Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cools nicely Admittedly, it's only been installed a day, but wow did it make a difference in my parents' 1,400 sf house in just minutes. Mounted it in the window at the end of the hall and it blows all the way down and into the living room. Open the front door a crack on the other side of the house and you feel a nice gentle cool breeze. Runs very quietly too. The old unit was also a Champion and it lasted around 20 years. I wasn't comfortable with the thin chains and mounting hardware so had a platform built instead. Float assembly didn't look too durable but it works. May 31, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 June 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great cooler for the money We just purchased this a couple of months ago and it has performed very well this far. While we haven't had the chance to test it under real hot temps, during those days when the weather was quite warm it almost ran us out of the house since it put out so much cold air. Granted, when the summer temps arrive in a month or so it will surely be more challenged, but I'm certain that it will be up to the test. The cooler puts out a good bit more airflow than our previous one, even with the same HP motor. Also, the remote is a nice addition making the cooler's operation more convenient. Bottom line is that it is definitely a worthwhile investment for those of us who are fortunate to live in areas of the Country where the humidity is low enough to allow the effective and efficient use of such an appliance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value for the money First, we want satisfaction and peace of mind when buying a product and next we need to preserve their use. This swamp cooler, in the extreme heat of Las Vegas, provides my mobile home (12 by 60 ft) with a quiet and shooting cold breeze. I do choose the low speed. My suggestion would be to coat parts of the interior with a black spray avoiding rust. Mostly at the top of the panels where the water drips Do buy a copper line and you will not have to change the plastic ones every two or three years. Finally, grease the bearings of the wheel with adequate oil every month. The unit needs to be mantained well so to avoid rust like watching the dripping water not to be overflowing over the metallic side panels because after the painting is gone it will rust. Adjust the pads insideso the dropping water stays within them. Money well spend! June 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keeps the house cool This cooler was a replacement for an old one that rusted out. It's outlet is exactly the same size and shape of the old one, so I reused the fillers I made a decade ago. Installation was easy, there have been some changes, mostly relocation of internal components. My wife loves the remote control. She can control the temperature easily. I recommend this one for anyone that lives in the desert like us. June 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Happy Buyer Purchased as a replacement for my old "Swamp Cooler" that was quitting after 10 years of major use. Bought the same make and model, because of the trouble free usage I had with the old one. This one is quieter and much improved including a remote control. It cool the air throughout the house around twists and turns. Couldn't be happier. April 28, 2015
