SOS (Save Our Summer) With a Patio Misting System

Springtime arrives. Gray skies and brown fields are transformed as snow gives way to blue skies, lush green foliage and warmer temperatures. Outdoor activities abound. As temperatures continue to rise, warm days and cool evenings become hot days and warm nights. Children splash in pools and eat snow cones under an increasingly brilliant sun. Friends and family gather around the outdoor grill and relax on the patio—until it gets too hot, and the party moves inside.

There is, however, a solution for those of us who relish the idea of an “endless summer,” enjoying outside activities even when the thermometer registers record temperatures! With a patio misting system, you can relax on your patio all summer long—in comfort, day or night.

How a Patio Misting System Works

You may be glad to know that misting systems do not make people cooler by getting them wet! Instead, outdoor misting systems use a phenomenon called “flash evaporation” to cool the air. The system forces water through special nozzles to create a fog composed of very tiny water droplets (averaging 5 millionths of a meter or less in diameter). The droplets quickly absorb heat energy present in the environment, evaporating—changing from a liquid water to a gas—as they do. The heat energy used to change the water to a gas is eliminated from the environment, leaving the air cooler than it was. As the air cools, it moves away from the misting area, cooling larger and larger areas as it circulates.

Benefits of a Patio Misting System
* Depending upon evaporation efficiency, this type of system can cool the ambient air by as much as 30 or 35 degrees Fahrenheit.
* The air cooling process cleans and humidifies the air.
* The fog, or mist, that is produced keeps flying insects away.
* Patio activities are more fun at comfortable summertime temperatures!

How to Improve Evaporation Efficiency
* High pressure pumps produce smaller water droplets than low pressure or medium pressure pumps, and smaller droplets facilitate faster evaporation.
* The size of the mist nozzle hole also contributes to the size of the water droplets that get released, so nozzle holes that are small produce smaller droplets.
