What exactly is a window-mounted swamp cooler? We’ve all heard of air conditioners and area fans. They’ve been around for ages, providing cooling needs at the height of summer. A swamp cooler, also known as an evaporative cooler, air cooler, or desert cooler, employs the use of evaporated water to cool the air.
A swamp cooler uses a process of forcing warm, dry air into the cooler. The air evaporates the cool water, resulting in cooler humid air at the other end. In some dry areas, so much humidity is added that it feels like a cool swamp.
A window-mounted swamp cooler works very much in the same way as mixing a hot glass of water with a cold glass of water. The result is cooler water between the two temperatures.
