How Prepping Your Swamp Cooler for Summer Can Save You Money

May 17, 2017 8:07 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Swamp coolers, also called evaporative coolers are ideal cooling solutions for our Colorado Springs, CO customers. Not only are they an affordable to purchase as a supplement or alternative to a normal air conditioning unit, but they are also take much less energy to operate which saves on operational costs and electric bills. Just like any important system in your home, however, they need to be regularly maintained in order to make sure they function properly and work when you need them the most.

Why swamp coolers need to be inspected each season

Unlike your regular heating and cooling system, swamp coolers are normally not used year round. That means that they spend a good portion of the year idle, which can lead to a build up of debris and other elements that can harm the system. When the evaporative cooler needs to be turned off and stored for a season, it will need to be prepped. Likewise, when it’s time to turn on the system for the summer, it’s wise to have a professional perform an inspection and some routine maintenance to get the swamp cooler ready and in full working order.

Proper swamp cooler preparation saves money

In short, swamp cooler preparation saves you money because an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure (and a lot of discomfort).

Breakdowns and major malfunctions of the system can be costly. When you have your swamp cooler prepped for summer early, you avoid costly breakdowns when you most need your cooling system to function properly – the hottest months of the year.

After all, why wait until it heats up to know if your swamp cooler is running effectively?
