If you already own an air cooler, no one needs to tell you how great they are. These simple machines are the perfect solution for temperature issues in dry climates.
They do not only lower the temperature of your home or commercial space but also help to improve the humidity.
Air coolers produce fresher air, delivering cool and healthy air for everyone in a space where it is being used.
Among the many benefits of air coolers, affordability and cost-effectiveness are the ones that appeal to most people.
Considering that cooling and heating are costly in most places, this is not surprising.
The use of air conditioners, for instance, always means that families and businesses will pay a lot more for electricity during the summer. With air coolers, however, the cost of cooling is significantly reduced.
For individuals that own air coolers already, the points discussed above are known realities.
If you are yet to install an air cooler in your home or commercial space, it is understandable that you will still be thinking about the possibility of all you have heard about the machines being true.
It is likely, for instance, that you have heard that an air cooler can actually pay for itself. How true is this?
Well, let’s start by stating clearly that an air cooler can actually pay for itself when you use it the right way.
This is in comparison to the other cooling solution you may consider installing in your home – the air conditioner.
But how exactly can an air cooler pay for itself?
It starts from the amount you will save when you choose to buy an air cooler and more that you will save in electricity bill.
We will break it down for you here so that you understand better:
Air coolers are generally less expensive than air conditioners. The unit cost of an air cooler is usually lower than the unit cost of an air conditioner of similar capacity.
This means that from the purchase price, you will save some money by buying an air cooler instead of an air conditioner.
The money you will save by choosing this option must be considered as part of your savings from home/commercial space cooling.
The installation process of an air cooler is a lot different from the installation process of an air conditioner.
It is much easier to install an air cooler than an air conditioner and the costs reflect this fact.
When you hire the right professionals to install your air cooling system, the process can be completed in time and the price will be a lot cheaper than what you will pay if you hire HVAC professionals to install an air conditioner system.
There are even some air cooler units you can install on your own following simple instructions from the manufacturers even if you do not have any real technical knowledge.
Most portable air coolers, for instance, do not require any real installation.
When you are able to install your air cooler system on your own or pay very little to get it done by the experts, the machine is already paying for itself as it is so much you can save.
There are also some suppliers that offer evaporative cooler installation rebates. Such rebate can be quite significant when you choose to install a top-of-the-line evaporative cooler.
Such huge rebates will meaningfully reduce the upfront cost of installing your swamp cooler and the money saved is part of how the machine is paying for itself.
This is the most significant way an air cooler can pay for itself. The cost of cooling is a major problem for most households.
This is also the case for many businesses that are reliant on air conditioners for air cooling. It is a known fact that air conditioners consume a lot of electricity.
This is why electricity bill for most households and businesses skyrocket during the hottest times of the year.
Air coolers, however, are known to consume less electricity than air conditioners.
A typical air cooler unit can consume just about 15 – 25% of what a standard air conditioner unit will consume to achieve the same level of cooling.
Individuals that are aware of this simple fact are using air coolers in places where the machines are effective (dry climates, especially).
In some instances, running an evaporative air cooler in your home instead of air conditioners can help you save more than 60% in electricity cost.
This easily adds up over the year to save you thousands. From this singular factor, a single air cooler can pay for itself in a matter of a few years.
This can be a little controversial for some obvious reasons. Over the years, evaporative air coolers have been known to be sources of headache for some homeowners.
They need to be regularly maintained and repaired when they develop faults. Many manufacturers have addressed the major issues that made older models of air coolers troublesome.
Most models on the market currently are sturdily built and will not cause breakdown and maintenance nightmares.
Once you take care of your air cooler, its cost of maintenance and repairs over the years will be minimal and this will contribute to the machine paying for itself.
When you invest in a well-built air cooler, it will serve you efficiently for years. There are some very strong and reliable models that can last for 20 years or more.
They can be a lot more expensive than the inferior ones but you wouldn’t have to replace them after a few years.
These strong air coolers can also outlast the average air conditioner. The amount you will save by this means will contribute immensely to the machine to pay for itself.
Considering all the factors discussed above, it can take between five to six years for an average air cooler to pay for itself.
It is important to note at this point that not all air coolers can be this economical. You will have to buy a top quality air cooler to enjoy the economic advantages.
It is also very important that you care for your air cooler. Proper maintenance is key to smooth operation and longevity of an air cooler.
