6 Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Ducted Evaporative Air Conditioner

Author: Lance Wiggers

Evaporative air conditioning works on the principle of natural cooling. When warm air moves across the ocean, this causes some evaporation that absorbs heat, this creates a sea breeze. Evaporative air conditioners use a similar technique by pulling hot air into the unit and passing it over moistened cooling pads. The cooled air is then circulated throughout the home.

Ducted evaporative air conditioners provide many benefits to homeowners and are suitable throughout the majority of Australia. Here are 6 ways you will get the most out of your ducted evaporative air conditioning system.


1. Save Money

Evaporative air conditioners are an excellent low-cost option for your home. Evaporative systems are generally more efficient compared to refrigerated air conditioning, costing less to run. Another cost-effective benefit of evaporative systems is that they generally cost less to install compared to similar refrigerated units. This makes a good option for those who want a ducted system on a budget.

2. Enjoy Cleaner Air

One of the most beneficial things about evaporative air conditioners is the excellent air quality in your home. With evaporative systems you can leave the doors and windows open, in fact you need to leave at least one open for it to work effectively. This feature provides a constant flow of fresh and clean air. When you compare this to refrigerated systems, where the same air is recycled over and over, this is a major plus for those who have asthma or allergies. It also benefits all occupants by supplying a constant circulation of fresh air.

3. Enjoy Peace and Quiet

Another great benefit of evaporative air conditioning is how quietly they operate. This is great for those who want to run their system throughout the night. You can enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep without being kept awake by a noisy air conditioner.

4. Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Refrigerated air conditioners use chemicals which are not good for the environment. However, evaporative systems use a natural cooling process involving water. Not only this, evaporative systems use less energy to run, making them an eco-friendly option for your air conditioning needs.

5. Maintain a Healthy Home

As mentioned above, evaporative air conditioners provide a constant flow of fresh air which has many health benefits. As well as this, evaporative systems bring moisture into the air. Dry air often causes irritation to the eyes and sinuses, especially for those with asthma and allergies. This moisture in the air can provide relief for many people.

6. Reduce Service and Maintenance Costs

Just like any air conditioner, evaporative systems should be maintained regularly to keep them working efficiently. Another benefit of evaporative systems is their low service and maintenance costs. Evaporative systems have fewer moving parts, this makes it more affordable to maintain over their lifespan.

Ducted evaporative air conditioners provide many benefits for you and your family, including affordability, quiet operation, health benefits and being eco-friendly. To learn more about installing a new ducted evaporative air conditioning system, contact our friendly team.
