Get the most out of your swamp cooler during the humid Monsoon season

Swamp coolers don’t cool as well when the air is humid.  To get the most out of you cooler during the New Mexico Monsoon season, follow these tips:

  • Open a few windows only 3”-4” each in the warmest rooms of the house or in the rooms where you want the cool air to go.  Don’t open too many windows or warm air will enter the home.  The home should be only slightly pressurized with the cooler operating, so that the exterior door will blow closed a few inches on its own, but not slam. 
  • Automatic air vents sized properly eliminate the need for open windows and prevent warm air from entering the home when a thermostat control turns off the cooler.  An average home can require 4 or more vents for proper sizing.  At $125 each, (installed), the cost can add up.  Contact Hart Heating and Air Conditioning for more information about Automatic air vents.  Otherwise, turn the thermostat control to a setting which remains on while the windows are open.
  • Turn the cooler on early before it gets too warm so that it does not have to cool down a warm house.  Its easier for the swamp cooler to maintain a cool temperature.
  • Close the blinds or curtains on windows facing the sun, so that the swamp cooler doesn’t have to compete with this heat source.
  • Avoid baking or cooking in the kitchen as much as possible, especially during the hottest times of day.  Use the grill outside or dine out.  The restaurant will probably have Air Conditioning!
  • Open all the windows when it is cool out, then close them as soon as it starts to warm up.
  • A clean and properly serviced swamp cooler will cool your home better.  If you suspect that your cooler is not working at its optimum, call Hart Heating and Air Conditioning to check it out.  Sometimes performance can be increased by making some adjustments or installing a larger blower pulley & motor.

Evaporative coolers remain the least expensive method of cooling over the electric costs of operating Central Air Conditioning, (Refrigerated Air).  Newer Air Conditioning systems are becoming more efficient, but still use much more electricity than Swamp Coolers. Central Air Conditioning will typically increase your electric bill by about $100/month during June & July, and $75/month during May & August.

Central Air Conditioning does cool better on humid days, they are quieter inside the house, and they keep out air contaminants, dust, & pollen.    Hart Heating and Air Conditioning can convert a typical home in Albuquerque to Central Air Conditioning for only $5105.00 plus tax.  This includes permits, labor, equipment, materials, and all costs.
