Flower , in the west , the air is so dry that you can get a nosebleed pretty easy . The air conditioner of choice is a swamp cooler , or another name is evaporator cooler. It's a metal frame box with pads on three sides that water is pumped up and drains down into the pads and a fan inside blows the air out , bringing air in through the wet pads and blowing it out . They sit in a window but I have mine just setting on the porch to keep the dogs and me cool .The water is delivered in a plastic hose like for a fridg and a float in the bottom of the box that cuts the water off and on when enough is used out of the bottom . If I could load pictures , I'd post one .
