Product Overview

This Evaporative Air Cooler, Humidifier, and Fan is versatile, lightweight and economical. The Cooler easily rolls from room to room for use anywhere in your house or office. This Air Cooler shoots a stream of air with oscillating louvers, to evenly distribute refreshing cool air. Can also be used as a fan or humidifier if temperature is not an issue. Plus get the air cleaning benefits of the ionic air purifier. The remote control allows you to easily change settings. The Air Cooler works by endothermic reaction (a reaction that consumes heat), so this evaporative Air Cooler sucks air through a wick saturated with water. As the air flows through the wick, some of the water evaporates into the air, consuming the heat that was in the air. An air stream is then blown out the front of the unit and is considerably cooler than the current room temperature. This is not an air conditioner and therefore uses much less energy. Note: This unit is NOT an air conditioner and does not have a compressor inside - air coolers will not lower a room's ambient temperature. Air coolers are designed for spot cooling. This unit is best used in dry climates or open spaces. Leave window/door open to limit the rise of humidity and for better air ventilation in the room. Add as much ice as possible and set unit next to you for best effect.

I use mine to cool off my chickens, see no reason why it would not help with the iguana, humid conditions, a little moisture should not effect it.

Answer: 
Maybe. The wet medium on this model is very thin, If your outside temp in below 80F and the enclosure is small, it might be ok. Also, no evap cooler works well when dew point is much above 50F [regardless of relative humidity]

Shoule the wick/fitler move? It looks like it might move through the water collector to insure the wick/filter is always wet. Mine doesn't.

Answer: 
Having had house sized evap coolers, the water is pumped up and dripped down the meduim. I assume that this is the way this one should work too. My problem is that the medium to too thin to provide much cooling. Also, evap coolers do not work well when dew point is above 50-55F regardless of Relative Humidity.

No, the pump pushes water to the top of the filter and the water runs down the filter. One problem with "swamp coolers" is that they are not very effective in high humidity: above 60%. The system works on the principle that the water on the filter evaporates thereby cooling the air being pulled the filter.

The system works on the principle that the water on the filter evaporates thereby cooling the air being pulled the filter. High humidity greatly hinders the evaporation process so the air isn't cooled as much as people expect. When it's 90+ deg. with high humidity, you'll be doing well if you can get a 10 degree temperature drop through the unit. You can add ice to the tank; it'll help but this isn't a replacement for a refrigeration air conditioner. Read Less

Should there be anything connected to the top of the water pump which is located inside the unit?

While in cool mode, water shoots out the top of the water pump. I dont know if that was normal or not because i noticed two tubes inside the unit near the pump, one of them clear and the other was orange with what looks like a connecting piece at the end of it.

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 74 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great! great features! I've read lots of negative reviews on here about this product. I was hesitant but still bought it because the price is better than what I would pay for a portable ac unit. To my surprise it works great! If the place is very humid you may need additional help, which is why I also purchased a window fan. When humidity is up to 80% and the dew point over 70, it was hard to keep the place cool as I didn't use it in an open space, what works best is filling the item with ice and have it blow directly onto you. the cold air is comparable to an AC unit, the only difference is you have to refill with ice. When the humidity and dew point drops it works perfectly on fan mode. On a normal summer day (mid 80's), I use just the fan mode, it works very well in keeping the space cool, even so, at times I would turn it off or put it on a lower setting as the air would blow a bit to cold for my liking. Generally you can use the product on fan mode only for comfort, if the temperature goes up to high 80's - 90's and it very humid I would recommend using the cool mode and add ice. I also like the option to move the louvers up and down and the swing option. I would use the product all year round. I also like the timer option, and the Ionizer. When the cool mode is not in use I would recommend draining the water out and using the fan mode. Keep the water tank dry to prevent mold or stagnant water(I haven't experience mold growth in this product). Overall I would recommend this product to anyone who doesn't want to pay the high price of a portable AC unit and want a comparable feel of an AC. The only thing I disliked about the product is that the opening to get water or ice in is a bit small. Water can get in Ok, but it would be better to use small pieces of ice. Also the door opening to the water tank is a bit flimsy, if I tried to put in huge pieces of ice the door would detach but can be reattached. August 22, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy Does not cool anything. I'm not expecting it to cool any large areas as it is not designed for that but the air coming out of it feels rather warm instead of cold (or cool). Actually just an ordinary fan does a better job. Putting ice in it instead of water improves the situation a little but again, just buy a fan and you will get the same cooling effect. I know how well swamp coolers can work and I know that on "cool" setting the air should actually feel cold. Again, nothing to do with it's size, just that there is no cool air at all... Very disappointed. Returning the product! September 11, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Returned it. After running it for a few hours (with ice added) I could not feel any difference in the temperature. Besides, the plastic smell and the noise of the fan were annoying. I tried the cooler the next day in the attic room and again I did not notice any change in the temperature after running it a few hours. I returned it. I was very impressed with Home Depot's delivery however. I got the cooler within two days with regular, free shipping. Also the return was easy. No hassle. I will try a portable air conditioner instead. October 13, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product for the Price Very easy to use, it is already assembled from package. Cools small areas such as living room, bedroom, etc. Keep in mind that is a 100 SQ. FT., that is why it is less expensive compared to other portable coolers with a bigger square feet capacity. The quality of the product is good, in fact I buy this item because we were giving this product at work during summertime to cool out work area, which is inside a manufacturing and mold injection machine. I liked it and I decided to buy one for the family. It does helps to reduce electricity cost, sometimes the weather gets a little high and instead of using the AC, we use this product and keep the living room cool. April 21, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by More of a fan than a cooler First when its arrived it didn't cool at all, so i have noticed that the water doesn't fall from the back and filter was dry. I opened the back and find out the tube that was suppose to pump the water to the top of the tower was disconnected from the pump. That alone its poor manufacturing sign and lack of quality control, but the problem is once it was install and even if added ice in the reservoir it wont really cool off the room. You will sense the air slightly cooler than fan, but its not what i grew up. I think they somehow messed up the water connection with the filter in the back. I remember back then water fell in a funnel that feed the filter and air sucked through the soaked filter. These guys have it designed that the water fall in between filters in mid air, so the air sucked between five narrow stream of water, which is poor distribution of water. while the right way is that water must fall onto the filter and air get sucked from the wet filter. October 20, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Just another fan. It does not cool a small area any more than a regular fan does. It may help to moisten the air a bit if you live in a dry weather area; other than that, this is just an expensive fan. October 27, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by when totally iced cooled 1.3 degree at 40% humidity I set it up outside - good thing because the soft rubber plug for the tank leaked water overnight. Even though I had it totally iced as in the instructions, with a digital thermometer I read only 1.3 degree cooling compared with the air going into the intake. Humidity was 40%, maybe that's too high for this unit to work. The fan feature works pretty well though. Anyway, I brought it back to Home Depot and they were very good about taking it back without any problem. I also used the "free delivery to store" option to get it, that went well too. August 4, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 50 -50 I purchased two of these units for spot cooling. One unit is working as it should, but the other had a bad fan motor right out of the box. It ran for a while, but would heat up and stop running. Home Depot accepted the return with full refund. I kept the working unit but would not purchase another since the construction is marginal. Go with a more robust model... September 22, 2015
