HOW TO GET THE SWAMP COOLER READY FOR SUMMER
Remember when your dad would say, “Time to change the swamp cooler pads and get ready for summer.” Up the ladder you would go wondering if this is the year I die from falling off the hot dirty roof. Summer came with the noisy, extra humid stinky air. Nostalgic it may be, would you want to do it today? Is it even possible for you to do it on today’s sophisticated cooling equipment?
In Washington County our heating and air conditioning equipment works hard. If compared to the run time hours on a car it would equal nearly 100,000 miles.
Do you run your car for 100,000 without oil change, tire rotation or tune-up?

The more they run, the more the parts wear and unlike an air conditioner which does not run constantly and has premium efficiency cooling the home
- swamp coolers are most often at peak cooling efficiency up to 90 degree weather
- limited area square footage that they can cool. It is important to have the right size of swamp cooler and to have a tune-up set up each year to keep the system running at top performance as long as possible
- indoor cooling is not even, cooling zones are very uneven for swamp coolers since they usually have one or two vents in a building rather than central a/c which is in every room
- swamp coolers are windy and noisy, in order to cool the home a swamp cooler pushes out a large volume of cool air in one or two spots and is definitely a loud operation
- swamp coolers bring in dust, pollen, and particles from the outside of the home that can irritate allergies and increase indoor air pollution (even with a new clean pad)

The life expectancy of most systems is 20 years, and at 15 they have lost a significant portion of its efficiency. This checklist will help determine whether you may need new equipment:
- Equipment is 20 years old.
- Equipment struggles to keep temperature when it is hot or cold outside.
- Equipment produces excessive noise.
- Equipment seems to be breaking down more often.
- Expensive repairs are required to keep units cooling or heating.
New equipment saves money on utilities, it is also an excellent way to insulate you from rising energy costs. New equipment is much quieter and carries parts/labor warranties up to 12 years. These wonderful warranties mean no out of pocket cost repairs for up to 12 years.
