You wait for summer all year long and dream of spending your summer days lounging on your backyard deck or patio, soaking up the rays. Then why does it seem like those hot summer days are forcing you back indoors?
Summer days can get wickedly hot, especially in the warmer areas of the country where temperatures often soar past 100 degrees in the heat of the summer season. More often than not, it is not only uncomfortable to be outside, but often downright dangerous.
So, what’s the solution? An outdoor misting system, of course!
Outdoor misting systems, sometimes referred to as outdoor cooling systems or outdoor cooling misting systems, use high pressure water to cool areas up to 35 degrees or more.
Outdoor misting systems pump cool water through professional-quality, misting nozzles which create a light mist which dramatically cools the area. The science behind outdoor misting systems lies with the use of high water pressure of at least 1,000 PSI. This creates a super-fine mist which fully evaporates in the air before it lands and soaks anything.
How misting systems work so effectively
Called “flash evaporation,” this process has been used successfully in many commercial and construction settings for years. With the movement towards outdoor living taking center stage over the last few years, many consumers are now looking for ways to extend their outdoor season and enjoy their outdoor spaces, no matter the temperature.
It is best to call a professional misting system dealer who can provide you products and services regarding misting systems. The outdoor misting systems often sold through home improvement centers generally do not have a high enough PSI and tend to work more as mini-sprinklers than as cooling misting systems.
After all, the point of misting systems is not to get wet. It’s all about the cooling power of evaporation.
Which patios a misting system can benefit
Patio misting systems are a great choice if you love to spend time outdoors and entertain and relax with friends and family. A simple flip of a switch allows you to instantly cool your outdoor space. Garden misting systems are an ideal way to bring moisture to your garden.
A qualified outdoor misting system installer can easily install your outdoor misting system, and can even install separate valves so that you can operate different systems at different times.
An area that will benefit from the use of an outdoor misting system is your children’s play area and swing set. You can rest easy knowing that your children are staying cool, comfortable and hydrated on even the hottest of days. And what better way to encourage outdoor play, even during the heat of the day?
Outdoor misting systems are also practical for play areas and swing sets because they do not create any wet, slippery surfaces.
Misting fans, sometimes referred to as cooling misting fans, use the misting technology and combine it with high velocity fans. Outdoor misting fans are ideal, as you can choose to use the mist and the fan together, the mist only or the fan only.
Smaller, portable misting systems are also ideal for smaller spaces, and can be easily moved, depending on which area of the yard you are relaxing.
