What Are the Key Benefits of an Evaporative Cooling Service?

A regular Evaporative Cooler service has many benefits, ranging from preventing excessive dust build-up that can cause the fan to burn out through to reducing the need for repairs.

Other benefits include:

  • Enhances efficiency
  • Healthier air quality
  • Avoids breakdowns
  • Lowers electricity bills
  • Prolongs equipment lifespan
  • Provides consistent cool air
  • More reliable operation

Evaporative Coolers are known for improving the indoor air substantially, as they use fresh, filtered outside air to lower the temperature inside. But without a regular service, air quality can deteriorate fast due to the build-up of fungus, sediments and debris inside the system. This means an evap cooling service is not only important for the unit, but for your health as well.

Evaporative Cooler Service FAQ's

The general recommendation is to have your evaporative cooling system serviced at least once a year for optimal performance and an extended lifespan.

Although having your Evaporative Cooler checked once a year can ensure maximum efficiency, you need to understand that determining the service frequency can depend on the model and brand.

Older models may require more frequent servicing, and there are also other factors such as quality of water and usage of the unit that may affect this. Homeowners can conduct basic cleaning, but a professional should always be called to carry out a thorough service.

A periodic Evaporative Cooling system service can help prevent damage to essential components and detect normal wear and tear. There are some signs that indicate your cooler requires immediate servicing, such as accumulation of dirt and debris inside the cooling system. This can disrupt airflow and clog up the unit.

Water stagnation inside the unit can cause a musty odour. One sign that you cannot ignore is corrosion inside the unit.

Another sign is improper cycling that can cause mildew and mould growth inside the unit.

At ComfyHome, we have years of experience servicing all major Evaporative Cooling brands. Our expert technicians are knowledgeable and specialise in servicing all reputable brands in Melbourne, such as Brivis, Breamer, Breezair, Coolair, Bonaire and CoolBreeze. No matter the brand you have, we’re more than capable of servicing it.

Replacing Evaporative Cooling filter pads helps to prevent dust accumulation and enhance cooling efficiency. As there are different brands of Evaporative Cooler pads available, they are each made of different materials and have different requirements.

For example, if your evaporative cooler has Chilcel pads that look like a honeycomb, they should be changed every 7 to 8 years. However, the frequency of filter pad replacement can also depend on the brand, excessive wear and tear, and quality of water supply.
