Shout it from the rooftop for all of Colorado to hear: “Traditional air conditioning is not your only choice when it comes to staying cool!”
Because of our unique climate, evaporative coolers, also known as swamp coolers, are often a viable choice. Call the Climate Control Company to find out what’s best for you.
Like nearly every choice in life, there are plusses and minuses. Let’s start with the advantages of swamp coolers. They are efficient at what they do because no energy is used to directly cool the air. A swamp cooler takes outside air, passes it over pads saturated with water to cool it. Think of it like this, lick your finger and hold it up to the wind and your finger feels cool as the moisture evaporates. That’s evaporative cooling.
A fan blows the newly cooled air into the structure (generally no ductwork) and displaces the inside air through open windows or other vents.
It can be a good choice in Colorado for two basic, but very important reasons:
There are also good reasons to choose a central air conditioner. The air is cooled with refrigerant and also dehumidified. On days of extreme heat, it will do a better job of keeping a home or business cool and comfortable, but your utility bills will be higher.
There is also an air quality issue. An air conditioner pulls air from within the house and filters it before it is circulated throughout your home. An evaporative cooler is always pulling air from the outside. If the air quality happens to be poor because of nearby wildfires or dusty conditions, it can mean poor indoor air quality.
Another option is to use a swamp cooler for primary cooling, but have a supplemental air conditioner for those really hot days. A great option is a ductless mini split heat pump. It delivers cooled air to specific rooms or work areas without having to add ductwork.
What you need to do is call Climate Control to answer these questions. Is an air conditioning installation necessary? Is an evaporative cooler a better option? Should you be looking at some combination of the two systems to keep your home or business cool and comfortable?
Whatever decision you make, you can always count on Climate Control Company for all of your HVAC service, maintenance, and repair needs.
