Evaporative Cooling

Evaporative cooling equipment uses evaporated water to reduce the temperature of air and provide cool air. It is very effective in warm, arid climates and uses only a fraction of the energy required for air conditioning equipment.

Our wattsmart Business program includes cash incentives and technical expertise for evaporative cooling and other equipment that increases energy efficiency and exceeds code requirements.
