Answer: 
Probably would not do much good in humid climates. An evaporative cooler is basically a big fan that pulls outside air through wet pads to cool the air. There are cooler charts online that will show you the best temp you can get out of an evaporative cooler based on humidity and temp.

Answer: 
This unit is not designed to operate that way. It needs to have a source of outside air (installed in window or wall ) and the air supplied by the cooler needs a place to vent like another window, gable vent or Updux installed in the ceiling. As the dew point gets closer to 50, the less efficent the unit becomes. Evap coolers are effective in a dry climate only. hope this helps.

Answer: 
Swamp coolers work by taking outside air and cooling it by evaporating some water into it. Relative humidity goes from around 30% to 60% and that is more comfortable for us with ~15F cooler air. So your body shop would have to have a few hundred cfm entering 1 place and then exiting another place kind of far from the entry.

Answer: 
For 120v units, Sure! I have a unit sitting on a furniture dolly so it can be moved around the shop. Water may have to be put into the sump manually, but there are no emissions so the only issue is the electrical cord.

When on high, the fan sprays small droplets of water through the grill. When on low, no problem. Why does this happen?

Answer: 
Mine does that too. I just figured it was because the space between panels and wheel are closer than would be on a larger unit. Mine is new this year. I have read that sometimes the spider that puts water on the pads may have a crack in it and that could cause it. I have a rug with backing laying in front of mine.

Answer: 
Maybe too much water on the pad. You can try lowering the water level in the tank and make sure the unit is level. Ensure that the tube feeding the pad frame is watering the trough on the pad frame properly. Also check if the holes on the pad frame trough are not plugged or restricted. Seems like water is getting where it shouldn't be. I have one of these and it works fine.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 58 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good decision I bought this for friends who live in the desert, who had previously used a window air conditioner. Their home is small, so it worked well, but the electric bills were getting outrageous! According to them, a "swamp cooler" would be just as effective but less expensive to run. Although I can't provide specific details, I do know that they're very happy with the 2800 CFM 2-speed cooler, and I was told that installation was no problem. Incidentally, I didn't realize until I started researching these products, that it isn't at all uncommon for them to be sold without a motor, requiring you to purchase one separately. Not this one...it includes the motor! August 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Second swamp cooler bought This cooler is great for cooling our cabin in the desert. It works great and is less expensive than an air conditioner. The first cooler we bought ran night and day for months on end and lasted two years. Although it only needed a new knob, we decided to buy another one. We will repair the first one and use in another building. April 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Evaporate a/c Provides cooling and humidity for a 100sq ft greenhouse. August 23, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by This unit was a floor model !!!! This unit had parts missing!!! This unit was a display unit and someone removed the knob the turns unit on had to go buy one from local hardware store to complete this job for our customer!!!!!!! Not the way we like to do business!! August 9, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by It was a functional needed item I did not install, I had unit installed by handy man for an investment property August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding! After returning a portable unit a few days ago that didn't do the job, I paid a bit more and got this unit. It didn't take long to have it up and running and has worked great! Even in 110 degree heat, it's keeping a 12' x 22' room very comfortable. It cools off the room so well that once the sun goes down, I have to put it on the "low cool" setting, then at bed time, I shut it off. By morning, the room is slightly warm, but once I turn it on, it's back to cool again in no time. Seriously, don't waste your time with one of the portable units. Invest in one of these or a larger window unit and you'll be able to deal with the dry heat waves in comfort. Just remember - you get what you pay for! June 22, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Too noisy The cooler works ok, it's a good size, but it is very noisy . July 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by High speed is noisy Works well except on High cooling speed the fan makes a lot of noise. Too much trouble to dismount and return for exchange. July 1, 2016
