Affordable Service Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, and Electric have to check the efficiency of swamp coolers that often have calcium build up on the pads. This is why some evaporative coolers do not work when you need them to work the most. Excessive hard water build up easily blocks the flow of water and the efficiency of the evaporation that needs to happen. The hard water also has a tendency to build up on the water lines, preventing water from getting to the pads. Affordable Service technicians take their time in properly educating homeowners about how to clean their swamp coolers before the beginning of each cooling season. We recommend that you check your evaporative cooler pads yearly, and clean your lines at the same time. Affordable Service is always available if you are uncomfortable climbing up on your roof, our technicians are skilled and experienced and will get it up and running to keep you cool during the hot months.
Hard Water Effects On Your Swamp Cooler
Affordable Service Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, and Electric are called out to evaluate a lot of swamp coolers to help diagnose their cooling issues. Do you know that your swamp cooler is also called an evaporative cooler because it cools the air by causing water to evaporate? Swamp coolers work by being hooked into city water, and city water can be hard! It can be anywhere from 12 to 25 grains hard. Hard water is described as how many “dissolved” hardness minerals there are in 1 GPG (grain per gallon) of calcium and magnesium.
