Questions & Answers

Is this cooler really loud or just a little?

Is this cooler really loud or just a little?
Asked by: ja502
It's a little louder than a standard appliance such as a washer, drier, or dishwasher. My sound level app says about 50dB.

Are these units recommended for humid climates, like south Florida?

Asked by: treborjant
Evaporative "swamp" coolers create the impression of cooler air by adding moisture to moving air. The higher the ambient humidity is, the less effective the unit's perceived cooling. In my experience, high humidity is insufferable enough without adding more moisture to it.

Can this evap cooler installed in a sealed garage space use a thermostat to control it?

Asked by: js2712
The standard switch can be replaced with a thermostat-controlled switch. But in a sealed space, since you're adding more "wet" rather than more "cool," wouldn't a humidistat make more sense?

Can it be used in a body shop without putting it in a window?

Asked by: Tony
Yes, but then it's less a cooler and more a humidifier. Without taking in fresh air to moisten and exhausting the hot air through a window or door farther away, you're just adding moisture to a confined space. It will cool, but not very effectively. MOVING moist air is what gives the impression of cooling.

2800 CFM 2-Speed Window Evaporative Cooler for 600 sq. ft. (with Motor) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 86.

I bought this cooler 2 days ago and installed it in the living room the same day. We've been having a heat wave here in Northern Arizona with temps over 100 so I needed some fast relief. Window install using provided hardware was very straightforward and simple. It took me about two hours by myself. Yes, this unit includes the water pump (I wasn't for sure on that till I got it home). My little one bedroom house is about 750 sq ft., and this cooler has made a VERY noticeable difference... Ahhh ;-) What I really wanted to respond to was the noise factor that others have mentioned; on the first day I noticed that this unit was quite a bit noisier than other evap coolers I have lived with, but then today i was inspecting the plastic louvres on the front grill. They are a little loose and are made that way so you can turn them to adjust the direction of the incoming air flow. However, they do vibrate with the wind pressure coming through the unit. This is where the excessive noise is coming from. So, if you buy this unit, just play with the louvres on the front grill till you get them set into a position where they don't vibrate. I used a little piece of scotch tape on one blade to hold it in place and that seems to work fine. This unit does meet my expectations and I would buy it again as well as recommend it to a friend ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate cool! We replaced an old rusted out cooler with this one. Not only is it smaller than the old one, it's quite a bit quieter as well. It isn't super quiet, but not loud either. Does a good job cooling the upper level of our house- 3 bedrooms. Would recommend, especially with the rebate from the utility provider, made the net cost just over $150

It is a replacement for the same Champion unit that was eleven years old. It does the trick and works for me by not taking the humidity out of the room while it cools. Home Depot was a great way to purchase it. It was cost effective and easy.

My handyman installed it yesterday, and it immediately began to cool my 737 sq. ft. house. It makes a whooshing noise as the air flows through it, but it's not annoying, at all. It took JH 1 hr 45 min for installation---from the time he dismantled the old one to the time he handed me the bill. He was able to install it w/o help. The cooler is suspended from two chains near my back porch, as the old one was. The front portion enters the house from an opening in the wall of the laundry room. The air control consists of a dial which is easy to turn.

Several surface dents; Plastic directional vanes required reinstalling; fan assembly not seated correctly with 1 screw not tightened; fan blades bent out of round and wobbled excessively. Fixed all but dents. Shouldn't need to fix a new item but with delivery problems didn’t want to try returning.
