Cabin and bunk air-conditioning

Surprisingly, Is Evaporative or Refrigerated Cooler?

Evaporative and refrigerated air conditioning systems both have their own set of advantages and disadvantages.Cabin and bunk air-conditioning

Below we explore the pros and cons and offer a solution that will make your summer for years to come.

Evaporative Cooling Benefits

  1. An evaporative cooling system only needs electricity for its fan and water pump. Therefore, the air-conditioning unit uses less power than most cooling systems.
  2. An evap unit uses a more natural process to keep your truck and cabin cool, all it requires is a full tank of water

Evaporative Cooling Limitations

  1. Evaporative units are not ideal for humid areas and can be influenced by rainy periods.

  2. Their coolers require more than most alternative air-conditioning
  3. They have basic air filtration systems and so many airborne contaminants are not captured
  4. Cabins can become musty due to high moisture levels in fabric
  5. A window needs to be left open to allow for the free flow of air in and out of the cabin
  6. Require water tank to be topped up after an overnight use, which can be a scarce commodity in some parts of Australia.

Refrigerated Cooling Benefits

  1. A refrigerated cooling system will keep you cool and comfortable in all weather conditions
  2. Refrigerated air-conditioners allows you to assign different temperatures to suit you.
  3. The cooling system removes humidity from the area
  4. Refrigerated system has a very effective filtration system

Refrigerated System Limitations:

  1. A robust system like a refrigerated cooler requires more energy to function. However, there are Lithium powered air-conditioning options that has all the benefit of both worlds.
  2. The refrigerated cooling’s outdoor unit like the ICEPACK can be noisy. DC Lithium powered refrigerated air-conditioning units overcome this
