Evaporative Cooling Repairs

The Jim's Plumbing team is fully qualified and always ready for your evaporative cooler repairs. Our staff undertake regular training so they're always refreshed and up to date with the best practices.

Regular maintenance helps your ducted evaporative air conditioning live a long and healthy life. A yearly service is a perfect way to prevent costly issues popping up in the future.

But we do understand that things go wrong. Air conditioning repairs are a given. That's why Jim's always aims for a proactive approach when it comes to our work.

A pre-summer service will help us catch any repairs that need to be done before they create a headache and leave you with no cooling in the heat.

You want to be ready for a heatwave because it can be difficult to get a good night’s sleep and an air conditioner technician.

With proper maintenance and servicing, benefits include:

  • Extending the life of your cooler
  • An energy efficient system saving on energy and water bills
  • Prevent major repair or replacement by making minor repairs early
  • Maintaining fresh air quality

Evaporative coolers deserve love, and when repairs are needed, call Jim's Plumbing.

How Does Evaporative Cooling Work

Evaporative cooling systems hold a very unique operational design. They work by drawing hot and dry outside air in from a rooftop mounted unit. The air then passes through wet pads that act to cool the hot air, before it is circulated through the home's ducted vents.

Evaporative cooling systems can be a great unit for most households and climates. However, they aren't usually recommended for homes in high humidity areas, as humid air does not evaporative as effectively as dry air. Your pads are also likely to develop mould at a fast rate, which is not nice.

It's important to leave doors and windows open in your house whenever your evaporative cooler is in use. This is so internal warm air can exit out of an open window, and cool air circulates instead.

This maintains a cool temperature and fresh airflow.

Expert Evaporative Cooling Installation

If your existing air conditioning needs to be replaced or you're just looking to change to an energy efficient unit, Jim's Plumbing are ducted evaporative installation experts.

We will provide a detailed inspection, selecting the perfect place for your external evaporator unit. Other important installation talking points include:

  • Where do you want the internal vents?
  • How many rooms are you cooling?
  • What brand or model of cooler do you want?

Also consider whether you want ducted heating, too. Evaporative coolers use a high powered fan and their ducts are often uniquely sized. Therefore, they are not compatible with gas ducted heating so you would likely want an alternative reverse cycle system.

If you are unsure about what exactly you do want, but know you're after expert air conditioning installation, call Jim's today.

We've been on many roofs and have the experience you need to assess what's best for your home and own unique requirements.

Ducted Evaporative Cooling Price

Evaporative cooling systems come at an affordable price and are often relatively cheap to install - depending on individual circumstances. They also have lower running costs thanks to the simple movement of air and use of cooling pads.

Evaporative coolers are also eco-friendly, and very easy to maintain.

Jim's Plumbing ensures you receive the best price with a range of $0 deposit interest free payment plans** available on all heating and cooling jobs.

You can see timely repairs or installation of an evaporative system while relaxing with weekly and fortnightly repayment options to choose from. It will all suit your circumstances and you don't have to delay important work!

Evaporative Cooling Service Areas

We service all metropolitan areas of Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Geelong, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

Evaporative Cooling Adelaide

One of the most popular air conditioning systems in Adelaide is evaporative cooling. Like a refreshing sea breeze, it makes you feel like you're chilling by the beach in Glenelg or Aldinga, even if you're in Gawler or Mitcham!

Evaporative air conditioning is a cost effective and simple way to keep your home cool, even on the driest of Adelaide days. The summer heat will be a thing of the past as you work in the home office, cook up a storm in the kitchen or entertain friends in the lounge.

Your electricity bills will remain low thanks to the increased energy efficiency and natural cooling effects. Your skin will also thank you! Evaporative cooling produces smooth air which is not dried out, and as a result, your skin and eyes are never dry.

Likewise, asthma sufferers and anyone who is sensitive to airborne allergens will breathe easy thanks to the filtered air. That makes even the toughest summer day a breeze.

So whether you need your evaporative cooler in Adelaide serviced, or would like to have a brand new unit installed, call Jim's Plumbing.

Evaporative Cooling Melbourne

Get in the summer spirit with a refreshed evaporative cooler! From Melbourne to Geelong, the Mornington Peninsula and even Bendigo, it's the perfect way to stay cool.

Ducted evaporative cooling is a seamless way to take warm, dry air, and produce a crisp, fresh cool breeze throughout the home. Ductwork and vents ensure every room can be cooled specifically so everyone is happy no matter the temperature outside.

The running costs are considerably cheaper than many refrigerated ducted systems, while the carbon emissions are far, far lower. For any energy conscious homeowner, that is a major benefit.

Meanwhile, Jim's Plumbing is here to lend a hand for all jobs of all sizes. Our technicians can help with any winter shutdown or summer startup, plus all-season servicing. We'll provide a thorough service to get your home's temperature under control.

Or, perhaps you're after a brand new evaporative air conditioner installation in Melbourne. Jim's can do that too! We have access to all the major brand names, such as Breezair, Braemar and Coolair.

If you have a unit in mind we can help source it, before providing quick and easy installation. Trust us, thanks to Jim's Plumbing you'll have comfortable air conditioning in Melbourne.

Evaporative Cooling Perth

Cooling your home with evaporative air conditioning in Perth could cost you just one-tenth of what ducted air conditioning costs! That's right, the savings are incredible.

Think of it like the Fremantle doctor, but in your home (and in a nice refreshing way). Evaporative cooling is a natural way to cool your house without breaking the bank or drying out the air. Both you and your plants will be thankful!

Jim's Plumbing knows how to look after it, too. We provide duct cleaning and evaporative cooling services for customers across Perth. Our routine service includes filter pad replacement and a full motor clean which will take your evap from bland to glam.

You won't have to wait long for any service, either, with our fast and reliable 1 hour* attendance. It's a part of our promise for same day service and fast resolutions for all heating and cooling needs.

And even if you call us on a public holiday you can still expect the same great service! We never charge additional fees for after hours attendance, and always have the same great rates - every day of the year. No exception.

That's a great way to look after your Perth cooling.

Evaporative Cooling Brisbane

For all of your Brisbane air conditioning needs, come to Jim's Plumbing. We understand that your humid climate throws up some unique challenges, but if you are someone with evaporative cooling, contact us.

Brilliant job, cleaned up after

We had two old toilets removed and two new ones installed. I loved that the two old toilets and new packaging were all removed so we didn't have to hire a skip bin!
