Mister is a cooling system that incorporates a spray nozzle with a pump system to produce droplets of water in the air. When these droplets come into contact with the hot air, they convert into gas and reduce the temperature significantly.
Will the misting system work in a humid climate?
The main idea behind misting systems is to be able to provide comfort during hot weather and humid climate. The system works any time there is evaporation. Remember that the more complete the evaporation the more effective it is in cooling the area. Misting fans can reduce the temperature in areas that have 80% humidity can reduce of about 10 degrees. Areas that have 40% humidity can experience as much as 35 degrees reduction.
Can an existing fan be reused in a misting system?
Yes, misting rings can be attached to your existing fans and turn them into an effective cooling system. Your fans can also be transformed into effective air movers. You will need to acquire additional pressure pump system and pressure hoses which can be attached to your existing fans. Fortunately, there fan kits which can be bought in the market.
Will the misting system make the area wet?
No. Once a mister is properly attached, the water droplets should be able to evaporate before it reaches any surface. You can also purchase a misting fan that is designed to produce a specific amount of mist so that you can customize the cooling options.
What type of maintenance is required for a misting system?
Misting systems generally require lesser amount of maintenance aside from the regular cleaning and changing of nozzle heads. You also have to change the oil after the first 50 hours of use and change it every 500 hours after the first oil change. The number of times that you need to change the filter largely depends on the water quality being used in the pump. However, regardless of the water quality, the filter cartridges should be changed once a year. Water conditioning kits are available in the market in case you experience nozzle failures.
What is better, high pressure or low pressure?
The choice between acquiring high or low pressure mister depends on your main purpose of purchasing the cooling system in the first place. High pressure cooling system can reduce the temperature by as much as 35 degrees Fahrenheit. The mister can also give you a fogging effect to your landscape. Also, a high pressure fan is more effective in evaporating water droplets.
Low pressure misting fans on the other hand is more applicable to small and indoor establishments. These fans are also generally cheaper than high pressure fans. While the low misting system do not offer the same amount of benefits as the high pressure misting fan, it is still better than having no cooling system during the summer.
How much fog does a high pressure misting fan produce?
A high pressure misting system can create a lot of fog even with the lowest nozzle misting rate. Remember that the fog can be dense especially if there is no air to circulate it. If you do not wish to create thick fog, it is better to stick with a low pressure misting fan instead.
Why is a high pressure misting system more effective in cooling the surroundings?
High pressure fans create finer water droplets which can flash evaporate quickly in the air. The more water droplets that evaporate, the cooler the air will be. More mist evaporates in a high pressure system than a low pressure one.
Is low pressure mister still worth it?
Yes. Not everyone is willing to invest in high pressure misting fans that can only be used for few months. The benefit of purchasing a low pressure misting fan is that you get the cooling effects of the mist and the fan. You can also use the system without water to properly circulate the warm air around you.
