What is an evaporative cooler?
Evaporative coolers are based on an age old technology. They work by simply pushing air over damp pads, where evaporation works for you. As anyone who has ever been sweaty knows, evaporation has a cooling effect. Swamp coolers use this concept to cool and humidify air that then passes into the home.
The main component of a swamp cooler is a blower. There is a fan at one end of the box that pulls air in from outside and pushes it into your home. Before the air reaches your home’s interior, it passes over a set of damp padding. As evaporation takes place, the air is cooled. A small pump works to ensure the pads stay damp so that the water does not all evaporate.
Fast Fact: This technology was used even by the ancient Egyptians who hung damp blankets in front of their homes in the summer to cool their indoor air.
Evaporative coolers employ an open system. They depend on the flow of air through your home to direct the cool air.Where central air conditioners use ducts to direct the airflow, swamp coolers usually depend on opening and closing windows and doors throughout your home to direct the flow of air.
The Benefits of a Swamp Cooler vs. Air Conditioner
Evaporative coolers can be a great alternative to air conditioners for certain situations. The following are all benefits of swamp coolers over air conditioners:
- Lower upfront cost: Swamp coolers are extremely affordable. They do not require as much upfront cost as an A/C system does.
- Lower operating costs: The monthly operating cost for evaporative coolers is significantly lower than that of A/C systems. It is about 1/3 the cost depending on your electricity and water costs. The real savings is found in the use of electricity. A standard A/C system uses as much as four times the amount of energy to run when compared to a swamp cooler.
- More environmentally friendly: Due to the lowered use of energy, swamp coolers are more environmentally friendly than A/C systems. And they do not employ the use of the environmentally harmful chemicals that air conditioning units use.
