What are the benefits of Evaporative cooling?
With evaporative air conditioners, the daily running costs less, maintenance and service costs are significantly lesser than refrigerated air conditioners. Natural approach to cooling with no ozone depleting CFCs used. Environmentally responsible cooling. Economical to purchase. Low installation cost compared to ducted refrigerated air conditioning systems. Low energy use compared to refrigerated air conditioning systems. Low running costs = reduced electricity bills. Low service and maintenance costs compared to refrigerated air conditioning. Low greenhouse gas emissions due to low power consumption. Cool air with increased humidity. Washed and filtered outside air used. Circulated clean fresh air with doors and windows open. Australian Designed and built for the harsh Australian environment. Kind to the live plants in your home. Helps reduce the spread of infections. Helps to eliminate smoke and cooking odours. Adds value to your home.
How much water does an evaporative cooler use?
The volume of water consumed by an evaporative cooler depends on the area where cooling is required, including other technical aspects. Also, Evaporative air conditioners consume water in 2 ways. Firstly, it consumes water during the process of evaporation to provide cool air to the entire house or space selected. All evaporative air conditioners of equal performance will evaporate the same amount of water in the cooling process. Secondly, water is also consumed to maintain the integrity of the air conditioner and reduce the build-up of minerals and sediment in the water reservoir.
Why does water run from an evaporative cooler?
Evaporative air conditioning employs the natural method of cooling with water, that is, by way of evaporation. This means that as water is being evaporated, the mineral deposits left behind are dissolved in the water. Over the hours, these minerals increase in the reservoir of the unit. The build-up of these mineral deposits turn the water hard and this hard water can do irreparable damage to an evaporative air conditioner if it is not managed correctly. The method of which this used water is managed is by way of a bleed-off or a regular dump style drain. If there is a continual flow of water that is greater than the bleed or the dump drain then the water levels may need to be reset by the installer of a service technician.
Why windows and doors need to be open for an evaporative cooler to work?
Evaporative air conditioning being a natural method of cooling relies on changing the air in the home to provide cooling. This change of air method simply means that the cool air coming into the home from the evaporative air conditioner, picks up heat from inside the home and the air is then expelled or relieved out of an open door or window, hence changing of the air.
How does evaporative cooling work?
Evaporative air conditioning is very suited to the dry climate of the southern states of Australia and will provide relief cooling in humid regions. These units are very suited to the Australian lifestyle. Evaporative air conditioners cool by nature’s very own method of evaporation and can be likened to a sea breeze. The process works such that the hot outside air is drawn through water moistened filters. This air absorbs moisture through evaporation, on a ducted system. This moisture-filled air is blown through ducts and outlets to most rooms of a home. The moist cool air absorbs heat from the rooms and the air must be expelled through an open door or window in each room there is an air outlet or vent.
How do I re-code my controls?
Use the following steps to code these controls:
Step 1: Turn the mains power off to the unit(s) for approximately 30 seconds
Step 2: Turn the mains power back on to the unit. The clock area will display some dashes. This is only the controls initiating communication.
Step 3: Once the control displays the clock again, turn on. Check if communication has been remade by starting the product.
Step 4: If communication has not been resumed, a service call may be required.
