That’s where evaporative cooler service comes into play. Professionals in this field are equipped with the knowledge and tools necessary to diagnose and repair any issues that may arise with your cooler. Don’t let a broken or inefficient evaporative cooler ruin your summer. Contact Extrordinair today to ensure your cooler is running smoothly and effectively. With their expertise, you can enjoy a cool and comfortable home all season long.
The frequency of professional servicing for your evaporative cooler can vary depending on factors such as usage, local climate, and the manufacturer’s recommendations. However, a general guideline is to have your evaporative cooler professionally serviced at least once a year, preferably before the start of the cooling season. Here’s a breakdown of why annual professional servicing is important and what it typically involves:
Importance of Annual Professional Servicing
Efficiency: Over time, the water pads and other components of your evaporative cooler can become clogged with dirt, dust, and mineral deposits. This can hinder the unit’s efficiency and cooling performance.
Air Quality: A well-maintained evaporative cooler helps filter out allergens and pollutants, ensuring that the air it circulates remains clean and healthy.
Preventive Maintenance: Regular servicing can help identify and address minor issues before they escalate into major problems, saving you from more costly repairs down the line.
Energy Savings: An efficiently operating evaporative cooler consumes less energy, which can lead to lower utility bills.
What’s Involved in Professional Servicing
Cleaning and Inspection: A professional technician will clean the water pads, the water distribution system, and the entire unit. They will also inspect components like the fan, motor, pump, and belts for signs of wear and tear.
Water Treatment: If your water source has a high mineral content, mineral buildup can occur within the cooler. Technicians can clean or replace components affected by this buildup and recommend water treatment solutions.
Water Pump Check: The water pump ensures that the water pads remain moist. Technicians will check its functionality and adjust it if needed.
Ventilation and Duct Inspection: The ducts and ventilation system that distribute the cool air throughout your home will be checked for blockages or damage.
Motor and Belt Maintenance: The motor and belts will be lubricated and inspected to ensure proper operation.
Control and Thermostat Check: The controls and thermostat will be checked to ensure accurate temperature and settings.
Overall Performance Test: Once all components are cleaned and checked, the technician will test the unit’s overall performance to ensure it’s working optimally.
Remember, if you notice any issues with your evaporative cooler between professional servicing visits, such as reduced cooling efficiency, strange noises, or water leakage, you should address these problems promptly.
Keep in mind that if you live in an area with extremely high usage or particularly harsh water conditions, you might benefit from more frequent servicing.
Additionally, if you only use your evaporative cooler for part of the year (e.g., during the warmer months), it’s a good idea to have it serviced before you start using it again.
Overall, regular professional servicing of your evaporative cooler is essential to keep it running efficiently, maintain good indoor air quality, and extend the lifespan of the unit.
