A swamp cooler – also referred to as evaporative, desert, or wet air coolers – is an alternative to traditional home air conditioners. The way they work is fairly simple. Think about the last time you got out of a pool on a hot day and immediately felt a chill. That chill is your body’s reaction to dry air passing over the water on your skin and absorbing some of it, immediately lowering your temperature. This same concept is behind how swamp coolers work. Water molecules are turned into gas molecules when the temperature and vapor pressure of water make an attempt to equalize with the surrounding air. Swamp coolers use fans to draw warm, still air into the unit and pass that air over moistened pads before circulating it back out at a lower temperature.
Why choose a swamp cooler?
Swamp coolers are ideal for areas where the relative humidity is 60% or less, AKA Denver, CO and the surrounding metro. They’re a great option for people looking for ecologically friendly, low-cost home cooling. They’re also great for places that have a lot of fresh, natural air that can be pulled from open windows. Since Colorado has classically dry air, the evaporative cooling process not only cools the air in your home, but humidifies it as well, making it more comfortable and enjoyable.
