You might be wondering about operating cost. The new refrigerated air systems that we install in El Paso offer efficiencies that compare very closely to your current evaporative cooling system, and without the water usage!


Air conditioners do not require windows or doors to be open in order to operate, which means a safer and more controlled indoor environment. Lastly, for the seasons when heat is needed in the morning, but cooling is needed in the afternoon, switching from heating to cooling is automatic with air conditioning. No more dampers to contend with or freezing and leaking water lines.  Give the guys in the yellow booties a call today to convert to refrigerated air.

How much does it cost to convert to refrigerated air?

The first objection people sometimes have is: “It will cost too much money!” We are here to clarify and explain “What does it cost to convert to Refrigerated Air Conditioning?” The two main factors that can affect the cost to convert to A/C are the size of your home and the energy efficiency of the unit.

The square footage of your home will determine the size of unit needed to cool your home; these units are measured in tons (of air). For example, a 1,200 square foot home could use a 2-2.5 ton unit, while a 2,000 square foot home would typically need a 4 ton unit. Since the air handlers usually can’t cover more than about 2,500 square feet, homes larger than that require two units. Two story homes work best when there are two separate units to control the different level because of the rising heat between floors.

The cost for the various unit sizes may vary considerably, based on the SEER rating and the size of the unit. The SEER rating means Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and is best compared to Miles per Gallon on an automobile. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the unit will be.

When converting to refrigerated air conditioning, it is typical to need to replace both the indor and the outdoor units as this will now become the source of air flow for the air conditioning as well. Therefore is make sense to handle this replacement now rather than later when it will cost much more because replacing the unit with an A/C coil attached makes the project much more difficult than if it was replaced during the conversion. Also older units don’t have the capacity needed to handle refrigerated A/C.

Here in the El Paso, a 14 SEER unit is the Federal Department of Energy minimum SEER allowed to be installed; upgrading that to a 16, 17 or higher SEER unit will add cost to the AC equipment purchase, but will also save you money in energy cost during the unit’s lifetime.

Other factors that may influence the cost of an air conditioner conversion are your current electrical capabilities in the home as well as the ductwork in your home. Some homes converting from swamp cooler to refrigerated air will need an electrical panel upgrade to handle the new air conditioners energy consumption needs.

The first step in converting a swamp cooler to refrigerated air is an in-depth home evaluation by one of our comfort consultants to truly understand what it takes to correctly convert your home to refrigerated air conditioning.
