Evaporative Air Conditioners and Dehumidifiers

Evaporative Air Conditioner

Recently I spoke to a customer about the humidity problems they were experiencing with their Evaporative Air Conditioner so it prompted me to write this article about how a dehumidifier can help.

Many homes throughout Australia have Evaporative Air Conditioners. These types of air conditioners are very efficient and are an effective way to keep your home cool during the hot dry days of Summer.

The Evaporative Air Conditioner is quite different to the common refrigerant type models. A large fan draws the hot dry air in to the AC unit which is located on the roof. As it draws air in it passes through wet honeycomb type pads which cools the air. The cool air is then ducted into each room of the house.

However… there’s a downside.

Whenever it rains or even when its overcast the Evaporative Air Conditioner struggles to cool the home because the Relative Humidity can soar to as much as 80 - 90% inside. Therefore the home does not feel as cool as it should and the comfort level has become somewhat diminished. The Evaporative AC is then less effective; in fact it can make the indoor climate conditions worse. Everything in your home can start feeling damp and clammy like your bedding, flooring even the clothes in your wardrobes. In some cases it can lead to mould problems throughout your home.

Solution?

My wife Chris and I spend a lot of time in the NSW city of Wagga Wagga. This lovely city can be very hot and dry during Summer however lately they have experienced thunder storms, rain and high humidity. The Evaporative AC was working overtime until we started running our Ausclimate Dehumidifier. It removed a huge of the moisture/humidity therefore allowing the AC to function much more effectively. At one stage our NWT Large Home Dehumidifier was collecting an amazing 1 litre of water per hour and that was continuously over 2 days. Imagine that much water building up in your home!

If you live in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane in fact anywhere in Australia and you find your Evaporative Air Conditioner is struggling with humidity consider using an NWT Dehumidifier from Ausclimate www.ausclimate.com.au.

We're sure you’ll feel the difference.

Wet weather camping & your dehumidifier

Camping Trip Dehumidifier

It's that time of the year again & we've already experienced our share of extreme wet weather, but we're determined not to let it take away from our holidays!

Last week my son, Cameron (pictured) got his fill of rain on a QLD camping trip. Lucky for him, upon his return he made great use of his Ausclimate Dehumidifier; drying out both his 4-wheel drive & his camping gear. This important step eliminated the moisture & prevented any potential nasty surprises for next time. He's already excited for his next trip tomorrow!

Make sure to follow suit with your Dehumidifier next time to get the most out of your camping gear and enjoy your next camping trip. Please refer to our previous camping gear post for step-by-step instructions. And as always if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Allan or myself for expert advice and custom solutions for all of your moisture problems.

Get more out of your Air Conditioner with a Dehumidifier!

Ausclimate On-Location Update:

Charlestown Square Shopping Centre, Charlestown NSW(Monday 28/10 – Sunday 3/11)

It feels like summer already and our air conditioners will be working overtime in the coming months. Did you know that in rooms with high humidity, you can use your Dehumidifier in conjunction with your air-con to improve the comfort level of your rooms more effectively?

Air conditioners have to work a lot harder when they are trying to reduce room temperature as well as lowering humidity. By reducing your humidity level with your Ausclimate Dehumidifier, the air conditioner's thermostat can be set higher, therefore running less while still maintaining an ideal comfort level & perhaps most importantly, reducing air-con running costs!

Next time on a hot, steamy day get more out of your air conditioner AND reduce your running costs by trying out this handy tip from Ausclimate.
