Just as temperatures warm up, PNM has some cool rebates.
How Evaporative Coolers Work
A simple example is the cooling you feel when
stepping out of a swimming pool—the water
evaporates quickly from your body, taking heat with
it. Evaporative coolers do essentially the same thing
by drawing hot air through wet pads using a fan or
blower. As water evaporates from the pads, it takes
heat from the air with it, resulting in up to 25°F
cooler air being discharged from the unit.
An evaporative cooler consumes only one-fourth of
the electricity of a refrigerated air conditioning unit.
