This upscale, hip gastropub was touted by Los Angeles Magazine for “….the megasize patio with the cityscape view is the place to be……”. Understandably, they wanted a solution that would cool down diners but not distract form the unique look and feel of their beautiful patio.

The Dangers of Overheating

Since summer is fast approaching for parts of the country, Advanced Misting Systems is discussing overheating because we consider it a life-threatening situation. Join us as we explore its symptoms and effects.

Most of the country is going to start seeing a warming trend, especially in the Southwest and South in the coming months. These states generally see temperatures in the high 90s and well into the 100s. Some areas compound these hot temperatures with high humidity too. The human body’s normal functioning temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. If you are exposed to these weather conditions, your body struggles with the suppressed oxygen levels of high humidity and the attempts to cool down from the increased temperature exposure.

Most of the days in Southern California are still averaging around 85 degrees, and in places like Phoenix, the weather forecast predicts temperatures around 90 degrees through the end of October. These temperatures may be comfortable for most of us, but for the athlete they can cause heat stress in combination with higher heart rate and rising body temperature. On the opposite side of the country, some sports teams are already playing in the snow and face the risk of hypothermia.

We talk a lot about the merits of an evaporative cooler over a standard air conditioner in terms of cost of installation, maintenance and operation, but it seems that not very many people understand how an evaporative cooler works. Also known as swamp coolers, evaporative coolers provide effective cooling by capitalizing on the natural process of water evaporation combined with a simple air-moving system. Keeping the interior of our desert buildings cool is a process that modern technology has made simple. But in the early 20th century, inventions such as air conditioning did not yet exist. People often stayed cool by sleeping outside on screened in porches during the summer. They would hang soaking-wet bed sheets and blankets on the screens and use fans to pull the night air through the moist cloth to provide a cool breeze to lower the room’s temperature.
