Also keep in mind, a lot of those ones like you are looking at must be hand filled... so you may want to look at one before you buy to see if it has room to add a float to. I would probably stay away from the computer controlled stuff- just because of the greenhouse environment. I'll see if I can look around for a cheaper option.

    Oh, and I don't know if evaporative coolers are popular where you are as they are here.. but check craigslist- I have bought 2 from there that people barely used in their garage for really cheap... the mmb8 and mmb10...
    Thanks! You've been a big help. I might as well go for the MMB8 if you strongly suggest it, unless there's a cheaper option that will do the same job.

    Do you have any suggestions as far as the thermostat goes? Is there a simple one I can just plug the heater cord and the cooler cord into and set it to the temperature range I want?

    Well, keep in mind that the cooler is discontinued. I purchased a few sets of replacement pads for mine wile they were still around. I never checked online for them though. I used the masterstat for the cooler... 110 at lowes. cheaper here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/MasterStat-E...item3373b00f58 if you are decent with wiring or have someone that can help.
    For "cheap" (and i've never used them) there are these outlet things preset to temps.. like this: http://www.charleysgreenhouse.com/in...2=414&cid3=-99 and others a bit higher range. see some selections here: http://www.charleysgreenhouse.com/in...er.y=0&mtype=3
    Good luck!

    Well I guess if it's discontinued it wouldn't be a good idea to buy one since I'll need replacement pads... Any suggestion for another evaporative cooler that goes in the same price range $200-$300?

    I'll check around at OSH, Lowes and Home Depot for thermostats and see what I can do as far as that goes. I wish there was a controller that had outlets I could just plug my heater and cooler into and set the temperature range.

    There are plug in styles in the charley's link i gave you... lowes/hd definitely don't have them. I'll look around if i get a chance for other coolers.

    Does that first cooler look good to you more experienced folks? I would prefer to order tonight so it can be shipped tomorrow and I can work on it over the weekend.
