Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KilBear Good when blowing on you.
I installed this in my garage on a rolling dolly. The last three weeks it's been over 100 outside, even hotter in the garage. But with the garage door open and the cooler blowing directly on me while working on the car, it's great.
I calculated that it uses about 5 gallons of water every hour which is not much considering how cool it keeps you. But it's been very low humidity here over the hot weeks averaging 10%-12%.
Do not use with garage door closed as it will increase the humidity and make you sweat more while working. Overall, I like it a lot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JM Love the efficiency and size of this model.
It is a little smaller than the one we had, which is good. Easy to put together, but installing it in the window was difficult. Have to take it apart to get it in and out and am not sure how to shut if down for the winter. Has kept us very comfortable on these 90degree days,running it on low.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cyndi Check the dimensions
First I want to say I have had Brisa evaporative coolers and they are very good products. However, I returned this model because the dimensions don't match the model in the picture. This cooler is much wider than the one in the picture. Check dimensions!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by visechoice Does Great!
This cooler was easy to put together and to install using a little common sense, but the instructions could be written better for beginners. For instance, the instructions and parts were inside the cooler, with no reference, outside the box or the cooler, of where they are and how to get to them.
I used the chains and hooks it came with to set it up to the outside wall of the window. it came with everything needed.Works great! keeps the house between 70 and 75 when temperature outside is over 95. The cool breeze going through the house is awesome. we don't need to use floor fans anymore. I set it up on one end of the house and you can feel the breeze through the whole house by leaving a windows five inches open, in every room you want cooled. Plus, you have two speeds, High for a fast cool down, and low for a constant quite flow of cool air.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 74barrio Exceeded Expectations
I purchased and installed the this evaporative cooler back in January 2015 and installed it shortly thereafter so it would be ready for spring/summer. Wanted to wait to post a review until I had some time using it to see how it works and so far it has exceeded my expectations. This cooler replaced an old Kenmore version where the pads rotated on the sides through troughs of water. Because of that the pads on that cooler were always completely wet and I was always concerned a drip version would not work as well, but that cooler was on its last legs and I had to get a new one. Also, the replacement pads for that cooler were very expensive (~$150 annual expense) and you could only order them online from Sears. This cooler looked like the best one out there so I bought it. My house is a little over 1,700 sq ft.
Installation was not that hard and it was a close fit where the old one was installed so I only had to do some minor drywall/stucco work after installing it. The only hiccup with this cooler is that the drip system did not evenly distribute the water across all the pads. Five out of the 6 drip lines worked, but I couldn’t get water out of the 6th one unless I plugged one of the other ones. To solve this I installed pieces of ¼ inch landscape tubing in the 5 that worked to restrict their flow a little and then was able to get water to come out of the 6th one to get all the pads being evenly wet. I also had to tape over a couple of the slots over the pads to direct water to where the pads were dry, but other than that the thing works great and it usually meets or exceeds the air temp output when compared to the number identified on the humidity/outside air chart matrix that you can find online. It’s also pretty quiet compared to the old Kenmore one that it replaced, plus when it comes time to replace the pads it won’t cost hardly anything compared to what I was paying before. Since I’m not using the bleed line I’ll probably have to replace the pads more often because of mineral buildup, but that’s ok with me.
You can’t go wrong with this cooler.
