When you think hot-weather relief, do you automatically think air conditioner? If so, you need to include another option in your cooling HVAC repertoire––an evaporative cooler, more colloquially known as a swamp cooler. Here in Albuquerque, New Mexico, we have the arid type of heat where evaporative coolers work best.
At Abel Plumbing & Heating, we install, service, repair, and maintain several types of evaporative coolers. These are an effective alternative to air conditioners in this area of the U.S., as their price point is typically less, they are more environmentally friendly, and they are more energy efficient.
In the most simplistic terms, evaporative coolers work by blowing your home’s hot, dry air over a water-dampened pad and pushing that now-cooled air back into your home. Because evaporative coolers are an open system, drawing their outdoor air from open windows, there is always fresh air in your home. Many people prefer this type of system, as opposed to the closed system of an air conditioner where the same air is continuously recirculated throughout the home.
If you are contemplating either a replacement cooler or installing a new one for the first time, our experienced technicians are happy to visit your home to discuss what would work best for you. On the other hand, if you already have an evaporative cooler in your home, our knowledgeable technicians can perform maintenance or service on it or take care of any needed repairs.
