For those that live in dry climates, there will be a choice between opting for either traditional central air conditioning systems or installing an evaporative cooling system. While evaporative cooling can be an effective option, there are some important advantages that a central air conditioning system will be able to provide.
Avoid Humidity-Related Performance Problems
In order for an evaporation cooler to work, the humidity will need to be extremely low. Over the course of the day, it may be possible for the humidity level to naturally fluctuate enough to prevent the system from cooling the home. In fact, an evaporation cooler can actually make the interior fo the home feel worse in these situations as it can cause the air to become unbearably humid. A central air conditioning system will largely be unaffected by changes in the humidity levels. In fact, these systems are actually able to remove humidity from the air, which can help to make your home's interior feel more comfortable on days when the outside humidity is extremely high.
Provide More Rapid Cooling
An evaporative cooler will be able to lower the temperature in your home, but these systems will largely need longer to be able to effectively lower the temperature when the interior of the home has already gotten uncomfortably warm. This is due to the fact that the coolness of the air will be limited by the amount of evaporation that is occurring. Central air conditioning systems will be able to provide more intense cooling, which can ensure the interior of the house is cooled as rapidly as possible. This can be especially important for those that live in areas where the temperatures can become extremely hot during the day, as it may be possible for the heat to actually overwhelm the evaporation air conditioning system.
Reduce The Risk Of Water Damage From The Cooling System
To function, an evaporation cooler will need to continuously pump water over a wicking material. This is necessary to ensure that the wick is always moist when air is blowing over it. Unfortunately, these pumping systems can malfunction, which may result in sizable leaks occurring that may cause extensive water damage to the interior of the home. This is especially problematic, as these units will often be located in an area that may make it hard to check on the system, which could allow these problems to go unnoticed. While central air conditioning systems will produce condensation as a byproduct of cooling the air, the primary unit will be located outside so that it can safely drain away.
