Yeah, that was my only concern... because lately, it has been unsually humid here in L.A., over 50%. I'm not sure if this swamp cooler is going to be doing more harm than good. I heard just buying bags of ice and putting them in a cooler behind a big box fan will do practically the same thing. That's ghetto style.
