Beat the Heat and Save Money with a Portable Evaporative Cooler: A Smart Alternative to AC

portable evaporative coolersIn recent months and years, inflation has made the cost of everything higher, leaving us all looking for ways to save some money. One thing nobody wants to sacrifice, whether at home or at work, is comfort. But, keeping your home or office cool and comfortable during the hot summer months can be challenging and EXPENSIVE. One alternative to costly AC that many people overlook is a portable evaporative cooler, also known as a swamp cooler.

Portable evaporative coolers are not ideal for every climate or application, but they are an excellent option for many and they cost far less to operate than AC. Swamp coolers are particularly well suited for dry climates with little humidity because they operate more efficiently and effectively. An air conditioning unit requires a lot of electricity to operate and maintain a cool temperature. In contrast, a portable evaporative cooler only requires electricity to run the fan and pump, which consumes far less power. In fact, according to the Department of Energy, swamp coolers use about 75% less electricity than AC and only use a fairly limited amount of water to run. That is not only good for the environment, it means big savings on your energy bills each month.

And, when you need additional cooling, portable evaporative coolers are much easier and more cost-effective than installing new or additional AC cooling areas. That is because it requires a complex installation process, ductwork, electrical wiring, and more to install AC. A portable evaporative cooler is ready to plug in and use immediately without the costly and time-consuming installation process involved with an AC unit. And, portable evaporative coolers are versatile tools that allow you to spot-cool specific rooms or areas so that you don’t waste money using your AC cooling areas that are not in use. Although they may not be an ideal option to use as your only means of cooling an entire office or home with multiple rooms, they are a great option to strategically use in partnership with AC or when you have specific spot cooling needs.
