Summer is a great time for shorter clothing attire and sandals, but sometimes the heat is still unbearable. Advanced Misting Systems wants to share some effective ways to quickly cool down in this two-part blog series.
Custom Mist Fan Installation
We were recently contacted by the folks over at The Eveleigh Restaurant in Los Angeles to consult with them about misting their very large patio.
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.
How a Misting Systems Company Assists OSHA for Employees
Some jobs are not located in glamorous conditions. They do not feature air conditioning or cooling fans such as within an office building. We are talking about those who work primarily outdoors. It is laborious to work when the temperature is extremely warm, especially during the summertime. Arduous industrial jobs such as this include pest control exterminators, construction workers, mail couriers, farmers and other types of blue-collar individuals.
Did You Know of These Alternative Cooling Options?
As the hottest part of the year arrives, many businesses are changing their operations to ensure their workers’ safety and well-being. Consider how misting systems can help to prevent overheating as well as other serious dangers that hot weather can create. Some industries carry products that need to be stored within certain temperature ranges to prevent spoilage, such as the food and beverage industry. Either way, cooling through the use of continuous air conditioning comes with a hefty price tag.
New Heat Rehab Trailer Design
Wow, things have been busy around here. We have spent the last month redesigning, manufacturing, assembling, and shipping a large heat rehab trailer order for Fort Benning Army Base the home of the United States Army Maneuver Center of Excellence.
A Cloud of Mist on the Horizon
You’ve spent months preparing your body for this trek, and the halfway mark was a few steps ago. Fans are cheering for you to keep going. Upon nearing the finish line, you see the most beautiful, amazing sight – a cloud of refreshing, cooling mist. What a perfect way to finish the race!
Whether you are a participant or an event coordinator, did you know there are 20 tentative marathons from mid-April to early June in California alone? One website records up to 185 marathons nationwide during that same period ! As the weather warms up, these marathons can be dangerous to participants and onlookers. Renting commercial misting equipment for the finish line can provide adequate relief for everyone involved.

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.
Extreme Sports, Extreme Temperatures
Even with the seasons changing, temperature related stress is still a very real risk for fall athletic teams in the Southwest. 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.
How an Evaporative Cooler Works
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 bedsheets 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.
