What is a Swamp Cooler and Why Don’t they Exist in Ohio?

In a dry heat state like Arizona, the air conditioning equipment is going to be very different from the type of cooling equipment you are used to here in Northeast Ohio.

What is a Swamp Cooler?

A swamp cooler, or an evaporative cooler, is a type of cooling device that uses humidity to cool the air in a home or business. The equipment for a swamp cooler is positioned on the top of the roof and sends cooler, more humid air into the building.

You’ve heard the saying, “It’s hot, but it’s a dry heat.” In Arizona, the temperature is over 100+ degrees regularly, but the relative humidity is very low, maybe five percent relative humidity. They can run their air across a water panel to humidify the air in their homes and bring down the temperature with a swamp cooler. 

In Ohio, we don’t need to add any humidity in our homes that often, so these swamp coolers are not the best solution for our climate.
