The Benefits of Refrigerated Air
It’s going to be getting hot soon — you want to make sure that you have cold air to get you through the summer. But if you have that unique-to-the-Southwest cooling system known as a swamp cooler, you may not get the relief you need.
It may be time to think about switching over from evaporative cooling to refrigerated air with R & R Heating & Air.
Why Refrigerated Air Offers More Benefit than Swamp Coolers
Refrigerated air has a number of benefits that evaporative coolers don’t, including:
Many times, swamp coolers require a lot of maintenance to keep them running. Readying a swamp cooler for summer means you must:
- Connect the water pump
- Fill the water pan
- Uncover the unit
Readying a swamp cooler for winter means:
- Disconnecting the water pump
- Emptying the water pan
- Covering the unit
Many swamp coolers require service throughout the summer to maintain optimal cooling ability. Air conditioning units rarely require seasonal maintenance, only regular changing of the filters.
Fewer Allergens in the Home
Because swamp coolers use water to cool homes, moisture can collect in even the driest climates. Humidity can cause to the growth of allergens such as mold to grow within walls and under floors.
Because refrigerated air systems don’t create humidity, they will not create an ideal environment in which mold and other allergens can grow. The filters within an air conditioning system can also reduce the allergens that make it into the home from outdoor air.
More Efficient Cooling
Air conditioners offer more efficient cooling of homes and businesses than do swamp coolers. With swamp coolers, the air requires constant cooling to maintain temperature, and the presence of humidity in the air can negate the swamp cooler’s effects.
Humidity does not have an effect on the ability of air conditioners to cool your home.
