When we talk air conditioning, the first images that come to mind are most likely central air conditioners and ductless mini-split systems (you know, the rectangular ones that hang up on the walls). These are both refrigerant-based systems, and they’re well-known for good reason—they’re versatile and reliable.
But these aren’t the only types of air conditioners around. A lesser known but surprisingly effective system is the evaporative cooler, also known as the swamp cooler. However, it’s not for everyone. In this post, we’ll explain what makes a swamp cooler work for some and not for others.

For it to run efficiently—not too powerfully and not too weak—the unit has to be perfectly sized according to a complex load calculation along with many other factors.
But who has time for that? The easiest thing would be to slap an AC unit in each room, run some refrigerant tubes to an outdoor unit, and call it a day.
Okay, that’s simplifying the process just a bit. But that’s basically what a ductless mini-split system is. They’re a foolproof, to-the-point, no-nonsense kind of AC system that will easily relieve you of the summer heat.
