3 Popular Evaporative Swamp Cooler Accessories 3 Popular Evaporative Swamp Cooler Accessories

An evaporative swamp cooler is a good alternative to traditional air conditioners in certain areas of the country. They are inexpensive and efficient to operate. Many people find that having the swamp cooler by itself is simply not enough. There are a few accessories that are popular for those who own a swamp cooler.


For evaporative coolers that are set up on a roof or affixed in a wall or window, having a cover can be beneficial. The cooler covers are designed to protect the cooler from the harsh elements during the off season. Most covers are made of a durable canvas material, and can be custom ordered for any size swamp cooler.

Wall Plate

For coolers that are meant to be a permanent fixture, a wall switch can be helpful. These can be installed to use in a similar fashion to a thermostat. This will allow you to adjust the settings without having to mess with the cooler itself. These aren't terribly difficult to install, but may require professional assistance for those not familiar with electrical wiring.

Wheel Bases

If an evaporative cooler is meant to be a temporary solution, having a wheel base can make moving and storage easy. Many cooler manufacturers will make wheel bases specific to their models. Others can be found with adjustable bases to allow for many sizes to be used with them.
