Ducted Evaporative Airconditioner in Ballarat


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.
