Screened Venting & Cooling all in one!
Evaporative air coolers, also called pad or swamp coolers, have proven to be the most effective cooling system for a greenhouse short of an air conditioner. It pumps water over the special cooling pads which lowers the temperature of air passing through them. A powerful blower pulls air through these pads and pushes the cooled air into the greenhouse. Hot air can be exhausted through roof vents or exhaust shutters and automated with one of our plug-in thermostats. The cooling pads also act as a filter and help keep out unwanted insects, dust, and pollen. Coolers have a 2 speed fan which can be used for ventilation with or without wetting the pads. Coolers come with Aspen pads and a water hose connection kit for constant water supply. Requires a standard 110/120 volt outlet.

How an Evaporative Swamp Cooler Works
Nature's most efficient means of cooling is through the evaporation of water. A simple example is the cooling you feel when stepping out of a swimming pool- the water evaporates quickly from your body, taking heat with it. Our coolers do essentially the same thing by drawing hot air through wet pads using a blower. As water evaporates from the pads, it takes heat from the air with it, resulting in up to 30 degree cooler air being discharged from the cooler.

Cooling Temperatures
An evaporative cooler will normally deliver air cooler than 80 degrees F. In addition, the constant air movement created by the cooler lowers the temperature perceived by room occupants - called the "effective temperature" - by an additional 4 to 6 degrees below actual air temperature. Finally, an evaporative cooler works best in the hottest time of the day. This is because relative humidity drops as temperature increases. For example, a morning relative humidity of 60 percent at 75 degrees will drop to only 31 percent when the afternoon temperature reaches 95 degrees.

Works Better Than Expected!

This really is a unique item. I was very skeptical about spending this much on a glorified fan. How surprised I was that this really does lower the temp vs an exhaust fan that I was using. This truly is one of those things that I wish I had known about sooner.

I give this 5 stars because it cools my greenhouse so well, Just what I was looking for ,Keeps everything cool. Is not loud and so worth the money that we had spent on. Customer service was awesome. First one delivered to my house was in pieces, called customer service and 2 days later I had another on my doorstep. All in good shape and ready to put in the greenhouse and plug in. Best customer service, great product and so within my budget.

Wow! What a difference this thing makes. The roof vents in my greenhouse were just not cutting it. It was still about 20 degrees hotter in the greenhouse than it was outside. I was going to add an exhaust fan until I talked to Eric at ACF. He said an evaporative cooler would work much better with roof vents, so I took his advice and purchased it instead. I am so glad I did. The air coming out of the cooler feels like I have an air conditioner in the greenhouse, but these use much less electricity. It is actually pleasant working in my greenhouse now. Thanks ACF!
