Re: Sanyo Mini-Split AC
I have NO experience with these evap coolers, but, one advantage of a swamp cooler is its ability to bring in cool outside air at night. If the cooler is power only by solar, then this advantage is lost if there is no sun to run the cooler.
I've considered that at night one might be able to shut off the pump that supplies water to the pads, and just rely on the cool outside air to do the job.
YMMV and so on, Vic
