Can you place the unit in the direct sunlight?

Asked by: dave
i would say yes as this unit comes with a 20 year warranty on the cabinet not to flake or crack , i coated mine with flexsill so it has additional rubberized coating as well for a longer life . if you go to you will see the warranty on the box as well

Can this unit fit in my window?

I have a 21-1/2 inch wide window opening. There is an inch more clearance on the inside. Could I angle this cooler in and it fit? I know it says 22 inch min. width opening, but it looks like from the photos that the 22 inch includes a lip which would not interfere with the opening.
Asked by: handygal
I went into the store to measure this and it actually needs 22 inches with the front cover on but that cover can actually go on on the inside of your window after the opening! The exact measurement that you actually need for the window opening is 19.5 inches or more.

5,900 CFM 3-Speed Window Evaporative Cooler is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 93.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do it and don't look back. This has been the best cooler I've ever owned. I don't know why I didn't do this sooner. 800 square foot house, 6400 cubic feet. On high, it blows all of the hot air out in under one minute. You can turn it on high, run to the front door, feel hot air go out, then cold air starts. It's awesome. "How does it compare with a roof unit" It makes a lot more noise than a roof unit because it has a circular fan near a grille instead of a squirrel cage. If I left the thing running non-stop like my old side draft roof unit, that would be a problem, but It works so well, that's not an issue. What I like about this unit -This unit has a plastic drain tube on the bottom. I tighten it hand-tight and it does its job without rusting tight like on some units I've had before. I went on a trip for two weeks. I came back and drained the water in five minutes without needing tools, so you don't get the swampy smell of algae. -The water inlet sticks out on the right hand side of the unit when looked at from the outside, easy to reach. -You can see the water wick into the pads. -The vent can blow straight into the room, or divert half left, half right, so you can aim down a hallway or a door. -It's a window unit, I just walk outside and keep it well maintained. I fill a 5-gallon bucket and all of my empty water bottles with the bleed line, and then give the water to the apricot tree, or make some roundup for yard care. -It's plastic. No more rust! I need to UV treat it or put some shade around it so it doesn't get sun beaten. Things that can be changed in the future: -I'd like it if the outer portion containing the rigid pads didn't have the hose to the pump connected to it. It makes assembly a "Fiddly" process for just one person.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too cool! First time I ever owned a swamp cooler. I live in the desert so humidity is not an issue. Temps have been in the high nineties and the warmest the house has been is 75 and most of the time between 72 and 73. I love this thing, wish I would have tried it years ago. I rated four stars because I've only had it for a month. Not ready to decide on five stars yet, but I can't see how you can go wrong. It's affordable, incredibly efficient for its size. So far there is no down side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't believe I didn't do this sooner! Best thing I've ever done for reducing my power bill! Until it reaches 100 degrees, this keeps my home very, very cool. Just how I like it, around 70 degrees. As to the water runoff in other reviews, I fixed this by doubling the drip hose and putting a cable tie on it. This allowed me to just poke an old garden hose over the end. The drip still runs down the side of the black drain hose. With it doubled, it holds the garden hose in place. Placed the other end of the garden hose to a tree so the water is not wasted. (My unit is attached to the side of my house, and before this was keeping my siding wet, not good.) My power bill has decreased around $100 each month in full summer months. I couldn't be happier :) .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expensive AC's electric bill. I bought one of this unit at Home Depot in Antelope and did the DIY which is easy if you know what's you're doing. The only thing that the manufacturer must do is to put a drain hole for easy cleaning without taking the the unit apart! Well, I did drill a 3/8 hole to drain the water. I hope the idiot designer of this unit MUST install a drain plug! This unit will going to take the heat test from California's brutal dry hot weather this summer. I tried from 90 degrees and it works for my 1600 sqft house!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from works, but It's in, it works just fine. On low it's reasonably quiet, and the low profile is a big plus, BUT when it comes to plumbing away the significant amount of water that the bleed off function results in, it would be 10,000 times better if the darn 3/4" threads at the overflow matched something off home depot's shelf. It's not 3/4 tapered pipe thread, nor is it garden hose thread, When I google the manual described 3/4" x 14 TPI ANS Straight pipe thread, I see nothing that the layman has access to, in fact I can't find anything that directly, clearly states that this description of threads is even real. My guess is there's a simple answer which is going to be either, "this is what you need", or " Darn bad shock a luck mate. Every hardware in the outback is stuffed full of 14TPI ANS couplers!" Anyway, it's 110 degrees and the water is running down my wood siding, boo hoo hoo for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works well. I think the concept is good but I had to make modifications. Too much water dumping into top tray. Getting it to stop leaking. Company could have engineered it better. And HB how about parts and acc for the unit. I had to make outside cover when closing it up for the winter. Lowes unit sells acc for their cooler equivalent.

Best swamp cooler you'll ever buy, keeps house cool with out raising your electric bill, this unit has 3 speeds but I only use the third for a whole house fan, open up a window and blow all the hot air out and pull the cool air in.
