Evaporative Cooling is Natural Climate Control

One of the most eco-friendly ways to keep your home cool is with the help of an evaporative cooling air conditioner. Unlike refrigerated cooling, evaporative cooling is a natural process that gives you a soothing breeze on hot summer days. It's also around 75 per cent more energy efficient than split system air conditioning, potentially saving you big on the quarterly rates.

Metropolitan Air Conditioning is here to help you stay cool with our evaporative cooler repairs, maintenance and installation services. So whether you have an existing air con that needs personal care, or want a new system installed, we're here to get you ready for summer. You'll be able to relax as a ducted evaporative cooling system spreads fresh and filtered cool air throughout your home.

When you book a qualified Metropolitan Air Conditioning technician you'll receive fast attendance within 1 hour* of your call and will never have to pay more for after-hours visits. That's great news when your evaporative air conditioner breaks down during a hot evening or on the weekend.

How Does Evaporative Air Conditioning Work?

Sure, the evaporative cooling process itself is a natural air conditioning process, but how does evaporative cooling work? It's surprisingly simple.

Hot air is drawn into a roof-mounted unit where it is filtered and cooled while passing through moistened cooling pads. As the cooled air moves through the pads, water evaporates absorbing the heat in the air. As the air temperature lowers, the system fans circulate the comfortably chilled air throughout the home via ducts or vents.

Evaporative cooling always relies on fresh air, meaning you're not breathing dry, stale recirculated air as you would with refrigerated air conditioning. Asthma and allergy sufferers will see the benefits as cool fresh air continuously flows. And because the warm air has been naturally cooled by water, it remains moist and won't cause dry eyes or skin. How good does that sound?

Evaporative Cooling FAQ

All your essential questions about evaporative cooling systems, answered here!
It depends on your needs, so it’s best to weigh up the pros and cons of each system. Evaporative cooling is healthier, more eco-friendly and cheaper to run than a split system or ducted air conditioning. Although direct evaporative cooling only cools the air and doesn’t work as well in high humidity.
A central roof-mounted evaporative cooler could use up to 25 litres of water per hour. This may sound like a lot, but water is quite affordable. For example, 1000 litres in Melbourne costs less than $3. So, you would have to use an evaporative cooler for 48 hours before it even consumes $3 worth of water.
An evaporative cooler is surprisingly inexpensive to run. There are numerous factors that can influence running costs of evaporative air coolers, however, including the cooling capacity of the unit, humidity levels in the outdoor air, and the number of rooms you're looking to cool.
You can keep evaporative cooling running 24/7 if you are not concerned about running costs. Evaporative is safe to leave on overnight and can really help cool a home on those hot, uncomfortable summer nights when the heat from the outside air just won’t subside.
