Let Us Shutdown Your Swamp Cooler

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. As the weather begins to cool in the high desert, there comes a point where your swamp cooler needs to be shut down for the season. That’s when you need to call us. Wagner offers professional swamp cooler shutdown services to homeowners in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Our swamp cooler shutdown removes any remaining water from the system, preventing rusting, freezing, and other problems.

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.

The Benefits of a Seasonal Shutdown

Get Vital Maintenance

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.

Prevent Freezing

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.

Why You Should Consider Switching To A Refrigerated A/C Unit Instead Of A Swamp Cooler

Navigating through the intricacies of home cooling, the distinction between refrigerated air conditioning (A/C) and swamp coolers becomes paramount. Refrigerated A/C, beyond merely cooling your space, provides a litany of additional benefits such as reliably maintaining your desired temperature even on humid days, extracting humidity from the air, and providing a sanctuary of clean air during wildfire seasons by clearing smoke. Moreover, it plays a role in promoting a healthier indoor environment by filtering out allergens and pollutants. On the other hand, swamp coolers, while optimal in dry, temperate climates, have their limitations, including only being able to cool the air by a maximum of 10 degrees from the outside temperature and necessitating the intake of external air into your home. Additionally, swamp coolers can inadvertently increase your water bill due to their operational mechanics. Making the switch to a refrigerated A/C unit means choosing a solution that is not only efficient in varied climate conditions but also beneficial in enhancing air quality and maintaining a crisp, clean atmosphere in your home.

We Answer Your Top Shutdown Questions.

Is a swamp cooler shutdown really necessary?

Yes. Winterizing your swamp cooler is one of the best things you can do for its long-term health. Most swamp cooler problems start when water—left in the lines or elsewhere—freezes during winter, melts during spring, and start to corrode the metal. All that standing water can also lead to mold and mildew growth. The purpose of a shutdown, in many ways, is to remove and block any moisture from getting into the swamp cooler while it’s not in active use.

When is the best time to schedule a shutdown?

The best time to schedule your swamp cooler shutdown is in the middle of fall: before freezing temperatures arrive, but after you’re done with your swamp cooler for the season. Bear in mind that you won’t be able to use your swamp cooler after it’s been shut down, covered, and winterized, so you’ll want to make sure hot days and nights are firmly behind you before you have us out for this service. Give us a call right away so we can get you on the schedule.

What else can I do to winterize my home?

If you’re having us shut down your swamp cooler for the season, consider taking the opportunity to also have Wagner get your furnace ready for winter. A professional furnace checkup can help your heating system run efficiently and effectively all season long. Just like swamp cooler startup and maintenance, our thorough, professional checkups can reduce your risk of a winter breakdown.
