In areas of the country where the heat is excessive but the humidity is equally excessive, an evaporative cooler will not work properly
I never knew there was a special kind of climate control unit uniquely suited for hot and dry regions. I guess I had never really thought all that creatively, and just assumed that central air conditioning was the way to go. Central air conditioner units can certainly get the job done. In dryer regions, however, it’s a good idea to pair them with a humidifier. This ensures that not only are you getting cool air, but you’re also adding back the moisture into the air that you need to keep the humidity levels comfortable. However, I recently found out that there’s a way to create the same situation without having to rely on a traditional central air conditioner and humidifier combo. Instead, you can use what’s called a swamp cooler. A swamp cooler, or more formally, an evaporative cooler, draws in the outside air and it sends it through a series of moist pads so that the air is cooled by evaporation and then circulated throughout the house. Evaporative coolers are both low cost and quite energy efficient. As I said, this climate control system is uniquely suited to particularly hot and arid regions. In areas of the country where the heat is excessive but the humidity is equally excessive, an evaporative cooler will not work properly. Whatever the situation you find yourself in when it comes to climate, regulating both the temperatures and the humidity will make the air in your home more pleasant and breathable and increase your quality of life. If you live in a hot and arid region, consider using an evaporative cooler for your home.
