All you need to know about home evaporative cooling in Melbourne

So, what's the difference between home evaporative cooling and air conditioning? They are similar in some ways, but the important differences to be aware of are that air conditioning is more effective at cooling, while in most cases a home evaporative cooling system is more efficient at cooling.

Evaporative coolers require water, which is pumped through the cooling system where it evaporates. When water evaporates, it absorbs heat energy from the surrounding air. This process also humidifies the air slightly. In this way, it is the opposite of air conditioning which pumps refrigerant through the cooling system instead of water and dehumidifies the air. Because of this, evaporative cooling is best suited for areas that experience a lot of dry heat and low humidity. In these conditions, evaporative cooling is likely to give the most comfortable results.

Areas that experience higher humidity will benefit much less from evaporative cooling. In these areas, air conditioning is still the best choice, even though it is not as energy efficient. Most areas on Melbourne (and indeed the rest of Victoria) are well suited to using evaporative cooling systems.

Benefits of evaporative cooling in Melbourne

Some important things to keep in mind include:

  • Air conditioning will always provide the most cooling

  • Evaporative cooling will provide faster cooling

  • Air conditioners require far more energy than evaporative coolers

  • Air conditioners are more effective in cooling large spaces

  • Evaporative cooling can be a better choice for people who suffer from respiratory ailments

  • Most evaporative coolers are less expensive to purchase than most air conditioners, though there may be exceptions

The trade-off between efficiency and effectiveness is a delicate balance. Choosing the right kind of cooling system to suit your needs, budget, and environment is a big challenge.

About Evaporative Cooling

Unlike traditional refrigerated air-conditioning, evaporative cooling uses water to cool the hot air outside and draw it into the home. This method is a lot more energy efficient then refrigerated air-conditioning, saving you money and saving the environment.

The evaporation process of these cooling systems function best in drier weather. In our country’s north where the humidity is much higher evaporative cooling does not function as well.

Our bodies naturally act on evaporative cooling. When your perspiration evaporates from your skin – it cools your body.

Evaporative cooling systems work the same way. They draw in hot air from outdoors through wet pads, removing heat from the air as it passes through. Cool fresh air is then blown into your home through a series of ducts, with a complete air change every 1-3 minutes.
