Environmental Benefits

Better for the environment, better for you

Seeley International has produced a product that is one of the most environmentally beneficial methods of cooling available and offers a range of health benefits.

We have worked hard to ensure the technology in each Breezair air conditioning unit is industry-leading, so our customers can rest assured that their choice to use evaporative cooling is safer for the environment, compared to refrigerated air conditioning.

Every time a customer chooses a Breezair evaporative air conditioner over a refrigerated system, the benefits for the environment are significant.

Environmental Benefits

Lower electricity usage

Evaporative air conditioners use far less electricity compared to refrigerated systems therefore, less fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas are consumed in the production of electricity.

Zero production of CFCs or HFCs

Evaporative air conditioning systems contain no harmful synthetic refrigerants. Compare this to refrigerated systems which use potent greenhouse gases like hydro fluorocarbons or chlorofluorocarbons, which deplete the ozone layer.

Less Greenhouse Gas Production

The power consumption of just one ducted reverse cycle air conditioner can result in up to 1.6 tonnes of harmful CO2 being pumped into the atmosphere each year. A Breezair evaporative air conditioner is so efficient it produces less than one tenth of this volume^

The evidence is clear. By choosing Breezair, you can help reduce the amount of harmful greenhouse emissions entering our environment.
