An Evaporative Cooler, also known as a Swamp Cooler, is one of nature’s most efficient means of cooling and in many cases can be a very reasonable alternative to a central air conditioning system for your home! Many people new to Colorado are not sure exactly what swamp coolers are or what the differences are between swamp coolers and air conditioners.
How a Swamp Cooler Works
In short, a swamp cooler works on the principle of heat absorption by moisture evaporation. The swamp cooler draws exterior air into special pads soaked with water, where the air is cooled by evaporation, and then re-circulated. Swamp coolers work best in dry climates where humidity is low, i.e. the Rocky Mountains! They can be easily repaired or replaced and cost less to operate than most conventional air conditioning systems.
Swamp coolers provide a different type of cooling than an air conditioner, which is a matter of preference from one customer to another.
