If you are looking to have your own garden hideaway, these types of fountains are ideal because they are easy to maintain and also have a positive effect on the environment.

Beyond its visual charm, interior wall fountains can also serve to keep your house at a cool temperature. They cool your dwelling by applying the same principles used in air conditioners and swamp coolers. Since they consume less electricity, they also help you save money on your monthly energy bill.

A fan can be used to blow fresh, dry air across them so as to generate a cooling effect. To improve air flow, turn on your ceiling fan or use the air from some corner of the area. Regardless of the technique you use, be certain the air is flowing over the top of the water in a consistent manner. Cool, fresh air is one of the natural benefits of fountains and waterfalls. The sudden chill we feel is typical when we come near a large municipal fountain or a waterfall. Be sure to situate your fountain cooling system where it will not be exposed to additional heat. Direct sunlight, for example, diminishes the efficiency of your fountain to generate cool air.
