Why does the desert cooler not work in the rainy season?

The desert (swamp) cooler depends upon evaporation of water for cooling. During the rainy season the air is already pretty much saturated with water vapor so little water evaporates from the cooler and they become inefficient. They are most efficient when the relative humidity is below 20%.


What is more comfortable air-conditioning or swamp cooler?

Swamp coolers only work well in areas with low humidities, such as the desert. They are only capable of lowering the temperature by about 20 degrees if the humidity is quite low. An air conditioner would be much cooler.


What are the cooling methods used for cooling an alternator?

Air cooling ,hydrogen gas cooling ,water cooling


Could a portable swamp cooler be be made to work better on high humidity days by using it concurrently with a room dehumidifier?

Yes, in theory, but impractical in execution. A swamp cooler normally pulls in outside air to treat, not inside air. If they are set up to recirculate inside air, they will over humidify the air, and cause sweating problems. A dehumidifier will be adding heat from the compressor into the space while it does its' job, while you then have three motors running (dehumidifier, pump, fan). For that running price, I think you could air condition your space. Those energy use calculations can be run, and you could determine it for sure. Find an engineering student to help you; it sounds like an interesting set of questions.

How does a swamp cooler cool air?

Swamp coolers, is a term that refers to a cooling tower composed of a device that moves air through a medium where water passes over. These swamp coolers work well to add moisture to normally dry air. This type of cooling system are usually found in very dry climates and cost very little to operate compared to air conditioners.


Why does your swamp cooler blow slow air?

Its not the air thats slow its you


How AC is better than desert cooler?

On humid days, such as during the rainy season, swamp (desert) coolers are not very efficient at cooling the air. Air conditioners are not affected by high humidity.


Does air flow create cooling?

Yes, as long as the air has a place to flow to. If you use evaporative (swamp) cooling you are creating a positive pressure inside a building, if that pressure has an outlet like windows slightly cracked, the cooler air moves farea of entry, to the area of exit.


What temperature is swamp cooler air?

It is a function of the "dew point" of the air at any given moment. If relative humidity is high, the dew point will also be high and the swamp cooler air will be relatively warm. If relative humidity is low, the dew point will also be low and the swamp cooler air will be relatively cold. A swamp cooler in Phx AZ will put out air about 30 degrees less than the outside air, and works more efficiently when the humidity outside is very low.


What is the formula for calculating cooling efficiency?

Can you run a swamp cooler for the entire house and an portable air conditioner in the bedroom simultaneously?

Sure. Just shut the betroom door and turn the swamp cooler air vent off. Start up the A/C and enjoy cool dry air.


What is a swamp cooler?

a device that cools air through the evaporation of water.Evaporative cooling differs from typical air conditioning systems which use vapor-compression or absorption refrigeration cycles.They are not as efficient as real ac's. They use air blown across water to cool vs refrigerant. They work but much less cooling power.


What are some of the advantages of water cooling?

Water cooling keeps your system cooler if you are constantly overclocking it. It does it far better than air cooling. However, the price for water cooling is higher than air cooling.

How do you keep cool without air conditioning in a house?

Swamp cooler, fans, ceiling fans.
