Cooling Mechanism
Creates a breeze by circulating the room air.
VS
Uses water evaporation to cool incoming hot air and fan to expel the cooled air.
VS
Uses refrigerant and compressor to cool.
Temperature Reduction
Low - Air circulates with minimal temperature reduction.
VS
Moderate - Temperature of dry air can drop significantly when liquid water transforms to water vapor (evaporation).
VS
High - A chemical refrigerant and an energy-consuming compressor are used.
Air Ventilation while Cooling
Poor- Re-circulates stale air as a breeze. A window can be opened for fresh air, but warmer outside air will be drawn into the room.
VS
Excellent - Cross-ventilation together with evaporative cooling creates a cooling breeze and helps renew stale air.
VS
Poor - requires windows and doors to be closed for effective cooling. Stale air is re-circulated.

VS
Humidifies - adds moisture to air. Ideal for dry environments with low humidty levels.
VS
Dehumidifies - removes moisture from air. Ideal for environments with high humidity levels.
