Window-mounted swamp coolers can be serviced and maintained easily. Anyone can service and maintain a window mount swamp cooler with basic mechanical knowledge. This is in contrast to traditional AC maintenance, which is best left to experts. They are also easy to replace and affordable.
Winterizing Your Window With An Evaporative Cooler
Turn off the water supply to ensure the air cooler doesn't rust. Then, rinse the water pan, and get rid of all dirt and minerals that may have settled in it during winter.
Regularly Changing The Cooler Pads
Regularly change cooling pads. The pads are pressed against an air cooler. Old pads with dirt or minerals on them can cause the coolers to rust. Rainwater will flow down the cooler and run down to the pad. It is better to change the pads in fall than spring to avoid rusting. People who don't change their pads to save money end up spending more because they might have to replace the whole cooler.
Filtered water, Distilled water, and Water Softener are the best options. Hard water can cause problems for your cooler. Hard water can cause spots to appear on filters. As water evaporates, mineral deposits will form on filters and pads. The efficiency of your air conditioner will be affected by calcium buildup.
You can clean your evaporative cooler if it is not working as efficiently due to water damage.
How To Pick A Good Window Cooler?
The design of the cooler pads and humidity levels in the ambient air are key factors to the efficiency of evaporative coolers.
Aspen pads are cheaper, easier to replace, and more efficient than synthetic ones. The latter will last longer.
Cellulose cooling pads are also called honeycomb pads. This is because they look like honeycombs. They are thicker than aspen pads, require less maintenance, and last a long time.
Because they only need to pump air, evaporative coolers can be more economical than traditional AC compressors. There is no need to compress any refrigerant gases. A typical residential swamp cooling fan is 1/3 to 3/4 horsepower. A residential AC compressor can run between 3 and 5 horsepower. When we add the cooling fans and condensing fans, we can see that evaporative coolers use less energy.
Axial Fans Vs. Centrifugal Fans
Centrifugal fans come in three main types: forward-curved, backward-inclined, and airfoil. Centrifugal fans are less efficient at 50-60% efficiency, while axial fans are 80-90% more efficient. If you are looking for an efficient evaporative cooler, an axial fan is the best option, particularly with the direct drive or static regain cooling devices.
The cooler has an automatic thermal-overload switch, which shuts down the motor when it heats up and then turns it on again once it cools down.
The cooler's metal parts are protected by polyester, which is resistant to corrosion.
