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.

Answer: 
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/.

I wouldn't recommend it. You should at least build a frame to hold the cooler a few inches off the ground.

Answer: 
I'd suggest that rather than have it sitting directly on the ground you should probably make a small frame for it to sit on, probably made of 2X4's. It doesn't need to be fancy, just something to allow the drain fitting to clear the patio surface.

As for choosing a swamp cooler versus an air conditioner, it largely depends on the humidity of the outside air as well as its temperature. Our humidity here in Nevada is quite low most of the time, so a swamp cooler is an easy choice. Also, swamp cooler's cooling effectiveness tends to decrease at temps over 90 F. It's been near 100 here the last week or so, and we've still used the cooler but at times have had to supplement it with the air conditioning. Naturally, one of the big advantages of swamp coolers is that they require a great deal less electricity to operate. The only power consumed in a cooler is the blower and water pump, whereas with an A/C unit, it not only has to run a blower but also a compressor which gobbles the watts.

I don't have a picture of the window, sorry, in answer to "DeGeezer's" request. But the window is part of a bay window. The window will slide to the right covering part of the bay and stay there, leaving the 21-1/2 inch opening for the cooler to fit in.

I'm assuming that your window has two panes, each of which is about one half the overall width of the window opening, and that one of the panes slides in front of the other. If this is the case, I'm afraid that the actual opening would be too narrow for the cooler duct to fit through.

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 Solid product This unit is a solid product. It replaced the same unit that we purchased over 10 years ago. That is saying something, because the average life of a swamp cooler around here is 5 years due to our "dirty" power and hard water. Also, the price was 50% cheaper than anywhere else. The service I received from Home Depot left a lot to be desired, but this review is about the swamp cooler.

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 Nice fast and easy to install Easy to install and took less than two hours from start to finish, works great the house is now very comfortable.

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.
