How Convair Compares to Standard Swamp Coolers:
Convair coolers are compatible with Chillcel® pads – These pads are specifically designed to keep your home cooler. They also come with a five-year warranty. No more replacing your swamp cooler pads every year!
Convair coolers are lightweight and non-corroding – Standard swamp coolers are heavy and corrode/rust easily because they are made of metal. Convair is made of UV-stabilized structural polymer materials called Permatuf™. In layman’s terms, it means your cooler cabinet will never rust or corrode. This prevents damage and limits the maintenance needed. Because of this special material, your Convair cooler cabinet comes with a 10-year warranty.
Convair coolers are compatible with your existing controls – Convair connects directly to your existing swamp cooler controls. If you have a swamp cooler thermostat, your Convair cooler is compatible with it. The only exception is low voltage thermostats.
Convair coolers can only be installed in downdraft systems – If you have an existing standard swamp cooler that is a down draft which is usually located on the roof of your home you can upgrade to a Convair cooler. Unfortunately, Convair coolers cannot be installed in homes with a side draft system.
Convair is still an excellent choice over a standard swamp cooler for two main reasons:
- Chillcel pads used in Convair coolers allow for cooler temperatures and don’t need to be replaced as often as standard swamp cooler pads.
- Convair swamp coolers use Tornado Water Pump® technology and are more efficiently designed than standard swamp coolers.
How Convair Compares to Breezair Swamp Coolers:
Convair is similar to Breezair in that they both come from the same manufacturer and use Chillcel® pads. There main differences are:
- Breezair has a variable-speed motor while Convair has one or two speeds depending on the size of your home.
- Breezair comes with water-sensing controls while Convair does not.
How Convair Compares to Refrigerated Air:
Convair is a better version of swamp cooler, but it is still a swamp cooler. Refrigerated air conditioning provides a consistent level of comfort, no matter what the weather is outside. Convair, just like all other swamp coolers, is subject to the effects of humidity and ambience in the air. Although it cools better than a standard swamp cooler, Convair is not refrigerated air.
