During the heat of the summer months, relief can be found from the sweltering heat by using outdoor cooling systems. It is like having outdoor air-conditioning providing comfort and protection while you enjoy your patio, backyard, deck, awning or any other outdoor structure. Outdoor cooling allows restaurants to ulitize their outdoor patios more during the day.
The most popular and type of outdoor cooling system to install are misting systems. Misting systems are available in a large variety of sizes, configurations, and degrees of effectiveness. The general rule is that higher the atomization or pressure (psi) of the water, the better is the outdoor cooling and the lesser is the wetness of the mist.
Generally speaking there are three different options when using misting systems for outdoor cooling. You can install a low pressure misting system for outdoor cooling that directly connects to your water source with a hose. A mid-pressure misting system places a pump between the nozzles and increases the pressure up to the 300 psi. A high pressure misting system pushes water through the small nozzles at a pressure between 800 and 1000 psi and provides the most outdoor cooling without wetness. This last one is a professional high-pressure misting system and is always the best choice, but also the most expensive one.
Outdoor cooling systems also include the use of evaporative cooling fans such as the WayCool unit that use large fans to blow cold air over great distances… These units use the principles of evaporative cooling, but are not designed to push out a mist. Other outdoor cooling products include misting fans, patio fans, ventilation systems and forced air systems. In general, outdoor cooling systems generally work in all humidity levels. However to achieve optimum outdoor cooling, different combinations of cooling, misting and air need to be installed. You will need to consult with an outdoor cooling expert so that the best climate control results are attained.
