What are the benefits of evaporative cooling systems?

The Advantages of Evaporative Cooling

Evaporative cooling systems can be a great option for your space. The advantages of evaporative cooling systems (swamp coolers) include:

  • Swamp coolers are a low-tech way to cool a space or building.
  • Evaporative coolers use fresh, un-recycled outdoor air to cool a space.
  • They work best during the hottest part of the day. As temperatures climb and humidity drops, swamp coolers work better.
  • Evaporative cooling units cost 75 percent less to run than A/C.
  • Most swamp coolers can run on 120 volts. A/C requires higher amperage.
  • Some units can now be run on solar energy.
  • Swamp coolers can be used without the need for A/C in arid environments.
  • Evaporative cooling systems are inexpensive compared to A/C installation.
