Evaporative Cooling Melbourne

Cooling is achieved by intaking air from outside and passing it through pads filled with water. As the air passes through the pads, the water in the pads cool down the air. The cooled air is then distributed around the home through ducts. The pads are housed in a unit along with a fan which is usually placed on the roof. This cooling solution requires windows and doors to be open in order for the air in the house to be refreshed.

Doors and windows can be kept open, so a home with children who are often moving in and out of the home can do so freely. The pads used in the system also act as filters to dust, pollen and allergens, which makes this system suitable for individuals with asthma, allergies and hay fever. Installation and operating costs are lower than refrigerated cooling. This cooling solution is one of the most environmentally friendly options as it produces less than 15 per cent of the greenhouses gases produced by a refrigerated system.
