If you live in a hot, dry climate, you may already know about evaporative air coolers, also called swamp coolers. Here's how they work:
- They provide natural and energy-efficient cooling by passing cool outdoor air over water-saturated pads, causing the water to evaporate into it.
- This air, which is 15° to 40°F cooler, is then directed into the home, and pushes warmer air out through windows.
- When operating evaporative coolers, windows are opened part way to allow warm indoor air to escape as it is replaced by cooled air.
- Unlike central air conditioning systems that recirculate the same air, evaporative air coolers provide a steady stream of fresh air into the house.
An efficient way to stay cool
Evaporative coolers cost less to install than central air conditioners, and significantly less energy. However, they require more frequent maintenance than refrigerated air conditioners, and they're only suitable for areas with low humidity, such as Las Vegas.
