Running Costs

Breezair is up to 90% cheaper to run than traditional ducted refrigerated air conditioning

Whether it’s for commercial or residential use, the evidence is clear, Breezair evaporative cooling systems are up to 90% cheaper to run than ducted reverse cycle systems*

The only power-consuming components of a direct evaporative cooler are the fan and a small water pump. Evaporative cooling delivers 100% fresh outside air and utilises water for cooling instead of synthetic chemical refrigerants (CFC’s, HFC’s and HCFC’s). There are no CFC pollutant emissions from evaporative cooling and water consumption is moderate.

Conventional refrigerated air conditioning impacts significantly on a building’s operating costs as it uses in excess of 25% of the building’s energy consumption.

Breezair is a great solution for homes but can also be installed in commercial or industrial applications such as warehouses, schools and offices – check out our case studies for more information.
