Evaporative Coolers can Cool without the Cost!
AtElectric Fan we are dedicated to relieving you from the heat with high-end cooling units that work quickly and efficiently without disturbing your life with loud noise. From small, personal desk fans, to powerful swamp coolers and portable air conditioners, we have what you are looking for at a price you can afford.
Evaporative Cooling is an ideal way to bring refreshing, cool air to your home if you live in a dry, hot place. An evaporative cooler does what an air conditioner does at a lower cost, and with less electricity. The evaporative cooler uses only one-fourth the amount of energy that an air conditioner will!!! Plus, an evaporative cooler does not use refrigerants that can potentially harm the ozone layer.
An evaporative cooler is also referred to as a swamp cooler because it evokes the idea of a well-moisturized area, the opposite of a desert: a wet swamp! These units consist of a box frame and fan, enveloped in water soaked pads. The pads are made of cellulose or cedar shavings and as the fan blows out the evaporated water from the pads, a hot, dry area is cooled by the evaporated water, while simultaneously being refreshed by the moisture. With the use of cedar pads, a swamp cooler will also provide a light forest fresh scent, an often overlooked benefit to this cooling method!
Take note that if you live in a hot, humid area, an evaporative cooler is not for you! The evaporative cooler will not cool, as there is already existing moisture in the air. The evaporated water works in dry areas because it takes the warm air surrounding it and cools it by transferring it through the water. In the case of already moisturized, hot air, adding more water is not going to cool it down anymore, but simply increase its water level, leaving your surrounding area feeling exactly the same, if not worse, from the slight increase in humidity!
When in the correct environment, an evaporative cooler will effectively cool 15 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. With a swamp cooler you should also have your windows partly open to bring in fresh air. The coolness will not escape like with an air conditioner. Some of our swamp coolers even come with dual features such as air purifiers and humidifiers, making your evaporative cooling purchase extremely worthwhile. The NewAir AF-320 Evaporative Cooler is also an air purifier and theConvair Arctic Breeze 1500 Evaporative Cooler also serves as a humidifier. Be careful to choose an evaporative cooler that promises to cool a specific amount of square feet. TheNewAir AF-330 Evaporative Cooler, for example, will cool up to 200 square feet.
Remember not to use your evaporative cooler at the same time as an air conditioner, as this will be counter-productive. Yet, it is fine to switch off between an air conditioner and a swamp cooler regarding the present season. It is essential to remember that if your evaporative cooler has been off for an extended period of time, drain the water and replace it with a fresh supply when you are ready to resume use of your cooler. Bacteria will flourish in the moisture-filled environment if this is not done!
