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 Swamp Cooler Questions.

Is your startup and shutdown service really necessary?

Yes. Winterizing and de-winterizing your swamp cooler is an essential part of keeping it in good, working order for years to come. In the winter, any water left in the system will freeze, damaging parts and lines. As water is trapped, mold may begin to grow, impacting your indoor air quality and potentially leading to people in your home getting sick. Plus, without regular inspections and maintenance, your evaporative cooler is more likely to malfunction or develop problems.

What are the signs something’s wrong with my cooler?

First and foremost, if your swamp cooler isn’t cooling your home like it usually does, that’s a sign you need to call us. However, strange sounds or smells could also indicate a problem. Scraping or screeching sounds probably indicate a mechanical issue, while odd, musty odors might point to trapped water and mold growth. If anything seems ‘off’ about your swamp cooler, it’s better to be safe than sorry and give us a call for service.

How do I know if I need a new one?

As swamp coolers age, they tend to run less effectively, more noisily, and use greater energy. You may start to see components rusting or deteriorating. These are all potential signs that it might be time to replace your evaporative cooler. At Wagner, we install new swamp coolers in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. We also help with forced air installation, upgrading homeowners to central air conditioning and heating. Call us to get estimates and review your options with a certified HVAC expert.

Is an evaporative cooler right for my home?

If you don’t have a forced air or central air conditioning and heating system, an evaporative cooler might be a good choice for your home—especially if you have pre-existing connections for one. Swamp coolers are incredibly popular here in New Mexico due to our relatively mild spring, summer, and fall weather. As an added bonus, these systems help add some humidity to homes, which is uniquely helpful here given how dry our air is!
