Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SanDiegoAug1943 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chip61 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!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Maaggie 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MountainResident 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 mws48662 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LasVegasTeamster 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.
