HGTV’s Desert Flippers

HGTV’s Desert Flippers

In a recent episode of HGTV’s Desert Flippers, “Go Bold or Go Home”, Koolfog plays a key role in the house’s transformation. The show follows couple Lindsey & Eric Bennett who buy and refurbish homes in the Palm Springs Desert area. “Go Bold or Go Home” features a mid-century modern home in a desirable neighborhood that needs some tweaks to live up to its full potential. As part of the reno the Bennett’s focus on the backyard of the home, as Eric notes that “people come to Palm Springs for indoor/outdoor lifestyle” so they work to increase the usable outdoor square footage and create an appealing outdoor space. However, as the couple knows, heat can be a definite problem for potential buyers if an outdoor space is not cooled properly. Koolfog to the rescue!

We don’t want to spoil the show but can say that Lindsey raved about the “huge outdoor dining area” that was made possible by the addition of the misters to “cool the outdoor living space.” Clearly, adding a misting system helped the couple reach their goal of a successful flip!

Johannes Patio Misters Tune Up

Johannes Restaurant in Palm Springs serves European Cuisine from Austrian born Chef/Owner Johannes Bacher. Their patio utilizes a misting system to ensure comfort at all times of the year. The system was tuned up at the beginning of summer ’17 and working perfectly! Our patio misting systems are great for restaurants because they don’t leave any wet residue behind, which means your tables and guests’ food will stay dry.

Our patio misting systems are designed to enhance your restaurant patio dining areas with a cooler atmosphere during the hotter months of the year, to extend your rushes, to increase your capacity and to enhance your ambiance. Misting can provide even the most distracted person relief and relaxation. Food is meant to be, as it always has, a place for all of us to come and be together.

Empowering your restaurant to maintain a consistent revenue stream throughout the year can be a challenge. The very nature of a restaurant circles around “rush” hours and “dead” times. Utilizing patio misting systems can lengthen or even maintain existing peak periods for optimal table turn-over rates while giving your guests the subtle statement that you have carefully considered every detail of comfort. Smoking areas become welcoming and the passing crowds are drawn to your call of comfort.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to make your restaurant a hot spot all year round. Contact us to get started with a patio misting system installation.

Valley View Under Patio Misting System

What a view! Made possible at all times of the year with a Koolfog patio misting system, sitting outdoors, relaxing and just taking it all in becomes possible! The home is the basis of family connections, memorable bar-b-ques and the best birthday parties. Extend the square footage of your house, the time you can spend outdoors and the memories you make with a thoughtfully engineered and meticulously manufactured Koolfog high-pressure misting system.

Koolfog high-pressure misting pumps and misting nozzles deliver temperatures up to 35 degrees cooler. Using pressures of 1000 PSI to produce atomized water particles, Koolfog leverages the energy in the air, in the form of heat, to process the water particles effectively removing the heat from the air. In short, we drop temperatures significantly.

It’s about the times we share together; when there is only family and friends, and nothing really matters except that you are all together. These are the beginnings of the best memories, and they all start in your backyard. Koolfog’s high-pressure misting systems keep temperatures moderate so the most treasured experiences can extend well into the hottest times of the year.

5 Exciting (Sort Of) Related Misting Discoveries

5 Exciting (Sort Of) Related Misting Discoveries

Accidental discoveries have led to incredible innovations. Things like microwaves, misting, mauve and even x-rays were all practical accidents waiting to happen.

To ready ourselves for the impending hot weather, we’ve decided to gather a list of accidental discoveries that are directly related, or kind of related, to misting.

5. Stainless steel

In an effort to decrease the expansion of a gun barrel after firing multiple times, a gentleman named Harry Brearly began working to make a steel alloy that would resist the erosion produced by multiple bullets exiting a gun barrel. After failing numerous times, one of his samples began to shine brighter than the rest. Literally. With this accidental discovery of stainless steel, we now have the material used for our misting atomization and distribution lines.

4. Play-doh

Alright, this may be a stretch, but stick with me (puns intended!). Originally intended to be a cleaning product during the era of coal based heat production in homes, the original play-doh (although it wasn’t called that yet) was used to rub the soot off of wallpaper. Soon thereafter, natural gas began to replace coal and people did not need their wall paper cleaning product anymore. The company who invented it, Kutol, was going bankrupt and there was no solution in sight. Until children saved the day. A teacher in early 1950’s  began using the material as modeling clay in her classrooms. And now we have play-doh.

Now we have play-doh for the children to play with, as we sit with our families on our back patios, enjoying the outdoors even during the hottest times of year. Misting systems allow us to be more family oriented, more outdoor friendly, more available for moments of connection. Like making animals using play-doh with our children or grandchildren.

3. Popsicles

11 year old Frank Epperson was a forgetful boy. Inventive, but forgetful. One chilly evening in San Francisco in 1905, he made himself a soda-like drink by mixing powder and water together with a spoon. He sat outside on the porch enjoying it but left it outside, unfinished. The next morning, he found the frozen water with the spoon stuck in the middle.  He took it out. He licked it. It was delicious. End of story.

‘Cause there’s nothing like a popsicle outside, underneath a misting system, to cool down after a hot day.

2. Ice Cream Cones

The rules are, “No eating ice cream cones inside.” Without cones, there would be no cream of ice. No dripping, sticky mess that requires hoses and giggles. And without a misting system in the desert heat, it’s likely you’ll forgo both and stay inside. Don’t risk missing out on moments like these.

1. Misting for Air Scrubbing

poles_mccarthypark

Misting systems did not necessarily emerge from an accident. But one of the uses did. Traditionally used for cooling and fog effects, environmental awareness of the adverse effects of particulate matter begged for a cleaning solution. Enter, mist. Due to the surface area of the atomized water particles and the natural cleansing properties of water, running your misting system essentially cleans the air around you.

Misting isn’t just a luxury item. It creates environments where moments that might not happen, can. It is for making memories. It is for air purifying.
