Environmental Benefits

Better for the environment, better for you

Breezair evaporative coolers, manufactured and designed by Seeley International, are one of the most environmentally beneficial methods of cooling available and offer a range of health benefits.

We have worked hard to ensure the technology in each Breezair unit is industry-leading, so that we can assure each and every customer that their choice to use evaporative cooling is safer for the environment, compared to refrigerated air conditioning.

Every time a customer chooses a Breezair evaporative cooler over a refrigerated system, the benefits for the environment are significant.

Environmental Benefits

Lower electricity usage

Evaporative coolers use far less electricity compared to refrigerated systems therefore, less fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas are consumed in the production of electricity.

Zero production of CFCs or HFCs

Evaporative cooling systems contain no harmful synthetic refrigerants. Compare this to refrigerated systems which use potent greenhouse gases like hydro fluorocarbons or chlorofluorocarbons, which deplete the ozone layer.

Less Greenhouse Gas Production

If you choose to install a Breezair, you can be sure that the unit will produce approximately the 15% of the carbon emissions produced by a standard refrigerated air conditioning system. Breezair is extremely environmental friendly and it is based on a natural technology to cool the air without damaging or depleting the planet.

The evidence is clear. By choosing Breezair, you can help reduce the amount of harmful greenhouse emissions entering our environment.
