With summer at its height, keeping your business cool and comfortable is a top priority.

One option to consider is evaporative cooling – a simple process that uses moisture to absorb heat and provide cool air to an interior space.

Evaporative cooling is perfectly suited for Utah’s climate and the technology has improved considerably during the past decade.

Modern equipment is quieter and requires less maintenance to provide improved occupant comfort.

Evaporative cooling also uses considerably less energy than traditional air conditioning and that means lower operating costs.

In addition, Rocky Mountain Power’s wattsmart Business program offers cash incentives for evaporative cooling upgrades.

So, between the energy savings and the incentives, the payback on the investment pencils out sooner.

For details on evaporative cooling, visit Rocky Mountain Power at wattsmart.com.
