An evaporative cooler is a good choice if you’re looking at your cooling options. These are 10 options to help you make a decision.
Portacool is a manufacturer of portable evaporative coolers. Our models are portable and can be moved around to provide cooling wherever you need it. They are lightweight at as low as 35 pounds (dry), with sturdy wheels or casters that can be moved wherever you need them. They only require an outlet and water supply. This could be a water pitcher, water jug, or garden hose.
Air conditioning can be very energy-intensive. An air conditioner unit can consume a lot of energy due to its powerful compressor and many fans. An evaporative cooler uses a single fan and a low power pump to produce a fraction as much energy as an air conditioner unit.
Air conditioners can be expensive. Air conditioners are expensive because they have many mechanical parts. The cooling coils that exchange heat with the air must also be made from metal. Refrigerants are required to charge air conditioners, both at the beginning and later. They require a lot more energy to operate.
Evaporative coolers can be made almost entirely of molded plastic and can be assembled quickly to reduce their initial cost. They are also a great deal when you consider the lower energy costs.
Less Mechanical Parts
A typical evaporative cooler has two parts: a fan, and a pump. Air conditioners usually have multiple fans and a compressor.
Air conditioners that have more mechanical parts are likely to require more maintenance.
Evaporative coolers last longer because there are fewer parts. Portacool has added safeguards to our evaporative coolers so that pumps can shut off when water levels drop.
No Toxic Chemicals
Evaporative coolers are amazing because they use natural cooling strategies. They only require water and air for their work.
Air conditioners, on the other hand, use refrigerant gases which can be harmful if they leak. They can also be harmful to the environment.
Evaporative coolers are able to dramatically cool the air. They can cool the air by as much as 30° Fahrenheit in hot or dry conditions. The cooler can also feel five degrees cooler if you stand directly in front of it.
You may have noticed that it takes a while for your air conditioner to turn on after you get in your car on a hot afternoon. Air conditioners work by cooling the air stepwise several times.
Evaporative coolers on the other side cool air in one pass through the media. This is essentially instant cooling. It also means you can get effective cooling even in large open spaces like garages or aircraft hangars.
The summer heat can make it oppressively hot in some areas of the country. Dry skin cracked lips and sore throats can result. Hardwood floors and furniture can also be damaged. Evaporative coolers can be used to prevent the negative effects of dry air.
