So many times consumers do not take the time to truly think about the products that they use each and every day. We own many different products that we love but why do we love them? Do we love them because we truly did research on them and chose them for a reason? Or do we simply love them because that is just simply what we have always used? Sometimes it pays to get curious about the products that we own and if they are actually the best fit for us. Most people here in the Las Vegas Valley have a HVAC unit that provides them with the heating and cooling service that their home needs. Air conditioning units are what are traditionally installed in homes to help keep your home at a comfortable temperature. But there is also the option of using a swamp cooler to keep your home cool. Today Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is going to talk about what the pros and cons of a swamp cooler and a HVAC unit are.
Pros & Cons of Swamp Cooler
Let’s start with the swamp cooler. The technical name for a swamp cooler is an evaporative cooler. Swamp coolers take the air outside and suck it into unique pads inside the unit. The pads are soaked in water. Then the air is cooled by the evaporation and then re-circulated. Swamp coolers do not work well in areas where the humidity is high. Swamp coolers are beneficial for a variety of reasons. The reason that most people choose to install a swamp cooler is that they are more energy efficient. It cost less to run a swamp cooler to cool your home than it cost to run an air conditioner. They are also much quieter than an air conditioning unit. For those that are interested in doing their part to save the environment swamp coolers are enticing because they leave a lower carbon footprint. Another benefit is that a swamp cooler adds moisture to dry air. Since they use water to run some of that water is added to the air inside your home. There are also some downsides to using a swamp cooler. As mentioned above, they do not work well in areas where the humidity is high. They also do not work well when the temperatures are extremely hot. When the temperatures here in Las Vegas reach their summer peak a swamp cooler will not keep your home as cool as an air conditioner can. When you have a swamp cooler you do have to make sure that it is attached to a water source. Some consumers find this extremely annoying.
Advantages of Central Air Conditioning System
Most people are familiar with how air conditioning units work. They use electricity to cool your home to the temperature that you have set on your thermostat. Air conditioning units are great because you can control the temperature very precisely. Another benefit to air conditioning units is that they do not require daily maintenance. While swamp coolers add moisture to the air conditioning units remove moisture from the air. It depends on your personal preference whether you enjoy having more or less moisture in the air inside your home. Many people find too much moisture to be annoying to them. There are also some downsides to air conditioning units. They are more expensive to purchase and maintain than swamp coolers. They are noisier than swamp coolers as well. Air conditioning units are not as friendly to the environment.
