Answer: 
Tonji, for a small room, this unit will make the room cooler in a couple hours if the room temperature is around 80 degrees. However, it is not an ac, and in this temperature, it will make your room cooler. Just make sure that you have your room door open to the hallway.
We like the unit for now. It save us some electric bill during this time of the month. We just wondering if it will work alright

Check the cooler after 4 hours if it's full, It's better to be safe than sorry, also lift up the cooler to see if it's got some weight, some times the water level gauge sticks.

It depend on the room size and fan speed. You should get several hours with a full tank. Always look for the water level to be above minimum, this is the best way to keep it running well.

We have a windowless room that get's very hot. The description in the manual says this needs to be by an "open window or door." We would put this in the windowless room but keep the door open so it vents into the hallway (where there is also no window). Will this work with that setup?

Answer: 
YES, but there is a catch if you are using this evaporative cooling machine. You need to use the water from your reverse osmosis system (if you have one). Otherwise, it will be damaged very soon. There is too much mineral in my water system, and it will plug and deposit too much stain in the machine.
I recently use the water from my filter and that will cut down on the cleaning as the factory suggestion

Answer: 
The nice thing about evaporative coolers is they don't transfer heat, they cool the air by evaporation, like when we sweat so no heat is created by compression to be transferred outside the area to be cooled. You do consume water vs transferring energy.

Answer: 
if you need ice its not worth buying ice melts fast !!! you need 4x the cfm as the footage you wish to cool in order to get optimal cooling can get away with 3xs :) if you have vaulted ceilings you need to factor in a little more but this will be the only way you will be comfortable

Answer: 
While it is not required, ice is an option if you want to enhance the cooling of the unit. Some models even come with a designated compartment for ice (though this unit does not).
Keep in mind though, the unit relies mainly on the evaporation of water to absorb the heat of the air, so it will work best in hot, dry conditions. All evaporative coolers work this way.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase for these hot days! Very portable and easy to use. Just add water and it will go for hours cooling the room. August 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lousy!! I measured it as using way more power than the information claimed. It didn't seem to cool a small area very well at all, but I didn't get to test it very well since the power button became inoperative after using it only a few times!!! August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor quality I purchased 2 of these last July One arrived defective as it made a horrible noise when turned on. I took it back to the store and they made it an easy return for me. I decided not to get another one as I purchased a bigger one but I keep the second one that was ordered with this one. I used that other one couple of months or less than that. Once I was done with it, I empty the water compartment and stopped using it. As summer is back, I attempted to use it again, filled the water compartment, plugged to electrical power, turned it on and an it started to make an scary loud noise. It broke, and sound the same as the first one that arrived defective. I didn't even last a year and now I have to deal with contact the manufacture, pay shipping fees. I really hope that Home Depot review and consider consumer's feedbacks and demand their vendors to have better quality control of their products. June 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cools about 35 sqft for proper cooling from an evaporative cooler you generally need 4xs the cfm compared to the sqft you are trying to cool you can get away with 3x with adequate cooling this unit would need at least 3-400cfm to cool 100sqft so this is a total piece of junk you are basically just buying a humidifier please people do the research find the formula for the space you need and stay happy May 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good investment for greenhouse No assembly required other than battery fro remote. Small, and easy to use. It is very quiet. I use it to keep some wheat-grass plantings in the greenhouse cool. (they are in a special enclosure). Only drawback is adding water every 12 hours, but adding water is simple. As summer heats up, I will see if this unit will have to be replaced with a larger cooler. June 23, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by There is bubble noise when the evaporate button is set to on The product quality is kind of poor. This product sometimes makes noise when the evaporate button is set to on. When it made a bubble noise, I found there was bubble exited from the clear drain vinyl hose below the honeycomb cooling media. This problem dues to the hose is mounted on a curve. If you cut it shorter, the hose will be pointed straight down into the floor with out any bubble noise. April 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This Air Conditioner is more like a fan We basically paid $150 for a $25 fan. It doesn't cool like an A/C. March 15, 2016
