    They are both going to cool to the same degree, and if you have multiple units running at the same time all that will happen is that it will cool faster. Depending on the size of the chamber, one may not make the whole chamber whatever temperature the unit is cooling to in a single night. Two units may do the job in enough time. However, I would try one (you can adjust the power of the fan and size of the pad if you want) before adding a second.

    Aidan, thats pretty much the whole point, to cool the air.

    How it works is that when water is at its boiling point, it doesn't just instantly evaporate. It needs more energy to change into the higher energy state of matter (a gas) and so it gets that energy from heat around it, and thus can be cleverly used as a cooling agent. I'm not saying that the cooler is going to be boiling water, but it still takes energy for the water to evaporate. It probably won't do too much for humidity.


    I learned this all in physics...I can't believe I remembered all that...

    If you add a fogger, it may not cool as well. You will have to add it inside the chamber, so that it does not make the air interacting with the cooler any more humid. And this does in fact do a lot for humidity. Look at the original post for my results.
