Depending on your home and your family’s preferences, it’s important to consider all the factors before choosing either a swamp cooler or refrigerated air to cool your home.
Evaporative cooling units, or swamp coolers are common for many homeowners because the cost is typically less expensive to install & operate. When the weather is dry, swamp coolers work well but lose efficiency once the humidity rises. If you live in a frequently humid environment, Refrigerated A/C may be a better option.
- Cheaper to run, but depends on cost of water
- Produces moist air, ideal for dry weather conditions
- Excessive moisture can cause wall & doorway swelling
- Ineffective in temperatures about 95 degrees or high humidity
Refrigerated air conditioning has many benefits over that of a swamp cooler, and may be the ideal choice for you if you’re considering a cooling system replacement. Humidity and temperature are easily maintained with refrigerated a/c, so for those living in high humidity environments this is an optimal solution for staying cool.
- Colder air than swamp cooler
- Consistent temperature
- Filters air & removes bugs, dust, pollen & smoke
- Electric expense is higher
