Evaporative coolers are rated by the airflow the cooler can move through a space. This is measured by cubic feet per minute (CFM).
Use this formula to calculate the CFM for cooling your home:

Use this formula to calculate the CFM for cooling your home:
1. Determine the square footage of space you want to cool.
2. Multiply this figure by the height of your ceilings.
3. Divide that number by 2.
4. The result is the CFM rating for the evaporative cooler you need.
Example: If you have a 1,500 square foot home: 1,500 square feet X 8 ft. ceilings = 12,000 ÷ 2 = 6,000 CFM.
You need a unit rated at 6,000 CFM or higher.
Residential, whole-house models range from 3,000 to 8,500 CFM. Read Less

Answer: 
CFM is Cubic Feet per Minute which is the volume of air it delivers per minute. You can find charts that will tell you what CFM capacity you need for you home depending on the Sq Foot size of your home and location such as Mid-West, South West, East Coast etc.

Answer: 
4300 is the cubic feet per minute that the fan blows. The higher the cfm, the more air it moves. This is a very important number for evap coolers, because the higher air flow means more air through the mats (more cooling).

Answer: 
If you're replacing an existing evap cooler, then anyone who works with electrical systems can do it. If it's a new install, you'll need someone who can cut a hole in the roof, then install the ducts, run electrical and finally the plumbing for water.

Answer: 
They do not come with motors because you need to choose the correct motor for your home size and geographic location. I think this is preferable over selling the unit as a whole with more motor and a higher price than you need.

Answer: 
It should work fine. You'll need to measure your old unit to see if it's the same size. It needs to fit on the base properly and the height should also be close - if the new one is too much taller, you may need to do some rewiring to get the wires to reach.

4900 CFM Down-Draft Roof Evaporative Cooler for 1800 sq. ft. (Motor Not Included) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice product but doesn't fit opening. This item is what it says it is. It's built well and should keep us cool. The problem is however...the opening that attaches to the roof's opening does not match up. On ordering this item, no choice is made for different sizes on the bottom of the unit. The cooler is the same brand and size as what we have that has worn out after 14 years. So buyer beware of this problem. So, we have it on our roof but have not been able to attach it yet. We are constructing an adapter so it will fit properly. We've loved the old one up until it started to rust out. If it had fit or give us size options on the downward draft fitting, we would give this high marks. Just be careful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great purchase We ordered a swamp cooler, when we got it home and uncovered it, it was damaged I called home depot and told them, explained I would keep it but felt I should get money off the cost, after words they did give me a gift certificate. So I am happy with home depot. And the swamp cooler works great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bushings disintegrated after 12 months 2 weeks. No help from Home Depot or Champion Paid $1000 for this to be installed. Worked fine for 12 months and 2 week. Then the fan stopped. Looked at it and the bushings, and they've disintegrated. Called Home Depot, "Sorry, we don't service what we sell. Call Champion" (ie: we don't stand behind the products we sell) Called Champion, "Sorry, we don't honor anything after 12 months" (ie: we don't stand behind the product we make and sell, after 12 months and 1 minute)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from evaporator cooler this is my second cooler of the same brand, the first one lasted 25 years. To replace the old cooler with the new cooler was a very easy one as there was very little modification to do. just moving the water supply from one side to the other. Just took a couple hours to switch out. This cooler cools just as fast as the old one usually about an hour to cool my 1600 square foot home. Plus its a lot cheaper than air conditioning. I use a two speed motor so that I have a high and low speed to cool the house. Also it puts humidity in the house and gets rid of static electricity in the carpet in this dry climate..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome cooler and easy installation-cools home great! Had to replace a Champion 4800 CFM cooler for a mobile home and this was a direct fit. Ordered online and truck delivered in about 5 business days - delivered to driveway on a shipping pallet pre-assembled. Unit comes with everything you need including float, drain discharge kit, motor clamps, motor belt, wiring, and pulley, just not the motor itself so save your old motor or order a new one with the unit. Removal of the old, rusted cooler took longer than installing the new unit. I chose to disassemble the new unit and bring to the roof in pieces and worked great. Installation was easy and only took minimal fuss to set float level and and ensure drain and water inlet were tight and leak free. Cooler operates whisper quiet with 1/2 HP motor but does have "new smell" until the pads rinse out. Changed water after an hour or so of use and smell was all but gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's not an easy job, but well worth the effort. My 20 year old cooler died a very dramatic death. (shooting out chunks of rusty metal and grey dust one very hot night). I had nursed that old rust bucket for ten years. So it was time for a new one. It was easy removing the old cooler (just turn off the power at the panel and shut off the water supply first) Then disconnect the electrical and water at the cooler, also I removed my old motor to reuse in the new cooler and then all it took was a little twisting and the old rusty unit came right off. I was left with a bit of a problem. The old roof jack (the thing the old cooler sat on) was very badly rusted and was not going to be able to be used again. I looked around town for a replacement and found it costs $247.00!!! I went to Home depot and found the universal duct Dial Model 78317 for much less. One thing to note the Dial Universal roof jack is not built to carry the weight of the cooler so you have to buy and install the leg kit. Dial Model # 7805. I bought both for about 1/3 the price of a new custom roof jack. Also you have to bend a tab on the universal duct to connect to the Champion cooler but that was easy and it tells you how in the instructions of the universal duct. The Champion cooler was a good choice because It comes apart. I was installing the cooler alone so I took the cooler apart on the ground and was able to lift all the parts on the roof by myself and re-assemble the cooler in-place on the roof. Install the old motor, hook up the electrical and water and I was back in business. I also like that Champion has a listing of all the parts in the manual so you can order a replacement by part number. It took a couple of days to replace but the new cooler runs a lot quieter and cools the house a ton better.
