Evaporative Cooling from Waldron Heating, Cooling & Hot Water


What is Evaporative Cooling & How does it work?

Evaporative Cooling is a cooling system that transfers warm air from outside through wet cooling pads inside the Evaporative Cooling Unit (generally on your roof) and into your home via a series of ducts. A pump inside the unit wets the cooling pads and a fan is used to draw the air from the outside through the cooling pads and is then used to circulate the cool air throughout the home. The effect is a type of cooling similar to a ‘fresh sea breeze’ where warm air in your home is replaced with fresh cool air.

Does Evaporative Cooling use much power? Evaporative Cooling uses very little power compared to refrigerated cooling systems as the only component using power is the fan unit. Power usage has been compared with running a light bulb with running costs as low as approximately 5 cents an hour compared to an estimated 30 – 35 cents an hour for a typical Reverse Cycle Split System!

Do I need my windows open with Evaporative Cooling? Yes. As Ducted Evaporative Cooling introduces a large volume of cool air into your home from the outside you will need to have some windows open to accommodate for the air movement. Generally this is one window in each room and the window only needs to be open approximately 10 centimetres.

Does Evaporative Cooling work in the Ballarat Climate? Absolutely, in fact the slightly cooler climate in our region is perfect for Evaporative Cooling. Evaporative Cooling tends to struggle in very humid climates so the fact that Ballarat has minimal humidity and also has very few days over 40 degrees in Summer, means it works brilliantly in our region.

Can I use Evaporative Cooling at night? Definitely! Ducted Evaporative Cooling is perfect to sleep under on a warm Summer night. It is quiet and as the air is cool fresh air it allows you to sleep without waking up freezing like you do with refrigerated cooling system. Externally the Evaporative Cooling Units are normally quiet enough to not cause the neighbours any concern at night either! What better way to help the kids sleep on a hot Summer night than with a fresh sea breeze from your Ducted Evaporative Cooling System from Waldron Heating Cooling & Hotwater!
