The goal of any warehouse cooling solution is to create a more comfortable, safe and healthy working environment.
Ideally the cooling system will also remove hot air and contaminants such as smoke dust and fumes, and contribute to better air ventilation, circulation and distribution.
Here are three ways to cool warehouses in Australia to suit a range of budgets.
1. Misting fans
Misting fans provide an inexpensive method to spot cool an area and cool down workers and equipment. They combine fast-moving air with a fine mist of water to create cooling breezes. Since the water quickly evaporates, there is no risk of excess humidity or damp.
Commercial misting fans start at only a few hundred dollars and can be either portable (pedestal) or fixed (wall-mounted).
2. Evaporative coolers
These cooling units are generally relatively inexpensive to buy, run and maintain, providing an efficient means of cooling a warehouse. They work by drawing hot air over wet pads before distributing the cooled air around the room using a fan.
Like misting fans, they can be either portable or fixed, making them a flexible option for many situations. Evaporative coolers are best suited to drier and more temperate zones within Australia.

3. Portable air conditioners
Portable air conditioners work largely the same way as fixed air conditioning units. They simultaneously cool and dehumidify air using refrigerant gases and a compressor. The cooled air is then distributed around the room via a fan. They can also improve air quality by removing contaminants from the air.
Portable air conditioners can suit a wide range of work situations. For example, they can be used for cooling zones or rooms, spot cooling or for cooling down your workers.
Arriving at the best cooling solution
The best solution for your warehouse depends on what you want to achieve, the size of your space and your budget.
