You might think that an industrial air conditioner is the right solution to your hot workspace, but you should consider a portable evaporative cooler, often referred to as a swamp cooler, instead.
While an industrial air conditioner can cool your workspace effectively, it comes with several problems. First, these industrial air conditioners can be expensive to install, costing potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars. Not only that, but industrial air conditioners use considerable energy. Your energy bill is already massive, do you need another heavy appliance sucking up the juice? The energy cost is even worse when you consider that much of it is going to cool space you don’t need to cool: all the high ceilings over your workers’ heads, where nobody works and there’s little to no harm in the rising heat. Industrial air conditioners are also expensive to maintain. Air conditioners have fans, pumps, condensers, coils, and refrigerants that need to be cleaned, repaired, and replaced.
In addition, maintenance is inexpensive and repairs, when necessary, can be done for the fraction of what it costs to repair an air conditioner. This will save your business a significant amount of money in ongoing maintenance costs over the lifetime of your evaporative cooler.
We know that many people worry an industrial swamp cooler might lead to corrosion of important metal components, but that’s not the case. All of the evaporation occurs within the media inside the cooler, preventing additional moisture from being introduced into your facility.
