Now is the Time to Service Your Evaporative Cooler

The first, somewhat primitive air cooler was developed in Iran thousands of years ago. It was a crude system that possessed wind shafts that caught the wind and passed it through water on roofs as it blew it into homes or work areas. Today evaporative cooling has become a sophisticated way to save money and energy as well as effectively cooling the environment in homes, industrial plants, commercial kitchens, dry cleaners and laundries, loading docks, factories, warehouses, and more. This cooling works bests in arid climates, and it is now the time to service your evaporative cooler. KM Facility Services of Arizona are the go to people for such the task.

Maintenance Prevents Wicking Problems

Once called swamp coolers, these units were known for the algae odor that they would omit into the air. You can prevent that from happening to your home or workplace simply by maintaining your unit properly. If your unit is experiencing wicking, then you could have corrosion issues developing. Wicking is when water droplets are sucked through the airflow, permitting contact with the fan and leading to eventual corrosion. This can be prevented by proper maintenance and cleaning or changing the pad.

Solutions for Cooler Corrosion

KM Facility Services of AZ can also provide additional services if your unit is found to be rusted or containing a corroded pan. We not only clean them, but if needed, we use a product to reseal and prevent further deterioration. If the unit has been neglected for a long time, it may have scale build up, and we can remove that by sandblasting.

Now is the time to service your evaporative cooler, especially if you have neglected it. Once the pads are cleaned of pollen, dust, mildew and other minerals, your inside environment will improve, and you can enjoy fresh, clean air while extending the life of your unit for years to come.
