Customer Questions & Answers

Are these units recommended for humid climates, like south Florida?

Asked by: treborjant
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.

Asked by: tony
It is designed for use in a window, Any modification on installation may reduce efficiency.

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

Asked by: Gail
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.

2800 CFM 2-Speed Window Evaporative Cooler for 600 sq. ft. (with Motor) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 includes the motor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in low humidity places! I set this up the beginning of May in Denver, CO. It works great! Last year I had a portable evaporative cooler that was horrible (It would just circulate hot humid air.. yuck). DO NOT BUY A SWAMP COOLER IF YOU LIVE IN A HUMID PLACE THEY DO NOT WORK IN HUMID PLACE (FL I'm looking at you!). Not much to setup (Other than running a water line). Easy to setup and I haven't had to service it yet but it looks simple to clean and maintain too. Fantastic! Highly suggest you get one before the summer hits you in the face!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool Cool Summer! I bought this about a week ago and installed the very next day! It great for keeping my house cool upstairs - No more sweaty nights on top of the sheets! Was easier to install than putting together a bookcase and I cracked the window in my bedroom about 3 inches and the air moves right through my room and humidity carries out. Yeah make sure to crack a window just a few inches so the air will flow in the direction you want, otherwise it will just get humid and act as a fan. Great for Denver weather, since it's so dry. The length of the cord could have been a little longer (just saying).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great...Economical to Operate I've purchased 2 or 3 of these coolers in the past few years for different applications. As long as you're not trying to cool a large house, they work great. We use it in Arizona in April through June, and again in September and October. Generally, July and August are too humid for effective use of an evaporative cooler. It adds very little to our electric bill each month...way cheaper than refrigeration. Swamp Cooler hints...keep a window open at the opposite end of the house of the cooler so the cool air will flow through the whole home. Rinse out the cooler once per week...drain the old water out. It tends to get concentrated with minerals that shorten pad life and cooling effectiveness. Keep the cooler on all night and you'll have a cold house in the morning. Turn off the cooler and close up the house and it should stay cool for many hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome unit This was given to me as a gift and I can tell you this things worth it's weight in gold. It's really easy to set up and I've got mine strapped to a furniture dolly so it's portable. I live in Las Vegas and with 100+ weather being the norm, I'm greatful to have it. We use it on the back patio, in the shed, and the 2 car garage. It keeps us cool and we put a block of ice in it for extra comfort.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You need to provide a vent You people complaining about the CFM. This is a once thru unit, you cannot ciculate through an evaporative cooler. In order for it to blow air in, you have to provide for air to blow out. Open a window across the house enough that you feel the air slowly leaving the house. If you close up your house this unit will not work. Also you have to be somewhere dry, like less than 20% RH on the hot days. And if your night RH rises to 70% it might not do much through the night, just use a regular fan then.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Evaporate a/c Provides cooling and humidity for a 100sq ft greenhouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better tthan we thought Although larger than the unit being replaced, we were concerned that the rated square footage was less than our house size but since this is used only to supplement the refrigeration and installation size was important, we decided try this small model. No worries! Air flow is more than adequate. Do be careful installing the plastic drain fitting. It's not possible to get it really tight and it can loosen when tightening a drain hose. It needs too be held on the inside so put on a hose before closing the back.
