Evaporative coolers are common in the El Paso area since we live in a low-humidity climate. They are also known as swamp coolers, and the way they work is by evaporating water into the air, thus providing a natural and energy- efficient means of cooling your home or office. The focus of the evaporative cooler is to cool off the outdoor air by passing it over water-saturated pads, causing the water to evaporate into it. Once the hot outdoor air has been cooled off it then flows directly into the home, pushing warmer air out through the windows.
The more your evaporative cooler is running, the more likely you’ll find yourself needing to keep up with routine maintenance and an AC repair service in El Paso. Our skilled technicians here at El Paso Mechanical Technologies can replace worn pads, filters, reservoir and pumps. We recommend that evaporative coolers have their water pads replaced at least twice or even three times during the hottest months of the cooling season. Continuous use wears down the water pads much faster and if not changed regularly, then getting an AC repair service in El Paso can result and this causes a break in the flow of cool air for your home or office.
Evaporative coolers are not only great for our warm, dry Southwest region but also can save homeowners a hefty sum on their utility bills. These types of coolers also add humidity to the indoor air, which can benefit those who dislike the dry air. Another distinguishing factor about evaporative cooling that sets it apart from conventional air conditioners is that it adds fresh air to the home instead of recirculating the home air.
