Swamp Coolers, Cooler Management, Dry Ice, Misting Systems, and just plain how to beat the heat.

According to this table, I might get some benefit from a FIGJAM, even if 5 degrees. Any thoughts?

It all depends on the humidity, dew point actually but close enough. If the conditions are to the left of the blue squares, it will do something. Now that something may not be worth it or be soo muggy it makes no difference. Out here in the SW I would run my home unit up to about 95'F/40%. Anything higher than that and things were too musty in the house.
2nd time better than the first. And the first was pretty Freakin' Great!

Evap coolers are not effective if the dew point is much over 50 degrees F.

And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
