Indoor wall fountains are a superb option to cool your home as well as to provide an eye-catching addition to your living area. They cool your residence by utilizing the same methods used in air conditioners and swamp coolers. Since they consume less electricity, they also help you save money on your monthly power bill.

Their cooling effect can be activated by fanning fresh, dry air across them. To improve air flow, turn on your ceiling fan or use the air from some corner of the room. Regardless of the technique you use, ensure the air is flowing over the top of the water in a consistent manner. It is the nature of fountains and waterfalls to produce cool, fresh air. Merely being in the vicinity of a large public fountain or waterfall will send a sudden chill through whoever is nearby. Placing your fountain cooling system in a spot where it will receive additional heat is not practical. If you are looking for an efficient cooling system, it should be placed away from direct sunlight.Origins Garden Fountains 75800617194.jpg

The Origins Of Garden Fountains

The incredible construction of a fountain allows it to provide clean water or shoot water high into air for dramatic effect and it can also serve as an excellent design feature to complete your home.

Originally, fountains only served a functional purpose. Water fountains were connected to a spring or aqueduct to provide drinkable water as well as bathing water for cities, townships and villages. Used until the 19th century, in order for fountains to flow or shoot up into the air, their source of water such as reservoirs or aqueducts, had to be higher than the water fountain in order to benefit from gravity. Designers thought of fountains as amazing additions to a living space, however, the fountains also served to provide clean water and celebrate the artist responsible for creating it. Bronze or stone masks of animals and heroes were frequently seen on Roman fountains. To illustrate the gardens of paradise, Muslim and Moorish garden planners of the Middle Ages added fountains to their designs. To show his prominence over nature, French King Louis XIV included fountains in the Garden of Versailles. Seventeen and 18 century Popes sought to extol their positions by including decorative baroque-style fountains at the point where restored Roman aqueducts arrived into the city.

Since indoor plumbing became the norm of the day for fresh, drinking water, by the end of the 19th century urban fountains were no longer needed for this purpose and they became purely ornamental. Fountains using mechanical pumps instead of gravity allowed fountains to provide recycled water into living spaces as well as create unique water effects.

Modern-day fountains serve mostly as decoration for public spaces, to honor individuals or events, and enhance entertainment and recreational events.
