My grandpa always discouraged the fridge-style chillers because, unlike an airconditioner, the compressor in a refridgerator was never designed for continuous use.

I've seen designs for cooling set-ups based on the heatexchangers you see used in high-performance computers, but these are admittedly for small enclosures.

It depends how much of a temperature drop you need. Me, I use a one-room window-mounted airconditioner. I figure, if I'm already using that much electricity, I should get to enjoy the temperature drop as much as my critters do.
