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.

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 one...it 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.
