    Here is a misting system, a more polished example of the same idea.

    It does lower energy bills, until the hard water coats the condenser coil with minerals.
    Only if you feed it with hard water...

    Wow, i should have patented my idea!!! But ive used sprinklers many times to get out of a pinch! Back in 2007 we had extreme temps and i carried sprinklers on my truck to keep people cool if they wanted to pay for the water!

    I went on a roof a couple of months ago, and found three twenty ton carrier roof top units with a piped in sprinkler system spraying water on all three condenser coils. It was piped in PVC and had popup sprinkler heads. The building owner said it had been like that for about five or six years. The gravel roof looked like a swamp, and I was afraid I was going to get snake bit. The owner said he was going to change out the units next year. I would have loved to see his water bill.

    It might... 65-70°F water over the coils is going to be much better than 95°F air... until the water destroys the coil...
