Evaporative Cooling Basics
We know that not everyone is familiar with evaporative air conditioners. Many of us are used to refrigerated air conditioning, not the natural process of evaporation.
Essentially, the name speaks for itself. Evaporative air conditioning involves a roof-mounted cooling unit that draws in hot air from outside your home.
The warm air is filtered through moist cooling pads, triggering a continuous cycle of evaporation. Therefore, the cooled water transforms from a liquid to a gas, naturally cooling the external air that is being pushed through the system.
A fan then moves the freshly cooled air through a series of ducts in the roof. Vents release the cool air, giving you an efficient ducted air conditioner.
Evaporative coolers are suitable for most regions. Although, they don't perform as well in humid climates. Long spells of heat and humidity cause the filter pads to turn dank and mouldy. Otherwise, there are few reasons to not enjoy the perks of fresh, naturally chilled air.
Benefits of Evaporative Air Conditioning
If you're after cost effective cooling, evaporative air conditioning is one of the premium options. Less energy is used than a traditional refrigerated air con, while it's also more environmentally friendly.
Competitive installation costs and reduced energy usage also make this a great ducted option throughout Australia.
As the evaporative cooling system doesn't use as much electricity per hour, they're also economically friendly. An evaporative cooler does not use Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which are harmful to the environment. Instead, the evaporation process ensures that your cooling system can maintain a comfortable temperature with no negative side effects.
For the health conscious or allergenic, evaporative air coolers are a healthier choice for your home. Unlike traditional air conditioning that uses recycled air, evaporative coolers give you fresh, clean, cool air. The circulated air from an evaporative is not dry like that of air conditioners. It won't irritate your eyes or leave you with dry, itchy skin.
As Australian summers continue to get hotter with heatwaves aplenty, an evaporative cooling system offers a competitive difference to traditional systems.

What's the difference between evaporative cooling and air conditioning
The major difference between traditional air conditioning and evaporative air conditioning is the cooling method. Standard refrigerated systems use refrigerant and chemicals to cool or heat air to a set temperature. They often have reverse cycle capabilities, too, and can operate at both hot and cold temperatures.
Meanwhile, evaporative units use moist cooling pads and warm external air to create a controlled evaporation. This cools down fresh air that is then pumped throughout the home. There is no unbuilt heating, although gas ducted heating systems can be installed alongside evaporative coolers.
How much does evaporative cooling cost to install?
Costs can vary depending on your circumstances. Ductwork will have to be installed inside the ceiling, and this may or may not be a straightforward task. Replacement costs can also vary. If existing ducts can be retained, you are only paying for the cost of a new unit (and associated work) rather than a full installation.

What is the best way to use evaporative cooling?
Although easy to use, evaporative cooling systems do require a few extra tricks to work at their most efficient. This includes leaving windows and doors open while the unit is running.
This is because this system relies on moving internal warm air through open windows or doors. Naturally cooled outdoor air can then be brought in to replaces it. The entire process creates a natural sense of airflow, much like the external environment.
It may feel like a strange thing to do in the current climate, however, there is no additional energy use. Your room remains fresh and cool.
