Running Costs

Breezair cooling systems will save you up to 87% on running costs

The only power-consuming components of a direct evaporative cooler are the fan and a small water pump. Evaporative air conditioning uses between up to 87% less energy than conventional air conditioning; it brings in 100% fresh outside air and utilises water for cooling instead of synthetic chemical refrigerants (CFC’s, HFC’s and HCFC’s). There are no CFC pollutant emissions from evaporative air conditioning and water consumption is moderate. That all adds up to very responsible environmental and energy saving characteristics.

Conventional air-conditioning impacts significantly on a building’s operating costs as it uses in excess of 25% of the building’s energy consumption. It therefore makes sense to employ Evaporative Air Cooling, a far more energy efficient system, to create a pleasant environment for workers to maximise productivity whilst at the same time minimising energy costs.

Evaporative cooling is fast becoming the most efficient option when cooling large areas. Air conditioning is not such a viable option, because in warehouses or industrial plants for example, the capital and running costs would be extremely prohibitive for end-users. Many companies have already given trust to Evaporative Cooling and to Breezair: indeed, these coolers have been installed in printing facilities, electronic manufacturing industries, automotive assembly lines and showrooms, ceramics, food industries, warehouses.

*Based on approximate running cost figures per annum sourced from Sustainability Victoria – see its Cooling Fact Sheet at www.sustainability.vic.gov.au. Assumes a whole house area of 166 square metres, with 300 hours usage, a 60% duty cycle for air conditioners, and an electricity tariff of 28 cents/kWh. No brand names are mentioned in the Sheet. Note that evaporative coolers also use water.
