Swamp Cooler Install and Repair

We now will be installing and servicing swamp coolers/evaporative coolers! You can rely on and trust our technicians here at Humphrey Plumbing Heating and Air to install, replace, repair, and tune-up your swamp cooler for summer. What swamp coolers do is cool air through the evaporation of water. The difference between these systems and air conditioning equipment is the fact that air conditioners use vapor-compression refrigeration or absorption refrigeration. Swamp coolers convert water into vapor using thermal energy, which makes for a lower air temperature. Swamp coolers are highly recommended for Utah climate, and we can’t agree more!

A good example of natural evaporative cooling is like when we sweat or perspire, when our bodies sweat we cool down; trees do the same by releasing large amounts of water through pores in their leaves. Evaporation depends on the humidity and temperature of air. Evaporative cooling systems have been used since 2500 BC- some fresco paintings have depictions of people fanning jars of water to cool rooms.

Some advantages to owning a swamp cooler as opposed to an air conditioner are the more “green” effects it has when using and conserving energy. Evaporative cooling is better for the environment by using water instead of refrigerant chemicals, the water vapor is recycled- producing no waste, They are less expensive to install and to use, roughly 75% less energy is used with a swamp cooler as opposed to an air conditioner. The main parts used in a swamp cooler unit are the fan motor and water pump which are inexpensive equipment to replace/repair.
