While weather has been on the colder side for the last couple of weeks, spring will be here soon enough, and with spring comes the warm weather we know so well in Fresno, CA. If you are thinking of replacing your current AC system or are installing a brand new system, you would do well to consider an evaporative cooler. This type of cooling unit works by circulating water from a reservoir within the system onto a saturated cooling pad. A fan draws air from outside the unit through the pad. As it passes through, the air is cooled by evaporation.
Why Should I Consider One?
There are many benefits to evaporative cooling. First off, they work best in dry climates such as ours. They are also extremely energy efficient, using significantly less electricity than a traditional air conditioner. This could result in big savings, especially with how often you need to run your AC. These are not the only advantages of an evaporative cooler though. We’ve highlighted some more benefits below.
- Environmentally Friendly: Evaporative coolers do not use refrigerants for the cooling process. Therefore, there are no greenhouse gases emitted.
- Low Maintenance: While any AC unit needs regular maintenance, the technology for evaporative coolers is fairly simple and maintenance and repair costs are typically low.
- Air Filtration: While not comprehensive, evaporative coolers can help improve your indoor air quality, as the cooling pads act as natural traps for dust and pollen.
- Humidity: These coolers add moisture to your home naturally. This can keep your wood furniture and fabrics from drying out, therefore keeping your home in good condition.
