About This Product

The Hessaire 5,300 CFM Evaporative Cooler is compact in size, pleasing in aesthetics and the performance exceeds coolers of a much larger size. This performance is achieved through expanding air-intake areas to the hi-density XeL50 rigid media. These coolers have 3 media panels instead of a single panel found on most mobile coolers. 3 panels allow more air-intake area and reduce pre-rotation of the air to the prop, which translates into lower static pressure and more efficient air delivery to the prop. The hi-density XeL50 media provides 80% more evaporation surface compared to regular density media. This means higher evaporation efficiency and cooler temperatures. Note: This unit is NOT an air conditioner and therefore uses much less energy and saves more on electricity costs. It is best used in dry climates or open spaces. Leave window/door open to limit the rise of humidity and keep better air ventilation in the room.

  • High-density XeL50 media provides 80% more evaporation surface compared to normal density media
  • Direct connect to hose feature to enable constant water supply option to bypass having to fill water tank
  • Ideal for use in outdoor areas, not designed for use in totally enclosed spaces
  • Molded with a polypropylene resin, creating a strong, yet lightweight design
  • Patented axial propeller is energy efficient and throws cool air farther
  • Only costs $0.04 per hour to operate due to extreme power efficiency
  • ASDS (Air Swing Delivery System) provides maximum coverage
  • Set of outer vertical louvers you can manually position
  • Water tank holds 14.6 Gal., for a 3-4 hour run time
  • Features an oscillating design for maximum cooling
  • 3-sided pad intake area allows for maximum cooling
  • Most CFM delivered per $ of any evaporative cooler
  • Rugged poly propylene housing with UV protection
  • 1 Year Warranty

        Q:Does it need water connected all the time
        by|Sep 16, 2023
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  No. You can manually fill the tank through the front fill door, by hose or bucket. Use the water fill indicator to monitor water level.

        by|Feb 15, 2024

          A:  No. You can manually fill the tank & get about 3-4hr run time before it needs to be refilled. Or, you can connect the hose for uninterrupted, continuous use. There are also 2 fan-only settings (low & high), which don’t need water.

                Dear Valued Home Depot Customer, We have reached out to the manufacturer and their reply is, Thanks for taking the time to share. We're sorry to hear that you're not happy with your purchase. Should your have any questions or further feedback, please reach out to us directly at (256) 734-3003. We'd love to hear from you!
                  Really works!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We’ve had some warmer than usual days sneak into our Fall season and this air evaporator was perfect for the job. We had settled into the cooler Fall weather so the unusually warmer temperatures were not really comfortable for sitting outside. The Hessaire Evaporative Air Cooler cooled the area considerably to make it the perfect environment to enjoy the patio comfortably. Nice big, heavy duty wheels make it easy to move around and the hose connection made it easy to hook up. Out of the box we only had to attach the wheels and the hose hook up and it was good to go. Very happy to have found this product and I’m sure we will be using it for many years to come and not just for the patio. It can also be used to cool down a garage, which I am looking forward to trying. Love how easy it is to maneuver and how nicely it cools the areas - hassle free.

                    It was great as far as cooling the air but unfortunately it stsrted leaking from the reservoir 2 weeks after I purchased it. I returned it. I also found it was a bit too strong for my porch. Will get the 900sq ft one next summer.

                    Information
                    I will share with you as expert: Very good design and quality 3100 CFM is realistic and true. 950 SF is realistic and true. Powerful fan , I don't need to use med or hi . Fan works great even in low . You must to know how to used an evaporator cooler. 1- evaporator cooler works for dry weather If you have humidity don't waste your time and money. 2- if you want to use for cooling indoor, You must install it out of window . 3_ air must be go directly straight 4-keep open all windows just 3 inch

                      Works Great on Hot Dry Days!
                      These things work great on hot dry days on your patio. For example today in Texas it is 110 F and the relative humidity is pretty low (27 %). I measured the inlet and outlet temps on different speeds and it consistently dropped the temp 20-24 deg, entering was 110 F entering and 87 F leaving. The fan is pretty powerful as well. Be aware that these units will not do very well on humid days.

                        Not what I was expecting.
                        Like most of y’all we are having record temps and looking for options to survive. This unit running on cool faucet water cools air about 3-4 degrees alone below the outside air temp. I thought I would use ice and make it better and it did. Temperature drop was 10-12 degrees running on ice water. But it goes back to room temp rather quickly as in less than an hour. So overall it moves a lot of air like advertised but not the answer I was looking for to keep cool.

                          Great product.
                          Completely satisfying. A little bit expensive, but it meets my demands.

                            It lasted 2 weeks.
                            Bought on July 1, made it untill July 18, used lightly and pump is not working already. I can't recomend junk like this. It has nice features but 2 weeks of service before it needs repair is pathetic.

                              Just Beyond Impressed!
                              I bought this in June 2018. We use it every year with our livestock so it sits outside all year round. I've clean it and replace the cardboard inserts twice since I bought it including today and it fired right up. This evap cooler never stops impressing me and I can't stop raving about it. I paid about $100 bux less than the current list price but still worth it at this price point. My goats just love this thing.

                                Huge Temperature Change!
                                I placed this in my man cave (garage) and experienced incredible results. This cooler dropped my garage temps by 30° (see pics). Easy to assemble and works very well. I needed to adjust the routing of the pump hose in the tank as it was assembled with a kink in the hose. Once I figured out the problem, the cooling media gets nice and wet. The fan motor has great CFM. It's quiet and very smooth in operation. I connected mine directly to my house hose bib for worry free operation, works great!
