      We have evp cooling was put in new when we bought the house cost just ove $3k toput in its not that great at cooling when we have the really hot days.Is cheaper to run and cant say we used that much more water than the winter months and the water that comes out we connected to a hose and we water the garden with it.

      We are going to have gas ducting put in this winter that cost between $2 and a half K to $3K but most companys are doing interest free at the mo:D.

      Hi there,
      We have a few different systems in our houses. The evaporative systems are much cheaper to run but do not offer the zone control (bedroom, lounge, kitchen etc) facility of the reverse cycle systems. We have just had two Inverter reverse cycle systems installed....both cooling in Summer and heating in Winter. They are supposed to be cheaper to run than the standard reverse cycles....but....the human factor comes into play! If you set them at 24 degrees they are quite energy efficient but there's a 10% increase in electricity for every 1 degree change. Running costs at 18 degrees on full fan can be $1 a hour! My OH gets so fed up with our systems running when the houses are empty! He would put a coin slot on them if he could!
      They cool the whole house down in a few minutes but require the doors and windows to be closed as opposed to the evaporative cooling that need doors or windows open.
      hope that this helps!
