Do Evaporative Coolers Need Winterizing?

June 12, 2018

Winterizing, an action that prevents appliances from being caught off-guard by the cold, does apply to evaporative coolers. In plain English, that efficient cooling mechanism relies on water. The liquid is stored inside the appliance, right inside a special reservoir. If a cold snap drops below zero, that water will freeze and expand, which means the parts will fracture and incur serious damage. Look, the mercury is dropping right now.

The Importance of Accurate Speed Control in Portable Evaporative Coolers

March 29, 2018

Think of accurate speed control as the performance governor on a portable evaporative cooler. The pads in the system are wet. Subsequently, vapour enthalpy draws fluid from an onboard reservoir. Meanwhile, a fan is using its angularly fixed blades to cut the air and insert that evaporative substance. In effect, the whole process is at the mercy of several thermodynamic forces. Fan speed control injects the appliance with appliance-regulating power.
