They can lower indoor temperatures by as much as 15-20°F. Evaporative coolers have low installation/maintenance costs; use 75% less electricity; no ozone damaging refrigerants.

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 Would totally recommened! Awesome swamp cooler,cools the whole house..Recommend to anybody in a dry climate area.Installed in wall and was a bit of work but well worth it. June 24, 2014
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 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. April 10, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great performance and good value Had this unit for 3 years, in southern california in the high desert it does great!!! Had to replace the blower motor half way through the 2nd year, It cools our 2 story 1800 sq ft house very well. just open a window a little bit at the opposite end of the house and an upstairs window and it does VERY well. Our hard water is very harsh on the pads and the pan, we use CLR once a month to clean it. costs about 1/4 of the the cost of AC. VERY HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!! June 18, 2012
