How a Flash-Evaporative Cooler, Swamp Cooler and Misting Fan Differ
Have you ever been to an outdoor party or backyard barbecue where the hosts set up a big misting fan?
Sure, on a hot day such fans provide temporary relief. They’ll cool the immediate area and you’ll feel refreshed after the large water droplets that land on you evaporate.
But you’ll also likely wind up with wet clothes and possibly wet shoes. On a wood deck or concrete patio a misting fan creates a puddle where the heavy drops that didn’t land on someone fall and pool. It can be a hazard, which is why misting fans can’t be used safely indoors.
Flash-evaporative cooling safe indoors and more efficient
Misting fans are messy and inefficient because their goal is to disperse water – not improve its evaporation.
They use high pressure to push water through small spray nozzles, which creates large droplets that don’t evaporate and then land on nearby floors, furniture and people.
Instead, the patented CULER Flow Blurring® technology atomizes water into millions of micro-droplets to create thousands of times more surface area than pad-type evaporative air coolers.
Water particles of this size simply flash-evaporate – neatly, with no mess or puddles.
That makes the CULER flash-evaporative cooler safe and appropriate for indoor use as well as outside. Inside, they add comfort to an office, kitchen, playroom, den or screened porch and work best with an open window or other source of fresh air.
Swamp coolers demand more energy, maintenance
Traditional pad-based evaporative cooling is resource intense, messy and inefficient. Such “swamp coolers” demand significant amounts of electricity and water and need regular maintenance, including chemicals that treat the water.
Even then, the CULER Flow Blurring® technology outperforms a similar size, pad-type device.
Based on independent laboratory test data, CULER flash-evaporative air coolers produce significantly cooler air than similar size, pad-type devices. For example, with an ambient air temperature of 90º F and relative humidity of 25 percent, the air exiting a pad-type evaporative cooler was 4 degrees cooler than the ambient temperature, while the air exiting a CULER SOLO was 22 degrees cooler.
Unlike misting fans and pad-based “swamp coolers,” the CULER Home flash-evaporative cooler uses no chemicals and creates no mess. It has a compact design and low-impact energy footprint.
CULER is not a misting fan or a traditional pad-based evaporative cooler. In atomizing water into tiny micro-droplets it creates more surface area for better evaporation. Better evaporation means better cooling.
