Last month, we were contacted by an angry customer. The evaporative cooler she’d bought for her office wasn’t doing anything. Her office was 77°F when she switched it on and it was still 77°F two hours later. The only difference was the humidity. It had risen from 29 to 50 percent.
The problem wasn’t her cooler, however, it was her office. All the doors and windows were sealed, and evaporative coolers can’t operate without good home ventilation. Once she opened a window and let in some fresh air, the cooling mechanism finally started to operate temperature began to drop. Continue reading →
Our friend Teri at Mommy, Wife, & Life is talking about how hard it is to stay cooling during Ohio summers. Weather in Ohio swings between two extremes.

It’s an easy way to get her house nice and cold, just they way she likes it, and she even loves the added humidity cuts down on pollen and other allergens, so she’s clear headed and refreshed during even the worst of the summer heat.

We were very excited to see the Luma Comfort HC12W named as one of this season’s “Mommy Must-Haves” by the Fox 5 team in San Diego. The HC12W is a great tool for alleviating dry skin, chapped lips, and allergens. It can produce 2.5 gallons of mist every day, but SoCal savvy mom Nicole Hughes was most impressed by its sleek and unobtrusive design. Tall and elegant, the HC12W fits seamless into and room and helps protect children from the dust and pollen. It’s a great way to stay comfortable in doors and strong enough to humidify any room in your house.

Three of the biggest challenges greenhouse growers face is how to control heat, humidity, and air circulation. Each one affects growth in different ways, and a greenhouse misting fan may be the best way to control all three. Here’s why: Continue reading →
When it’s hot, most people only think about buying an evaporative cooler for their house or yard. They understand how important it is to be comfortable at home, but rarely consider how important it is to be comfortable at work.

One of the most common questions Luma customers have is about the noise level of our evaporative coolers and whether it will interfere with conversations, television, or normal home routine.

The principle of evaporative cooling was discovered by Ben Franklin in the 18th century. He found that the faster a liquid evaporated, the colder the surrounding area became. When he dipped a thermometer in ether and blew on it with a pair of bellows, it froze in the middle of summer. If you live in the right place, you could see similar results when you switch on your evaporative cooler. Continue reading →
Summer is approaching very fast, and this summer is expected to be one of the warmest on record. Most people in the United States use air conditioners to cool their homes, which means summer is also when their electricity bills spike. Air conditioners consume large amounts of electricity. A central AC system consumes 21 times as much electricity as your desktop computer or refrigerator. A window mounted AC unit consumes 5 ½ times as much. Depending on where you live, your air conditioning will cost you anywhere between $160 and $660 this year. What if there was a more cost effective way to cool your home? Continue reading →
