True, but it's not always that humid. What counts is the energy savings
over the whole season. It would be very easy to use evap coolibng in
front of the condenser or traditional A/C. But A/C technology is still
largely in the stone age.
I really like evap cooling but have a major gripe with the poor quality
of much of that stuff. The motor in our Champion/Essick cooler did a
spectacular smoke-out into (!) the house last year. Bought a new motor
and now that one is staring to show signs of failure. It hasn't even run
They had bigger better ones back then too. Cannot remember what they
were called, but the name was from the sound they made. Big wet
blankets flapped in the breeze.
I saw my first ceiling fans in Zambia in 1973. Not many in homes, but
common in public assembly areas
We just did the I80 drive from SF to Truckee. It was about 60F in SF
(warm!) and hit 102 from Sacramento to Auburn. It's 70F, 20% RH here
now, good beer weather. The gradient up the slope is usually about 1
deg F per 300 feet of altitude, but today it was about twice that.
I took it to mean that it was so dry sweat evaporates so fast there is
no sign of them perspiring.
You can carry in VT, too, but just watch the people sweat when it gets
to 85F. ...or the welfare or trust fund check is late.
What brand of fan did you buy that it does not reverse?
That is silly.
And if you installed it, why would you install a fan that is so
sub-par? There cannot be that great a savings between them, even if
such fans enjoy a market. Maybe I never looked for them, but an air
circulator fan (ceiling fan)always has a bi-directional motor.
And if it came with the house, I would be looking to kick a
contractor's ass, especially in *that* town. I didn't think anything up
there was done 'piss poor'.
Or maybe you never actually inspected the fan itself.
Absorption usually means a soaking-in and re-radiation of energy and
thermal mass gets "stored", so it remains after the source dissipates..
Reflection is better, but your building cannot be an "absorber". It
too must also reflect.
I do not think anyone could present a case that differs with these
basic physical precepts.

Since we're a free nation in the USA, I'm only
slightly surprised we don't have an Executive
Order, and a department of about a million heavily
armed DHS or DCF (Department of Ceiling Fans) guys
in Humvees, inspecting for compliance. It's the
Obama Chicago Thug way.
Interesting, but it seems that you too have forgotten to consider the
dark matter. Or maybe that was referenced in the nat geo pic...
We really do not know just how insignificant we are.
That is what religion is. Our attempt at making OURSELVES look more
important in the grand scheme of things, since someone took the time to
create us and even watch over us. It isn't about faith to an unprovable
entity. It is about exalting US as what that entity has taken time out
of his life to fuss over.
Maybe "God" is those huge dark matter strings interconnecting between
galaxies and far reaches of our existence.
We are but one small node on a very huge string.

No. Only Muslim Extremist ceiling fan blow up.
Intelligent, civil Muslims are able to blow their fans down or up, and
are like you or me.
The really hard part is precise dissemination.
It was easy to tell this guy had his ceiling fan set correctly, and
that he reached said ceiling...
