Misting fans represent an excellent alternative cooling option to air conditioners.
The world’s demand for energy is steadily increasing on a yearly basis. More and more people want energy, but the supply is just not keeping up with people’s needs. Right now, the world is in a state of flux as countries and companies are looking for a sustainable solution to their energy problems.
In the meantime, people are looking for alternatives to air conditioners given just how expensive they can be to run. This is where mist fans come in.
Most people are hesitant to pour money into mist fans. It is understandable and reasonable for consumers to be vigilant about how they spend their money. Those that need a little bit more convincing will appreciate the information that they will get below. It might just help in knowing which misting fans to get.
Understanding the building materials
Any object is only as sturdy as the materials that it is made with. A bridge brilliantly designed and built with the hands of the best craftsmen will still collapse and fall if it uses shoddy building material. This is the very reason why consumers need to be aware of the kind of mist fan they plan on getting.
Two kinds of materials are used to build mist fans. There are only two kinds of mist fans to choose from, plastic or metal.
Plastic mist fans are ideal for indoor use. They are not as sturdy as the metal mist fans which means consumers ought to avoid them if they plan to employ their mist fans for outdoor use. Plastic mist fans cannot withstand the punishment of the outdoors in the long run. The nice thing about plastic mist fans is that they are cheaper than metal mist fans.
Metal mist fans are the ideal option for those looking for an outdoor cooling solution. Metal mist fans are very durable. Unlike plastic mist fans, metal mist fans can take the punishment that outdoor use inflicts on mist fans. The downside to using metal misting fans is that they are more expensive than the plastic mist fans.
Type of pressure system employed
Every mist fan uses a water pressure system to mix water with air. The question is which water system a person ought to choose. There are two options to consider. The two water systems available to people are nozzle or centrifugal water systems.
Nozzle water systems are great for those who want to feel a fine mist on their face. The downside is that nozzle mist fans require a certain degree of maintenance. This is a result of the nozzle getting clogged from hard water. If a person is diligent and does not mind the maintenance involved with a nozzle mist fan, then this is the option for them.
Centrifugal misting fans are quite different from those that use nozzle systems. It has advantages over the nozzle system, but also certain disadvantages. Centrifugal mist fans employ plates which prevent the fan from getting clogged. This translates into reduced maintenance and a smoother and more consistent operation. The downside is that the mist quality produced by centrifugal mist fans tends to be on the dry side.
Benefits of using a mist fan
Mist fans offer their owners and users a lot of benefits and advantages that consumers ought to know.
People want a cooling solution that does not burn a hole through their wallet. Mist fans are a lot cheaper to operate than air conditioners.
Any piece of technology has a social cost. This can be measured by the private cost, the actual money spent by a person in using their appliance, and the external cost, costs which are not immediately apparent. Using an air conditioner has the side effect of producing gases which are harmful to the environment. Those who want a cleaner and better environment will be happy to know that misting fans produce no such side effects.
