We have finally have a working swamp cooler. It's about darn time!
The heating and air guys came yesterday, hoisted it up onto the platform and did the duct work and plumbing. The electrician came this morning, pulled power and control wires and hooked it up. It's noisier than the one that was torn down last fall, but I don't care, I don't care, I don't care.
It's supposed to be 102 tomorrow, as long as I can keep relatively comfortable, I'm happy. And since the humidity right now is at 8% (!), it's working like a champ.
