The hot temperatures of an El Paso summer are getting few and far between as the cold season in the desert begins. The swamp cooler finds itself being used less and less as you make other preparations to enjoy the season. Pumpkin patches, Halloween costumes, and hot lattes may be the staples of the season, but homeowners all around the city have to think about preparing their swamp coolers for the winter. At Diaz Services, we have some tips to make sure your swamp cooler is ready to keep you cool when the hot weather starts rolling in again.


Winter Swamp Cooler Essentials


Prepping your swamp cooler for winter is crucial to ensure it’s lifespan and overall efficiency. It not only will help you prevent your lines from freezing, but also keep away mold and mildew that can form in pooled water.


Must Do #1- Disconnect the Water Lines

Your swamp cooler relies on your water line to keep your home cool during the summer. As the weather chills, the first important thing to remember is that you have to disconnect that line from your unit. Shut off the main valve in your unit, disconnect the line, and make sure both the valve and the line have been emptied of all water. If you leave the water in there, it will end up cracking and breaking the valve and/or line.


Must Do #2- Drain the Water from Every Part of the Unit

We can’t emphasize how much water is the enemy to your swamp cooler during the winter. As essential as it is for the system to work during the summer, during the month’s it’s just idling around, water is the main enemy. Leaving water in any part of the proper unit not only puts it in danger of freezing and breaking, but sitting water is a haven for all sorts of mold and mildew. This can be as damaging to your unit as a freeze.


Must Do #3- Prepare it For Next Year

After you’ve drained the water, disconnected the lines, and made sure your swamp cooler is as dry as the El Paso desert, it is a good idea to give it a good scrub down to get rid of all the dust and dirt it accumulated during the spring and summer. In addition, it’s a good idea to cover it up with a tarp or special cover to give it that extra protection during the period of hibernation.
