I got this house about a year ago and in the garage someone had installed a swamp cooler. Now it was not as hot last year however it would blow hot air. Since it wasn't as hot as it is this year, I decided to wait and I would look at it over the winter and clean it up and replace all the part. Well I did, almost new everything...still same problem, warm to hot air. Now I live in a very dry climate.
I have never seen one installed in the garage before though. Who ever did this took some time to install it. They piped duct work through out the house to get the air to different parts of the house and there are vent in the ceiling where the air is dumped out. It is a nice system if it worked...
Also they installed a nice sized fan in my hallway by my back bedrooms, which is on the opposite side of the house from where the swamp cooler is, which pulls the air up through to the attic. It pulls hard enough that it will close my doors to my bedroom.
Should I be using this in conjunction with my swamp cooler? Now I just got the fan working as someone had disconnected it. I hooked it up thinking that it may help pull the air through the house. I have ran the swamp cooler with the fan running and with the fan off and get the same results...HOT AIR.
Again who ever installed all of this seemed to know what they were doing. It is not just thrown together...all of it seems to look like whoever put in the swamp cooler and fan were in the construction trade maybe even did this for a living or they hired someone to install it.
If anyone has any ideas I would be all ears. I have spent a lot of time Googling to really get the same answers.
Thanks for your time
