economical way to pump fresh, cool air throughout the house

Why choose a ducted evaporative cooler?

Evaporative coolers are a very popular choice in climates such as Perth’s where we have long, hot dry summers. Correctly Designed evaporative coolers work by constantly refreshing the air inside your home, on average every 2-3 minutes. Fresh air is drawn in from outside and then cooled rapidly by drawing the air through a wet pad. This cools the air by up to 12 degrees , which is then pushed into your home under pressure, and pushing the hot stale air out of your home through the windows and doors in your home.

Evaporative systems are made up of several parts, not just a machine. At Value Air we only use the best quality Australia Made ducting and fittings, as well as top brand machines to ensure all our systems function perfectly for many years to come.

Ducted Evaporative Cooling

Pros & Cons

The Pros:

  • Evaporative cooling is very inexpensive to run , averaging electricity costs of as low as 0.15c per hour in some units.
  • There is a constant stream of fresh air through the home, making the inside feel fresh and alive.
  • Evaporative units are generally very simple in design, and are easily and inexpensively repaired if necessary.
  • Evaporative coolers work best with the house open. As the old stale air needs to be pushed out of the building, having a few windows open a little, or using your screen door to ventilate the house will only help the system to function.

The Cons:

  • Evaporative cooling is effected by humidity levels in the air, and cool less on humid days.
  • Evaporative coolers do have a limited lifespan, typically around 10-15 years, after which period it is best to replace the machines
  • Coolers should be cleaned every year and serviced at least every second year.
  • The pads inside the cooler are considered to be consumable part, and should be replaced every 5-7 years. A set of pads will typically cost $400-$600 to replace.
