The Science of Evaporative Cooling
Technically known as “latent heat of evaporation”, evaporative cooling is based on a physical phenomenon where liquid evaporating into surrounding air cools a liquid or object that is in contact with it. Think of it like how sweating cools the body. However, for evaporative cooling to be effective, a high evaporation rate is needed. This is why evaporative coolers are best in areas with dry, arid climates instead of humid ones.
Evaporative coolers use water because it is an exceptional coolant, easily evaporating in most climates. In fact, six water gallons evaporating has the same cooling effect as a standard (3.5 ton-hour) central air conditioner for homes. Aside from being effective at cooling, utilizing water means evaporative coolers do away with harmful synthetic refrigerants, making them safer for you and the environment.
