Product Overview

The Honeywell 470 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 250 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 280 square feet. Four 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.

Is this product will work in Oahu Hawaii . I do have a fan coil unit in my condo . But it is not cold enough . I just want to use this one for my bedroom , Only 200 square feet , is that will work ?
Asked by: Jenny
Hi Jenny! Good news! The Honeywell Indoor Portable Evaporative Cooler is designed to help cool medium to large room up to 280 sq. ft. This Cooler should absolutely help keep your room at a lower temperature. For maximum results, the Cooler is designed for use in non arid climates. Based on your location, you may need to run both the Fan Coil unit along with the Honeywell Evaporative Cooler to reach your desired temperature and humidity. I hope this helps. Thank you.

Will this unti cool a 80 plus degree room down by at least 5 to 10 degres?

My central AC quit working properly and only cools my house to between 80 and 85 degrees when it is over 80 degrees outside. I am looking for an alternative to cool my living room space by at least 5 to 10 degrees
Asked by: Echoes
It depends on the size of the room. I'm not sure about the 5 to 10 degrees. I use mine on the low speed and it does a good job, but I have body temperature swings. Sorry not much help.

470 CFM 4-Speed Indoor Portable Evaporative Cooler with Remote Control for 280 sq. ft. is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product For the Most Part I agree with other reviewers that the smell was plastic-y & unpleasant at first. It works itself out eventually, so don't let it be a sticking point about buying this product. Also, the hatch where the water supply goes is a bit difficult to open. Be sure to follow the directions about airflow, as it is very important that the cooler have plenty of fresh air to push, or it WILL just make the room hotter. I live in Sparks, NV, so the temperature gets extreme in the summer. On 100 degree days, even with the cooler on its highest speed setting, it's still a bit warm. However, this goes a long way to making the room more bearable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cool Cooler This portable evaporative cooler is wonderful. It works better than I expected. I have never even had to use it on anything but low. I am in a basement, but the temperatures have been 90 to 100 degrees lately. I would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from evaporative cooler Even though it was larger than expected, but very light weight and moves easily it is very efficient in cooling my grand room of 300 sq ft. I had to turn it down to low because at high it was just too cold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cooler Its easy to install,but very difficult to clean main filter. It's very helpful for room hummed,thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine. The item came fully assembled. The remote holder on the side of the unit is handy, but the remote itself is hard to read, as the background color on it is almost as dark as the lettering. Its easy to wheel around, as it has five wheels. The door which you open to fill it with water seems flimsy. I've read other reviews about the smell it emits. When I first "fired it up", I could see what they were talking about. I figured it was the smell coming from the filter. I sprayed one spray of "Haiku" (Avon scent), into the compartment where you put the ice, and the melting ice which dripped onto the filter brought the scent into the filter. I did this maybe the first two or three times I used it, and no longer have any smell problem. I love that the fan oscillates. It broadcasts the cool air back and forth across the room. It also has louvers which will direct the air up or down. It definitely can keep the air in my home in the low to mid 70's while it is in the high 90's outside. In fact, when it gets too cold in here, I just turn it off. It has 3 speeds, but I generally just keep it on low speed. I think that the more humidity in the air from the unit, the less efficiently it works, so I did purchase a de-humidifier, which I only turn on when it gets too humid in here. I don't have it on too often. The unit is somewhat noisy, but I would compare it with the sound of a fan, as that is what propels the cool air into the room. I just turn up the sound on the TV. If you think about it, even A.C. can be noisy. I have it in my "great room" (liv. room, dining and kitchen) (vaulted ceilings) and it does the job for me. Wouldn't want to get through the summer without it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from FAIRLY GOOD PURCHASE/DOES THE JOB & HOLDS A GOOD AMOUNT OF WATER, JUST KINDA BIG AND BULKY/HEAVY PRETTY GOOD DESIGN NOT TERRIBLY NOISY. KIND OF AN AWKWARD WAY/DESIGN OF FILLING IT I BELIEVE, AND THE DOOR IS A BIT CUMBERSOME...SOMETIMES THE ELEMENTS SMELL FUNNY, CAN'T QUITE FIGURE IT OUT. BLEACH PERHAPS , JUST A VERY SMALL AMOUNT, DROPS...IN THE WATER FROM TIME TO TIME??? THE WATER WHICH CIRCULATES FROM THE TOP IS PRETTY QUIET ALSO AND THE ABILITY TO PUT ICE IN THE TOP WITHOUT SPLASHING IS ALSO GOOD. JUST THINK THAT HONEYWELL HAS A BIT OF REFINEMENT TO GO THROUGH TO ENHANCE THIS PRODUCT TO MAKE IT A 5 STAR UNIT....MAYBE LARGER CASTER WHEELS ALSO A BIT TALLER ON THOSE AS WELL AS TO MOVE THE U IT SMOOTHLY AND MORE EASILY... I BELIEVE THAT THE BIGGEST DOWNSIDE IS THE OFF SMELL FROM TIME TO TIME WHICH IS RATHER AWFUL.HOWEVER IT DOES COOL THE ROOM EVEN AWAY FROM THE WINDOW.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Honeywell evaporative cooler Very dissappointed. The equipment doesn't blow fresh air not even with ice in the water compartment , I used in a single room very small and a barely feel the air fresh. I have two more coolers and I know what I'm talking about.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me... This system appeared to have all of the features I was looking for, including the ice tray, but I found it had more going against it. I expected and hoped for more out of this machine, but it did not deliver. It's very loud, even in the sleep mode. The demonstration video showed a baby sleeping. It's definitely too loud for that. It would be nice if it had a slower more mild speed. The size was manageable and it held a decent amount of water. As for cooling, it was fair at best. The machine had a very strong “plastic” smell that was emitted while in operation. The instructions said to run it for a couple of hours to remove the smell. I ran the machine for several days, but the very strong odor did not seem to weaken. The instructions were also incomplete. There is a user guide and a maintenance guide. While reading the instructions, there was a topic that referred me to the second booklet. The second booklet had exactly the same content referring me to the first booklet. The information was not in either of them. I returned the unit due to the strong plastic smell and lack of cooling capability.
