While evaporative cooling is still one of the older forms of climate control these days, it is also one of the most beneficial. Evaporative coolers provide a variety of benefits over conventional coolers that will make the purchase worth it.
Portable evaporative coolers use evaporation to help in cooling down the surrounding air. To make the evaporative cooling process works, it’s important to make sure the cooling pad remains constantly saturated with water while the unit operates.
Below are the major benefits of an evaporative cooler:
It is Environment-Friendly
Unlike refrigerated cooling that causes the air to become dry and uses chemicals during operation, evaporative cooling is based on naturally cooling air by water. Thus, the air being released from the system will be safer to the environment because no chemicals are released from it. Also, the air being released from the unit will not dry out the air in your home.
It is Affordable to Install
Installing an evaporative cooler is inexpensive compared to the cost of installation a regular air conditioner. This savings combined with the savings you enjoy from the reduced electricity consumption will make this investment a great one.
It is not Expensive to Operate
Evaporative coolers will dramatically reduce the operational costs associated with keeping your home environment cool and comfortable. The systems only require enough electricity to power their fan units and pumps. Thus, you will pay 50% less on operational costs every month. Regular ACs tend to be more expensive to operate as they require more electricity to power different parts such as the air blowers, compressors, and pumps.

It is Easy to Maintain
An evaporative cooler has a simple design. It includes a water pump and a fan motor that can be easily replaced when they stop working. Also, the parts of this unit are not complicated and costly which can be essential when the unit breaks. Just plan on having the system serviced twice every year to maintain their optimal condition and functioning.
It can Cool where you Need It
Evaporative coolers use a direct line of water that can be installed near a water source. Evaporative cooling units that do not draw from a water line can be placed anywhere. Portable models can be conveniently brought when you move or travel. Also, they can be easily shipped back to the manufacturer in case they need repair under warranty.
