Evaporative Cooler Environmental Benefits

Evaporative coolers offer a few environmental benefits. Mainly, evaporative coolers use a relatively low amount of energy to cool your home. In fact, they use between one-tenth and one-third of the energy that air conditioners use. As a replacement for AC, coolers can help to curb your home’s overall greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, evaporative coolers don’t use ozone-depleting chemicals. Evaporative coolers are also a fairly quiet method of cooling. Nevertheless, some evaporative coolers use a large volume of water to operate, especially if they have a bleed line. You can reduce the amount of water used and lessen the environmental impact of your evaporative cooler by looking at the Best Ways to Save & Drought Tips page.
