Hot weather management

When properly installed and maintained, a six-inch evaporative cooling pad system can do an excellent job of cooling incoming air during hot weather. As hot outside air is drawn through the pads, the heat (energy) in the incoming air is used to evaporate water from the pads, thereby reducing the temperature of the incoming air. Six-inch pad systems produce more cooling than traditional two-inch fogging pad systems simply because they are more efficient at evaporating water into the air.
