Do water misters use a lot of water?
Because Koolfog misting systems use water for humidification, cooling and other forms of environmental control, we are often asked “how much water is actually used.” The simple answer is this: approximately one gallon of water per hour per nozzle using a standard misting nozzle.
Do misters lower air temperature?
Patio misters, also known as patio misting systems, are highly effective ways to keep your patio in your backyard refreshing and cool particularly during the hot summer months. Patio misting systems use the evaporation principle for cooling the assigned area and usually reduce the temperature by as much as 30 degrees.
Do misters work in high humidity?
Misting fans will work in humid conditions; they just may not operate at such a high rate compared to dryer environments. For example, in areas such as Louisiana, where humidity levels can reach a staggering 60% on a 100°F day, a high-quality misting fan can still cool the air by up to 15°C.
Do misters keep mosquitoes away?
These systems are even amazing at keeping their areas free of all manner of annoyances, from bugs to dust. The water that is made by the mister will stick to an insect, rendering it immobile. Bugs such as bees, hornets, mosquitoes, and flies will be unable to get into any area that is protected by a mist system.
Can mist fans be used indoors?
Misting fans are a great option for those who need portable cooling power. So long as you have an electrical outlet nearby, you can enjoy cooler air provided by misting fans. These fans can be used both indoors and outdoors.
Where do you put a misting system?
The mist lines need to be placed at a precise height to be effective. Where possible, installation at or above 8′ is ideal, as the area will be cool without making patio furniture or people wet. However, systems installed too high create a pleasing, misty effect, but are ineffective in cooling the space.
