Evaporative cooling systems offer a cheaper, environmentally friendly cooling system for your home. Evaporative cooling systems are 20% more efficient than your conventional ducted air conditioning systems; the systems use fresh air from an open door or window in your home, rather than recycled air.
Evaporative cooling work by pushing the warm air through water, cooling the temperature and providing a cool environment for residents. The air absorbs the water, moistening it and pushes cooled air through the ducts around your home. Evaporative cooling are far cheaper to run than traditional air conditioners, cheaper to install and require a relatively simple installation process compared to its air conditioning equivalent. There are many elements that need to be considered when looking for the best evaporative cooling unit, in this article we go into a little bit of detail regarding how to choose the best unit for your needs.

There is nothing worse that for you or your neighbours to be sitting outside on your patio enjoying a cold beverage and having to listen to your evaporative cooling system churning away! Coolers that embrace technology to not only effectively cool your home but also do it quietly are very important for you and your neighbour’s peace of mind.
Companies such as Braemar employ state of the art Stealth ® technology which ensures a constant and deliver airflow through Chillcel pads, providing an extremely quiet operation of your evaporative cooling system. While all units may be different in a range of features and benefits, the Db or debacle reading of your system is an important feature to be aware of when you’re investigating which evaporative cooling to purchase for your property.
Lowest running costs and efficiency is key to evaporative cooling
One of the key motivations for purchasing an evaporative cooling system over air conditioning units is their efficiency. Some evaporative cooling systems are known for their extreme efficiency while delivering exceptional cooling for your home. The Breezair Super Cool system is one of the market leaders when it comes to efficiency with a running cost comparison showing 1/10 of the energy used that a 20w reverse cycle air conditioning not zoned!

While costs of the evaporative cooling systems are all lower than their air conditioning equivalents, it is vital that when choosing your evaporative cooling unit you find one that suits all your household needs and runs as efficiently as possible.
Warranty is a must
You should look for an evaporative cooling system that has a comprehensive warranty. Companies that don’t have a long-term warranty should set off alarm bells during your quest to find and evaporative cooling system for your home, as if an issue arises, it may be a costly fix for you and your family at a very inconvenient time.
Companies such as Coolair evaporative cooling offer their customers a fully backed warranty and assurance with a ten-year structural warranty and a 25-year corrosion free guarantee. This level of confidence in their product offering should provide you and your family the peace of mind and knowledge that your evaporative cooling system will last the test of time for you and your family.
Colours to suit every taste
Many of the evaporative cooling systems available on the market are roof mounted systems, so they stick out on top of your home like a black beacon, making your roof look unsightly and taking away from the attractiveness of your home.
Colour choice should always be part of your decision-making process when selecting your evaporative cooling systems. Although it may only be an aesthetic look, your cooling system on top of your roof will be visible from one if not all of the sides of your home, so you need to make your choice wisely as you will be looking at it for a long time. Not only the colour of the unit should be on the top of your considerations, but the size. Depending on your budget there are very powerful systems that are smaller in size that won’t stand out like a sore thumb.
However, there are manufacturers such as Coolair that offer contemporary colour ranges to suit your roofing colour choice, complementing your home’s exterior decor and cooling your family all year round.
Water savings are important
While evaporative cooling systems offer a large range of cooling options for your family, they are extremely efficient, and they allow doors and windows to be open, they can use some water in the cooling of your air. There are evaporative cooling systems such as Braemar that utilise water management systems, to ensure the minimum amount of water is utilised in cooling your home, through monitoring your systems water usage and ensuring the system is clean. This is especially important in areas around Australia that have water restrictions.
Installation of your system is as important as the system itself!
While there are many features, advantages and benefits of the three leading brands we have discussed, there is another core element that you must be aware of when installing your new evaporative cooling system – the installation.
A poorly installed unit is as good as selecting the worst available evaporative cooling system on the market. Professional, qualified and licenced installers are paramount to the success of any evaporative cooling system in your home.The greatest wine in the world is the wine you like best – this goes the same with your choice of an evaporative cooler for your home.
