Choosing the right outdoor cooling system for your home
27 Feb 2016 Helen Smith

As the desire to create a beautiful and useful outdoor living space has edged its way up the priority list for many new homeowners and renovators’, there has been a surge in the popularity of mist cooling systems. Once confined to the high end of the market, outdoor cooling systems have become widely popular and choosing the right misting system will help lower the temperature in your outdoor space to a refreshing and comfortable level.

If you are considering a mist cooling system for your home, here a few essential things you need to know before you begin.

Which type of mist cooling system is best for me?

Low-pressure mist cooling system
If you are looking for a quick, low cost misting system then a low pressure misting system is a good choice providing that you are willing to compromise on the quality of mist and residual moisture. A low-pressure system requires no power and runs directly off a tap-using city pressure 40-60 psi. The droplets emitted from these systems are not as fine as high-pressure systems so the evaporation process is slower and also increases the chances of dampness on the floor, furniture and you. 

When choosing a low-pressure system look for a high quality product. Durability is key, why spend money if it won’t last. Check that the tubing is flexible and has been UV treated. Make sure fittings can be purchased separately and connect easily together. The orifice size of the nozzles is very important as low-grade nozzles produce larger droplets. A good supplier of these systems will have individual components readily available for expansion of your system.

High-pressure mist cooling system
However, if you are looking for a system with a greater cooling capacity without any residue then investing in a high-pressure mist cooling system makes sense. These systems use a pump that operate at around 1,000 psi and emit a micro-fine cool mist that evaporates instantly to absorb the heat from the surrounding air. One of the advantages of these professional mist systems has over low-pressure systems is better cooling. Because they produce billions of droplets to cover a large surface area, they have three times greater cooling power and lower the temperature up to 15°C.

Will a mist cooling system blend with my décor?
Innovation combined with advanced technologies means that there is a good range of decor options available to integrate with the high pressure pump and suit the architectural style of your home. 

Misting lines constructed from strong, durable UV treated nylon is available in black or white. You can upgrade to satin stainless steel for a more elegant look and permanent misting line that will just about last forever. Alternatively misting fans are available with wall or pedestal options. If more flexibility is needed portable stand-alone mist fans with an on-board high pressure pump and water tank can be considered. More recently 360°misting options with or without LED lights can be hung from the ceiling for a more decadent look.

Find an expert in the misting field
When choosing your system, look for a reputable dealer that understands your needs and has a thorough knowledge of their product. These professionals will work with you, whether it’s in person, over the phone or website. They know you’ll have a lot of questions and know the ins and outs to be aware of and any refinements that may be required.  Together you can determine what your needs are and the best way to address them. By doing this you will get a professional, well-designed and quality mist cooling system suited to your budget and avoid being disappointed in a system that just doesn’t measure up to your needs.
