I'm curious what people think about this idea. Swamp coolers work by running water over a mesh where air passes through and evaporative cooling causes the temperature of the resultant air to be lower. This only works when the humidity of the air isn't too high, but it seems like the same principle would apply to an outdoor split system AC condenser unit. If you you have pop up sprinklers that put out a lot of mist, the condenser would suck that misted air into the coils, the water would touch the coils and cool them lower then they would if there was just regular ambient air. Your condenser compressor would work less hard for a given btu of heat transfer. The draw back might be premature aging of the unit because it gets more weather/water then designed for.
What are peoples thoughts on this topic? Have people actually tested this?
