Is It Time to Convert to Refrigerated Air?

Spring has arrived in Albuquerque and while we still have a few weeks here and there of cold weather, the warmer months are approaching quickly. Summer will be here before we know it and with summer comes high temperatures. You’re going to want to make sure you have the right cooling system in place to combat those high temperatures and keep you and your family nice and cool. If you’ve been using a swamp cooler, maybe it’s time to investigate refrigerated air and the benefits it can provide over your evaporative cooler. But, how do you know if changing over is the right thing for you to do currently? Don’t worry, Affordable Service Plumbing Heating and Cooling can give you the answers. Let’s look at some of the many benefits that refrigerated air can offer you!


If you’ve lived in Albuquerque or Rio Rancho for any given amount of time with a swamp cooler, you know what happens: when the humidity rises during monsoon season, it means that your home won’t stay cool! This is one of the most common complaints from people with swamp coolers. There is a myth that refrigerated air removes all moisture from a home, but that is false. It will remove most moisture, but it will still maintain a comfortable 20-30% level of moisture. If you’re tired of having sleepless nights because your house won’t stay cool during the monsoon, it may be the right time for refrigerated air.

Less maintenance

Swamp coolers need start up and shut down services each year, replacement pads, belts, and pumps. Refrigerated air will cut down on the cost of that maintenance. Plus, if your swamp cooler is a rooftop mounted unit, it will eliminate the need to climb up on your roof. Not needing to get on your roof can be an issue of safety, especially if you’re older. Allergies

Swamp coolers use evaporated moisture to cool your home. If you have allergies, asthma or if you’re sensitive to mold, a swamp cooler certainly isn’t your best bet for cooling. Refrigerated air will deliver a higher level of air quality into your home which means you’ll spend more time relaxing in comfort instead of blowing your nose or fighting off illness.


Window-mounted swamp coolers require you to leave a window open so the unit can process the air outside and filter it into your home. Obviously, leaving a window open for your swamp cooler adds the potential for a security issue. Those of us with pets also want to keep our homes cool for them as well during the hot summers. Refrigerated air can resolve this issue for you!
