How Are Mist Fans Different Than Regular Misting Systems?
Outside of the obvious, not much is different. We use the same technology in our mist fans as we do in traditional mist curtain installations. Water is pressurized to a high rate through the pump and pressed out of the nozzles surrounding the fan. When the water meets the hot air, it flash-evaporates, which provides a fine mist. Mist fans will decrease the air temperature by up to 30°, just like a mist curtain will. Additional benefits of mist fans are the ability to customize the fan to match your home’s exterior (wraps can be designed to cover the fans with a selection of designs or your family name). In addition, you can use the fan in “fan only,” “mist only” or “mist/fan” mode.
When customers contact us about misting systems, they don’t necessarily call with a mist fan in mind. Part of our job as educators is to survey the space the homeowner wishes to have cooled and make a recommendation for the best system from that evaluation.
