My Furnace has maintenance issues that I address every year prior to winter, but this year totally slipped my mind. I called my usual heating company but they couldn’t come out so they actually recommended Polar Bear company because of their reputation so I called and their professional prompt service had my furnace fixed in no time and we were back up and running. Dylan was awesome and kept in contact with me for every step and he was a pleasure to deal with. Put these guys in my phone for any future heating issues and will be recommending them to friends and family!

Dylan came and helped get our heat working again! It was a simple issue and they were able to fix at a fair price. He even wore shoe covers since we don't wear shoes in our house. He took the time to explain to me in detail, what was going on and tip for keeping it from happening in the future. I called John the night before like 9p and he answered!! and he confirmed if wanted service then or could wait till morning..and upon our request they came out first thing in the morning. Professional. Polite. Being a Female home by myself i didn't feel worried or uncomfortable at any time!!

How Does a Swamp Cooler Work?

Swamp coolers lower indoor temperatures using an intricate system of mechanisms that includes a fan, water tank and internal motor. The motor of the swamp cooler passes dry air through a wet filter pad. The pad cools the temperature of the air, which is then circulated throughout your space. 

Types of Evaporative Coolers

The friendly team at Polar Bear Mechanical will work with you and your space to come up with the perfect cooling system product and installation plan. Whether you want a window-mounted swamp cooler, or are more interested in having a cooler installed on the roof, we’ll take care of all of your swamp cooler needs! Swamp coolers differ by the location they reside in and the types of pads they use.

Portable Swamp Cooler

These coolers are ideal for smaller spaces and work best in rooms up to 300 sq. ft. They are also usually lightweight and fairly easy to move around from room to room.

Down Discharge Cooler

As the name suggests, this type of cooler is installed on the roof, and pushes cooled air downward into the desired structure.

Window Swamp Cooler

A window-mounted swamp cooler is used for one room, such as the garage. So, if you’re interested in dedicating a cooler system to cool the air in one room of your home, then a window swamp cooler is perfect for you! Window swamp coolers are also called through-the-wall coolers. This is due to the fact that because of their specific installation requirements, when they are completely set up, part of the system is on one side of a wall while the other part resides externally on the opposite side.

Side Discharge Coolers

Side discharge coolers can be used as a cooling system for an entire house. They’re typically installed on the side of a building, where the cooled air is directed into the attic. If you prefer, the Polar Bear Mechanical team can also install the cooler on the roof and use a duct elbow to direct the cooled air through an opening in the roof.

What are the Pros of Installing an Evaporative Cooler?

The pads of the swamp cooler act as a filter. While air passes through, the filter removes harmful particles such as allergens and dust. If you have allergies and install a swamp cooler, you should notice a huge improvement in your allergies while you’re inside. This is a considerable benefit for commercial spaces and factories that may deal with materials that tenants and employees are somewhat allergic to.

Swamp coolers can use up to 75 percent less electricity than a traditional air conditioning system. If you use a swamp cooler independently, or in conjunction with an AC unit where you’re using the air conditioner less frequently, you should see a substantial reduction in your electricity bill.

This can be especially beneficial if you are running a business such as a furniture store. Installing a swamp cooler will help you maintain the quality of your goods.

During a time when residents are trying to incorporate more eco-friendly solutions into their daily life, swamp coolers are an awesome option! Because swamp coolers use less electricity to operate, the power plants emit a lesser amount of CO2 and other harmful chemicals into the atmosphere.
