Swamp Cooler Maintenance and Repair Services
Many Colorado homes use swamp coolers (evaporative coolers) to beat the heat and save money. Installing an evaporative cooler is a great option for reducing your electric bills and can pay for itself in a matter of years, depending on the situation. We only employ fully trained and qualified HVAC technicians who offer years of experience in the maintenance, repair and installation of ductless air conditioning systems. We also offer a 2 year guarantee on all work!
Why is an evaporative or “swamp” cooler the perfect solution for cooling Colorado homes? The answer is simple… while Colorado can get hot during some months in the summer, it is also a very dry climate. Our low humidity allows us to take full advantage of everything that an evaporative cooler has to offer over a traditional, freon-based air conditioning unit.
What’s the difference between an evaporative cooler and an air conditioning unit? A traditional air conditioning system uses a compressed refrigerant like freon to cool the air and require more energy to operate with their complex compressors and coils. Evaporative cooling, on the other hand, is simple in that it cools air by the natural evaporation of water. A swamp cooler unit contains two or more cooling pads that are made up of wood wool, wood fibers, or synthetic material. These pads are soaked with water and air is allowed to flow through them. As the air passes through the soaked pads, the vapor from the evaporation cools the air and a fan pushes the cooler air through a duct and into the house.
How can installing an evaporative cooler really save money? Evaporative coolers are less expensive to install and much easier to repair than air conditioning units. The dry climate in Colorado does one thing really well… and that is to evaporate water quickly. This allows swamp coolers in Colorado to not only save energy expenses, but cool the air more effectively than in other more humid regions of the country.
Do swamp coolers help with allergies? In many cases, swamp coolers can improve the breathability of the air in a home by increasing the humidity of the air indoors.
