Thick Media Swamp Coolers Still Get the Job Done in Denver

Last year I replaced my cheap swamp cooler with a better unit.

The old one did the job during heat waves only if I overcooled the house at night and shut it off during the hot part of the day.

The cost of the better coolers had prevented me from upgrading, but I snagged one for less than half price in October 2013: http://www.homedepot.com/p/MasterCool-5000CFM-120V-2-Speed-Down-Draft-Roof-Wall-8-in-Media-Evaporative-Cooler-for-1650-sq-ft-with-Motor-AD1C51/203398132

With the new 8" media cooler, I can just set a room temperature with the thermostat and forget about it.  For $20/month, I can keep my house at 68F most of the time.  Nice!
