Frequently Asked Questions about Evaporative Cooling
This is dependent upon the ambient conditions but, in hot weather in the UK, there is typically an 8°C to 10°C drop in the temperature of the air through the cooler.
In the UK the maximum temperature from an evaporative cooler would be 22° C. In temperate climates it is unusual for the air temperature to exceed 24° C.
Yes, the water is recirculated until the evaporation has concentrated it to its scaling point or when the cooling is turned off and the cooler automatically drains.
For every 1kW of cooling required a cooler will use approximately 20W of electricity and 0.7L of water.
25kW of cooling will cost 10p in electricity and 2pm in water per hour at UK 2011 prices.
It is recommended that the unit is cleaned every 6 months.
Dependent upon air quality pads can last up to 5 years.
Yes, the pad will filter out larger particles such as dust or pollen. Insect screens are also fitted as standard.
No, provided the design is based on a balanced ventilation scheme with appropriate controls
Yes the units are CE marked and fully comply with LV and EMC regulations.
No, people are comfortable in a well ventilated building under 25°C. A correctly designed EcoCooling system will achieve this in temperate climates.
Two years supply only provided unit is serviced by EcoCooling approved engineers.
