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.
Hope this helps. Read Less

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. My question was really about what to do with the top section of the opening. Some say to put plexiglass in. I'm not sure I would do anything like that Read More

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
I'm not aware of the existence of any ready-made stand for this unit. It does, however come with the necessary hardware to support it from the wall surrounding the window.
As for the vertical window, the cooler will fit providing that the width of the window opening is at least as wide as the output duct of the cooler.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 78 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Thus product was out in our concessions stand. The night we put it up, the night was a hit. The employees were cool all night in 107 degree weather August 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by high speed does,t work warranty sucks warranty sucks had for 2 months high speed went out homedepo won,t repair they want me to hire someone to fix unit factory just as bad i would not recomend this unit August 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wish I had done this years ago this evaporative cooler replaced two window air conditioners that were aged and I didn't really want to go the hassle of installing them again for this summer. Reviewed the descriptions and reviews online, made the purchase at the store where they were helpful with assisting me load it. I installed it that afternoon. It is wonderful, even on the hottest of summer days. June 29, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hard to access panels, water line connector in bad location I had a 20 year old Champion evaporative cooler that I replaced with this same size updated model (per Champion this is the replacement). The older one had easy to use push in levers at each upper corner of all 3 panels. Just push in and top of panel falls gently forward then you grip the edges and lift panel out. Even a 61 year old handicapped woman could do this with great ease. The new one is screwed in so you have to get your drill screw driver out , keep your arms elevated to with heavy drill and unscrew both screws (per panel). The panel does NOT gently fall forward. there is a slot at the bottom for one hand only to lift up the panel. I am 5'3. I had to get a step ladder out to get higher than the slot in order to pull up. The panels sticks. with as much force as I could muster it still won't lift up so I had to call the neighbor over. this is the same on all 3 panels. Then the water line insert area! the old one was located at the back right corner. where it would not get bumped. The new one is on front right corner so anyone walking or squeezing by bumps it. No doubt the connector will be become loosened and the tube bent over time. THe water lines that come down from inside roof were not aligned and did not run into the V channels but out in between the pads and louvers, not getting the pads wet. these tubes are very hard plastic and can not be pushed even a little bit toward the inside so as to aim into the V channel, at least not with 61 year old arthritic hands. I had to get pliers to push them in, then lift panel back in place (UGH see above) to see if water was now going into correct location. also the float was set to high so the water drained out the overflow tube - yet another removal of the panel. The unit it self seems to work well but as far as ease of simple maintenance I would give it ONE star and not recommend it. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Froze us out of the house!! If you need one of these this summer for a window be it vertical or horizontal opening, this baby is the way to go. Yesterday it was 90 outside here in Reno NV and inside the 1930's home I rent was 67 degrees. Everything was great about this, packaging, product, performance, everything. June 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 22, 2015
