A swamp cooler is a common name for evaporative coolers. Swamp coolers are often used in El Paso and the desert region due to the fairly dry climate the Southwest has year-round. These units work by pushing moist air through the ductwork and across your home to cool down the indoor temperature. They’re also cost-effective, simple to maintain, and easy to perform regular maintenance on. However, a swamp cooler will rely on the outside air to cool the inside of the home or building. This can cause some problems when humidity levels are higher than usual and even with common allergies. If your swamp cooler requires maintenance, then Omega Electrical is your team! We can help convert your swamp cooler to a high-quality refrigerated air system at any time. Simply give us a call to get your free estimate!
Common Swamp Cooler Pros and Cons
A swamp cooler was the El Paso standard for a long time. Not only did they once make a difference in our climate, but their cost-effectiveness and simple-to-maintain parts made them simple to choose. However, as our yearly temperatures rise, a swamp cooler doesn’t quite cut it when it comes to comfortable temperatures. If it goes out, your home could rise to almost equal temperatures outside and will take hours before it begins to cool down again.
