What is Evaporative Cooling?

Evaporative Cooling is a ducted cooling system that is situated on top of your roof with ducts connecting to key rooms (if not all of them) in your home to distribute cool air. Evaporative Cooling is the most common form of whole home air conditioning in Melbourne, because of it’s incredibly low running costs, it’s the cheapest form of ducted cooling, and you can leave your doors and windows open.

How Does Evaporative Cooling Work?

Evaporative Cooling uses the natural cooling properties of water to lower the temperature of a room. A ducted cooling unit is installed on the roof and connected to a series of outlets placed throughout the home. The unit draws in fresh air from outside your house.

As the air passes through the filter pads (inside the roof unit), the air is cooled down and directed into every room in your house. The hotter the air, the better the cooling effect will be.

The entire volume of air within the house is refreshed every few minutes when using an Evaporative Cooler.

An Evaporative Cooler turns outside air into cool fresh air:
