Product Overview

The Honeywell 176 CFM indoor evaporative air cooler offers an energy efficient cooling option when the air is hot with low humidity, such as desert areas like the southwestern United States (recommended humidity level is 60% or less for maximum efficiency). Honeywell evaporative air coolers do not require power hungry components like compressors. The low power consumption (only 50 watts) translates into significant savings on energy bills compared to using air conditioners. Just unpack, add water/ice, place near open door or window, plug it in, and use. This unit is ideal for indoor use in open environments with adequate cross ventilation up to 100 square feet. Multiple fan speeds and oscillating louvers evenly distribute cool air through the honeycomb cooling media while the carbon dust filter cleanses the air. For those living in more humid climates, consider portable air conditioning units or window air conditioners.

How long will it cool a room with the water container being filled?

Asked by: Tonji
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 during the heat in the summer. If it will not work on the temperature over 100, we will have to turn the ac on through.

Will this work for a windowless room if it is place with the back to the open door?

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?
Asked by: Julie
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 on the manual.

Does this unit require ice to be added to it, to cool?

I've noticed some lower priced units require ice to be added to the unit in order for it to cool. Does this unit require the use of ice for cooling?
Asked by: spikedblonde
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

150 CFM 3-Speed Portable Evaporative Cooler for 100 sq. ft. is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better Than Average Evaporative Cooler I had the 1st one less than a month. One morning, I noticed that the water gauge indicator had not changed even though I used the cooler for 2 nights. I then tapped the cooler, and the gauge indicator dropped below the minimum mark. I decided to return the cooler because the cooling mode no longer produced cool air. Apparently, the cooling mechanism had run dry without water and broke. I bought a 2nd one, and it did not work upon arrival. I am currently using the 3rd one. The reason I bought this model is that its design is not conspicuously "ugly" in comparison to the manufacturer models. I like the simple design, and it matches my room decor.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Honeywell Cooler not what I expected This unit will not cool as advertised. Puts too much moisture/humidity in the air. Only cools if its right beside me. Will not cool my tiny office. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great... Turn off water pump and set timer for 30 min to dry the filter and it does not get that sump pump odor Simple shut down procedure and it is an excellent machine. Turn off the water pump and set timer for 30 min to dry the filter before actually turning it off with the power button. Follow that and the filter does not get that sump pump odor we Coloradans have come to associate with August summer cooling. All good

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item! I live in a dry heat climate & have used a window air conditioner for the past several summers, however, it's heavy & hard to install & uninstall plus blocks my view from the bottom half of the window. I spend most of my day in my living/dining room area so decided to try this evaporative cooler and I'm so glad I made this purchase! It works fine for the area, is lightweight & easy to move around, so I can use it in the bedroom if I want. I'm amazed at the cooling power of this cooler; it keeps both of my rooms comfortable even in 90 degree heat, and even though the area is larger than 100 sq. feet. I'm very happy with this product.
