Evaporative Cooling Systems
Evaporative cooling systems (swamp coolers) are a cost-effective way to cool your Albuquerque home or business. Western Mechanical can help you install, repair and maintain an evaporative cooling system to help you keep indoor temperatures and your utility costs comfortably low.
Benefits of Evaporative Cooling Systems
Evaporative coolers cool your home or business by moving air cooled by the natural water evaporation process. The simplicity of an evaporative cooling system comes with many benefits, including:
- Up to 75% energy savings compared to refrigerated air conditioners
- Significant cost savings on your monthly utility bill
- Ambient moisture in your home
Because evaporative cooling systems are low-tech, maintenance and repairs are usually quick, easy and less expensive.
Evaporative Cooler Maintenance and Repair
The best way to ensure your evaporative cooler works efficiently during the hot summer months is to conduct seasonal checks. As part of our routine maintenance contract, the technicians at Western Mechanical will check:
- Belts and pulleys
- Cooler pan(s)
- Motors and bearings
- Pump screen
We adjust, clean and/or replace parts as needed to maximize your evaporative cooler’s performance and extend the life of the system.
Evaporative Cooler Conversion
If your evaporative cooling system is not providing the indoor climate you prefer, you may be interested in converting to a refrigerated air conditioning system. The technicians at Western Mechanical can help you understand the process (and cost) of converting your cooling system and help you select the unit that best fits your needs. We carry top brands of refrigerated air conditioners and will install and maintain your new central air conditioning system.
