How Does Evaporative Cooling Work?
As the name suggests, evaporative cooling is a type of cooling system. It employs the basic principle of evaporation to cool air. It has a unit mounted on a roof that draws in hot and dry outside air. As the air draws in, it passes through soaking wet pads that evaporate heat. The cooled air is then circulated through the home via ductwork and vents.
Evaporative cooling suits a variety of homes and works well in most climates. But it is not usually suggested for areas with high humidity.
When an evaporative cooler is in operation, it is important to leave a window or door open. This is so the hot air in a room can move out and cool air from the vents can move in. Don’t fear if this a new concept to you, your Metropolitan Air Conditioning technician will ensure you’re properly informed on best practice and will help you get everything you can out of your system.
Evaporative Cooling Service and Repair
At Metropolitan Air Conditioning, we suggest regular servicing of your evaporative cooling system. Regular servicing is important as the pads in the unit may need to be replaced. If you continue to operate a poor functioning unit, it will reduce the quality of your air and the cooling effectiveness. This not only means you miss out on the benefits of this system, but it could cost you more in the long run as well.
At Metropolitan Air Conditioning, we can service all makes, models and brands of evaporative cooling. When performing a service, our qualified technicians:
- Check for vermin
- Check for corrosion and water damage
- Disinfect and deodorise the cooler to remove mould and build up
- Test the thermostat
