What is evaporative cooling?
Evaporative cooling is natures’ most efficient way of cooling – through the evaporation of water! Evaporative coolers do exactly that, they cool by drawing warm or hot air through wet pads using a fan blower.
Evaporative cooling is becoming more and more popular in Melbourne as it is best suited to warm, dry climates without intense humidity.
It also gives the feeling of bringing the outdoors in, by allowing open doors and windows while the air-conditioning is running
(In fact – this is essential!)
Australian studies have shown that even large evaporative coolers usually cost between 5 and 10 cents per hour to run. So, on a hot Melbourne day, it can cost under $1 to run an evaporative cooler for the whole day!
At that price, wouldn’t you rather stay cool than leaving your Evap System there to rust?
Evaporative Cooling Tip!
It is most efficient to open (approximately half way) the window in the rooms that you are cooling that are farthest from the vent. The open window is acting as an exhaust for the cooled air.
The benefits of Evaporative Cooling
- It is a Cost effective option for cooling an entire house or office area.
- Internal air becomes comfortably cool not uncomfortably cold.
- Your evaporative air conditioner can be used to cleanse the air in your home e.g. cooking or smoking smells can be blown away.

Who do I contact to book an evaporative cooling service?
We recommend seasonal maintenance (pre and postseason) if you have a cooler fitted with a bleed system, including regular servicing of your evaporative air conditioner. If your evaporative cooler is fitted with a drain valve, no seasonal maintenance is required, but maintenance checks are essential to ensure the cooler operates efficiently for many years.

Do you keep windows open with evaporative cooling?
Yes, you must have a door or window open to allow the fresh cool air to replace the old hot air. However, there are specific relief vents available if you’re not comfortable leaving your home with the doors or windows open.
There is also ways to manipulate the air to exit the house where you would like extra air flow. Such as through a room without any direct cooling vents, this will force all of the new cool air to push through this room helping to cool it too.
