Ah, the swamp cooler: a fixture in homes in our part of the country and virtually unheard of elsewhere. A swamp cooler wouldn’t work in some climates. Its name is a bit deceptive, as a damp swampy area would not be ideal for its installation. Rather, a swamp cooler is perfect for a dry, hot climate like we have in New Mexico.
But a swamp cooler isn’t perfect. Unfortunately, there are certain circumstances, even in our dry climate, in which a swamp cooler can struggle to work properly. Can you count on your cooling system to work when you need it most?
