Customer Questions & Answers

what does 4300CFM mean

I bought a 4300 downdraft cooler . what does these numbers stand for
Asked by: eloj
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. 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.

Who can install this?

Asked by: Margaret
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.

is this swamp cooler have a 17 3/4" hole for the down draft? Why do they not have motors?

Asked by: Debbie
Yes, that is the size of the opening. There are several different types of motors for a one size fits all. Different horsepower, one speed or two speed.

Will it fit my current space?

I need to replace my current swamp cooler, which is a Arvin Air ED4300 - will this fit?
Asked by: newbiehomeowner
I had a 41 year old cooler that I replaced with this cooler. I had a leakage problem that I had to repair and I had to make a new mounting base. Once this was done it was just a matter of placing the new cooler over the existing hole and hooking up the power to the pump and motor and hooking up the water supply. If your mounting base is in good condition all you should have to do is set it in place of the old cooler. I hope this answers your question.

4900 CFM Down-Draft Roof Evaporative Cooler for 1800 sq. ft. (Motor Not Included) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from My brand new cooler was damaged upon pick up at store. I was discounted 48.00 as credited back to... My brand new cooler was damaged upon pick up at store. I was discounted 48.00 as credited back to my cc. I was disappointed as I didn't like the idea of purchasing a new cooler to then look like the old ugly one on My roof. After cooler installed only 7 days up on roof running we heard a loud noise. I had to call out the handyman to find the stock belt that runs through pulley was defective in two spots. So I had to pay the handyman to go buy a new belt. So not too happy to start. However cooler seems to be running ok so far. Hope this experience gets better and remains so.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product and Easy to install My old cooler was still good to run but all the side panels were broken into many pieces due to rust when I did the maintenance in winter. Replacing all 4 panels will cost almost the same as buy a whole new cooler so I decided to order a new one from Home Depot as they had the cheapest price for this unit when I searched online, The unit came after a week and the delivery man was very helpful, he helped me to take it to the back of the home where I could bring it to the roof. This unit is quite heavy so you need at least 2 more men to bring it to the roof. When it was already sit on the roof jack you can handle the rest by yourself. Connecting the motor, water pump and water line were easy even it was the first time I did it. You may need other parts from Home Depot, depending conditions of your unit. In my case , I need both: --DIAL 18 in. x 18 in. Evaporative Cooler Roof Jack Model # 78317 --DIAL 3-1/2 in. 30 in. Evaporative Cooler Round-Corner Leg Kit, Model # 7805 The duct of this unit is 17.5 x 17.5 so this roof jack is perfect but one opening side between the duct and bottom pan is too small, you have to bend the roof jack so the unit can sit on top of the roof jack. Be careful on this side when secure the metal duct to the roof jack as the screw might puncture the bottom pan as I did. The 3 other sides are OK as the distance between metal duct and bottom pan are more than 3 inches. The roof jack should be secured to the roof first before letting the cooler sit on it. I did later so the job is harder as I didn't have much space to do it. Anyway, it was a good experience to do the installation by myself even it was the first time and I really want to share. The cooler runs perfectly to cool the house in hot days. Recommended to everyone.
