What is Evaporative Air Conditioning?

An evaporative air conditioner takes the hot outside air and forces it through moist pads that have been saturated by an internal water pump. As the hot outside air is drawn through the series of moist pads, water from the pads evaporates into the air which cools and humidifies it. The cool humidified air is then blown through the vents  located throughout your home providing you with your very own Freo Doctor on demand.

This simple but highly effective mechanism means that an evaporative aircon can cool your entire house down while using around 75% less energy than other air conditioners on average. With our dry summer air, an evaporative aircon is the perfect solution to combating the Perth heat.

Not only are evaporative aircons friendly on the wallet, they also have a far lower energy usage and use no potentially hazardous refrigerants. This makes evaporative aircons the most eco-friendly option for households across Perth.

With other air conditioning solutions, people often resort to trapping the cold air indoors and end up breathing stale and dry air in an effort to stay cool. However, evaporative cooling relies on the warm outside air to produce a cool breeze. This means they function best with a window or two open, keeping a constant supply of fresh and cool air flowing through your home. The increased moisture content in the air also takes care of the dry heat that Perth is famous for.

Repairs & Servicing

While evaporative air conditioners are ideal for the hot and dry Perth weather, it can be common for many Perth homeowners to go extended periods without using them in the winter months.

When it’s finally time to switch your evaporative or ducted air conditioning on, it pays to be prepared by ensuring it has been serviced and maintained regularly.
