Regardless of what kind of air conditioner you have, an AC unit in your home or business is essential in El Paso. While most home and business owners are switching over to refrigerated air, many are still choosing to stick with a swamp cooler. Refrigerated air is a more advanced system and it requires less maintenance. However, swamp coolers definitely have their own advantages as well.
Advantages of a Swamp Cooler
Most homeowners decide to stick to a swamp cooler because it is more cost effective in many ways. First of all, purchasing the actual unit will cost thousands less than a refrigerated air conditioner. Secondly, the cost of running this system is far less as well. A swamp cooler runs on a very simple system. A pump pours water onto pads which become very wet. From there, air is pushed through the pads into the home. The moist air brings the temperature in the home down. The electrical and water costs are minimal compared to running a refrigerated system. Because a swamp cooler runs on such a simple system, the repairs are relatively quick and easy. Pumps are usually very inexpensive as well.

Disadvantages of a Swamp Cooler
Many people overlook the benefit of low utility costs and an inexpensive cooling unit for several reasons. Swamp coolers tend not to function well when there is humidity in the air. In El Paso, rainy weather can cause a swamp cooler to be ineffective. These AC units also require a few windows or doors in the home to remain cracked. This is another downside for many homeowners. Because of the simple system that these coolers run on, they also tend to break down more often. A technician will need to get on your roof to make repairs.
