Customer Questions & Answers

How much water does it hold and is it recycled

Asked by: Shorty
It holds about 4 gallons of water. It is not recycled. The water is evaporated/dissipates in the air. If it is not ventilated well it makes your room muggy.

my artic cove cooler is not blowing out cool air what could be the problem

Asked by: hot
Hi Hot! This cooler was only designed to be used with cold water. The evaporative cooler is not an air conditioner. It does not have a refrigeration system. When the pump is on, it will draw water into the media which will have a cooling effect on the air flow. For better cooling, open the top compartment door and add ice. I hope this helps. Thanks for reaching out to us!

Hi I wanted to know can this be put in a garage. My husband does a lot of work in garage as far as building things but in summer its scorching hot. He wants to keep the garage door closed due to sun but it gets so hot that he has to keep the garage door open to let some what cool air in. any suggestions?
Asked by: Consernedwife
yes.. however do not waste your time buying this. It is a total waste of money. The fan is very weak.. and blows about as good as a 5 dollar personal fan..

350 CFM 3 Speed Portable Evaporative Cooler for 175 sq. ft. is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Artic cove cooler Had my cooler for about a week now and I really like it. I live in a one bedroom apartment and it keeps it comfortable. The 3 gal water tank last just under 3 days on the lowest setting running all the time. I would recommend this to anyone on a budget. I used to keep my cooler next to an open window but the sound of traffic was annoying. Without it be next to an open window or door it still works very well!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible! This doesn't cool anything at all! It's awful waste of money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from weak fan.. very weak fan, so weak my grandmother could blow harder Out the box this thing looks nice. Loading water into the reservoir was very easy and held quite a bit of water. the controls were easy to use as well. Other than that this thing is complete junk. The fan was pathetic at best. All kidding aside I could blow harder than this thing. If your over two feet away you cant even feel the fan. The only thing this thing could cool is a 3x3 box ( on a good day) I give them two stars for effort and lost the three on the fan alone... Spend the extra money and buy one with a squirrel cage. For the sake of saying it.. the air does come out cool.. as expected from a typical swamp cooler but what are you going to do with cool air that comes out a 0 mph.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I really like this evaporative cooler. It helped to cool off my 3rd floor bedroom in my town-home. The summers are just unbearably hot up there (90 degrees), fans weren't cutting it and an A/C unit wasn't an option. I use it at night 5 days a week (and all day Sat/Sun) I fill it up in the afternoon after work and it usually lasts until I wake up in the morning. A couple of tips: * Keep it by an open window (this helps a ton!) * When you want to refill, turn the power off and wait a few minutes for the pump to move. If you power it off and pull out the tank immediately, the pump will still be in the way. *Keep in mind that this isn't an air conditioner, it works differently. If you expect an A/C unit you're going to be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but there is a small LEARNING CURVE First off, if you don't understand swamp coolers already then this isn't the product for you. I've used them for years, and even I had to tweak things a bit (things that should have been in the manual but weren't). I'll skip basic swamp cooler knowledge and go straight into this model - you have to REALLY tune the drip rate and direction of the water via the control knob AND the little output pipe. You want the filter media to be damp, but not soaked. At the maximum flow setting there is WAY too much water being fed - I don't even think in front of a window with 110 degree temps could make use of that much flow. Ideally you'd have a small corner of the media actually dry - the thinner the layer of water the better the evaporation. Again, having the media SOAKED is not ideal (for ANY swamp cooler). With this model I've found that you almost have to have the flow control knob all the way OFF to get proper evaporation (although I haven't tested the thing beyond 85 degree temps yet). Another mild annoyance is this means the pump is recirculating the water a lot, and it drips audibly back into the tank. I think I'm actually starting to like that sound though, kind of reminds me of camping next to a small creek. Bottom line: This product isn't the most user friendly thing right out of the gate, and the manual should have included a section along the lines of my comments here. After spending a day with it though I'm very happy. Final thought: MOST PEOPLE HAVE NO CLUE how to properly use a swamp cooler in the first place, and without that knowledge I could definitely see people being very disappointed in this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this unless you want to be disappointed This product was easy to put together. That was the only thing good about it! The fan doesn't blow very good and it barely blew cold air out of it. The air wasn't even that cold. It uses a lot of water. If you don't get good ventilation in the room, it will make your room muggy. I was very disappointed. It is not worth $200. There were 7 good reviews and 13 bad reviews when I bought this. I should have went with my gut and not bought it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaked Immediately, Hoses come kinked with no mention of hoses or pictures of how they should be in instructions Following directions explicitly, when I took out water container to fill and check filter media, the two clear hoses were kinked. There was an open ended hose that looked like one of those hoses tied together should go into, and when I called store for assistance, after being made to feel like I was bothering him because he was busy, finally got him to open one up and look. He said he easily de-kinked the hose with his finger, and because mine would NOT de-kink, made it sound like I was at fault. There is a small third open ended up-facing hose that looked like one of those other ones should be inserted into, but nothing is mentioned either online or in instructions, there are no hoses even pictured. When I plugged it in, it leaked all over my carpet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved Us We have had this fan for 3 years and it has been a life saver. You do have to make sure you have good room circulation, as with any swamp cooler. Love putting ice cubes in the bottom.
