I have found over the years that Breeze Heating and Cooling Engineers are very consistent, and I have been very impressed with the response and professionalism from the whole crew from the boss down to the apprentice.Julie Rodriguez
When we go to beach, we feel cold on a very hot day, that's the basic principle of evaporation of water on the surface and takes the latent heat out from surrounding and lowers the temperature due to evaporation. Same, if we put a drop of water in hand as the water evaporates we feel cold. An evaporative cooler works on same principle as we use wetted filter pad to evaporate water and fan to force the air circulation. These devices cool by evaporating water. A fan draws the warm air from outside through a series of wet filter pads. The air's heat evaporates the water, cooling and humidifying the air, which is then blown into the house. It’s important to ensure a good ventilation so the humid air doesn't accumulate inside. The higher the outside humidity the less efficiently evaporative coolers work, as the humid air from outside won't be able to evaporate much more water from the filter pads - size doesn't really matter. Of course, a larger and a more powerful air cooler will have a stronger air flow and be able to blow cool air over a larger area, but essentially they don't need to be matched to the size of the area like air conditioners do. Unlike air conditioners, you don't have to seal the room or house. In fact, you need to keep a couple of windows or a window and door open because the cooler needs this air flow; it sits in front of an open window or external door and draws the outside air through it.
Evaporative Coolers require a routine maintenance including springtime start up, and more importantly, wintertime shut down to prevent freezing of the water line. We will perform a full start-up on the cooler when we install it, then perform the winterization when you schedule it this fall. We will also return next spring to perform another full start-up to prepare for next summer.
Risk of contracting legionnaire’s disease is extremely low by running of Evaporative Coolers. There has never been a documented case of infection by Evaporative Coolers and they have been used worldwide for many years. The bacteria causing Legionnaires disease are very common, but only build up to dangerous concentrations in warm stagnant water. Maintenance is critical for evaporative coolers at the end of summer. Otherwise, there is a risk of legionnaire’s disease. We can organise a service contract for all types of Evaporative Coolers.
