Also, since it is an evaporative process, efficiency will be affected by the relative humidity. Warm climates at sea level would find high temperatures near 100% humidity where the unit would be installed necessitating the use of lots of fuel and generating more heat inside the hull. Sure it can be done, but there are many reasons other technologies have been adopted.
