One of the most frequently asked questions our technicians receive is, “How much will my swamp cooler bring the temperature down?” Affordable Service Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning, and Electric services evaporative coolers (swamp coolers) and refrigerated air conditioners. Swamp coolers work best when the moisture in the air is low.

If you are new to New Mexico, we live in a dry climate the majority of the year. Swamp coolers work best when the moisture in the air is low. Unfortunately, that is not the case when it is monsoon season here in New Mexico. When monsoon season starts, June 15th through September 30th, New Mexico gets most of its annual moisture. With moisture comes humidity, and this is when your swamp cooler may struggle the most. When the humidity is above 20%, you can expect your swamp cooler to keep your home only about 10 degrees cooler than the temperature outside. We know that it can often feel like it is not cooling, and that is why we offer brand new, high efficiency refrigerated air conditioning systems by Carrier.
