Evaporative air conditioning

Many Perth families turn to evaporative ducted air conditioning to feel cool.

Unlike reverse cycle air conditioning, evaporative ducted air conditioning systems do not require enclosed spaces. They are also environmentally friendly.

How does Evaporative Cooling work?

Just as the name suggests, the natural process of evaporation is the key to Evaporative air conditioning. In fact, the whole process is very similar to the cooling of air as it is blown across cold sea water, eventually reaching land at a much lower temperature than it originally was. Now to truly understand how an Evaporative ducted air conditioning system works, we must look at effective temperature. Effective temperature is what we feel as a result of air moving across our body on a hot day, this is not the same as actual temperature, which you would measure with a thermometer. When we feel a cold breeze blow against our skin, the breeze is actually the same temperature as the other air around us, however, we perceive it to be colder due to increased skin evaporation. This evaporative causes heat to be removed from the body, in turn making you feel colder.

Now that you understand these principles you can get a better grasp of how an Evaporative air conditioning unit works. Each unit consists of a water reservoir, a pump, heat-exchange filters and a fan. Firstly, Water will be circulated over the heat-exchange filters by the pump, this allows outdoor air to be cooled as it passes through these filters. Once the filters are cool the fan will suck in outdoor air and push it through these heat-exchange filters, cooling the air significantly as it enters the home through the Evaporative air conditioning ducts.

How cold does an Evaporative Cooler get?

The general “rule of thumb” for Evaporative air conditioning is about 12 – 14 degrees C below the outside temperature, however, there are two factors that play a part in this, the Dry and Wet Bulb Temperatures. The Dry Bulb Temperature is what we usually think of as the air temperature. The Wet Bulb Temperature is the lowest possible air temperature that can be reached by evaporating water in it. Therefore, it is generally affected by humidity, height above sea level, dry bulb temperature and several other factors. So now to calculate the actual cooling ability of an Evaporative Air Conditioner at any given time you simply take the difference between the Dry and Wet Bulb temperatures (35 – 20 = 15) and multiply this number by the cooling efficiency of the units filter pads which is usually 80-85% (15 x 0.85 = 12.75). This number will be the expected cooling ability (in celsius) of your Evaporative Unit.

Ducted reverse cycle air conditioning systems are versatile, providing heating when it’s cold while effectively cooling your home when it’s hot outside. As your family’s needs vary across the seasons, you need a machine you can trust right throughout the year. Now with energy efficient inverter-based ducted reverse cycle air conditioning systems, you can now cool and heat using less electricity, than the previous non-inverter based air conditioning systems. Today’s air conditioning systems are reliable and will provide many years of total comfort for you and your family. 

Built with a wide range of hot and cold conditions in mind, reverse cycle ducted air conditioners have an automatic defrost cycle for more effective operation. Even with temperatures  as low as minus 5ºC, most reverse cycle air conditioning systems will heat your home. When looking to cool your home, a ducted reverse cycle air conditioning system absorbs heat from the inside air and dissipates it outside, leaving your home cooler. Advanced technology means that when temperatures reach as high at 46ºC in the heat of summer, your reverse cycle air conditioning system will still keep your house nice and cool.
