Outdoor Cooling

Outdoor cooling can turn your space into a comfortable and profitable retreat

One common attribute of a well-loved open space is outdoor cooling. These outdoor spaces shall be designed for use under varying weather conditions, which is particularly important in the light of the global problem of climate change. In addition to shading, a good outdoor cooling and ventilation must be considered as well, especially during the long hot and humid summer seasons.

EMergyKool’s outdoor cooling systems, including evaporative coolers and misting or fogging systems, are capable of mixing atomized water into the airflow, thus improving ventilation and creating a cooling effect all around.

Sustainable and environmentally friendly cooling and ventilation

The use of evaporative cooling and misting systems for outdoor cooling is an inexpensive and appealing way to lower the temperature by up to 10 to 12°C. Other benefits of using these systems include less installation and maintenance cost, highly energy efficient technology, reduction of dust, pollen and flying insects, and high area of coverage.

Despite these many benefits, designing outdoor cooling strategies is a complex and potentially stressful undertaking for agency leadership and staff, taking into consideration the uncontrolled factors, such as, wind and humidity, that govern the performance of these strategies.

A design for outdoor comfort is an important step to ensure that the recommended outdoor cooling strategies are suitable for each specific application, which will avoid numerous trials and errors during the implementation phase. EMergyKool has unsurpassed credentials for outdoor cooling, and have made substantial contributions to major international efforts to establish internationally-applied outdoor comfort guidelines and standards.
