Summer months can be unbearable without the use of cooling systems. A mister is one of the best options in cooling areas during the warm weather. The fan sprinkles fine mist in the air and is spread out in the fan. The fine mist cools the air and provides a similar feeling to that of an air conditioner or air cooler.
Misting fans are efficient and portable options for temperature control in different areas. These fans are more economical than air conditioners and humidifiers since they are easier to set up and require less maintenance. Another advantage of misting fans is their power consumption compared to other cooling options.
The rising temperature during the summer can make everyone uncomfortable most especially during outdoor activities. Most people are looking for ways to keep themselves cool.
• Outdoor events
A mister is commonly used in a specific area during festivals and special events. They can be used to provide comfort for people who are waiting in line. Often, it is also used in a preferred sitting area such as restaurants and shows. Misting fans can be the only available option for people who wants comfort during the summer since air conditioners cannot be installed outdoors.
• Green House
Although mist fans are used for outdoor events, indoor versions can also be used in green houses. They require less maintenance than humidifiers and are cheaper options for large venues most especially during 100 degree weather. They are also more environmentally friendly with regards to energy conservation and waste deposit options.
The problem of rising temperatures can also be applicable for business establishments that have an open air environment like coffee shops and plazas where most customers like to spend more outdoor. Part of customer service is to ensure that they are comfortable within the premises of the business. Unsatisfied customers are not likely to return or spend enough time in your business which can reduce your chance of generating more sales.
Business establishments can opt for an expensive air conditioning system which needs regular maintenance or choose a more affordable mister which can still keep customers cool during the warm weather. The machine comes in different shapes and sizes. Misting fans are also ideal for large establishments since it can benefit more people at a time.
Misting fans is able to lower the temperature to 25 degrees. Large pumps can already supply enough water for hundred misting fans. The fans can also function well during the winter even without water to circulate warm air. These fans can help operators reduce heat fatigue on machineries. It is also more convenient for employees to work on a non heat stressed environment and can make them more productive.
Guideline in using a mister
The initial set up of misting systems require a placement of high pressure pump near a water source around the perimeter of the specific area to be cooled. Therefore, while the mist evaporates, the temperature around the area drops. Remember to place the misting system at a height of 8 to 10 feet to facilitate better evaporation. Once the system is properly installed, the results can be very effective. Misting fans can also be used to suppress dust in commercial and domestic places. Misting fans can also be used along other cooling systems. The ideal time to use misting fans is when the temperature rises to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Some misting systems work best if the humidity is below 40%.
An installed misting system should not cause any wetting around the area. The place should also have adequate ventilation to ensure that evaporation will occur. Remember that the fans required to cool an entire area dictates the pump to be used. A 1 GPM pump can operate up to 8 fans at a time. However, the size of the misting pump can also be determined by the nozzle being used and the size of it.
