Increase Your Swamp Cooler’s Efficiency in Four Simple Steps

During the summer months in Glenwood Springs, you realize that the weather conditions will be hot and dry for this time of the year. Have you considered your Glenwood Springs air conditioning options? A swamp cooler can be an excellent way to cool your home efficiently, if you follow a few tips.

Tips to Make Your Swamp Cooler More Effective

  • Open the Window. An evaporative or swamp cooler works by pulling air into the room, so opening the windows about two inches allows cross-ventilation and control of the air flow.
  • Make Sure the Tank is Full and Pads are Wet.  A swamp cooler relies on evaporation to cool the air, so an adequate supply of water is necessary. Otherwise, the system just blows hot air.
  • Allow Cooler to Run Before Turning on Blower. Like a car engine runs best when allowed to warm up, your swamp cooler should have run time before the blower is turned on. Waiting about 15 minutes to turn on the blower allows the system to get the water circulating and to prime the pump.
  • Clean the Cooler Regularly. As with most systems, when dirt, dust and environmental pollutants build up, the motor in a swamp cooler has to work harder, and in some cases, may not work at all. Following a regular cleaning schedule will lessen occurrence of a system malfunction.

By following these simple steps, you’ll decrease the chance that you’ll need air conditioner repair when the weather is at its hottest in Glenwood Springs, when you need cooling the most.
