The cooling works by letting the hot and outside air pass via the water-soaked cooling pads. It leads the water to disperse into the humid air resulting in the reduction of the temperature. The cooling system is best for dry and hot regions. It can work well by letting the air circulation via the cooler vents and airing the warm air from windows.
