Evaporative Cooling from Waldron Heating, Cooling & Hot Water

What is Evaporative Cooling & How does it work?
Evaporative Cooling is a cooling system that transfers warm air from outside through wet cooling pads inside the Evaporative Cooling Unit (generally on your roof) and into your home via a series of ducts. A pump inside the unit wets the cooling pads and a fan is used to draw the air from the outside through the cooling pads and is then used to circulate the cool air throughout the home. The effect is a type of cooling similar to a ‘fresh sea breeze’ where warm air in your home is replaced with fresh cool air.

Does Evaporative Cooling use much power? Evaporative Cooling uses very little power compared to refrigerated cooling systems as the only component using power is the fan unit. Power usage has been compared with running a light bulb with running costs as low as approximately 5 cents an hour compared to an estimated 30 – 35 cents an hour for a typical Reverse Cycle Split System!

Do I need my windows open with Evaporative Cooling? Yes. As Ducted Evaporative Cooling introduces a large volume of cool air into your home from the outside you will need to have some windows open to accommodate for the air movement. Generally this is one window in each room and the window only needs to be open approximately 10 centimetres.

Does Evaporative Cooling work in the Ballarat Climate? Absolutely, in fact the slightly cooler climate in our region is perfect for Evaporative Cooling. Evaporative Cooling tends to struggle in very humid climates so the fact that Ballarat has minimal humidity and also has very few days over 40 degrees in Summer, means it works brilliantly in our region.

Can I use Evaporative Cooling at night? Definitely! Ducted Evaporative Cooling is perfect to sleep under on a warm Summer night. It is quiet and as the air is cool fresh air it allows you to sleep without waking up freezing like you do with refrigerated cooling system. Externally the Evaporative Cooling Units are normally quiet enough to not cause the neighbours any concern at night either! What better way to help the kids sleep on a hot Summer night than with a fresh sea breeze from your Ducted Evaporative Cooling System from Waldron Heating Cooling & Hotwater!

Air Conditioning Installation in Ballarat

Air Conditioning Installation in Ballarat is Easy with Experience

When the need arises for a new air conditioning installation in your Ballarat home, the number of choices ahead can surprise many homeowners. However, given the importance and size of your potential investment, it is wise to take some time making your decision. After all, the results will have a direct impact on your ability to maintain a comfortable atmosphere at home. What kind of aircon should you choose? Is a split system the right setup for you, or should you go for a ducted system? At Waldron Heating, Cooling & Hot Water, we can help you to answer those questions while supplying top-notch products and professional installation services, too.

Why You Should Trust Waldron Heating, Cooling & Hot Water with Your Air Conditioning Installation in Ballarat

Given the importance of proper installation, it makes good sense to want to partner with a team that you can trust to do the job right the first time.

  • Our experience. With three decades in business, we've seen and done practically everything concerning air conditioning in Ballarat. As a result, we can handle work even on tricky homes.

How to Prepare Your Home for Air Conditioner Installation in Ballarat

Is there anything that you need to do ahead of time to make your home ready for our arrival? You might be relieved to know that there isn't much you need to do at all before our professional installers arrive on site. After all, this is no "DIY" job. However, there are some helpful steps you can take:

  • Ensure that you have an appropriate space for the installation of the new unit. It might sound basic, but it's a surprisingly general error. Work with your installers to make this determination.
  • When using ducted systems, consider having your old ducts cleaned before hooking up your new purchase. Ducts can accumulate dust, promote the growth of mould, and encounter other problems over time. A thorough cleaning is an excellent way to reset things back to normal.
  • Set aside time to allow the installers to enter your home and carry out the job. Pencilling in some time in your schedule ahead of time can help you avoid headaches in the future.

Ducted Evaporative Cooler

Why Use a Ducted Evaporative Cooler for Your Home’s Air Conditioning

If you are looking for the ideal air conditioning system for your home, consider installing a ducted evaporative cooler. Many homeowners assume that standard refrigerated cooling systems are the ideal variety of air conditioning, but perhaps less commonly used, evaporative air cooling provides numerous benefits that you cannot get from a refrigerated system.

