Do you Need an Evaporative Cooler Servicing
Before we get into the evaporative air conditioning servicing details, we must understand what and how it works.
With energy prices ever increasing and Australian summers getting hotter, evaporative air conditioning allows for better energy efficiency, healthier air flow, performance and lifestyle. Whole of house evaporative cooling is one of the oldest and most beneficial forms of keeping cool and less pollutants in the air.
As the name suggests, an evaporative air conditioner uses evaporation to help cool the air. Based on the principles of evaporation, hot and dry outside air is pumped through water-soaked pads, the water evaporates and the heat in the air is absorbed, which lowers the air temperature. The cold air is then blown throughout a house via a network of ducts.
It is important to remember that cooled air inside a home is not recirculated, so a door or window is left open for this air to escape, providing a home with a complete change in air at least every two minutes.
Choosing evaporative air conditioning means that you will not only help the environment but you will also experience natural, cool, fresh air.
Regular servicing by a qualified technician minimum every two years will ensure the unit continues to run at its peak efficiency and maintain low evaporative running costs. Organising an evaporative cooling service is as simple as calling our office 1300 669 555. You can also leave the thinking to Southside and we can send you a yearly reminder.
Evaporative air conditioners use a small amount of water, in many instances using almost 98% less water than a shower over a year. This is far less than a front-loading washing machine which uses around 60 litres of water for one wash.
Evaporative air conditioning can also help to slightly increase the amount of moisture in the air. This is especially beneficial for people living in dryer climates who can find it difficult to breathe or experience dry and cracked skin when using refrigerated options.
One of the great advantages of an evaporative air conditioner is that doors and windows can be left open – which is great news for people with children and pets who like to frequently come in and out throughout the day. That convenience does not have to compromise your home security however, because a security relief vents can be fitted into a ceiling – which means you sleep easy with all your doors and windows locked while the system runs overnight.
