With summer coming it’s again time to think about how to keep you and your family cool on those extreme heat days.

Evaporative cooling is a popular cooling system that is cheap to run and easy to use… but how does it work?

Your evaporative cooling system is a relatively simple, roof-mounted system that contains a water tank, pump, cooling pads and ventilator. As the name suggests, the unit uses evaporation to cool the air.  When the evaporative cooler is switched on, a pump circulates water from the tank to the cooling pads to completely saturate them.

A fan is used to draw air from outside through the wet cooling pads and, as the air passes through the pads, it is cooled by evaporation.  This cooled air is then pumped around your home via ceiling ducts that run out to vents located in each room.

The evaporative cooling system is controlled by a wall-mounted panel that is responsive and easy to use, even for people who don’t like technology!

Latest model evaporative cooling systems are very cheap to run, usually costing between 5 and 10 cents an hour, so you don’t need to worry about the impact on your electricity bill.
