Installing an evaporative cooler (sometimes known as a swamp cooler) is a fairly heavy duty task. Not because it is terribly complex, but rather because it is actually a heavy job. Those coolers aren't exactly light you know. Just because it is a heavy task, doesn't mean that you can't do the job. All you need to do is follow these instructions, and make sure that you have a friend to help you out.
Congratulations, you have now finished installing your new evaporative air cooler. There is only one thing left for you to do, and that is to ensure that there are no leaks around the cooler and the window. Basically you need to fill in any void space around the cooler. While it is a good idea to leave a window open to help deal with excessive humidity from an evaporative cooler, you still want to have a tight seal with the window that the cooler is in. This will help prevent any water from rain coming in, as well as preventing any creepy crawlies from getting in.
