Safe Building 101: Creating a Climate-Controlled Space In Your Home

As I started to increase my art collection, I wanted to make sure that my investment was protected. I wasn't sure exactly how to store it all when it wasn't on display, but I knew I needed to do something. I decided to talk with a local construction contractor about how to secure my art, and he suggested a climate-controlled secure room in my home. They built a vault-like space in the house that is perfect for long-term storage. I created this site to showcase what was done in the hopes that others may seek the same solution. I hope the information here helps you to secure your financial investment as well.

Do You Want Outdoor Air Conditioning? Try Mist Cooling Systems

Does the sweltering summer heat and humidity cause you to stay indoors when the temperature rises? According to the 2009 Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS), approximately 87 percent of U.S. homes are now equipped with air conditioning. However, many households are not yet aware of a type of residential outdoor air conditioning. Mist cooling systems can provide you relief from searing temperatures by releasing fine mists of water into the air. Learn more about mist cooling systems and how they could benefit your outdoor living space.

How Mist Cooling Systems Work

Mist cooling systems make the air more tolerable through a process called evaporative cooling. The mist cooling device is designed to spray a fine layer of water into the air. The water is instantly evaporated into the atmosphere. Turning water into a gas requires heat, so when the water evaporates it absorbs heat and cools the hot air.

These mist cooling systems maintain a constant cool mist in the air without actually getting you wet. Mist cooling systems are commonly seen in amusement parks, zoos and on the sidelines of sports fields to keep people or animals cool. However, they can also be installed on porches, patios and spas to keep your outdoor spaces comfortable.

Hot Weather-Related Health Risks

Without some type of cooling system to keep your body at a normal temperature, you run the risk of developing a number of health problems. When the temperature is hot, your body heat raises making you sweat. This dramatically increases your risk for overheating, dehydration (water loss) and heat stroke.

Mist cooling systems can help prevent these hot weather-related health issues by regulating the surrounding atmosphere to a comfortable temperature. These systems are also excellent for people with outdoor allergies. Some mist cooling systems are designed to freshen the air by filtering out pollen and dust.

Limitations of Mist Cooling Systems

Like with any type of outdoor cooling system, mist outdoor systems have their limitations. The overall effectiveness of the misting device will primarily depend on the outdoor temperature, humidity level and air exchange rate. High temperatures and low humidity levels often allow mist cooling systems to work to their maximum potential.

Mist cooling systems also work better when there are slight breezes. When new hot air enters the area, it is quickly cooled giving anyone nearby a refreshing mist against their skin. Best of all, a mist cooling system can be placed anywhere you'd like, whether around the pool or a backyard gazebo.

Outdoor Mist Cooling System Varieties

There are currently numerous outdoor mist cooling system varieties to choose from, depending on your preferences and budget. For a more permanent misting system, consider having the unit hardwired into your home's porch, patio or greenhouse. The system may also come in the form of a high-powered industrial fan mister.

Some mist cooling systems are battery-operated and can fit in your hand. Simply carry the device around and use it as needed for a cool mist. Most outdoor electric cooling systems are wall-mounted or transportable. However, all systems are designed for the same purpose – relief from the heat.

Do you have a nice outdoor living space but find it hard to enjoy due to the intense summer heat? Mist cooling systems are a type of outdoor air conditioning unit that uses a cool mist to keep you comfortable and refreshed. There are numerous types of outdoor mist cooling systems available on the market, so it's important to talk to a professional about your options. For more information about outdoor mist cooling systems or other air conditioning services, contact your local air conditioning service and repair specialist.
