Seasonal Conversion from Evaporative Cooling to Heating in Albuquerque, NM
When the weather starts to cool down in the fall, you want to switch from cold air to heat to keep your home comfortable. If you use an evaporative cooler (a swamp cooler) in the summer, you’ll need to winterize it so it doesn’t break from the cold weather.
Similarly, when the weather starts to warm up again in the spring, you’ll want your evaporative cooler ready to roll to keep your home at a good temperature.
These switches can be tricky, and you want to make sure that your heating and cooling appliances are in good condition after a few months of disuse. When you’re ready to switch, call Rocketman Plumbing. We will come out to your home and inspect your evaporative cooler to ensure it is properly maintained and will be protected during the winter. And in the spring, we will inspect your evaporative cooler to ensure it is not damaged or dirty so you can start using it safely as soon as the weather gets hot outside.
Call us at (505) 243-1227 to schedule your seasonal conversion today.
Let Our Technicians Handle Your Air Conversion
While you can DIY some of your plumbing and HVAC maintenance, we recommend that you call us for your seasonal air conversion instead of doing it yourself. This is because we have the experience and skills to handle the conversion quickly and safely so that you and your family can relax.
Some things that can happen with an evaporative cooler that is not converted properly include:
- Your swamp cooler can rust over the winter due to buildup of mineral and dirt deposits. We prevent this by changing your cooler pads for clean ones, ensuring there is no buildup before your swamp cooler goes into storage. Then we will make sure the cooler is properly covered to prevent it from getting damaged by dust and dirt over the winter.
- It’s important to thoroughly drain the water lines of your swamp cooler before storing it for the winter. If the lines aren’t drained fully, the water in the pipes can freeze. This can crack and damage your water lines, not just on your evaporative cooler, but in your home. We know exactly how to empty these lines to ensure this doesn’t happen.
- Some swamp coolers are connected to the same air ducts as your home’s heater. If the conversion isn’t done properly, the cold air will get inside your home and cause your heater to work overtime. This can raise your bill each month, and it also runs the risk of burning out your heater. We take care to properly change your air ducts from cooling to heating so that these problems don’t happen.
Similar issues can happen when you try to convert from using your heater in the winter months to using your evaporative cooler again in the summer. We offer these conversion services so that you don’t have to worry about keeping your home comfortable. We’ll get the job done for you quickly and professionally so that you and your family can focus on doing what you love.
Another great reason to call us for your conversion is that we will inspect your swamp cooler and heater to make sure they are safe to use. And if we notice something that needs to be fixed, such as a swamp cooler repair, we will take care of that for you right away.
