I’ve thought about that and should get a chance to see if it works at all this weekend. If it goes the way I think, it’s back to the drawing board with an a/c unit. I like the idea of dual cooling though, this unit costs a lot less to run than an a/c with the exception of monsoon season, the climate is perfect for an evaporative cooler.
There is a website called

that gives good forecasts for humidity and dewpoint for the area right at your address. It has been very accurate for us. If you click on the plus sign at the right of a date, then on the "more details" button, it gives a very thorough forecast including humidity and dewpoint with a slider for time of day. Great little website.
