What an Evaporative Cooler Does
You experience the power of evaporative cooling whenever you stand near a lake on a hot day and feel a breeze blowing across the surface. The air off the lake feels cool because it has lost heat to the lower temperature of the water. A swamp cooler works in the same way.
Usually, the evaporative cooler is mounted on the top of the house, and fans draw in warm outside air. The air passes over a series of pads that are soaked with water, and kept damp through pumps. The outside air loses its heat to the water on the pads, and enters the house cooled down.
Should You Install an Evaporative Cooler in Your Home?
Even though evaporative coolers offer great energy savings, as well as increased humidity for homes that are too dry, they aren’t ideal for every house. Despite the name swamp cooler, these coolers do not function well in humid environments because the moisture in the incoming air slow down heat transfer. An evaporative cooler works best in dry climates.
The best way to find out if your house will benefit from an evaporative cooler is to first consult with an HVAC technician. They can help you find out if a swamp cooler is a good match for your home or not.

Just because swamp coolers use less energy than standard air conditioners doesn’t mean they’re immune to wear and tear or the need for occasional fixes. Regular maintenance is critical to keep the pumps clear of minerals and to prevent the development of mold and mildew in the pads.
The fan can malfunction, or the pumps break, and these problems will need a professional to handle. You can rely on us to make sure that your evaporative cooler receives regular inspections and tune-ups, and that all repairs are done fast and right. You can reach us any time of the day or night if you need assistance.
