Say Goodbye To The Swamp Cooler And Get True Air Conditioning


If you've been trying to use an evaporative cooler, you know that it's next to impossible to keep the house cool on humid days. You even have to keep the windows open a bit to help regulate the moisture coming out of the evaporative cooler, which makes the heat inside the home even worse. There comes a point where the supposed energy savings offered by swamp coolers just aren't worth it because your house gets so uncomfortable, and if you've reached that point, it might be time to consider switching over to real central air conditioning.

Works When Humid

With central air, humidity is not a factor in whether or not you can cool down. The air conditioner actually draws out humidity from the air, making your home feel much more comfortable without needing excessive use. The unit must be sized properly for your home, but once you get the right size in there, you'll notice a world of difference.

Better Temperature Control

Because you aren't going to be as captive to the whims of the local weather, you'll find the temperature control in a central system is a lot more consistent. It's true that very, very hot days, when temperatures are at record highs, could be tough to deal with, but that would be true for any system. Central air makes those days easier to get through because the whole system works together to control increases in temperature in your home. Even better is the fact that central air doesn't create humidity like evaporative cooling does, so you don't get that extra-close feeling in the air if the system is on for a long time.

Less Water Use

Central air does not need water to run. Evaporative coolers are called evaporative because they do need water so they can expel cool water vapor into the room. If you switch to a central system, then, you'll find your water bills dropping.

Energy Efficiency

One of the reasons people try to use evaporative coolers is that they tend to use less energy than central air -- or at least, that's the way it was in the past. New energy-efficient central air systems allow you to run central air without incurring energy bills that are excessively expensive. Your local energy rates do play a role, but overall, you shouldn't see a huge jump.

Central air has really improved over the past few decades. If that old evaporative cooler is not serving you well, you may want to finally make the switch to central.

Learning About HVAC Services

Hi there, I am Nadine Bachmier. I am going to discuss the various ways HVAC contractors can keep the temperatures in your business stable. HVAC contractors focus on maintaining and repairing the air conditioner, furnace, and ductwork used in your building. To keep the heating and cooling system in good shape, contractors may need to replace internal components, clean out channels, or simply perform a full upgrade. I will talk about the tools and techniques used to maintain and repair the equipment in your building. I will also share information about new products as they hit the HVAC market. I hope you will follow along and learn all you can.
