If you own a warehouse or any other large space that requires a cooling system, you may want to consider evaporative cooling. This technology has many advantages for your business and the environment, so it’s a popular alternative to more traditional air con systems.

At Heritage Heating, we provide several commercial evaporative cooling systems for clients across all industries, so we know everything there is to know about it and how it can help your business.

What is Evaporative Cooling?

Evaporative cooling works by using water as a refrigerant instead of harmful chemicals and substances. The system passes outside air through a water-saturated medium, which leads to evaporation and the increase of humidity in the air. When this happens, the temperature decreases. The colder air is used to cool the internal air and can be circulated around your warehouse with fans.

These units also take advantage of the outdoor temperature – the hotter it is, the more efficient the system is at decreasing the internal temperature. Evaporative cooling works efficiently for a long time, so you don’t have to worry about dips in performance.

We’ve been providing UK-manufactured evaporative cooling and industrial heating for many years, so ring us on 01509 814 123 if you want to learn more about our systems.

Benefits of Evaporative Cooling

Greener Technology

Evaporative cooling consumes less energy than other types of air conditioning, which means it’s eco-friendlier and better for your wallet. As mentioned, these units don’t use harmful refrigerants to cool the air, so they’re better for the planet too.

On the other hand, some air con systems make use of substances like hydrofluorocarbons, which contributes to the destruction of the ozone layer.

Also, by using less electricity, evaporative cooling systems also use less fossil fuels, which leads to fewer gas emissions into the atmosphere as well.

More Energy Efficient

Most of the cooling capacity of these systems is provided through water evaporation and the fans that distribute the cool air across your warehouse are energy-efficient – in fact, commercial evaporative coolers can be up to 80% more efficient than other systems when it comes to cooling a large space.

And, if you need to constantly open and close doors, the performance of more conventional air conditioners will suffer, as they can’t cool the air efficiently. However, the same isn’t true of evaporative coolers. High traffic of people and goods won’t impact these systems, so they’re suitable for many different workspaces.

Better Air Quality

Evaporative cooling systems don’t dry the air either, so you’ll find that the quality of the air in your warehouse is a lot better than with conventional units. In addition, the air is not re-circulated either, but replaced with new, fresh air, which leads to a healthier workplace and, therefore, improved productivity.

People are also less likely to become ill if the air is of a better quality (especially people with health issues, from allergies to respiratory problems), so you may see a decrease in sick days as well. Plus, these coolers add moisture to the air, which is ideal if you work in a dry environment.

Easy to Maintain

Whether you own a commercial garage or a big warehouse, you don’t want to have to worry about the performance of your cooler. Evaporative cooling units have a long lifespan and don’t require a lot of maintenance – regular maintenance should be more than enough, as it helps to prevent issues or to solve problems before they become worse.

At Heritage Heating and Cooling, we not only install your evaporative cooling units but we also provide ongoing servicing and maintenance, so you can be confident that your products will perform at their peak for a long time.

More Cost-Efficient

Another reason to choose these types of units is that they have fewer ongoing costs, since they don’t require a lot of maintenance. They have a fairly simple design, so repairs and installation won’t be expensive either. Evaporative coolers can be cheaper to purchase as well, so your initial costs won’t go over your budget.

Why Choose Us?

We are industrial cooling experts you can trust. Once you decide which evaporative cooling system you want to install, we’ll handle the rest. We’re flexible, so we work with you to pick the best time to install the unit, which will help keep disruption to a minimum.

We have many years of experience installing evaporative cooling technology, and all our engineers are REFCOM-certified, or equivalent. This means they can install your unit no matter where you’re located and will do so to the highest standards as well.

In addition, we stock world-class brands, such as Fujitsu, since quality is a big concern for us, and we want our clients to get only the best.

Of course, it’s equally important you make sure an evaporative cooling system is the right choice for your business and space. We have many other commercial air conditioning units at your disposal, so our expert team can help you to make a decision.
