What Are Swamp Coolers?
Swamp coolers are a popular choice for homeowners looking to cool their homes in Broomfield without breaking the bank. These units use water-absorbing pads to pull heat out of the air and disperse it into the surrounding environment. They work well in areas where there is plenty of shade and humidity, like the summer months.
Unfortunately, many believe swamp coolers and air conditioners are similar. In fact, they’re very different. Air conditioners require electricity, while swamp coolers don’t. They also come in a variety of sizes and shapes, including window mount models.
Are Evaporative Coolers Right for You?
Swamp coolers work best in dry climates because they use water to cool air. However, using water increases the moisture in your home or business, which can cause mold or mildew. In addition, if you live in a humid environment, adding more humidity to the space could increase your risk for mold and mildew.
Fortunately, Broomfield isn’t a very humid city, making swamp coolers an ideal choice for cooling systems in our area. If you want to install one yourself, we recommend contacting Brothers Air Conditioning & Heating today. We’ll help you find the perfect solution for your needs.
3 Reasons to Choose Swamp & Evaporative Coolers
Beyond cooling down your home when the temperatures go up outside, swamp coolers come with a variety of other benefits. Here are three of them.
- Colorado’s Dry Air – Our high altitude and dry air can be uncomfortable at times, and even trigger allergies and asthma. A swamp cooler adds moisture back into your environment, helping prevent dry eyes and skin, chapped lips, and stuffy noses.
- Lower Costs, Less Maintenance – Compared to a standard air conditioning unit, swamp coolers typically cost less to install, operate and maintain. They also use less energy which provides the potential to keep your home cool without drastically increased utility costs.
- Cool, Quiet Fresh Air – While standard AC units simply circulate the air that’s already in your home, an evaporative cooler pulls fresh air in from the outside. This is accomplished using small motors and fans that produce far less noise pollution.
