What is Evaporative Cooling?
Evaporative cooling is a system that uses evaporation to cool the air in your home. In an evaporative system, cooling pads are soaked with fresh water. Outside air is passed through these pads. The water absorbs heat from the air and evaporates, and the resulting cool air is then blown into your home using ductwork in the ceiling.
Evaporative coolers come with a few major benefits, especially in warm, dry regions like Adelaide:
- 50%-75% more energy efficient than reverse cycle air conditioning
- Simple designs mean they are easier to service
- Cost-effective method of cooling your entire home
- Cool air can be ducted throughout the house
- Windows and doors can be left open
- Provides a flow of fresh air

How to Use Your Evaporative Air Conditioner
Evaporative air conditioning is an efficient and effective way to cool your entire home. But evaporative cooling works differently to reverse cycle air conditioning and needs to be used correctly.
You can maximise the performance and efficiency of your evaporative cooler by:
- Running the system on its highest speed. Only turn the fan down if you get too cold. This won’t affect the amount of energy the system consumes.
- Open all internal doors when using the system during. Then, open the windows at the far side of the rooms you are using. This helps direct cool air through your home and prevent hot breezes from blowing in.
- Book your evaporative air conditioner service regularly. Pumps, filter pads and electronic components eventually need to be replaced, and faulty components can prevent your system from working effectively.

Evaporative Cooling FAQ
When should we replace the filter pads?
The filter pads in your evaporative cooler need to be replaced every 3-5 years. We also recommend cleaning the pads on a yearly basis. The pads may need to be replaced sooner if you live in an area with poor water quality or if they aren’t cleaned regularly.
There are a few common signs that it’s time to replace your filter pads:
- Obvious rips, cracks or fraying
- Excessive buildups of minerals like calcium
- Reduction in airflow
- Reduction in cooling capacity
- Build ups of mould and mildew
If you’re unsure when to replace evaporative cooler pads, contact your service technician. Some types of pads will need to be replaced more frequently. Your technician will be able to assess your unit and recommend a maintenance and replacement schedule.
How many windows and doors do I need to have open for my evaporative air conditioner to work effectively?
In each room with an evaporative cooling vent, you should open enough external doors and windows to create an opening that’s twice the size of the vent. You can improve cooling performance by opening windows that are furthest from the vent. This creates cross-ventilation that promotes airflow, improves cooling and prevents buildups of moisture in your home.
Can I control the amount of cooling in different areas of the home?
Yes. You can control which areas of the home you want to cool by opening or closing external doors and windows. Evaporative air conditioners create positive pressure in your home. Closing windows in the rooms you aren’t using redirects the airflow and provides cooling where it’s needed most.
While this trick is a good way to cool the parts of your home that are in use, always remember that evaporative coolers need airflow to work properly. Closing too many windows and doors will prevent the system from working effectively and create humidity issues.
Will buying an evaporative cooling system increase my water bill?
Evaporative cooling systems use fresh water to create cool air. This means you will see a small increase in your water bill when using your cooler. The increase in water usage is usually offset by reduced power consumption when compared to refrigerated air conditioners.
There is no easy way to estimate how much water your evaporative cooler will use. Water consumption depends on the size of the system, the climate in your area and how you use the system. Most systems will only use a small amount of water. Talk to your service technician if you’re concerned about the amount of water your evaporative air conditioner is using.
Can I use bore water in my evaporative air conditioning?
Yes. It’s usually okay to use bore water in an evaporative air conditioning system. Using bore water will require some modifications to the drain system and drain cycles. Bore water that’s high in minerals can shorten the life of filter pads and the system may need to be serviced more often. If your bore water can’t be used for cooling then you can use rainwater instead.
One of the biggest challenges facing evaporative coolers is the quality of the water in your area. Evaporative air conditioners typically need more frequent servicing in regions with hard water that contains high concentrations of minerals like calcium.
