Portable swamp coolers are a great way to cool down a room. They’re better for the environment than traditional air conditioning. The units use less electricity, are much more efficient, and do not contain dangerous refrigerant chemicals. A swamp cooler uses a very simple process that is similar to the way the human body cools itself down. Three essential components make up the cooling system.
An evaporative cooler, or swamp cooler, uses a fan to draw in hot air through the back of the unit. Generally, the larger the fan, the more space the unit can cool.
A porous material such as a wicking pad sits at the center of the machine This material allows both water and air to pass through it. If a user has hard water, they might consider employing a filter or tablets to prevent minerals from building up on the pad.
Water passes through the wicking media and a small amount evaporates into the air, cooling it down. Thus, a swamp cooler does not use any kind of harmful chemicals. Evaporation alone is sufficient to make the temperature more comfortable.
