There’s a reason we call Australia the Sunburnt Country.
Summer can be a right stinker. Your parked car becomes a sauna, and you experience third-degree burns from the seat buckle. Weekends at home are no better; peeling yourself off a sweat-stained couch.
The only way to escape the blistering heat - and the family’s whingeing - is to install an efficient home cooling system.
But which is better? Evaporative cooling vs air conditioning.
No worries - say, hello Breeze! We’re revamping the way Aussies cool and heat their homes. We’re here to break down the differences between the cooling systems to help you make the best choice. Grab a coldie and take a squiz at Evaporative Cooling vs Air Conditioning systems for total climate control in your home.
Both evaporative cooling and air conditioning systems have indoor and outdoor unit. The outdoor unit turns warm air into cool air, while the indoor unit delivers the cool air throughout your home.
These units harness the power of evaporation. The evaporative cooling fan draws warm, dry air into the outdoor unit which sits on the roof. Thickened pads inside the unit absorb water, evaporate, and turn out cool, filtered air. The indoor unit then distributes throughout your home.
With an Air Conditioning system, warm air moves from within your home to the outdoor compressor, which heats or cools the air. Ducts concealed in the roof or beneath the floor deliver a steady airflow to all rooms via outlets. Change from cool air to warm air at the flick of a switch.
Both Evaporative Cooling and Air Conditioning systems have their strengths and weaknesses.
Don’t just go for the tight-arse option. You’ll also need to consider:
At the end of the day, the choice is yours. Air conditioning systems are more flexible, adjustable and energy-efficient. Let’s keep in mind how frosty winters get!
