So what is Evaporative cooling and how does it work?

An Evaporative Cooling system is an efficient solution for cooling your entire house, it works on the simple principles of evaporation.

Evaporative cooling involves an external unit that sits on the roof and is connected by ductwork to a series of outlets providing fresh air all throughout your house. how dows evaporative cooling works

Here we will demonstrate how it works in 4 simple steps:

So what is Evaporative cooling and how does it work?
  • Warm outside air is drawn into the evaporative cooler through wet filter pads by the ventilation fan
  • The warm air passing through the wet filter pads makes the water evaporate. The heat needed to cause the evaporation is expelled, creating cooler air
  • The ventilation fan then directs the cool air through the ductwork into the rooms through the vents
  • Windows should be opened sufficiently so that air flows steadily out to maintain a suitable balance and ensure the system functions at peak efficiency

Why and when Evaporative cooler needs servicing?

So what is Evaporative cooling and how does it work?

 You may not be aware but evaporative coolers collect a lot of dust and pollen. This build-up of dirt and grime clogs up the unit and blocks the filter pads, causing possible problems with the water pump and other components, and blockages within the water distribution and drain system. As a result - less cooling efficiency throughout the house.

 The general recommendations to ensure maximum efficiency may range from checks on an annual basis to having the cooling system checked every 2-3 years, depending on the brand and model. The best is to refer to the owner’s manual. Also, it might be worth checking the system after the first year it was installed, just to ensure everything has been set correctly.

 Maintenance is recommended to be performed before the summer season to keep cool and comfortable through the summer months.

    A very professional person. I had my central heating not working but was told by an earlier guy that the PCB faulty. Serge is very passionate with his work and told me my remote is fault. He does to the extend checking for other issues and informed me about that. Indeed a guy where i will recommend and go for.

    This man is one of the best tradies I have encountered.
    Polite, punctual and most of all is an expert at what he does at a very reasonable price.
    Last year he serviced my Brivis evap. cooler. He took before and after photos as I wasn't getting on the roof for an inspection haha. This was his idea and I'd never thought about it.
    He brought all the panels down for a good scrubbing. Other plummers have only hosed them down on the roof.
    All in all, a very thorough tradesman.
    This year Serge replaced my four vents in the house. They look terrific, and have a shiny finish for easy cleaning. He cleans up and takes all the rubbish with him
    I'll happily refer him to my friends with confidence.
    Thanks again Serge

    I found him on the net. Didn't know what to expect in term of price, charge and quality of work. He didn't charge for call out fee and worked within my budget and gave me the best quote. Very thorough with the gas work. He even found the gas leaked that supposed to be check by the previous work plumber, who didn't seem to noticed that. Thank you for looking after me over the years. And I proudly recommend him to anyone especially the woman who scared of being rip off by the tradie.

6 Steps How to increase the Efficiency of Evaporative Cooler :

House v2
  • Whenever possible start the cooler early to prevent the build-up of heat within the house
  • It is essential to provide the required amount of ventilation by opening external windows and doors when operating the cooler
  • Use blackout curtains or blinds to reduce the impact of direct hot sunlight shining on windows
  • On days of high humidity, your evaporative cooler works best with the fan ON high and perhaps the pump turned OFF
  • Service your cooler regular, the system relies on the flow of air through the filter pads, so the cleaner they are the better the airflow
  • If moisture is building up on tiled or hard surface areas, ensure that airflow from the outlets is directed across the ceiling rather than down towards the floor
