Answer: 
From the HD buying guide:
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:
1. Determine the square footage of space you want to cool.

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

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.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works very well I have a 1300 sq foot area to cool and it works very well. I wish it had listed all that it came with it (belt, motor pulley, motor mounting bracket and motor attaching clamps). I ordered these all separate as everything would be at least a week out and I wanted to have everything here to make the installation. Very well built and works great. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Paint covering is normal paint without any rust inhibitor primer to stop rust.. Since this uses water as the cooling agent, a person with any brains would realize that it should be painted with rust inhibitive primer, then a rust inhibitive paint....... BUT IT'S NOT. EVERY part is metal, which rusts. The screws are the first to go. Then the very thin supports for the upper frame. This thing rusted out so fast it was astonishing. The next time I buy one I will primer the entire thing with Zinsser rust inhibitor primer, then coat it with Rustoleum rust inhibitor paint. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE AT THE FACTORY. June 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well Been running this unit a couple of weeks now, and it seems to work well and certainly does the job. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Model Number has been changed The cooler works fine. I've noticed that the model number that comes on the cooler has been changed from 4001D to 4401DD. This might be a problem for anyone getting an energy incentive rebate through their utility company. I know that Rocky Mountain Power does not have the new model number listed on the approved cooler list yet. June 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cool summer The cooler is working great to cool my 950 sq ft condo. Great price. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Do you want to be cool this summer? My house is nice and cool. The evaporator cooler was so easy to connect. Make sure you purchase the down draft. May 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by false advertising! Although these types of units do work well the effective cooling from this unit at 4900cfm would be 1225 square feet for every square ft you intend to cool you need 4xs'the cfm unless you have high roofs then you need a little more April 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Evap Coolers 3 of the same model I have had three of the same model on a laundromat in Tracy California, I got only one season out of these, wraped them up for the winter and all of the bearings were rusted shut terrible so hard to deal with. April 20, 2016
