The temperature rises a bit high, and you need an extra touch of fresh air. You don’t need a loud freezing AC or an ice-cold bath, but all you need is a chill breeze. If you are a happy owner of the swamp cooler, you have come up with a list of tips to make your cooler even colder.
7 Simple Tricks To Increase The Efficiency Of Your Evaporative Cooler
Use Your Cooler In Dry Conditions
Your evaporative air cooler will work better if you live in a dry climate as compared to a humid one. You need dry hot air to keep your swamp cooler cold.
Why? This is because evaporation is one of the most natural processes. You can experience it every day while sweating. When the wet skin cools down in dry air, your body also cools down. When the air is humid, there’s already much more moisture in the air for efficient evaporation.
You can use a dehumidifier along with the cooler to increase its efficiency in humid areas. Use the below map to know if using an evaporative cooler would be right for you.

One of the benefits of having a Durango 600 CFM air cooler is that you can place it anywhere and see what works best for you in terms of cooling. Stop positioning yourself in front of the air. Instead, position your cooler.
Don’t Use Cold Water In Your Swamp Cooler
The ideal temperature of high-efficiency evaporative coolers like Bonaire’s is slightly warm or room temperature. You don’t need to use ice-chilled water for improving the performance of your air cooler.
Contrary to air conditioners, swamp coolers work the best when the door and windows are open. They need fresh air and a water supply for better functioning. As the windows and doors are open, the moisture can escape the space. This provides better air circulation, avoids moisture build-up, and enables your cooler to be more efficient and colder.
