Swamp Cooler Having Problems? Signs You Need an Evaporative Cooler Repair
As a unique cooling solution great for the Albuquerque climate, evaporative coolers display some different signs when there is a problem. When humidity goes up outside (like when it’s raining), your evaporative cooler’s ability to cool your home goes down. Identifying these early on can ensure you get the necessary swamp cooler repair service in a timely manner. That will also help you to avoid bigger problems down the line.
Some signs that you need an evaporative cooler repair include:
- Water leaks. Since evaporative coolers use a lot of water, leaking is more common on these systems than with refrigerated air conditioners. Be sure to check around for dark patches along your walls and flooring regularly and watch out for mold and mildew growth. Evaporative coolers can also leak off the roof—so be on the lookout!
- Persistent mechanical noises. Loud noises from any cooling system will typically indicate a damaged or loose part, and your swamp cooler is no different! If you do hear strange noises, be sure to schedule a repair service quickly because damaged parts often lead to larger complications—and potentially even the need for a replacement.
- Whistling or humming sounds. Air flow is integral to swamp coolers, and if the flow is restricted or the air pressure fluctuates in your home, your cooling system may begin to make loud whistling sounds. First, ensure all windows in your home are open and, if they already are, go ahead and give us a call. However, make sure your windows are open the appropriate amount.
- Funky odors. Strange smells can indicate a lack of routine maintenance or clogs that have created stale water.
- Ineffective cooling. If your system has broken down or is failing to cool effectively, call us at (505) 225-3016 to schedule an evaporative cooler repair.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why does my evaporative cooler feel like it isn’t working?
There could be a number of reasons: there is something mechanically wrong with the cooler, there is not enough open windows or doors to allow the cool air to circulate, the ambient conditions outside are either too hot, or too humid, are the most common problems.
How much should I keep my windows open to allow sufficient airflow for my evaporative cooler to operate efficiently?
You should open windows in rooms that are warmer than others. To determine how much your windows should be open, perform the tissue test: open your windows, take a 2″x2″ square of tissue and lay it up against the screen in your window. If the tissue is plastered against the screen, your windows aren’t open enough. If the tissue falls off on its own, your windows are open too much. If the tissue stays against the screen, by is loose, it is probably just right. Sometimes it takes trial and error to dial it in just right.
