Abstract

Demand for electric power during peak periods in summer is a vital concern for many utilities in the fast-moving world. From the demand point of view on the grid and cost to the consumer, it is quite wise to install, energy efficient evaporative coolers rather than conventional air conditioners. Evaporative cooling has a great many advantages over other cooling processes. Due to the non-pollution creating environment, it is considered as one of the suitable ways to cool ones workplace or living place because of the fact that it uses fresh air and replaces the air time to time, quite frequently, an hour. Due to recirculation of air, smells and allergens are expelled. It bases on a natural process of air cooled by water, it won’t dry out the air, or irritate human skin, eyes, or other external parts of the human body. It allows the doors to be left open for one to sustain the heat of summer. Moreover, evaporative cooling is an inexpensive cooling option which enhances the lifestyle of people. However, evaporative cooling requires an abundant water and is efficient when the relative humidity is low. Padding media play a major role in determining cooling efficiency the comparative performance of Desert Coolers employing four different pads in terms of cooling efficiency, air velocity, and water consumption for a sustainable and economic application. In real practice, we use aspen, coconut coir, as cooling pads in desert coolers.
