Why Evaporative Air Conditioning in Idaho?

If you have large industrial or commercial buildings or warehouse space evaporative cooling might be the best and most economical fit for your business.  In a lot of applications Boise evaporative cooling is the economical and best way to go, you get 100% fresh air, cheap cooling and low maintenance.  If you have large spaces that doors are opening and closing a lot then it will be very costly to have mechanical air conditioning over the Evaporative style.   With Nampa Evaporative cooling you actually want the air to be vented back to the outside, this helps with the cooling and not having too much humidity buildup.  With evaporative cooling you also get an environment that doesnt dry out your skin and sinuses where as air conditioners remove the humidity from the air.  One of the other great pluses to this style of cooling is there is no refrigerant to ever replace, it uses water as the cooling agent.
