Customer Questions & Answers

Can the unit sit on the ground?

I live in a two story rental duplex town home. I can't alter the home in any way externally or internally. Can this unit sit on the ground so that I would be able to run it through the patio door? Our temps are reaching 100+ degrees so my cats and kids are having trouble with the heat. I haven't used an evaporative cooler before but can't install an a/c unit and I have heard swamp coolers work so much better than air conditioning. Thanks.
Asked by: Toohot
This unit is designed to go through a window. Placing it on the ground would not work well. I would recommend going to the manufacturer's website to see options on what coolers would work best for you with the set up you have. The link can be found at https://www.essickair.com/champion/.

Will this unit fit in my window?

I have a 21-1/2 inch wide opening by 45 inch tall window. The window slides side to side; not up and down. Would this unit be appropriate for my window?

Does it come wired with a plug?

Asked by: Simone
Yes, these units come wired with a cord and plug that is plugged into a receptacle on the inside of the structure you are installing it in. The cord comes out of the front face of the unit that is on the inside of the structure.

4700 CFM 2-Speed Window Evaporative Cooler for 1600 sq. ft. (with Motor and Remote Control) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I bought two of these coolers and have used them now thru an entire summer in Northern California. Temps here can and does hit 108F frequently. It is a dry climate and these coolers have worked much better than I anticipated. I did not turn on my expensive heat pump at all.The only minor draw back was a little motor noise, but it's not real bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for my 2000 sqaure foot house. This cools my house very well. Even when the outside temp was 119 degrees, the inside temp was stil in the low 80s and quickly returned to the 70s after sunset. I have made upgrades. Double up the aspen filters! Drill small holes in the side opposite the little slits in the gutters. This will allow the water to flow to both layers of media. Doing this greatly improved the effiency of my cooler. For dessert dwellers, I live in Las Vegas, be ready to replace the media every month IF you do not have filtered water. Otherwise, the outler layer will build up with sediments and stop absorbing water.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Workmanship is lousy. I am tired of everything being so cheap. I noticed that the old champion cooler I replaced was better made. The filter panels are of lower quality than my old Champion. The filter panels were screwed in with self taping screws. When you remove them there is now untreated metal that will rust. Two of the panels didn't fit correctly into the unit. A section of the top was pushed in. The louvers on the filter panels are very sharp. I cut my fingers trying to get the panels to fit right in the unit. I am disappointed with with this unit. To be fair, the unit works.. Take a look at one before you buy it. I will see over time if the unit was worth thew money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some things you need to know These things work great in the desert. Not everyone knows what i am going to share, Set the unit in a window and then seal all the interior around the inlet duct. This prevents humidified air at the interior from being sucked back into the cooler through the pads. Humidified air won't cool as no evaporation can take place. This helps keep the unit operating at its most efficient. Install a bleeder "T" on the supply hose to the spider. This purges a minor amount of water that is full of dissolved solids left behind by evaporation. Run the bleeder line through the drain pipe and then out of the way, a good distance from the unit. 30 feet or better is good. Why, you ask? Alkali is a killer on cooler pads and this prevents build up. The discharge water needs to be dumped a good distance away (downwind) as it will evaporate and raise the humidity in the area, lessening the efficiency of the unit. these things will help this excellent piece of equipment work at its best. Good luck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cools nicely Admittedly, it's only been installed a day, but wow did it make a difference in my parents' 1,400 sf house in just minutes. Mounted it in the window at the end of the hall and it blows all the way down and into the living room. Open the front door a crack on the other side of the house and you feel a nice gentle cool breeze. Runs very quietly too. The old unit was also a Champion and it lasted around 20 years. I wasn't comfortable with the thin chains and mounting hardware so had a platform built instead. Float assembly didn't look too durable but it works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The remote control is great I ordered this cooler online and picked it up at the store and was in and out within 15 min, what a great experience. It was also very easy to install and had everything needed for the installation. This was a very positive experience . thank you Home Depot

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great performance and good value Had this unit for 3 years, in southern california in the high desert it does great!!! Had to replace the blower motor half way through the 2nd year, It cools our 2 story 1800 sq ft house very well. just open a window a little bit at the opposite end of the house and an upstairs window and it does VERY well. Our hard water is very harsh on the pads and the pan, we use CLR once a month to clean it. costs about 1/4 of the the cost of AC. VERY HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performed as expected. We live in western Washington where evaporative coolers are not normally used. The summers here normally have middle level humidity, but this summer has been unusually dry. I decided to try an evaporative cooler and have not been disappointed. It cools the house 10 to 15 degrees cooler than without the cooler. It had been 90° in the house at the end of the day, now it is anywhere from 68 to 78 depending on the outside temperature. The quality seems okay for an evaporative cooler, which is basically a water pump and an air pump inside a large metal box.
