The hot weather is finally here, and now the question becomes: how can we keep cool indoors? If your business operates from a warehouse or any other large space, an evaporative cooling system might be the solution you’ve been looking for. This technology provides many advantages to both your business and the environment, so it’s become a very popular alternative to more traditional air conditioning systems.
At Heritage Heating, we can supply and install these systems. Not only that, we also offer commercial evaporative cooling system service and repair, to keep your cooling solution running smoothly. Read on to find out more about how an evaporative cooling solution could benefit your business in warmer weather.
How does an evaporative cooling system work?
An evaporative cooling system uses water as a refrigerant instead of harmful chemicals, a natural process ideal for cooling large indoor spaces.
The system draws air from outside and passes it through water-saturated pads, leading to evaporation and the increase of humidity in the air. The incoming air is then cooled and used to lower the temperature of the indoor space, and circulated around the indoor space with fans.
Why are evaporative cooling systems perfect for warmer weather?
There are several key reasons why this type of cooling system is making a name for itself in the commercial cooling industry.
Efficient and energy saving
The cooling units take advantage of the outdoor temperature – the warmer it is outside, the more efficient the system is at decreasing the internal temperature.
As this cooling solution works by taking advantage of the natural process of evaporation, it can massively reduce your business’ energy consumption. Evaporative cooling systems only need to use a small amount of electricity to run efficiently, saving you money and reducing your impact on the environment.
Not only do the units not require much electricity to function effectively, it also works using water rather than chemical refrigerants. Some air conditioning systems make use of substances like hydrofluorocarbons, which contribute to the destruction of the ozone layer.
It is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional cooling systems, something that businesses are becoming more and more conscious of.
Easy to maintain
The last thing you want to worry about is your air conditioning letting you down just when you need it most. This cooling system does not have as many complex moving parts as many traditional systems. The lack of parts liable to go wrong means evaporative cooling units are very reliable, and require less frequent maintenance.
In the event something does go awry, evaporative cooling systems are generally an easy fix, reducing the cost of maintenance.
Better air quality
Evaporative cooling systems don’t dry the air out inside a building, so the air quality in your workplace is a lot better than when conventional units are used. The cooled air is also not re-circulated, but constantly replaced with new, fresh air from outside.
People are less likely to become ill if the air in a building is of better quality – especially people with health issues, from allergies to respiratory problems.
Evaporative cooling could be the solution your business needs
These cooling units have a long lifespan and don’t require a lot of maintenance. They have a fairly simple design, so repairs and installation won’t be overly expensive. With fewer ongoing costs, efficient functioning, and environmentally friendly design, there’s a lot of reasons to make the switch to evaporative cooling.
At Heritage, we stock world-class evaporative cooling brands Coolair and Breezair, so you know you’re getting a quality product. We have many years of experience installing cooling technology, and all our engineers are REFCOM-certified, or equivalent. They can install your unit to the highest standards, no matter where your business is located.
