It's a bright, beautiful summer day -- the perfect time to mow the lawn, work on your garden, or just lay out and enjoy the rays. Problem is, the heat is so unbearable that you can only enjoy these activities for a short period of time. It is uncomfortable to begin with, and prolonged exposure can be painful -- even harmful. It's a shame to see those summer months go to waste while you stay in your comfortable, air conditioned house.
One solution would be to install a mist system in your backyard. That keeps temperatures cool and allows you to enjoy your favorite outdoor activities, no matter what the temperature. However, those systems can run expensive. If your use of such a system would be limited, perhaps a spot cooling system is the answer.
Instead of covering a broad area (backyard, patio, garden, etc.), a spot cooling system isolates the cooled area. This means that you can be cooled while enjoying the sun, without wasting extra energy by cooling your entire patio.
Small offices can also benefit greatly from spot cooling systems. Air conditioning systems are expensive and not environmentally friendly. They also severely dry out the air, which is uncomfortable for many employees. Not only are spot cooling systems more comfortable, but they are much more cost effective, saving businesses hundreds on energy costs during the summer months. It will keep productivity up, while other offices fall behind because of heat-induced fatigue. In that sense, a spot cooling may eventually pay for it self in results.
