Product Overview

The Honeywell CL25AE 52-pint indoor evaporative air cooler offers an energy efficient option for cooling your home or workplace in the most natural way. Honeywell evaporative air coolers do not require power hungry components like compressors. The low power consumption 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 cooling medium to large rooms up to 300 sq. ft. Four fan speeds and oscillating louvers evenly distribute cool air through the honeycomb cooling media while the carbon dust filter cleanses the air. The unit consumes only 235-Watt of power on low and includes an automatic shutoff timer. The electronic control panel is easy to use and the remote control lets you operate your cooler from across the room. Plus, it has side handles and four durable caster wheels allowing easy mobility.

I always start out by filling the unit to it's capacity when filling it with the water as the amount used depends on the mode that you opt to use. It is wise to check your Honeycomb cooling media to determine if there are dust particles, etc. to be cleaned with a soft cloth, often especially if it is used constantly. Always use fresh water and drain when not in use for a period of time. Read Less

Answer: 
You don't have to put ice but if you do it the unit will perform a little better. You should maintain the unit by cleaning or drain the water every month. If you run the unit constantly you will need to fill it every several hours.

Answer: 
You're going to want to put ice in it to keep the air cooler. There is a significant difference. I put water in it around 2 pm and it will run until about 11 pm on the low humidity setting with the fan on low, and this uses about 1/2 of the water in the tank. My room is similar in size to yours. The frequency of cleaning is described best in the manual. It all depends on where you live. Hope this helps!

We got ours about 2 months ago; we took the honeycomb out last month and just wiped the dust off. This time when I took it apart the honeycomb stinks and due to our hard water, the inside of the cooler is very dirty.How do I clean it?

Answer: 
Hard water can cause mineral deposits on your honeycomb and it can be washed under fresh water. I would let it air dry completely before reinstalling it. Hard water will leave deposits in your water tank and it can be cleaned using a soft cloth dipped in clean water in which a very small amount of white vinegar is added. Be sure to rewipe with clear water.
it is wise to use only fresh water when in use. Read More

Answer: 
Yes - this will enable the cooler to operate more efficiently by leaving a window open facing and one in back of the cooler in back of the cooler for better cross-ventilation. I live in an arid area and this works for me.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Evaporative cooler Works well, better than we anticipated. - might be a little too cool - using ice not helpful as it melts too quickly and cannot be maintained with ease October 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Evaporative cooler This unit works well in my space to cool it down and add humidity which is nice with our dry climate. It is however pretty noisy even on low speed. Overall it seems to be a good value. July 27, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not my idea of an air conditioner High maintenance product having to fill the ice feature and water reservoir frequently on hot days and the cooling was minimal. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use, uncomplicated We were in the middle of a terrible heat wave in Northern California. We purchased this cooler out of desperation. It truly helped us survive the heat. We love the portability and ease of use. It offers everything that it promised. We would definitely purchase this product again. We have used it in our bedroom and office with much success. Our Catahoula hound "Goldie" loves laying on the bed in direct line of the cooler. August 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This Cooler Is A Great Buy The Evaporative Cooler needed no assembly. The direction for operation are clear and easy to follow. It has been wonderful in the Seattle super heat this summer. My large living room windows are on the west and when the sun is shining one can feel the heat coming off the glass. The cooler does a wonderful job of cooling my living room/kitchen combo. In fact my granddaughters think it gets too cold. The fan can be set to swing from right to left or blow in one direction. Using the fan only is adequate most nights. This was a great purchase. August 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes a hot house bearable This saved me on the days where it was 90 INSIDE! Ice makes it much cooler, but it does obviously make the air a bit more humid. October 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by swamp cooler Easy to use. Cools well. Wife thinks it is noisy, but it doesn't seem too bad to me. All in all, very helpful on hot nights if you don't have air conditioning. September 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JUST IN TIME! We ordered this cooler in anticipation of increased heat this summer. As temperatures soared to 109 degrees (normal for us is perhaps100 degrees at worst) we were agonizing that delivery was not scheduled for 5 more days when we were blessed by an early delivery on what was the hottest day thus far. We set it up... ran it all through the hot afternoon .. and it really WORKS! Granted, it is not an air conditioner, but if you follow the instructions you will find it beats the heat pretty darned well. Our Schipperke discovered it almost immediately and planted herself in front of the cooler for a nap. Set on low, it is effectively cooling our 300 square foot living/dining room comfortably. So, the people and dogs in our house give this a 5 star rating for performing as promised. July 2, 2015
