Evaporative coolers, which are known as swamp coolers, are very prominent in this region due to the Southwest’s mostly dry climate. These evaporative coolers are simple and easy to maintain. Even though El Paso is dry more often than not, the city can still face humid days which renders evaporative coolers ineffective. These units push moist air through the ductwork into your home to cool the indoor temperature. When humidity levels are higher than usual, the evaporative cooler won’t work as effectively as it should. Since they rely on outside air to cool the inside of the home or building, people with allergies may suffer.
When it comes to air conditioning, El Paso home and business owners have two main options: evaporative coolers and refrigerated air units. The best way to face El Paso’s hot, desert temperatures is with a good air conditioner. No matter what you have, Omega Electrical & Mechanical can help!
The Pros and Cons of a Swamp Cooler
Many homeowners choose to stick to a swamp cooler for many reasons, chief among them being their cost effectiveness. It’s much more affordable to buy a brand new evaporative cooler as opposed to a refrigerated air conditioner. Running these coolers on a regular basis is also more cost-effective. Although these units use water, they require a lot less electricity. Homeowners also choose to stick to these types of air conditioner units because they are fairly easy to maintain. Since evaporative coolers are very simple machines, maintenance and replacements are easy and affordable.
However, these units do come with a few downsides. Simple malfunctions can leave you without any air conditioning. If your HVAC technician doesn’t arrive right away, you may end up in a house or commercial building with temperatures rising up to 90 degrees. If your swamp cooler requires maintenance, Omega Electrical & Mechanical can help!
