The Honeywell CL25AE 6.6-Gal. 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 in any home or office. 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 230 watts of power 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. It has four durable caster wheels which allow you to easily roll the unit from room to room.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 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 4 out of 5 by Keeps me cool After putting ice in the ice bin (which is a super cool feature btw), my room gets significantly colder than the rest of the house. And that's only on the low setting. When the fan is on low, the nose is reasonable, but the higher settings can get a bit loud. I also don't mind the sound of the water pumping. It's like my own personal quiet waterfall. The water tank is large, so I only have to fill it up once a day and it will run all afternoon and most of the night. You'll have to fill the ice bin a couple times to keep the air cooler though. We'll see how it holds up this summer in the AZ heat. Just make sure to leave a door open or crack some windows or the humidity will build up. April 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cools 2 rooms Very good product to beat the heat, I set the water on the lower level or it takes up too much water during the day. Does a great job of cooling the living and dining rooms. I place it in front of the balcony screen door and it works well. The ice function really helps to drop the temperature. May 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a well engineered unit. We ordered this to replace an inferior cooler. Honeywell has done a great job engineering this unit, the permanent honey combed media is superior to the aspen pads in our previous unit and is easily cleaned. It worked flawlessly in a less than ideal situation, a windowless media room. The led controls and remote are great. Overall I am 100% satisfied with this cooler and HD's fast shipping September 20, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Roof-Mounted versus Portable Evap Cooler I used to have a roof-mounted evaporative cooler that sucked in air from the outside. When the air is blown into the home, it creates massive air pressure that pushes the warm air out the window. What prior reviewers have failed to address is that while evaporative coolers clearly do work in dry climates and clearly do cool down the air very noticeably, portable coolers cannot be relied upon to actually cool down a room. Let's say you have two open windows, and you hope that the air goes in from one window, gets sucked into the evaporative cooler and gets pushed out the other window. With a portable unit, there is a long list of things that can go wrong. When I open the window in my room, the wind usually blows the 105F desert air right into my room, so I get that hot air as well as the cool air from the portable cooler blowing at me simultaneously. Even on optimal days, the cooler does not effectively cool down a room, or if it does, anything larger than 50-60 sq ft is simply unrealistic. It certainly does not come close to being able to cool down 250 sf. In theory, if we could mount or position the unit in the optimal way, then it could achieve this, but realistically I'd think at least 80% of people are going to be disappointed with this product if they are used to a roof-mounted unit because they have the windows in the wrong places, the wind is blowing in the wrong direction, and so on and so forth. I have not found any use for the higher speeds. For me, it only makes sense to use the lowest speed and have it blowing directly at me. I have not been able to reduce the temperature in a room appreciably, but it cools me well enough when I am sitting or lying in one place. My unit has been leaking occasionally from the back. Recently it got extremely bad and the problem is that the honeycomb pad / filter is too close to the back. Apparently, the engineers who designed the unit were aware of the problem, and have built the unit so that the pad can be repositioned. You just need to tinker with it for a while. There are some plastic pieces that need to be popped out and repositioned (it's pretty obvious when you look at it). Now my cooler works without leaking. I use RO filtered refrigerated water because I have a system that I have already paid for and this should prevent mineral buildup. Occasionally I add chlorine because tap water contains that, too, and is helpful in preventing biological contamination just like in swimming pools. I use RO filtered ice cubes because I have a system already in place that has already been paid for. After three months of use, the pad / filter still looks like new and needs no cleaning or maintenance as claimed in the instructions. At $209 before taxes, it was a good spring-time deal from Home Depot. June 27, 2014
