Why Isn’t My Swamp Cooler Working?

When you’re at home in the summer, you want to stay cool, but it can be a nightmare if your swamp cooler isn’t working! Maybe it’s not blowing air, or even worse–blowing hot air. If you are having issues with your swamp cooler system, you’ll want to call in someone with experience to fix it. At Thompson Heating and Air Conditioning, we offer 24/7 emergency HVAC services in Albuquerque, so we’re always available when you need us most! Here are a few of the signs you may notice when the time has come to have your swamp cooler serviced. 

Not Blowing Air

A clear sign that your swamp cooler isn’t working properly is if it isn’t blowing air. If this is the case, the motor might not be working, which means that the fan is broken. The fan is what pushes air into the cooler pads, playing a critical part in cooling your home. Swamp coolers have many other parts, and if any of them aren’t functioning properly, that meant it’s time to call an expert in swamp cooler repair!

Blowing Hot Air

If your swamp cooler is blowing warm or hot air into your house, it may be time to get it fixed. One thing swamp coolers need to function properly is a steady supply of water to allow the fans to blow hot outside air on the wet swamp cooler pads, causing the water to evaporate and cool the air. If there isn’t enough water on the pads, then hot air won’t be cooled off by the swamp cooler pads and will blow inside. If this is the case, it may be time to call Thompson Heating and Air Conditioning, for an experienced swamp cooler diagnosis and repair.
