Evaporative Cooling Systems: What Are They And Why Do I Need One?

Today’s technology is moving away from overly complicated, mechanical configurations in favour of more organic designs that mimic the simplicity and efficiency of nature.

Evaporative cooling systems are an excellent example of this! Using the natural phenomenon of liquid evaporation, they cool your interiors in the most efficient way possible.

In this blog, you’ll learn exactly how evaporative cooling works and what perks you’ll enjoy!

Evaporative Cooling Explained

The natural process of evaporation involves the vaporising of a liquid state substance to transform it into a gaseous state.

In English, this essentially means that a liquid is turned into a gas using temperature or pressure (like how clouds are formed).

For most models, the general way in which they operate looks something like this:

Cool water circulated

Using a pump, cold water is circulated from the internal water tank until it reaches and saturates the cooling pads of your system.

Warm air drawn in

The fan of the unit sucks in the warm, external air from outside of the cooling system. Then, it pushes the air through the air passes to be cooled.

Warm air cooled

This air then passes through the saturated cooling pads. The warmth of the air causes the water in these pads to evaporate, effectively cooling the air temperature.

Cool air emitted

The newly cooled air is then pushed out of the unit by the fan, creating a comfortable room temperature for you to enjoy!

Perks Of Evaporative Cooling Units

Energy efficiency

Evaporative cooling units are perfect for hot, dry climates like Kalamunda! With less moisture in the air, the evaporation process is much more efficient. Thanks to this assured energy efficiency, high energy bills will be a thing of the past!

Fresh air

The most exciting perk of evaporative cooling units is that they thrive when air is circulating. This means you can keep your windows or doors open as long as you need without impact your system’s efficiency or energy bills!

Scorching WA summers or not, you can keep fresh air flowing throughout your interior without counteracting the cooling.

Cool and comfortable

While more traditional air conditioners cool by removing moisture from the air, this results in cool but highly dry air. Perfect for irritating your skin and eyes!

On the other hand, evaporative cooling units promote moisture in the air. This provides a cool, soothing room temperature that won’t dry up your environment.

Evaporative cooling is truly a feat of human ingenuity! After leaving countless happy customers in their wake, our technicians at Kalamunda Plumbing know precisely how these systems can benefit you.

Testimonials What our
Customers Say

I have given Kalamunda plumbing 5 stars but only because I couldn’t give them 6!Kalamunda Plumbing we’re absolutely fantastic! I had a burst pipe somewhere on my property (3000 sqm) leaking at 1L per second. I tried 4 different plumbing companies before coming across Kalamunda plumbing. The first company made me wait two days and then forgot my booking, the next one couldn’t help me for over a week and the last quoted me $1200 for the job and still had to wait three days. I called Kalamunda plumbing and they arrived the very next day. Anthony found the burst pipe within 20 minutes to the exact location, dug down and repaired the leak. The whole job only took 2 hours and was 1/3 of the price I was quoted.They were professional, helpful and friendly. I will now be a customer for life. I have shared my experience with all that I know in my area.I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you for everything! When the need arises I will be back!

We had a large amount of water bubbling up between the pavers down the side of our house. After a quick call around and a few dead ends I got hold of Kalamunda plumbing. They were able to have someone around quickly, dig down and repair the broken water line. Saving me a fortune in wasted water. Highly recommend and definitely will be using for any future plumbing work.
Trent and Barry from Kalamunda Plumbing did an excellent job. As well as fixing the problem in a timely manner, they gave me some good advice on a number of other potential plumbing issues
Roger Barnett
One thing that I really appreciate is a tradesman that arrives when they say they will, especially when you have taken time off work to have your hot water system replaced.Kalamunda Plumbing were on time and I can't believe how quickly the work was done, and at a reasonable price considering that they did an urgent repair for me. Everything was back to normal again so quickly, mess cleaned up and they adjusted the water temperature so that it was not hot enough to scold me.Well done to everyone involved at Kalamunda Plumbing, greatly appreciated.Regards Russell
