Even though Colorado has some of the most beautiful, snowy winters around, we still experience extremely high temperatures throughout the entire year. Even during winter, it’s extremely important to have a reliable cooling system. As swamp coolers have become increasingly more popular over the years, we thought it would be a good idea to educate you on the different types of swamp coolers available.

Swamp Cooler Options

Swamp coolers, also known as evaporative coolers, are one of the most popular cooling systems available. Different swamp coolers have different benefits, and depending on your unique needs, one type of swamp cooler may serve you better than another. When deciding which swamp cooler to add to your HVAC system, consider the following options:

  1. Portable Swamp Cooler
    • As the name suggests, portable swamp coolers are perfect for individuals who wish to move their cooler around from room to room. If you live in a smaller area and don’t need such a hefty air conditioner, then portable swamp coolers are a great option for you.
  2. Down Discharge Cooler
    • Down discharge coolers are one of the most popular options of evaporative coolers. This type of evaporative cooler has a unit that’s mounted on the roof, and blows chilled air down into the desired space. Although usually more expensive, this is a great, reliable option.
  3. Window Swamp Cooler
    • Window swamp coolers are a type of swamp cooler designed for cooling down one specific room. Also called through-the-wall coolers, this cooler utilizes a window-mounted system to help the space reach a desired temperature. This type of cooler is popular in certain rooms such as garages, gyms and pool rooms which may not be connected to central air..
  4. Side Discharge Cooler
    • Side discharge coolers are extremely powerful, and can be used to cool down an entire house. They’re usually installed on the side of a home or building, and chilled air is directed into the attic. Once in the attic, it’s then blown into the desired spaces using your air duct system.
