Does evaporative air conditioning work in humid climates?
Evaporative air conditioning relies on the basic principles of evaporation, where warm or hot air passes through water which evaporates to lower the air temperature. To read more about the science behind evaporative air conditioning, click here.
For evaporation to take place, humidity needs to be below 100%, so the air can begin to absorb water. Air can hold a certain amount of water vapour, and the degree of water absorption will depend on how much it is already ‘holding’.
In humid climates, Breezair can provide comfort by increasing the airflow. Breezair units include a Hushpower® motor and a unique centrifugal fan to increase the flow of air via ducts throughout the house.
Evaporative air conditioning works especially well in areas that record mostly hot and dry conditions, as the humidity in the air is typically low.
In climates that have high humidity and high temperature simultaneously, evaporative air conditioning may not be the most effective cooling solution.
