Evaporative air conditioning, often called a swamp cooler, is very popular type of air conditioning that is widely utilized in southern regions of the United States. Evaporative air conditioners function by evaporating water instead of using refrigeration systems like other types of air conditioners. These types of air conditioners are best utilized in a very hot climate with low humidity.
Advantage 1 – Lower Cost Installation
One major advantage that an evaporative air conditioning system has over a refrigeration air conditioning system is that that the evaporative system has a lower overall installation cost. You can install an evaporative system for about half the cost of a refrigeration system.
Advantage 2 – Lower Operational Costs
Another advantage that an evaporative air conditioning system has is low operational costs. The average evaporation system can operate for ¼ less the expense than a refrigeration system. This is true simply because there are fewer parts in the evaporative air conditioning system requiring power.
Advantage 3 – Easier Maintenance and Repair
Another advantage that an evaporative air conditioning system has is a low maintenance cost. An evaporative air conditioning system has very few mechanical parts, which lower the risk of malfunction and required maintenance on these units.
