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.

There is a warning sound when the water is too low, however this only occurs when set in the COOL mode.

You don't have to put ice in it, however if you do be sure you add it to the top of the unit where there is a receptacle for it. There is a warning sound when the water is too low, however this only occurs when set in the COOL mode. 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!

The unit is too heavy for me to lift when there is watwr in the tank. I don't have anywhere that I can wheel the tank to a location and pull the plug in the bottom to drain all the water out !! Since emptying outlet on tne bottom is only an inch or two from the floor, there is no room to put a bucket or pan under it for the water to drain into !! I'm hoping someone has found a solution to the problem !!

I thought of the same thing. I live alone and elderly hence my dilemma is wondering how I can empty the tank. Would it be ridiculous to suggest something in the line of a hand-pump similar to a turkey baster?

Sorry, but I don't understand the answer given below. What is a "120 V" plug? Can it be plugged right into a regular wall outlet or does it need something special? Thanks.

Answer: 
The reference to a "120 V" plug means it uses a standard 120 volt plug used in US homes for most, standard receptacles (and not, as referenced in the question, the 240 volt special plug used by larger AC's, water heaters, ranges, dryers, etc.). It will plug in and work in a standard US wall receptacle.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
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 Works Fine Read the reviews before we purchased it. Knew there would be an odor but truly it does go away after a couple of weeks and it is not unpleasant -- not nearly as strong as the aspen pads we used to use in rooftop evaporative coolers. We got it as a back up for our master bedroom in case our Mastercool (rooftop evaporative cooler) ever developed problems (why does that always happen on a week-end?) but we've been using it almost daily in our large TV room which was added on as an afterthought by previous owners and has no cooler ducting. That room is larger than the max. square footage for this model but we've never had to turn it any higher than the lowest setting. If you don't mind filling the water pan (I used a bucket and it only takes 10 minutes max.), this is a really good unit. Price from Home Depot and free shipping were a bonus. July 7, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not very good! It was too noisy and did not cool down the room at all. Putting ice cubes in it helped with the cool air, but the ice cubes would melt within 5 minutes. It also made the room very humid. September 27, 2015
