Most air conditioning systems make use of refrigerant in order to cool a space. They evaporate refrigerant to absorb heat inside the home, then condense it to vent the collected heat outside. This is a fine way to air condition space, but it’s not the only way. Evaporative coolers use a simpler method to achieve similar results.

What is an Evaporative Cooler?

An evaporative cooler also called a swamp cooler, is a system that cools a home without using refrigerant. Instead of using refrigerant to cool the air, an evaporative cooler uses the evaporation of water. The concept is actually quite ancient and has been used in one form or another for thousands of years.

In modern evaporative coolers, hot air from the home is passed through a membrane or pad. The system sprays the pad periodically to keep it moist. Water that drips from the pad is collected and returned to the top of the system where it can be reintroduced. As the warm air flows through the pad, the water evaporates and cools it. This also increases the humidity levels in the air, which is part of why evaporative coolers are sometimes referred to as swamp coolers.

The Advantages of Evaporative Coolers

It takes a fair bit of energy to evaporate and condense refrigerant to cool a home. This can definitely cause issues during the summer when hours and hours of air conditioner usage can lead to some pretty high monthly bills. Evaporative cooling, on the other hand, makes use of a natural process to cool air. This uses a lot less energy, which leads to cheaper monthly bills.

You also don’t have to worry about refrigerant leaks with evaporative coolers, which is a serious issue for traditional air conditioners. Finally, if your home suffers from the chronically dry air you can absolutely benefit from the addition of humidity.
