Schedule your swamp cooler shutdown.

It’s been a long, hot summer here in New Mexico. Your home’s swamp cooler has been running nearly constantly to keep your home cool.

Let us shutdown your swamp cooler.

  • Our technicians are swamp cooler service experts.
  • We handle all your seasonal maintenance needs.
  • We also repair, service, and install systems.

Here’s what our shutdown includes.

As a part of our swamp cooler shutdown process, the HVAC technicians at Wagner will:

– Dry out and disconnect the water line.
– Dry out the water from the lines and swamp cooler.
– Clean the system and seal and air or water leaks.
– Cover the system with a breathable, yet protective, cover.
– Seal the swamp cooler’s vent that leads into the house.

As we mentioned above, any water left in your swamp cooler can destroy the system over the course of a winter and cause other problems.

Cleaning out a swamp cooler can be extremely difficult for someone without training or equipment—a problem that’s even more amplified if you’re trying to shutdown a roof unit.

Why shut down your swamp cooler?

Here are the benefits of a seasonal shutdown.

If your swamp cooler has moisture in it ahead of winter, you need to schedule a swamp cooler shutdown from our team this fall.

Prevent Freezing

Any water left in the system or its water lines is likely to freeze during winter, causing significant damage. This frozen water then melts in spring, causing rust and mold. We’ll dry out the system.

Get Vital Maintenance

A fall shutdown is a good opportunity for our tech to get a look at your system after a long summer of heavy wear-and-tear. We’ll ensure everything looks good heading into spring and summer next year.

Finishing up our swamp cooler startup service, our technician puts the access panel for the swamp cooler back into place.

Extend System Life

Regular maintenance and care goes a long way to ensuring your swamp cooler lasts years longer than it would otherwise. Just like everything else, the right maintenance prevents breakdowns and issues.
