Customer Questions & Answers

Will this unit fit in my window?

I have a 21-1/2 inch wide opening by 45 inch tall window. The window slides side to side; not up and down. Would this unit be appropriate for my window?
Asked by: handygal
Under specifications they have the dimensions backwards. The window portion of the cooler I believe is 21.63 wide and 14.88 high. Your window opening as is would be a little narrow to work, but the slider window is removable. Then it should fit. After removing the slider from my window, It is a tight fit but it works (21 3/4"). So you need 21 3/4 inch or wider opening for it to work.

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.
Asked by: Toohot
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

But, it is a bad idea to take a simple tried and true swamp cooler and add a circuit board control with a remote. Mind went out twice, and I had to order the $50 circuit board and install it. Also don't get confused about the window dimensions. The width and height are reversed in there specs. Although the cooler worked well for nine seasons before the squirrel cage baring stated going out, I will try to find one without the remote. Come on people. Is ok to have to get out of your chair to turn the cooler on and off lol.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Don't buy this piece of garbage the electronics won't even last one season. Putting a circuit board in a swamp cooler is a horrible idea.Also you cannot hook a thermostat to this unit.The best units are wc44 and wc46 but home depot is so stupid they don't even sale them in the store. I wish home depot would quit catering to stupid customers that will buy this junk because they think it's neet that it has a remote. You won't even need a remote folks a thermostat would be of more value.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The remote control is great I ordered this cooler online and picked it up at the store and was in and out within 15 min, what a great experience. It was also very easy to install and had everything needed for the installation. This was a very positive experience . thank you Home Depot

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.
