Evaporative_CoolerAn evaporative cooler (also known as swamp cooler, desert cooler and wet air cooler) is a device that cools air through the evaporation of water. Evaporative cooling differs from typical air conditioning systems which use vapor-compression or absorption refrigeration cycles. Evaporative cooling works by employing water’s large enthalpy of vaporization. The temperature of dry air can be dropped significantly through the phase transition of liquid water to water vapor (evaporation), which can cool air using much less energy than refrigeration. In extremely dry climates, evaporative cooling of air has the added benefit of conditioning the air with more moisture for the comfort of building occupants.

Evaporative cooling is especially well suited for climates where the air is hot and humidity is low. In the United States, Arizona and the western/mountain states are good locations, with evaporative coolers also prevalent in cities like Denver, Salt Lake City, Albuquerque, El Paso, Tucson, and Fresno. In dry, arid climates, the installation and operating cost of an evaporative cooler can be much lower than that of refrigerative air conditioning, often by 80% or so. However, evaporative cooling and vapor-compression air conditioning are sometimes used in combination to yield optimal cooling results. Some evaporative coolers may also serve as humidifiers in the heating season.

There are many advantages of evaporative air conditioning in Arizona. One advantage is installation cost, as evaporative coolers are less expensive to install. In fact, the estimated cost for installation of a swamp or evaporative cooler is about half that of central refrigerated air conditioning. Evaporative coolers are also less expensive to operate. The operating costs are estimated to be over half that of refrigerated air. Power consumption is limited to the fan and water pump. Because the water vapor is not recycled, there is no compressor that consumes most of the power in closed-cycle refrigeration. With evaporative cooling the refrigerant is water. No special refrigerants, such as ammonia, sulfur dioxide or CFCs, are used that could be toxic, expensive to replace, contribute to ozone depletion and/or be subject to stringent licensing and environmental regulations. The only two mechanical parts in most basic evaporative coolers are the fan motor and the water pump, both of which can be repaired at low cost and often by a mechanically inclined homeowner.

Evaporative cooling increases humidity. In dry climates, this may improve comfort and decrease static electricity problems. The pad itself acts as a rather effective air filter when properly maintained; it is capable of removing a variety of contaminants in the air, including urban ozone caused by pollution, regardless of very dry weather. Refrigeration-based cooling systems lose this ability whenever there is not enough humidity in the air to keep the evaporator wet while providing a constant trickle of condensate that washes out dissolved impurities removed from the air.
