Evaporative coolers, also known as swamp coolers, are suitable for climates with hot air and low humidity. They merge the natural cooling properties of water with a constant air flow to lower indoor temperatures.
A few important factors are necessary to consider before purchasing an evaporative cooler.

Evaporative Cooling
A combination of the natural cooling properties of evaporating water with an efficient air moving system is underlaid in the process of reducing indoor temperature by evaporative coolers. Airflow is regulated by opening windows letting the unit to push warm air outside. Evaporative coolers also increase moisture, which keeps fabrics and wood from drying out, and the water-filled pads work as a type of filter, removing dust and allergens from the air.

Evaporative Coolers vs. Air Conditioning
Evaporative coolers can be used as the only cooling system in your home, or to accompany existing air conditioning systems. However, they should never be used at the same time, because one adds humidity, while the other removes it.

Evaporative coolers show several benefits over air conditioning, including:
• Installation and maintenance costs are reasonable
• 75% less electricity usage
• A standard 120 volt outlet
• Absence of ozone damaging refrigerants
• Fresh air flow squeezes out warm air, smoke and pollution
• Breeze makes effective room temperature feel 4 to 6 degrees cooler


Evaporative coolers are typically classified by where they are installed and the type of pads they use. They fall into these categories:

1. Portable Coolers cool small rooms, usually up to 300 square feet.
2. Mobile Coolers cool larger, open spaces such as warehouses or garages. They can be used outside on patios or on job sites.
3. Window or Through-the-Wall units cool one room, an entire house or a garage.
4. Down Discharge coolers are installed on the roof, releasing the cooled air down into the structure and are meant to cool an entire home.
5. Side Discharge units are typically installed on the side of the building directly into the attic area. They can also cool an entire house.

“Thank you Cerritos Plumbing! I am very pleased with my new tankless water heater. Your technicians worked very hard and didn’t leave until they were sure I had hot water. Integrating the tankless into my existing hydronic heating system was a challenge, but your team did a great job trouble-shooting an installing the right equipment.”
