Signs you need a new swamp cooler
You should consider replacing your swamp cooler if:
- It is more than 12 years old. A standard swamp cooler lasts on average between 10 – 12 years. If your swamp cooler is older than 12 years, it most likely needs to be replaced.
- It is corroded and rusty. Water and metal are not a great combination. If your standard swamp cooler is rusted and has holes from corrosion, it is tie to replace it.
- It has severe hard water scaling. If your swamp cooler is completely encrusted with the scaly white build-up that comes from hard water, it may be time to replace it. Sometimes, this can be cleaned off, but if it hasn’t been thoroughly cleaned at least once a year, it may be too late.
- It doesn’t keep you comfortable. If your swamp cooler just isn’t cutting it anymore, it may be time to replace or upgrade it.

Customer story in AlbuquerqueTLC Replaces Rusty Old Swamp Cooler
Customer called TLC to come out to look at his mother’s old rusted out swamp cooler. Riley came out to give out an estimate and options for replacing the cooler. Customer decided instead of just replacing the cooler with the same standard cooler to upgrade to a Breezair®.
THE CUSTOMER'S TESTIMONIAL
TLC Rep. Riley O’Neal came out and took extra time to measure the space needed to replace my mother’s rusted out swamp cooler. We could have gone with a similar metal swamp cooler but decided to replace with a Breezair which has a polymer housing and is three times more efficient. TLC techs. Brian and Derrick took a little more time than estimated in the replacement and installation and did a fantastic, professional job. I have no complaints and plan to call TLC in the future for a plumbing problem as well as an electrical box upgrade. Also, Office Rep. Cheryl sent me the necessary documentation needed to submit for a $300.00 PNM rebate. TLC is top notch…excellent.
