An evaporative air cooler is a type of air conditioning system that works by utilising evaporation to cool down air temperatures. Once the water evaporates, its liquid form will eventually turn into gas. During evaporation, the particles with the highest energy leave the water, therefore significantly reducing the temperature.  Aside from the decrease in temperature, the use of evaporative coolers can fix temperature variations and save energy all at the same time.  Here is how it is possible.

In general, the machine will consist of a fan, a thick pad, a water reservoir and some additional controls for better results. The fan draws dry, hot air into the machine and across the cooler pads. These thick cooler pads absorb water from the reservoir and utilises their many layers to increase the surface area. As the hot air crosses the pad, the water molecules on the surface evaporate, which causes the air temperature inside the cooler to drop. The fan then blows that cold air into your room, where you can enjoy the cooler air on a hot day.

Cools Outdoor Air

Contrary to a regular central air conditioning system, the use of evaporative coolers can reduce temperature inside a room with an open window. An evaporative cooler reduces the temperature of outdoor air by passing it over water-saturated pads, causing the water to evaporate into it. The evaporated water would then become the cooler air. After that, the cooler air is then directed throughout the home, pushing the warmer air outside through the open windows. Occupied rooms that are intended to be cooled down are left with open windows. This automatically fixes the temperature variations as cooler air is felt in the entire room.

Promotes Energy Efficiency

Evaporative coolers use far less electricity to operate because the machinery only operates on a fan that draws airflow over the cooling pad. They can reduce the temperature in a single room by -15° to -9°C. And they do so using only one-seventh of the electrical consumption of a standard air conditioning system. As a result, several watts of electricity intended solely for cooling down a room, are saved for other future purposes. Aside from that, evaporative coolers cost about only half the price of a central air conditioner. Not only does it promote energy efficiency, it also cuts down the household expenses.

If you are on the lookout for efficient evaporative coolers, Peter Ross Enterprises Evaporative Coolers has got you covered. We have several products that can provide commercial industrial cooling to your workplace, warehouse and factory. As mentioned above, it cools large hot areas far more effectively than regular fans and costs far less than air conditioning.
