Outdoor Misting Systems – the good and the bad
As the weather warms up,your desire to get cool will rise again.
Attendance at ballgames and pool parties increase people will try to find ways to cool off. One popular trend, adopted by many open-air shopping malls, restaurants and bars with a patio, is misting systems. But before you go out and invest in one, let’s cover some of the pros and cons.
How Misters Cool You Down
When water molecules evaporate into the air, the water changes from a liquid to a gas state. A certain amount of energy or heat is needed to assist this process of changing water from a liquid to a gas, which is automatically drawn from the surrounding air – thus, lowering the ambient temperature around the misted area.
In other words, it’s a lot like what happens when your body sweats. You sweat, the sweat evaporates, and your body temperature lowers. Got it?
Misting systems are a very effective way to cool off. Whether you’re enjoying a cold beverage or hanging out on the patio, chances are you’ve already experienced how they really do cool you off during a hot, summer day.
While misting systems give you the opportunity to stay cool, they can also be used for other benefits. For example, watering plants. Not only can you stay cool, but also so can your azaleas.
They may seem like they use a lot of water, but misting systems are actually quite efficient. And with new innovations and developments every year, this will continue to evolve.
Regular maintenance needed
Due to temperature changes, leaks, low water pressure, and other potential problems, regular upkeep and maintenance are required. Regular maintenance is also recommended to prevent any adverse effects to your home or yard.
This shouldn’t be a surprise. Because of regular maintenance and the initial cost, outdoor misting systems can get pricey. While outdoor misting systems are going to use less water and energy than your air-conditioning, it’s still more water than you’re currently using.
Misting systems also come in a variety of set-ups and types. Make sure to do some research to make sure you’re getting the right one for your home.
