Cool your Home Naturally


Evaporative Coolers work by combining the natural process of evaporation with a simple fan.  A fan blows water cooled outside air into the building and the warm air inside is then forced out – which is why you need to leave windows open while operating an evaporative cooler.


This continual air change offers important health benefits over refrigerated systems.  As it only circulates clean fresh air – it reduces the spread of air-borne infections and provides relief to asthma and allergy sufferers.  The water is constantly moving and drained, preventing buildup of any bacteria.  Because evaporative systems maintain the natural humidity level of the air, plants and your skin won’t dry out as they can with conventional air-conditioning.
