Blog: Graeme RobertsCheapskate air-con

Graeme Roberts | 5 December 2012

Ever heard of a swamp cooler? Me neither, until today.

Turns out it's a poor man's car air conditioner from back in the day. Mount to window, fill with ice, let 'er rip.

Looks to me like a variation of the home 'air cooler' which I have known people to buy thinking they were actually getting a portable 'air conditioner'. That requires proper refrigeration, which is how Rolls-Royce used to describe its a/c, also back in the day.
