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.

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.

Can i switch out motor and install a larger one??

Id like to putba 1/2 hp motor in. Can i??
Asked by: Aaronb80
I don't think so. This is a Direct Drive cooler. Which means there are no belts. The motor sits between two small squirrel cages.

2800 CFM 2-Speed Window Evaporative Cooler for 600 sq. ft. (with Motor) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 64.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cooler. Great cooler.

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).
