I recently made a decision in our home’s heating and air conditioner system, and went with an evaporative cooling system to keep my home cool and comfortable, and i think it’s a bold decision as these systems aren’t always the most suitable, and you have to know your weather conditions well to say whether it’s a solid choice! In my case, I knew it was going to pay off to have it, as I live in the southwest. It’s almost always hot, with no humidity, so rather than using a conventional central air conditioning system to supply cool air, I felt the evaporative cooling method would be much more effective since it introduces humidity and cool air! Think about the winter, when you use a fireplace to give off extra warmth to your house! Sure, the fireplace works well to warm the house, however don’t you feel your skin drying out if you always use the fireplace to supply heat? I know I always did, back when I lived further up north! With that in mind, hot and dry air can leave your throat scratchy, and that always drives me nuts! So, the evaporative cooler seemed like the best fix for our cooling needs, on top of being more effective as a cooling system, the evaporative cooler also uses just a piece of the energy needed for a conventional central air conditioning system to run as needed… As a result, our energy bills are a lot lower! With the money I’m saving by using this evaporative cooler, I can invest in other appliances for cooling the house, then next, I might invest in a solar tower to draw heat out of the house. Or, maybe I’ll just get a proper humidifier for when it gets cold outside.
