What to Know about Keeping Your Place Cool with a Mist Cooling System
During the summer months when the weather is humid and hot, having an outdoor cooling system can make being outdoors more enjoyable and help avoid the physical discomforts. Misting is the best way to control hot summer conditions, because you can bring the temperature down and add moisture to the dry air at the same time.
When you're working outdoors in the hot summer months, whether it's in the garden or playing a friendly game of football, it's very easy to be overwhelmed by the heat of the sun. When your body temperature rises, you begin to sweat. This is your body's way of regulating its ability to cope with heat, and acts as a cooling mechanism to ensure that you do not overheat and become ill.
As we age, our ability to cope with the effects of extreme heat and humidity is greatly reduced, and this is most apparent around the age of 40. This puts each and every one us at risk of heat-related illness, including heat stroke and dehydration.
But who wants to change their lifestyle due to natural changes brought on by the aging process? Who should have to? If you live in an area that is plagued by extreme summer heat, there are solutions available to you. Our revolutionary mist cooling systems will provide you and your loved ones with the relief you need from the heat and humidity of those extreme temperatures. At Cool-Off LLC, we have a complete line of mist cooling systems to meet most every need and budget. Our most popular systems are permanent installations that require a power supply and access to water, but we have recently introduced a new self-contained portable mist cooling system that can be taken just about anywhere you might wish to take it.
People generally use misting fans for outdoor cooling in their gardens, patios and garages of their home as well as other commercial establishments like restaurants, fairs, hospitality tents, amusement parks, sports arenas etc.
Misting systems invariably work on the evaporation technique to produce ultra-fine mist that relieves the environment of the heat stress. When the water droplets are released into the hot air, they absorb the heat present in the air and get released as vapor. The change of liquid to gas creates a cooling effect known as evaporative cooling. Misting fans can be used outdoors and in areas where the use of air conditioners is not feasible.
Most cooling fans are easy to install, environment-friendly and inexpensive to maintain. Many misting fans strangely consume negligible quantities of water to produce maximum cooling effect. The cooling fans are of various types - high, medium and low pressures.
High pressure fans produce greater cooling effect which is more suitable for more expansive open spaces. High pressure system are generally operated at 900-1,000 pounds of pressure or more and are also the most expensive to purchase as the components used must be sturdy enough to endure such high pressure.
Mid pressure misting fans come in a wide variety of options for use at commercial and residential areas. Medium pressure systems are quite often the choice of homeowners because they are efficient and yet not cost prohibitive. These systems typically operate at 180 to 200 pounds of water pressure.
Low pressure misting systems can operate on the normal domestic water supply pressure. They are the least expensive type of system and their effectiveness is understandably limited. Furthermore, because of the lower water pressure, there is a possibility of a higher frequency of clogging necessitating greater maintenance.
The temperature reduction - whatever the type of misting system - largely depends on the humidity levels of the area to be cooled. The effect of fan is more needed in places with high humidity. The flexibility of portable fans allow users to place it in different areas where needed. A properly installed, quality mist system allows you to enjoy your open areas even on hottest days.
Any reputable mist company should be able to offer you all three types of misting systems, low, medium, and high pressure, and should also guide you decide which works best for your particular application.
Make it a point to select a licensed company that has been in the business of cooling systems for a long time. If you are purchasing online, you should verify that they list their full contact details with addresses, phone numbers, warranty instructions and customer support. There are many companies who don't even list these details so be cautious. You must also be sure they offer all replacement parts are easily available to contact for help after the sale.
A basic mist system will consist of an inline filter, tubing and nozzles. Always look for metal fittings and brass nozzles and avoid plastic components as metal is known to endure better in the extreme hot climate. As most systems are small, they will not in any way spoil the aesthetics of your exteriors.
