Why Swamp coolers in Idaho?

If you want fresh air, humidity and cheap cooling then swamp cooling might be the best and most economical fit for your home.  In a lot of applications swamp cooling is the economical way to go, especially for a shop or warehouse.  You get 100% fresh air, cheap cooling and low maintenance.  If you have large spaces with doors that are opening and closing frequently, a mechanical air conditioning unit would become much more costly compared to a swamp cooler.   With swamp coolers you actually want the air to be vented back to the outside, this helps keep the humidity low and the cooling effective.  swamp coolers give an environment that doesn't dry out your skin and sinuses, where as traditional air conditioner systems remove the humidity from the air. Another great feature to this style of cooling is there is no refrigerant to replace, it uses water as the cooling agent.  One of the only downfalls to evaporative cooling is that on really hot days the air you get out of an evaporator cooler is not quite as cool compared to a mechanical air conditioner

Required Maintenance

 As with all mechanical equipment there is of course annual or bi-annual maintenance that is required to get a long trouble free life out of your swamp cooler.  Some of this is as simple as cleaning and inspecting the unit in the spring for proper operation of all parts and motors and in the fall making sure everything is properly drained down on your evaporative cooler to prevent freeze breaks once winter hits.  There is actually very little maintenance on these units.
