Is there an ENERGY STAR label for evaporative coolers? Are they eligible for a tax credit? Follow

Evaporative coolers are not eligible for the ENERGY STAR label OR a tax credit.

Evaporative coolers (sometimes called swamp coolers) are less common than refrigerated air conditioners, but they are a practical alternative in very dry areas, such as the Southwest. They work by pulling fresh outside air through moist pads where the air is cooled by evaporation.

More information on Evaporative coolers from DOE.
