Benefits of Converting Your Home to Refrigerated Air
Getting rid of that dripping old swamp cooler and switching over to refrigerated air has a lot going for it. First of all, you will improve the quality of the air you are breathing. A refrigerated air system gives you more control over the temperature in your home, as the entire house is centrally cooled and controlled with the flip of a switch. Refrigerated air units also use less water and require less maintenance – no more of those sweaty days spent waiting for the swamp cooler to be repaired.
How Much Will a Refrigerated Air Conversion Cost?
Converting from a swamp cooler or duct system to centralized refrigerated air is almost always a smart move in terms of both comfort and cost. The actual price of the system will depend on several factors, including the size of your home, the existing ductwork in place, and the type of furnace you have.

Cooling Frequently Asked Questions
A single inlet swamp cooler uses a thick pad known as “12-inch media” as opposed to a conventional cooler which uses four smaller pads. The smaller pads of a conventional cooler are generally made out of aspen fibers and need to be changed yearly; sometimes even more if there is a lot of hard water. A single inlet cooler needs its pad changed after about 3 years of use and cools 3-5 degrees cooler than a conventional cooler.
The answer is simple: more parts go into a spring changeover. Usually, for a fall change over, the only thing that needs to be replaced is the filter on your heater. Sometimes cooler parts need to be replaced if they are broken or worn down.
Different conditions in the house determine how often the filter needs to be changed, such as pets, cigarette smoke, dust, etc. We recommend changing your filter at least once every 3 months.
If your A/C system is properly installed you should never have to add refrigerant. If your system is leaking refrigerant, it is important to get it repaired correctly. We can detect and repair leaks in your A/C system.