Pros and Cons of Having a Ducted Evaporative Cooler

At Waldron Heating, Cooling & Hot Water, evaporative cooling in Ballarat is our preferred method for home air conditioning. We stock and install evaporative cooler products from top brands such as Braemar and Brivis. If you are wondering what to expect from an evaporative cooler, here are a few of the main benefits of evaporative cooling technology:

  • Less energy consumption. Perhaps the most significant advantage of evaporative cooling in Ballarat is how much less power it uses than refrigerated air conditioning. Natural processes of water evaporation drive the cooling process. The only component of the air conditioner that uses water is a fan unit. In most cases, evaporative coolers have operational costs of just five cents per hour—a fraction of the 30-35 cents per hour you would get with a refrigerated air conditioning system.
  • A natural feel. Often, cold air produced by an air conditioner can feel very artificial and dry. Evaporative coolers deliver airflow that isn’t unlike a pleasant breeze off the ocean. Using a Braemar or Brivis evaporative cooler also requires having the windows open, which helps capture that feel of fresh, natural airflow and air movement.
  • Quiet operation. Many air conditioners are quite loud. Since most units are installed externally, you’re separated from the noise by your walls, but it can still be unpleasant to listen to the sound—especially if you are trying to enjoy a summer afternoon outdoors. Evaporative systems, in part, because they use so little power, are quieter than most other cooling systems.

For some homeowners, having the windows open all the time is a con of evaporative coolers. In most cases, though, we think customers will enjoy the feel of natural breezes and airflow more than they expect.

When Purchasing a Ducted Evaporative Cooler, What Are Some Leading Brands to Consider?

Waldron Heating, Cooling & Hot Water has been operating for 30 years, and in that time, we have learned a lot about the different brands that manufacture cooling systems. We will only install cooling systems from brands we trust. Fortunately, there are numerous brands today that are crafting reliable cooling systems. These include:

  • Brivis
  • Braemar

The ideal air conditioning system for your home will depend on the size and the layout of the house, among other factors. We would be happy to send a technician to your home to determine whether you would be better off with Brivis evaporative cooling versus Braemar evaporative cooling.

Ducted Air Conditioning Installation

What You Need to Know About Ducted Air Conditioning Installation

Are you considering a ducted air conditioning installation for your home? If so, our team at Waldron Heating, Cooling & Hot Water can help. For the past 30 years, we have been assisting homeowners in Ballarat with their home heating and cooling needs. If you are interested in a ducted cooling system, we can offer both evaporative cooling and refrigerated cooling solutions.

Benefits of Ducted Air Conditioning Installation

There are several different ways of cooling a home, many of them ductless. However, for many customers, the advantages of ducted air conditioning make them a clear choice when it comes to home cooling. Some of those benefits include:

  • Whole-house cooling. A window air conditioning unit can effectively cool one room, but it isn’t a very effective solution for whole-house cooling. In a ducted system, the ductwork plays the important role of directing the airflow to different parts of the house, achieving temperature control from one end of your home to the other.
  • Aesthetics. One of the significant disadvantages of window units or wall-mounted split systems is that the air conditioning equipment is always visible. With a ducted system, the unit is typically outdoors, and the ducts are beneath the floor or in the ceiling. Everything is out of sight, which means the equipment won’t impair the aesthetic style of your space.
  • Zoning. Some ducted air conditioning systems incorporate zone control options. Especially for a bigger home, this feature is invaluable. It allows you to set different temperature preferences for various rooms throughout the house, which can help with comfort, energy usage and temperature consistency.

About Ducted Fujitsu Air Conditioning Installation

At Waldron Heating, Cooling & Hot Water, we offer air conditioner installation of numerous brands, including ducted options from Brivis, Braemar, Actron, Panasonic and Fujitsu. Brivis and Braemar are known in particular for their evaporative cooling systems, whereas Fujitsu is well-regarded in the refrigerated cooling space.

  • Fujitsu is Australia’s largest air conditioning supplier. If what you are looking for is a proven brand, it’s tough to beat Fujitsu. This company is Australia’s largest supplier of both ducted air conditioning systems and reverse cycle split systems.
  • Fujitsu offers multiple variations on its ducted system. There are four different ranges of ducted Fujitsu air conditioning installation available in Australia: the Bulkhead, the Slimline, the Single Phase and the Three Phase. Which range is right for you will depend on how much space your home has for ductwork, how many air ducts are necessary, and what you want in terms of zone control.
  • Five-year warranties back Fujitsu air conditioners. All domestic Fujitsu air conditioning systems sold in Australia come with five years of warranty coverage. Additionally, Waldron Heating, Cooling & Hot Water offers a six-year guarantee on work provided.
