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.

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.

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: 
Yes, but it's a lot of work. Have to unscrew the supports for cage from the two side ones, then all the screws on top too. I just remove the back panel and I was able to leave side ones in and pop open my side of the wires holding the pads. I am petite so I could fit my hands in easily to change them. I used a short small wire brush to clean out calcium in the slots.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
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 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 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
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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great So far it has kept the small area cool. will review later if anything changes June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Nice Evaporative Cooler We live at slightly over 7,000 feet and have been using a similar evaporative cooler in our master bedroom since 1999 (still works). While shopping at Home Depot today we found this cooler on sale for $318 (was originally advertised for $354). Our living room faces to the west so it gets very warm in the late afternoon (around 83F). We built a stand for this cooler and placed it in the kitchen window without any problems. Everything you need for installation is included except the copper water tubing and faucet/valve. Even though the cooler comes with two (2) wall chains we have learned over the years to build your own cooler stand in addition to using the support chains. This provides a more stable platform for the cooler. After about 3 hours of building the stand, installing the cooler and closing up open gaps we have a very nice cooling system on the west side of our house. Works great! As I am writing this at 1630 hours, the living room temperature is a cool 73F and dropping. Note: because of our highly alkaline well water we have found that using a zinc anode and water conditioner blocks really helps. We highly recommend Champion products and this evaporative cooler.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Runs quiet, cools great. Easy to install. Runs great , cools most of the house. Only thing, seen a bit of rust starting on the inside of pan after running for a month. I can fix it this winter. Got my sister two for her house and they work great. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 14, 2016
