They are called "swamp coolers" because after a while that is what your house, or car will smell like.

Interesting...I kind of wondered where the term came from

What about dry ice? No water, no moldy smell

Dry ice is CO2, not healthy to breath.

One brand was the "Cool-Can" Cooler. The reason they are called "Swamp Coolers" is that they use evaporation from water to cool the air.
