 2017

An augmented water pump increases the energy efficiency of an evaporative cooler significantly, as does a subsequent widening of hose diameter. The water flows unimpeded, maximum cooling power is realised, and the room spreads its cool breeze. Still, this methodology will plateau because it's not accounting for external conditions.
