Evaporative cooler pumps in dust

I bot a house in the desert. It has an evaporative "swamp" cooler. It seems to allow a draft in all the time and also blows in quite a bit of dust. Are these things really any good -- or does mine just need service?

You should not have dust. Your water pump is probably shot. The hoghair might need to be replaced or the whloe unit might need a good hosing down. As far as a draft all the time? That is what you want in an evaporative cooler ain't it?

Can you usen the sam air vent for heating and swamp cooler


Yes you can. I have that set-up in my house. The only problem is when moisture laden swamp cooled air goes past the heat exchanger. This could cause the exchanger to rust out, allowing carbon monoxide to come into the house when the heater is used. This can be avoidid by having a one way damper made by an HVAC shop, and installing it at the heater.

We have an older swamp cooler and need to have some windows in our home open to get best cooling. Does a mastercool need to have some windows open in our home to give max cooling?


The solution is to install "up ducts" These devices are easy to install and are fairly cheap. With a swamp cooler the best way to use them is to allow them to draft outside with the "up duct" you get the drafting to the outside but also get to remove attic heat too.

Frequent short cycles of the Mastercool swamp cooler


Short cycling can also occur in a thermally protected motor if it is overheating. If the other solution did not work, make sure the belt on the motor is not too tight or too loose. A handy person can check the amperage with an amp probe to make sure it is in limits. The adjust the pulley to put it into specs.

New Mastercool pads smell bad


The cellulose pads in a mastercool are glued together and usually the adhesive is what you smell. It may take a while for it to go away. Strange as it may seem, as the pads get more mineralization and you use it more the smell will go away. Do not use a cooler for your whole house without plenty of exhaust through a window or an updux. Coolers work best when there is plenty of freely moving air.

Evaporative cooler not getting water from water line


The pump is probably gone. the way it works is a float allows the water level to stay the same in the reservoir so check that. Water is pumped up to the hoghair and trickles down into it. A big old blower pulls the wet outside air into the room. We call that one a swamp cooler down here on the gulf. Go outside and spray some water on the unit to cool down the house till you can get the pump replaced.

Do not know how to work/maintain swamp cooler


Make sure you have water to the unit, the water pump is on and the fan is working. No water=no cooling.
