As the weather begins to cool, you may be wondering when it’s the right time to shut down your swamp cooler, also known as an evaporative cooler, and if it’s time to invest in a maintenance plan through Affordable Service Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioner, and Electric. If you wonder how to winterize your swamp cooler yourself, you can check out our previous blog with step-by-step instructions.
There are three main reasons that a maintenance plan through Affordable Service is right for you.
- Prevent Damage: Since swamp coolers rely on water to operate, it’s also equally important to make sure that it is shut off without any presence of water. Our technicians understand how just one season with a little bit of standing water can cause corrosion to much of the working metal parts that keep your home cool in the summer. Our technicians not only professionally drain and clear out all free-standing water, but we also professionally cover it for the winter; this ensures that it is secure through rain and snowstorms over the winter and spring seasons before you start it.
- Avoiding Costly Repairs: When you have one of our professional technicians come to service your unit, you can rest assured that when we made sure that the water supply line was winterized properly. One of the most replaced parts on a swamp cooler is the pump, which can have a short lifespan and the water supply line that was incorrectly winterized and went through freezing and thawing all winter long and can even burst.
- No Need To Clean It: When you hire Affordable Service and pay for the maintenance plan, you pay for cleaning the unit when we winterize it. This means that it will be start-up ready when you call us out to turn it on.
One thing that justifies a maintenance plan through Affordable Service is that these efficient and professional winterizations help to extend the life and the parts of your evaporative cooler.
