That’s why swamp coolers only work in drier desert temperatures, although you could always try using a single at the risk of creating too much indoor humidity
I was visiting our cousins out west Last year as well as stayed with them in their condo in the desert. This was the first time in our life that I have ever experienced rapidly increasing temperatures over 105 degrees. It felt appreciate standing inside an oven when I stepped into full sun, which instantaneously made me seek the shade. My cousins wanted me to play with them outside that day as well as I have never sweated so much in our life. When all of us got inside, I was surprised at how humid it felt compared to the outdoor air. Our air conditionings back at lake condo have the opposite effect, where they dry out indoor air while they cool. I l earned that many 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 appreciate the south where summer time weather is accompanied by moisture levels over 70%. That’s why swamp coolers only work in drier desert temperatures, although you could always try using a single at the risk of creating too much indoor humidity. And as many 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 air conditioning, even if I lived in the desert.
