An evaporative cooler (also swamp cooler, desert cooler and wet air cooler) is a device that cools air through the evaporation of water. Evaporative cooling differs from typical air conditioning systems which use vapor-compression or absorption refrigeration cycles. Evaporative cooling works by employing water's large enthalpy of vaporization. The temperature of dry air can be dropped significantly through the phase transition of liquid water to water vapor (evaporation), which can cool air using much less energy than refrigeration. In extremely dry climates, evaporative cooling of air has the added benefit of conditioning the air with more moisture for the comfort of building occupants.
The cooling potential for evaporative cooling is dependent on the wet bulb depression, the difference between dry-bulb temperature and wet-bulb temperature. In arid climates, evaporative cooling can reduce energy consumption and total equipment for conditioning as an alternative to compressor-based cooling. In climates not considered arid, indirect evaporative cooling can still take advantage of the evaporative cooling process without increasing humidity. Passive evaporative cooling strategies offer the same benefits of mechanical evaporative cooling systems without the complexity of equipment and ductwork.... more
I would actually like to find a couple of assisted living facilities around the west to work at. I have always thought it would be fun to work at one and help people in their older age. It would help if I could get a list of living centers so I could compare and see if I can work at one of them.

None that I am aware of. There are some nice rental apartment developments around town, but none that are brand new or under construction and/or restricted to 55 plus.
If you can qualify for a loan, you might want to consider purchasing a condo as, in many cases, the monthly mortgage payments may be less than monthly apartment rent - especially when you take into account the tax benefits of ownership.
Should you be interested in exploring the ownership option, let me know and I'll be glad to help.
I have a 1 bedroom, 2 bath condo for rent that is 4 mins from Academy Road in Santa Fe.
Contact me at 505-927-6805 or 505-927-4933 for more info. Thanks!... more

We have a house for sale that might meet your qualifications - it's a main house 3br/2Ba of almost 3000 sf, AND an attached but separate gorgeous views-guesthouse. It's totally central in an excellent neighborhood, i think it may be right for these schools... look shortly on SF craigslist as well as here for a 'Santa Fe Classic large home on one acre'.... more
