Will it be cost-efficient for me to convert to AC in my Alta Monte home?

Our technicians at Bosque Heating, Cooling & Plumbing do a cost-per-square-foot analysis of your home so you can make a decision that makes financial sense for you. In most cases, with the energy-efficient technology available today, it is more cost-effective to have AC in Albuquerque than a swamp cooler.

Are there any health benefits to switching to refrigerated air?

Yes, there certainly are potential health benefits to a swamp cooler conversion. Swamp coolers, or evaporative coolers, use water evaporation to cool the air. If not properly maintained, you risk mold getting into the air and face other risks to indoor air quality over time. Switching to air conditioning potentially improves the air quality in your home, or at least removes the risk of mold.
