Evaporatve cooler still working afte4 33 years.

Blower frame broke many years ago.

Replacement found. However old shaft diameter too big.

Abrasive sheets used to use reduce diameter of shaft. Long and unpleasant process.

Bracket holding water pump broke off in 2012 because of rust. Cooler appeared doomed.

Conisidered replacing cooler. Expensive.

But replacement bracket fabricated with steel fllat bar purchased from Lowe's.

Permatex blue used to glue bracket. Works great! Tougher than original welded bracket.

PNM rebate may make replacing old cooler attractive?

Let's see.

PNM $300 rebate on evaporative coolers good deal. But for who? Other than us.

Possible PNM/PRC electric energy efficiency scam?

Better idea than adding insulation for staying as 'cool as a cucumber'?


installed by American of Persian origin at

Installer first fitted dash cover, then secured with about 1 inch square velcro sticky tabs.

Cover lifted where needed to insert tabs. Estimated 10-15 tabs used.

Installer opined on Saddam Hussein, Iraq, US middle east policies, and reported he had relatives
killed in the Iraq/Iran war.

PNM gave rebates only on refrigerated air upgrades from evaporative coolers several years ago citing excessive water use, if memory is correct.

NMGCO/TECO employee Steve Casey [white shirt]

discusses natural gas price futures Friday August 15, 2014.

1 Who 'requires or mandates' bill asks.

2 Radon and retrofitted insulation problem?, bill asks.

3 Responder and bill chat after meeting.

A dark side of insulation arises, however, from its trapping of radon gas, cigarette smoke, household sprays and other toxins within the enhanced imperviousness of the building skin. Furthermore, insulation can promote the entrapment of moisture, that in turn may increase the formation of molds and mildews, some of which contain toxic species. ...

Compounding the problem of trapping indoor air pollutants, some insulation techniques employ fibers and chemicals that themselves have adverse human health effects including toxicity risks. ...

Adverse consequences of insulation

Increase in mortality from radon and other toxins;
Increase in illness, especially from respiratory disease;
Loss of worker productivity, from allergenic molds and other toxins; and
Increase in societal and individual costs for health care.

Please remember that if you use a vapor barrier sealed to the foundation to prevent radon gas from entering your living space, you must provide a venting system to permit the gas to exit the "crawl space." We installed a pipe-and-fan system which has taken care of our radon problem.

American Made Crawl Space Vapor Barriers.

Ideally, radon should be measured in all buildings which are due for refurbishment. This especially applies to houses with inhabited rooms in contact with the soil and houses in radon risk regions. If the measurement shows an elevated radon concentration, it must be taken into consideration when planning refurbishment work. ...

Once construction work has been completed, it is recommended to measure the radon concentration to ensure that the retrofitted insulation has not caused an increase of the radon concentration. If an elevated radon concentration was found before the insulation was installed, another measurement must always be carried out after the work has been completed.

Reason for question is no blue wire in cooler cable.

Orange wire is likly candidate to be connected to blue wire.

Verification made with free Harbor Freight digital multimeter.

White return checked first by loosing plug to check continuity.

Blue wire verified V+.

Green chasis ground checked third.

Unused wire terminated with wire screws.


Not cut. Reason is that if mistake made, then it is easier to repair.

Refigerated air conditioning radon alert.

Epidemiological studies have shown a clear link between breathing high concentrations of radon and incidence of lung cancer. Thus, radon is considered a significant contaminant that affects indoor air quality worldwide. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, radon is the second most frequent cause of lung cancer, after cigarette smoking, causing 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the United States. About 2,900 of these deaths occur among people who have never smoked. While radon is the second most frequent cause of lung cancer, it is the number one cause among non-smokers, according to EPA estimates.
Evaporative Cooling Evaporative cooling is nature’s way of cooling. When air is moved over a wet surface, water is evaporated and heat is absorbed. When stepping out of a swimming pool with the wind blowing, evaporative cooling makes you feel cool, even though the air may be warm. The human body itself is cooled primarily by the evaporation of perspiration.

This unit works on the same principle. Air is drawn across wet filter pads where the air is cooled by evaporation and then circulated throughout the building. It is this combination of cooled air and the movement of air over the skin which makes it feel cool.

Unlike refrigeration systems which recirculate the air, an evaporative cooler continually brings in fresh air while exhausting old air. You are completely replacing the air every 2 to 4 minutes by opening windows or doors or a combination of both. The air is always fresh, not stale, laden with smoke [Radon] and odors as happens with refrigerated air conditioning.

Mark Mathis

Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will steal your HONOR. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse.
