About This Product

The Hessaire 900 CFM Evaporative Cooler is ultra compact and can go anywhere you like to hang out, 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. The hi-density XeL50 media provides 80% more evaporation surface compared to regular density media. This means higher evaporation efficiency and cooler temperatures. Patented axial prop is energy efficient and throws cool air farther. Molded with ABS resin, creating a strong, yet light-weight design. This model has a handle to carry the unit. 1-year warranty.

          Perfect for our backyard aviary
          This helps to keep our birds in the aviary “cooler” in the 110 degree heat! It doesn’t have a float valve, so I added that in order to keep the reservoir automatically filled with a hose. Of course, drilling a hole in the side of the reservoir voids the warranty, but that's not my concern. (Home Depot sells all the parts.) I’ll likely buy another for the patio.

            I didn’t die
            I almost didn’t buy this due to the reviews but if you filter the 1 stars you’ll notice it’s either people who don’t understand a product review and are complaining about shipping or people who clearly don’t know understand evap coolers. If you put this thing in the middle of your house it will cool for awhile then once the humidity goes up it will just be a fan. It needs the intake sides out in dry air. Kept my home coolish in an emergency 109 temp day after waking up to ac blowing warm.

              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.

              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.
