How to Use an Evaporative Air Cooler as a Humidifier How to Use an Evaporative Air Cooler as a Humidifier
Using an evaporative air cooler as a humidifier is a great idea. If you have never heard of it or thought to do so before, here are a few things that you need to do to accomplish this.
Step 1 - Set Up the Air Cooler
The first thing that you need to do is set up the air cooler. To do so, follow the instructions that came with the unit. The most important step is to make sure that it is circulating air from outside that is moist or wet as well as warm. This is particularly great when you are using the cooler in a greenhouse.
Step 2 - Install Pads
The most important part of this is using the right pads for humidity. You want to look for the kind of pad material that will allow the water to sit and soak so that when the air blows through and circulates, it allows it to be moist. The downside though is that with these pads, you will also need to buy several replacements because when using them for humidity; they will be both warm and wet on most occasions and they will hang on to mold easier than others, so changing them often is the best idea.
