Cool Zone Evaporative Cooling Systems

Evaporative cooling is a natural and efficient way to cool air using the simple process of water evaporation. Unlike traditional air conditioning systems that use refrigerants to cool the air, evaporative coolers use a fan to draw warm air through water-saturated pads, cooling the air through evaporation before circulating it into your living space.

If you’re looking to make the switch to evaporative cooling, look no further than Cool Zone’s best-in-class product line: the PROKOOL and WAYCOOL EVAPORATIVE COOLING UNITS. These units offer top-notch performance, low operating costs, and minimal maintenance.

PROKOOL and WAYCOOL Evaporative Cooling Units

When it comes to innovative cooling solutions that work across a range of environments, Cool Zone’s PROKOOL and WAYCOOL Evaporative Cooling Units lead the industry.

Leveraging 21st-century technology, these units break the mold by being effective in both high-humidity climates like Baton Rouge and the dry heat of Arizona.

PROKOOL Units: Large-Scale Cooling

PROKOOL units were developed with large spaces in mind. Whether it’s a sprawling residential area, a big retail space, or a vast warehouse, PROKOOL is engineered to dispense cold air effectively over large expanses. Its technology is adaptive to both high humidity and dry conditions, making it a versatile option regardless of your geographical location.

Key Features

  • Adaptive technology suitable for all climates
  • Designed to cool large areas efficiently
  • Energy-saving without compromising on performance

WAYCOOL Units: Compact Yet Powerful

In contrast, the WAYCOOL units were conceived for smaller, more compact spaces, but they pack a punch when it comes to cooling efficacy. Whether it’s a small apartment, a home office, or an intimate outdoor gathering, the WAYCOOL unit provides targeted cooling. Its advanced technology also makes it well-suited for varying climates, be it humid or arid.

Key Features

  • Ideal for compact spaces
  • Equally effective in high-humidity and dry environments
  • Efficient and powerful despite its smaller size

How to Choose between PROKOOL and WAYCOOL?

Selecting between PROKOOL and WAYCOOL comes down to the specific needs of your space:

If you’re looking to cool a large area with varying climate conditions, the PROKOOL unit is your go-to choice. Its powerful fan and large cooling pads are designed for extensive coverage.

If your space is smaller but you still want effective cooling, the WAYCOOL unit is an excellent option. It’s designed to operate optimally even in confined areas, providing quick and efficient cooling.

In either case, you’re making a smart choice for both energy savings and effective cooling, adaptable to a wide range of climates.

Advantages of Evaporative Cooling Systems

Lower Operating Costs

Evaporative coolers consume significantly less electricity compared to traditional air conditioning systems. You can expect to save on your energy bills, providing a quick return on your investment.

Better Air Quality

Unlike traditional AC units that recycle the same air, evaporative coolers bring in fresh air from the outside. This continuous air circulation helps to remove stale air and odors, improving indoor air quality.


Evaporative coolers don’t rely on refrigerants, which contain harmful chemicals like CFCs or HFCs that contribute to climate change. They use water, a natural resource, making them a more environmentally responsible choice for cooling.

Easy Maintenance

The simplistic design of evaporative coolers—with fewer mechanical parts—makes them easier and cheaper to maintain. Basic upkeep involves cleaning or replacing the cooling pads and occasionally checking the water level in the reservoir.

Versatility and Portability

Many evaporative cooler models are designed for easy mobility, allowing you to move the unit from room to room as needed. This portability offers a flexible cooling solution, especially useful in homes or businesses without centralized cooling systems.

How Does Evaporative Cooling Work?

If you’re pondering the switch to evaporative cooling, understanding how it works can empower you to make an informed choice. Unlike traditional air conditioning, which relies on refrigerants to cool air, evaporative cooling uses a more natural and energy-efficient process.

The Basics

  1. Air Intake: A fan draws warm air into the evaporative cooler.
  2. Water Evaporation: This warm air passes through water-saturated cooling pads.
  3. Cool Air: The air naturally cools down as it evaporates the water in the pads.
  4. Air Circulation: Finally, the cooler disperses the newly chilled air into the room or area.

Key Factors for Effectiveness

  1. Climate: While it’s versatile, evaporative cooling is most effective in dry climates, although modern units like PROKOOL and WAYCOOL work well in high-humidity areas too.
  2. Airflow: Good ventilation is crucial; stale air should be able to escape as fresh, cool air circulates in.

FAQs about Evaporative Cooling Systems

How do I choose the right size of an evaporative cooler?

The size of an evaporative cooler you’ll need depends on the cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air that the unit can move. To calculate the right size:

  • Measure the volume of the space you want to cool (Length x Width x Height).
  • Divide the volume by two. The result is the CFM rating you should look for in an evaporative cooler.

For example, if your room is 1500 cubic feet, a cooler with a 750 CFM rating would be appropriate.

Is evaporative cooling as good as air conditioning?

Evaporative cooling and air conditioning serve the same purpose—cooling—but have different efficiencies based on factors like climate and energy consumption. Evaporative coolers work best in dry climates and consume less energy, whereas air conditioners are effective in various climates but consume more energy. Consider your local weather conditions and energy costs when making a decision.

What are the two types of evaporative cooling?

The two primary types of evaporative cooling are direct evaporative cooling and indirect evaporative cooling:

  • Direct Evaporative Cooling: Warm air is directly passed through wet cooling pads, causing water to evaporate and the air to cool down.
  • Indirect Evaporative Cooling: A heat exchanger is used to cool the incoming air without adding moisture to it, making it more suitable for humid conditions.


What is the difference between evaporative cooling and cooling towers?

Both are cooling methods, but they serve different purposes. Evaporative cooling is used for space cooling—residential or commercial. Cooling towers are used primarily in industrial settings to remove heat from machinery or an entire facility. While both use evaporation to cool, a cooling tower is not designed to provide comfortable indoor climates.

What is the best use of an evaporative cooling system?

The best use for an evaporative cooling system is in dry, arid climates where the air is hot but humidity levels are low. However, modern units like PROKOOL and WAYCOOL are designed to work effectively in varying conditions, making them versatile for both residential and commercial applications.
