We are investigating cooling options for our house at the moment. I am wondering what experience fellow rioters have with evaporative cooling, and whether it will keep the place cool enough on those really hot summer days and nights.
We are currently tossing up between evaporative cooling and air conditioning. I can’t seem to find an answer on how cool the inside of a place would be in 40 degree heat with evaporative cooling in a climate like Canberra. The price for installation is comparable with a couple of air conditioner units, but the running costs are so much lower than air conditioning.
Any ideas? What would / did you choose and why?
