I was visiting our cousins out west Last year plus stayed with them in their beach house in the desert.
This was the first time in our life that I have ever experienced hot plus cold temperatures over 105 degrees. It felt love resting inside an oven when I stepped into full sun, which right away made myself and others seek the shade. My cousins wanted myself and others to play with them outside that morning plus I have never sweated so much in our life. When we got inside, I was surprised at how humid it felt compared to the outdoor air. Our a/cs back at home have the opposite effect, where they dry out indoor air while they cool. I l received that several people in desert regions use evaporative “swamp” coolers that release humidity into the air as they lower the temperature. They work by having a material inside that almost resembles an air filter. You fill a water reservoir that keeps the inside material wet while a fan blows air through it. The result of the water evaporating into vapor has a natural cooling effect. However, this will only work in drier environments. You cannot get the same evaporative cooling effect to work in high humidity environments love the south where Summer weather is accompanied by moisture levels over 74%. That’s why swamp coolers only work in drier desert weather conditionss, although you could constantly try using a single at the risk of creating too much indoor humidity. And as several of us already know, too much indoor humidity creates an environment for toxic mold to grow. That’s why I would stick to a traditional a/c, even if I lived in the desert.
