What is an Evaporative Cooler?
An evaporative cooler uses a special silicon based cooling agent that allows water to evaporate at much lower temperatures than is normal. So, when warm air is moved over the water saturated pads inside your cooler, the water immediately evaporates and cools that air by as much as 40 degrees. A fan then vents the air into your home and displaces warm air through open windows.
Because an evaporative cooler does not use a compressor to circulate coolant, it uses significantly less electricity than a traditional air conditioner and is quite efficient in very hot and dry temperatures. On average, a evaporative cooler in Phoenix, AZ uses about a quarter the electricity of a central air conditioner and cost half as much to run.
Phoenix AZ Evaporative Cooler Installation
An evaporative cooler is not right for every home. These devices are only suitable if your humidity level is low enough that the water will evaporate when the fan is on. Additionally, keep in mind that these coolers require frequent maintenance – much more than a traditional refrigerant–based air conditioner because it uses water as a cooling source.
That said, if you drain and clean your evaporative cooler often and have us perform annual maintenance on the device, there shouldn’t be any issues getting the system to work effectively for years to come, saving you a tremendous amount of money in the process.
Phoenix AZ Evaporative Cooler Maintenance
If you plan on using your evaporative cooler frequently, make sure you check the pads, clean the drain pipe and flush the system once per month to avoid mold growth and sediment build up. Annual maintenance will be done as well, but a homeowner’s responsibilities are greater with an evaporative cooler – it is more like a humidifier than a traditional air conditioner.
