Keeping your space cool on hot summer days will go a long way in ensuring comfort and high productivity through the season. However, you will need to choose the right cooling system for your home if you are to enjoy these benefits. An evaporative cooler, or swamp cooler, is an appliance that cools air through the evaporation of water. These cooling devices are energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, and deliver reliable performance. Here is what to know before installing a cooler in your home.
Evaporative swamp cooling is not just for industrial and commercial spaces. Premier Industries, Inc. is proud to sell a line of residential coolers so that every home can benefit from the efficiency and quality of our products. Here is a closer look at the available options and features of our residential swamp coolers.

Residential Cooling Benefits
Evaporative cooling units work differently from your standard air conditioner. Understanding how the devices work can help you make the most of the system and reduce energy consumption. The water in these units soaks into the cooling pad while the fan draws in warm, dry air across the wet pad. This process causes the water to evaporate, effectively lowering the temperature of the surrounding air. The cool air is then pushed out into your home by the fan to cool down space.
Below are some of the benefits of using these coolers:
- Energy Efficiency
Every homeowner would want to keep their space comfortable without having to worry about high cooling costs. A cooler relies on the evaporation of water to lower temperature in your home, reducing the energy input required. Compared to traditional air conditioning units, these cooling units are energy-efficient and cost-effective. The devices work best in areas with hot, dry climates where evaporation takes place quickly. With a well-designed cooling unit, you can save much of the energy costs you would need for a traditional air conditioner. The energy efficiency of the units can help you save money associated with operational costs.
- Low Initial Capital Investment
Apart from lower operational costs, these units cost less when it comes to purchasing and installation costs. For a fraction of the price of a standard air conditioner, you will get a powerful cooling system that works efficiently in large spaces. As such, these cooling units are a good option for homeowners who have a tight budget. However, you should take time to identify a good supplier and ensure you consider the specific environmental conditions in the area you live in.
- Easy Installation and Maintenance
Most coolers have a simple design, few moving parts and do not require any ductwork. The units can be installed easily and quickly, a factor that contributes to the comparatively lower cost of installation. With the simple design, the cooling devices require minimal repair and maintenance. A good number of these units also come with sturdy housing for protection against the elements. The sturdy housing saves you money and time associated with finding a reliable technician every so often. When you buy and install these units, you can expect years of dependable cooling performance.
- Improved Air Quality
In addition to cooling air, a cooling system will filter air as well. During this process, the system will trap dust particles, pollen, and other allergens that could trigger reactions or cause respiratory health issues. This not only helps to minimize health risks but also ensures you enjoy improved indoor air quality. It also promotes easy breathing, better sleep, reduced odors, and balanced humidity. In short, a cooler can help you maintain a comfortable home environment when the outdoor temperature rises.
- Provide Greater Comfort
Unlike traditional air conditioners that remove moisture particles from the air, these cooling units produce moisture. Removing moisture from the air helps to lower temperatures but can create a dry environment that leads to irritation of the eyes and skin. These devices also rely on evaporation, making them much quieter than most of the air conditioners in the market. You can use them in your bedroom or office to provide comfortable room temperature while eliminating distractions from noise.
- Environmentally Friendly
Evaporative units are more efficient than standard cooling systems, helping reduce your carbon footprint and save on energy costs. Lower power consumption will reduce the load on the electricity grid, which helps to protect the environment during the summer. Regular air conditioners use ozone-depleting chemicals to cool your space, while these cooling units have only water, a fan, pump, and wet surface. The evaporation process keeps your home cool without having adverse effects on the environment.
- Improved Circulation of Fresh Air
One of the most notable benefits of these is that they work best when there is maximum air circulation. Ensuring constant airflow to improve efficiency may require that you open the doors and windows to your home. This helps to supply high quality and fresh air into your space at all times, effectively reducing contamination. The good news is that you will achieve this without increasing room temperature, which will further improve the comfort you enjoy at home.
