What is Evaporative Cooling?

Evaporative Cooling is a popular whole-house cooling solution for Geelong & Melbourne homes.

Evaporative Coolers, also known as Evaporative Air Conditioners, are a cooling unit which sits on top of your roof and is connected to a series of ducts and outlets throughout your home.

The rooftop unit draws in fresh outdoor air.  The air travels through dampened pads, cooling and filtering it of dust and other pollutants. This gives the cooled air a fresh, natural feel.

A fan pushes the cool air throughout the house via a series of ducts and vents. This is where science takes over. You need to open windows in the rooms you want cooled. The incoming cool air pushes the hot air out of the window. Now you have a cool, refreshing breeze running through your house.

As they only need electricity to run a fan and water pump, Evaporative Cooling is extremely energy efficient, with running costs often compared to that of a ceiling fan!

As Evaporative Cooling relies on evaporating moisture from wet filter pads, they work best in dry heat, making them a popular choice for Victorian homes.

Evaporative Coolers sit on top of your roof.

They need a dedicated series of ducts in your roof, with outlets in your ceiling.

For this reason, your house needs to have room in your roof for the ducts.

Placement of your Evaporative Cooler is very important for future servicing and warranty purposes. Don’t risk a non-compliant install, ensure your installers are familiar with manufacturer and OHS requirements!

In order to work out which size Evaporative Cooler is required for your home, a member from our design team will need to carry out Cooling Load Calcuation. Both Kilowatts and Airflow Litres Per Second  need to be determined to find the right model for your home.

The calculation takes into consideration the size of the rooms required to be cooled, as well as the ceiling height.

Evaporative Cooling Features

Evaporative Cooling is by far the most economical way to cool your house.

It is up to 75% more energy efficient than refrigerated cooling.

As Evaporative Coolers only use electricity to run and fan and water pump, their running costs have been compared to the cost of running a ceiling fan!

Evaporative Coolers do not recycle air, they continuously draw fresh air from outside.

As the air is drawn into the Evaporative Cooler, it is filtered by water, removing impurities and pollens from the air.

You can also use your Evaporative Cooler in fan-only mode, effectively turning your cooler into a whole-house fan.

A great way to circulate fresh air throughout your home.

Choice of 3 colours – Charcoal, Terracotta Red & Beige

Available in both Classic profile & Slimline profile, which are sloped to sit against your roof.

There are different wall-mounted controllers for different budgets and feature requirements.

For those who like a simple on/off with fan and temperature control, there are basic manual controllers.

Programmable wall controllers such as Brivis’ NC6 allow for more control over your system and use of features such as WIFI, daily and weekly programs and allow you to also control your Brivis Gas Ducted Heater.

For technology fans, you can upgrade to a touchscreen such as Brivis’ NC7 touch.
