What is evaporative cooling? And how does it work?
Evaporative cooling, as it sounds, is the process of cooling by evaporation. It’s a cooler with water! Evaporative air conditioning involves having a cooling unit on your roof to draw in hot, dry fresh air from outside of your home. The air is then filtered through cooling pads, which creates evaporation, the process of water changing from a liquid into a gas. Evaporation absorbs the hot air, lowering the air temperature and increasing moisture content. The cool air is then dispersed by a fan through ducts in the roof, cooling down your home.

Benefits of Evaporative Air Conditioning
There are many great benefits of an evaporative system. For one, these coolers are cost effective. They don’t use as much energy as traditional air conditioning due their design, keeping your costs down. And they cost less for installation than your refrigerated alternatives.
As the evaporative cooling system doesn’t use as much electricity per hour, they’re also economically friendly. An evaporative cooler uses no Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which are types of gases that are harmful to the environment.
For the health conscious or allergenic, evaporative air coolers are a healthier choice for your home. Unlike traditional air conditioning that uses recycled air, evaporative coolers give you fresh, clean, cool air. The circulated air from an evaporative is not dry like that of air conditioners, so it won’t irritate your eyes or leave you with dry, itchy skin if you are prone to these symptoms.
As the Australian summers continue to get hotter with heat waves aplenty and energy prices forever increasing, evaporative cooling offers a competitive difference to the traditional systems.
How to use Evaporative Cooling
You may be wondering why we would include this, as using any air conditioner is as simple as pushing a button right? Although easy to use, it is ideal to note that for evaporative cooling systems to work to their full potential they require windows and doors to be left open when turned on, even in the highest heat of summer. This is because this system relies on changing the air naturally from inside of the home to provide cooling. Any warm air from inside the house needs to be let out through windows and/or external doors.
How to use Evaporative Cooling In Humid Weather
Using evaporative air conditioning in humid weather is much like using it every other day. It is, however, even more necessary to leave windows open and external doors ajar when there is humidity in the air to provide that extra ventilation.
Evaporative Cooling Vs Air Conditioning
So, what’s the difference and which is best for me? Evaporative cooling is a more cost effective, economically friendly and healthier choice than traditional air conditioning, using water and fresh air to cool your home. However, traditional air conditioning can be more effective in higher humidity climates as it will pump a dry cooled air into your home leaving any moisture behind. As there is no wet material used in traditional air conditioning, it is less likely for mould or bacteria to form.
