If you feel like the world is getting hotter every year, then you’re on to something because global temperatures are actually rising on a regular basis. Of the hottest summers in history, 17 of them took place within this century, says Popular Science. And with seemingly no end to pollution and greenhouse gas emissions in sight, things could only get worse in the coming years.
More often than not, our immediate solution to hot summers is spending all day indoors with our AC systems at full blast. No one will argue that the cool air from an air conditioner is a great way to beat the heat. However, what many of us don’t realize is that by trying to keep cool using AC units, we are making the planet hotter.
AC systems use HFCs or hydrofluorocarbons, which are greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. And while most of the world’s countries have come together to draft treaties that aim to limit their use, our world is still as hot as ever.
The truth is that it’s going to take a long time before any worldwide action we take will have any significant impact on global temperatures. We have to find alternative ways to keep cool. One option is a fog misting system. Let’s look at some reasons why you should get one.
It cools without HFCs
A fog misting system does not need HFCs. All it has to do is force water out of special nozzles at high pressure to produce a mist of tiny water droplets, and it will cool a given room or area. Even without HFCs, it can cool a room down to 25 degrees just like a traditional AC unit, and at a much faster rate than that.
Good for indoors and outdoors
Unlike AC units, fog misting systems are designed for both indoor and outdoor use. It can cool you off while spending time at your patio just as well as it can in your living room. It’s even great for use in areas inside your home where it’s not practical to use AC units, like the basement.
It keeps bugs away
Since a fog misting system sprays a very fine mist of water droplets in the air, flies, mosquitoes, and other insects are going to have a hard time passing through that. That mist is definitely a much better insect repellant than bug sprays that contain toxic chemicals. With a fog misting system turned on, bugs won’t be bothering you much anymore.
It cleans the air
When you turn a fog misting system on, the fine mist that it sprays helps remove pollen, dust, and impurities from the air. If allergies are stopping you or any of your loved ones from spending time in your backyard on a lovely summer day, then get a fog misting system to make those allergens go away.
It’s more affordable
The price of AC units alone seems to be getting more expensive by the day. Having them installed by professionals is also going to cost you. And with the high price of electricity today, you can expect constant air conditioner use to bring astronomical power bills every month.
A fog misting system, on the other hand, is cheaper than an AC unit. And since it doesn’t use up electricity the way an AC unit does, operating one doesn’t break the bank. It also requires minimal maintenance, so your overall costs are going to be lower.
You can use it anywhere
A fog misting system isn’t just for your home. If you own and operate a restaurant, you can use it there. Your office can also benefit from a fog misting system. It can keep grocery shops and sports arenas as well. And if you have a farm or a stable and you’re worried that your prized animals are suffering from the heat, a fog misting system can help cool them down.
These are just some of the benefits you can get from a fog misting system. Fog misting systems are available in portable versions or as a full setup. Get either or both, and you can cool off in the most environmentally-friendly way.
