Why Your Swamp Cooler Needs Prep Work for Summer!

If you’ve never jogged a mile in your life, how well do you think you’d do in a marathon? Could be a struggle, wouldn’t you expect? Maybe some huffing and puffing and conking out before the finish line?

Your evaporative cooling system is about to launch into a serious marathon through the long summer months. And unless you want it to huff and puff and conk out before the cool temperatures return, you’d be wise to get your system ready.

Our Olympic Athletes know that they can’t jump into their sport of choice and take home gold medals just when it’s convenient. They’ve got to prepare for the long run. Similarly, your swamp cooler or evaporative cooler needs some prep work to make sure it’s ready for the endurance test it’s facing.

After a very cold winter across the country, we’re heading into a really hot summer, and you can expect your evaporative cooling system to see heavy action during the scorching days ahead. Your best bet for preparation is preventive maintenance, which can help us detect potential problems before they occur – while also improving your system’s energy efficiency.

Without preventive maintenance, the odds increase that your evaporative cooling system will lose its strength as it works harder and harder each day. With preventive maintenance, you can save money on energy bills while also helping avoid inconvenient repairs and shortened equipment life.

What does prep work involve? Your check-up will include a new water control valve and a new V drive belt in spring. If you have a swamp cooler it will also include new Aspen pads. We inspect and clean the pan and pumps, check and tighten all electrical connections, oiling bearing and motors. If you have an evaporative cooler we clean the filter media, checking blower and motor pulley for quiet operation, check for proper saturation of filter media, and check run your system for proper operation.

Not only can a tune-up reset your equipment to factory fresh condition, it can also bring out hidden problems that are increasing your energy costs and creating potential health and safety issues. By doing so, tune-ups often pay for themselves many times over through energy savings as well as avoiding future repairs and improving indoor air quality.
