Should I Use an Evaporative Cooler?

 

The term “swamp” is not a particularly pleasing one in most instances. Generally, it will elicit thoughts of hot, muggy areas full of insects like mosquitoes. In at least one case, though, “swamp” evokes a sense of comfort. That happens when discussing a swamp cooler, known more technically as an evaporative cooler.

If you are looking for an effective and efficient way in which to keep your home comfortable, a swamp cooler in Tucson, AZ may be your best bet. Read on to learn more about how these systems work, and precisely what benefits they have to offer. If you decide that a swamp cooler is a good fit for your home, give us a call to schedule service.

How Does It Work?

The operation of a swamp cooler is incredibly simple. Basically, it just draws air over water-soaked pads. The water evaporates into the air, cooling it while also humidifying it, and is then pushed into your living space. When using an evaporative cooler, windows are actually left open a bit. Rather than cool the same air over and over again, as a central AC does, an evaporative cooler instead replaces the warm air in a home with the cooled and humidified air. The hot air is just forced out through the windows.

Evaporative coolers offer many benefits. In our area, a main selling point is the humidification process. The air outside has very little humidity in it, and using a central AC will remove humidity from the air in your house. With an evaporative cooler, low humidity is not nearly as much of an issue. Plus, the system will keep refreshing the air in your home as it runs, keeping air quality high.

Additionally, an evaporative cooler will cost roughly half as much to install as a central air conditioner. Think that’s a good deal? Then consider the fact that they use about a quarter of the energy that a central AC does. Let us know if you have any questions regarding the installation and/or use of an evaporative cooler in your home.
