Evaporative coolers, better known to some as swamp coolers have been around much longer than their mechanical counterpart. Indeed, there is evidence that the ancient Egyptians employed their own form of evaporative cooling to keep from frying during the summer heat.
While evaporative cooling equipment has changed since the times of the ancient Egyptians, the principle remains the same – converting sensible heat to latent heat through the evaporation of water to remove heat from the air. In simpler terms, intake air is passed through one or more wet pads to simultaneously absorb humidity and cool the air. The cool, humid air is then directed to the area where it is needed.
Evaporative coolers are the most environmentally friendly and energy efficient way to cool your home. Evaporative coolers use no CFC’s or harmful coolants to produce cool, fresh, healthy air for your home. With a complete air change every 2 to 3 minutes, evaporative cooling can be healthier than most central air conditioning systems.
Today, many homeowners and business owners rely only on their simple, affordable evaporative coolers to keep them comfortable in the heat. Evaporative cooling also has the advantage of being much less expensive to operate, meaning the home that operates an evaporative cooler probably uses significantly less electricity than the neighbor with the heat pump or the air conditioning system.
