peltier device air con Answered

hey guys I am working on a project, my first, and am wondering if any one is willing to offer advice. the simple setup uses a swamp cooler to blow cold air over a radiator. the radiator cools down water that is connected to a peltier.if my theory is half accurate (which at best it is) I should be able to make the peltier quite a few degrees below the ambient temperature.

While the peltier is capable of getting fairly cold it has to put out a lot of heat out the back end. It's also not vary good at cooling a large surface area. They are great for keeping a CPU cool but won't do much to help cool a room or other small space. It will end up putting off more heat than it is able to cool.
