What is an evaporative cooler and how does it work?
An evaporative cooler also known as a swamp cooler is a device that cools the air by utilizing the principle of evaporation. It draws warm air through water-saturated pads or media causing the water to evaporate and lower the air temperature. The cooled air is then circulated into the living space. This process is energy-efficient and works best in dry and arid climates.
What are the advantages of using evaporative coolers over traditional air conditioning systems?
Evaporative coolers offer several benefits over traditional air conditioning systems. They are more energy-efficient using up to 75% less energy than air conditioners. They provide natural and fresh air ventilation improving indoor air quality. Evaporative coolers are environmentally friendly since they use water and do not rely on refrigerants. Additionally they are cost-effective in terms of initial investment and maintenance.
