Portable Air Coolers: Perfect for Providing Comfort Inside Your Home
If you live in a climate that needs to be cooled in order for you to feel comfortable, you may be thinking that an air conditioner is the only option in those situations. The truth is there is an alternative to air conditioning: evaporative air coolers. This type of cooling system works through the process of water evaporation. In dry and hot climates, evaporative coolers can offer a more efficient way to keep comfortable. These types of devices also require less amounts of energy in order to keep them operating.
For portable air cooling solutions, an evaporative air cooler can be the right choice in certain situations. Older homes that may not have central air conditioning installed often have to rely on window air conditioning units. You may find a window air cooler that uses evaporation much more cost-effective and efficient. You can also go with the type of evaporative air cooler that doesn’t require window access, a floor cooler model. With the added feature of a fan, you can get instant relief from the hot weather with these coolers.
Easy and Cost-Effective Cooling
The technology for evaporative air coolers is not new to today’s world. Even ancient civilizations relied on the process of water evaporation to help cool them off in the most extreme temperatures. In the early 1900s, many inventors began working with evaporative air coolers in order to create a solution for the stifling heat that homeowners experienced in some parts of the country. Before modern air conditioning systems were installed in automobiles, some car owners equipped their vehicles with evaporative coolers that attached to a car window. These car coolers were effective, however, they were large and cumbersome, so once a ventilating air conditioning process was developed for vehicles, the car cooler began to lose popularity. Today, evaporative air cooling may be part of a home’s system in some parts of the country where the humidity levels are low. Areas in the western part of the country, such as Arizona or Colorado, may have more effective cooling in their homes with evaporative technology.
If you have a choice between a traditional air conditioner and an evaporative air cooler, the biggest reason why some choose the evaporation model is due to price. Traditional air conditioners may cost a bit more during the initial purchase. The cost of running an air conditioner must be considered as well. Most people find out that a cooler using evaporation uses much less energy than the typical air conditioner. During the height of the summer, this may be great news for your utility bill.
Another thing that evaporative air cooler users like about their products is that these devices produce a smaller impact on the environment. With a conventional air conditioner, the air must be cooled with a chemical refrigerant, which then gets released into the air’s atmosphere microscopically. Evaporative models don’t rely on chemicals, rather, they use a natural process of water evaporation in order to produce cold air. The only resources that are needed in order to operate an evaporative cooler are water and motion, which can be provided with a little bit of electricity. This can help make your home produce less pollutants into the air around you and keep the planet healthier for the next generation.
Finally, evaporative air coolers can also be beneficial to your skin and hair. Living in a dry climate can be incredibly taxing to your complexion, nails and hair. With an evaporative air cooler, you can keep your body hydrated even more and give your skin and nails an instant moisturizing treatment. This may also be helpful to those who suffer from dry or itchy throats throughout the year.
Explore Some of the Cooling Options
The next step is to start looking at the different options that are available for evaporative air coolers. You need to consider the size of your room and decide if you want to go with a cooler that is attached to a window or one that can sit inside of the room’s floor space. If you want to be able to move your cooler from room to room, you may want to opt with one that doesn’t require a window.
Once you’ve chosen your air cooler, you can begin to feel cool and comfortable again, even during the hottest months of the year. Best of all, you don’t have to feel guilty about your appliance producing harmful fumes that could impact the planet.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
