Although refrigerators and air conditioners are fictitious to turn warm air into cold, the science behind each method is quite different.
What is a marsh fridge?
That's just another name for the evaporative cooler. Water is used for wetting the absorbent pads around the sides of the refrigerator. The fan or "squirrel cage" pulls out the outside air through the pads and the air cools down as the water in the pads evaporates. The main advantage of this type of cooler is that it is only necessary to supply a water pump and a fan so that the air is pulled out through the pads.
They usually use between three and 10 liters of water per day. This is equivalent to several wash-outs or, in the end, a short shower.
Unless the relative humidity is lower than 30% or less, wetlands coolers are not very effective. They work well in the southwest, west of Texas and parts of Idaho, Washington, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. In these areas you should achieve a 20 degree difference between the outside and the inside.
Likewise, if the mud cooler remains effective, it must exhaust as much air as it enters. This means that the window is open. If you do not, humidity will increase the temperature of the air from the refrigerator.
On the other hand, the air conditioner is popular because it will reliably dry and cool the air, no matter where you live. This is how the air conditioning works:
The compressor compresses cold freon gas, causing it to become a hot high pressure gas gas. This hot gas passes through a set of coils so that it can disperse its heat, and condense into the liquid.
The Freon liquid passes through the expansion valve and evaporates during the process to become a cold, low pressure gas of low pressure. This cold gas passes through a set of coils that allow the gas to absorb heat and cool the air inside.
Blended with freon is a small amount of light oil that lubricates the compressor.
Wet refrigerator vs. air conditioning: what is cheaper to do?
In our friendly competition, the wetland cooler wins. For units of similar size, even the air conditioner labeled Energy Star uses 4-5 times the power required to operate the marsh heaters.
The difference is in the amount of energy needed to drive the compressor of the air conditioner compared to the electric motors used in the marsh cooler.
Which is better for the outside environment?
Unless you believe that soon it is forbidden that the R-22 passes the refrigerant to the atmosphere from your air conditioner, the good thing is a wet fridge. The wetland refrigerator maintains a green profile mimicking the way of cooling nature.
The way the air conditioner or frost water cooler influences the interior of your home is determined by the way the air circulates. Although air conditioning circulates the same air, it helps control allergens such as dust and pollen.
Since an open window is needed when a mud cooler is running, you will leave what the air conditioner keeps away.
Swam cooler vs air conditioning: Who wins?
I think that wetlands coolers are a good choice because they are relatively cheaper and much cheaper to operate from air conditioners as long as you live in Phoenix, Arizona. But if you call Little Rock, Arkansas, your home, nobody will get you out of the air conditioner.
