Customer Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: treborjant
Evaporative "swamp" coolers create the impression of cooler air by adding moisture to moving air. The higher the ambient humidity is, the less effective the unit's perceived cooling. In my experience, high humidity is insufferable enough without adding more moisture to it.

Can this evap cooler installed in a sealed garage space use a thermostat to control it?

Asked by: js2712
The standard switch can be replaced with a thermostat-controlled switch. But in a sealed space, since you're adding more "wet" rather than more "cool," wouldn't a humidistat make more sense?

Can it be used in a body shop without putting it in a window?

Asked by: tony
Yes, but then it's less a cooler and more a humidifier. Without taking in fresh air to moisten and exhausting the hot air through a window or door farther away, you're just adding moisture to a confined space. It will cool, but not very effectively. MOVING moist air is what gives the impression of cooling.

Is this cooler really loud or just a little?

Is this cooler really loud or just a little?
Asked by: ja502
If it's in the same room, it's really loud. But I guess that would depend on you.

2800 CFM 2-Speed Window Evaporative Cooler for 600 sq. ft. (with Motor) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 70.

I bought this cooler 2 days ago and installed it in the living room the same day. We've been having a heat wave here in Northern Arizona with temps over 100 so I needed some fast relief. Window install using provided hardware was very straightforward and simple. It took me about two hours by myself. Yes, this unit includes the water pump (I wasn't for sure on that till I got it home). My little one bedroom house is about 750 sq ft., and this cooler has made a VERY noticeable difference... Ahhh ;-) What I really wanted to respond to was the noise factor that others have mentioned; on the first day I noticed that this unit was quite a bit noisier than other evap coolers I have lived with, but then today i was inspecting the plastic louvres on the front grill. They are a little loose and are made that way so you can turn them to adjust the direction of the incoming air flow. However, they do vibrate with the wind pressure coming through the unit. This is where the excessive noise is coming from. So, if you buy this unit, just play with the louvres on the front grill till you get them set into a position where they don't vibrate. I used a little piece of scotch tape on one blade to hold it in place and that seems to work fine. This unit does meet my expectations and I would buy it again as well as recommend it to a friend ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate cool! We replaced an old rusted out cooler with this one. Not only is it smaller than the old one, it's quite a bit quieter as well. It isn't super quiet, but not loud either. Does a good job cooling the upper level of our house- 3 bedrooms. Would recommend, especially with the rebate from the utility provider, made the net cost just over $150

I live in Southern New Mexico and would definitely recommend this swamp cooler. It was very easy to set up. I have had no experience doing that kind of thing, but I was able to install it myself without any problems. The instructions were clear and easy to understand. It's working great and my 480 sq. ft. workshop is kept nice and cool. My only criticisms are that the motor is a little bit noisy and the pads look like they will be difficult to change, but I'm learning to tune out the noise and just enjoy the cheap, cool air. I'll deal with the pads next year!

This cooler is a joke. It's noisy. The vents don't close to keep air out. There is no internal Grille cover for it. I called the company. Although HD sells one that's supposed to be for it, it's not. I will be returning the cover, and figure out how to cover the vents when needed. Right now I have two pillows in it. But you have to remove the Grille to put them in. Not convenient.
