The Complete Guide to Swamp/Evaporative Coolers

An evaporative cooler (also swamp cooler, desert cooler and wet air cooler) is a device that cools air through the evaporation of water. Evaporative cooling differs from typical air conditioning systems which use vapor-compression or absorption refrigeration cycles.

Because an evaporative cooler operates through the evaporation of water, it adds moisture into the air. Therefore it is not the best solution for cooling in humid environments, even though there are a number of benefits to Swamp Coolers:

Top 4 Benefits:

  1. Low installation and maintenance costs
  2. 75% less electricity usage
  3. Adds moisture to the air, for dry environments
  4. No ozone damaging refrigerants

The best thing about our coolers is that they are portable, come in a range of cooling capacities, and are the cheapest you will find anywhere. Visit our ISC Online’s Evaporative Coolers page for more information, or call us at 866-453-2700 and we will answer any questions you have.

Now Selling from Every Division of Karcher

When we decided to launch a line of pressure washers we wanted to ensure we had every product from Karcher at our disposal. While Karcher is not as well known of a brand here in the United States, in countries such as Germany, United Kingdom, France, Poland, or Mexico, Kärcher is now colloquially used as synonymous with a cleaning system using high-pressure water. This family owned global company has two sides of their company one marketing towards the commercial industry, and the other to the light industrial market.

The commercial products have a wide variety of systems, but distinguish themselves as being able to unleash a much higher PSI, and cleaning capacity. These units are generally more expensive, but are able to tackle any cleaning job under the sun.

While the light industrial pressure washers distinguish themselves as being more portable, and more affordable. These units are designed to tackle a wider variety of jobs, while still making cleaning easier.

Whether you’re looking for a small, medium, or large pressure washer I can guarantee we have the highest quality unit at the cheapest price waiting for you at ISC Online.

3 Important Things About Mobile Fans

We are fanatic about our fans here at ISC. After an exhaustive vendor selection process, we’ve decided the superior TPI fans will be able to meet all of your air movement needs. But there are 3 things to think about when choosing which mobile fan to use.

1) Mount: Some fans are meant to blow in one direction while others can swivel to change direction easily. A standard mount fan is cheaper, but you might be unsatisfied with the direction of air.

2) CFM: Different fans will create more or less air movement based on how powerful they are. CFM stands for cubic feet per minute, which in laymen’s terms means the higher the CFM the more air is circulated.

3) Belt Driven vs. Direct Drive: both belt driven and direct driven fans have their good and bad points

  • Belt Driven: The motor exists independently of the fan blades and a belt connects the motor to the fan’s moving parts. Belt driven fans offer greater flexibility in terms of RPM speed, but tend to require more maintenance
  • Direct Driven: The fan motor that controls the movement of the fan blades is connected either to a shaft or fan axle. This configuration is more energy efficient, and more reliable, but tends to be more expensive.

If you have more questions about our mobile fans feel free to contact us, we are really popular because of all the fans we have!
