Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dropped my July bill 75 percent I knew this was a little undersized for our home, but it fit in the budget and we hoped it would be enough. It's been fantastic. We couldn't be happier with the performance. I installed a drain pump as well that empties the water every 8 hours and I think that has really made it great. Our typical August bill is around $400; according to SCE this one will be $130. Good cooling, great savings, little/no maintenance. Exactly what I was looking for. August 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works perfectly Ordered it on line, was delivered after reasonable time, had a professional install it, and it is working great! Yes I can recommend this one for a single wide mobile home or similar sized house. It may work well in a double wide mobile too. So far I havn't had to use the high speed setting! April 23, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This cooler is so powerful and cool! I have air conditioning through out my home, however, my bill in summer was sky-high. I bought this evaporative cooler and it is so powerful! It cools my home perfectly, my plants are thriving, and the best deal is: I can run it day and night without my electric bill jumping the charts. June 18, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by We really like this unit We have had evap coolers for over 30 years. This is our 3rd Champion. They have a great product, except ours came with a dent on the roof, and a bolt was missing on the motor support. I repaired both problems. The units are simple in construction are are cost effective to run. I sprayed auto undercoating inside the pan to extend the life of the cooler. June 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No Problems Without Remote Control Last time around Home Depot only sold the unit with the remote control. I highly recommend staying away from that unit. I had nothing but trouble with it. I read a review here where a customer couldn't figure out why his unit all of a sudden quit working - it's the remote control switch! The company quickly replaced the switch which quit working in 4 days. Rather than go through that again I asked for a regular switch and they accommodated me right away - their customer service is excellent. That unit was jinxed and only lasted 3 years. With this one I have had no problems and I recommend it. June 28, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by This products quality has declined noticeably in the past few years while the price has increased significantly. Product arrived damaged but store it was shipped to was able to replace that part. Once installed more damage to the vent was noticed and the fan housing had a space between it and the wall that allowed water to spray through the air vent into the house. Also the adjustable air vent plastic grill makes too much noise unless adjusted to point to either side and never straight which is very inefficient and inconvenient. June 4, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I had one of these- lasted 12 years with minimal maintenance eventually it rusted out, but the motor still worked. Evaporative coolers can be great! But not for area's where the humidity is all ready high. So they are ideal for desert or arid places. They are low cost to run. Work best when filters are changed Before they clog up. In Riverside, Ca. I run mine in the garage all day from 10am to 6pm when the out side temps get to 90degrees- my dogs love it. My Champion Evap. Cooler lasted 12 years- will get another one. A good value. Aslo, remember to oil the bearings every two weeks- only takes a minute. After 10 years the motor worked great. But alas, the bottom rusted out. May 21, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Quality, Great Customer Service! Although my cooler arrived damaged (the roof was heavily dented by lift truck arms), I was able to hammer out the damage with auto body tools and get the machine into service (the damage prevented a side door from opening). I called customer service and they gave me a 10% discount for my trouble! Note that any damage to the roof of the unit is very hard to identify until the heavy packing materials are removed. I didn't remove the packing until I had lifted the unit into place. The last thing I wanted to do was dismount the unit and haul it back to the store! After the corrective bodywork, I moved the water supply hole to a different corner of the housing (an easy modification) and closed the original opening with foil tape (the manufacturer should provide at least one plastic plug for this purpose). I also replaced the water filler nipple/float component with a new brass unit (the component supplied by the manufacturer is junk). I also installed an anode bar (anything to deter corrosion!). Now (after a few minor mods), the unit fits my needs perfectly! It provides an impressive wind velocity for the size of the motor! This unit has several notable improvements over previous models; 1) Brass-plated screws now connect the side doors to the main housing (to hopefully deter corrosion); 2) the standoff rods are easy to install and adjust (but increase the overall width of the unit by several inches); 3) Although the sheet metal is thinner, the paint coating seems to be more rugged (increasing the lifespan of the unit); 4) Everything you really need is provided; 5) The instructions are great and the installation (including mods) is easy! 6) The plastic vent grille is easy to remove for winterizing. Note that I also bought a nice cover and some spares parts. Of all the options out there, this unit is the best value for the money! February 19, 2014
