Product Overview

Evaporative Coolers for Arid Climates
What Type of Evaporative Cooler is Best for the Climate I Live In?
The Honeywell 1700 CFM indoor/outdoor evaporative air cooler offers an energy efficient cooling option when the air is hot with low humidity, such as desert areas like the southwestern United States (recommended humidity level is 60% or less for maximum efficiency). Honeywell evaporative air coolers do not require power hungry components like compressors. The low power consumption (only 150-Watt) translates into significant savings on energy bills compared to using air conditioners. Just unpack, add water/ice, plug it in, and use. For outdoor use it is weather resistant, UV protected and has an air-throw up to 9.4 yards. For indoor use, place near an open door or window in an area up to 610 sq. ft. with adequate cross ventilation. For those living in more humid climates, consider portable air conditioning units or window air conditioners for indoor use.

Unit outside to cool inside?

Asked by inPrescott July 2, 2014
5
Answers

I would assume that would work fine, but I'm guessing it would not work as well as if it was indoors, near an open window or door.

why is this rated "commercial" and not residential? and how much assembly is required?

Asked by Bernie April 6, 2014
5
Answers

It is rated "commercial" because it can be used indoors and outdoors and can be plumbed to a continuous water source; it is also very high capacity. Having said all that, I use it in my bedroom to keep my dog cool on warm days and fill it from the top from a 2-gallon container.If I remember correctly there was almost zero assembly required; it comes almost ready to use. Wheels and grille covers were all in place on receiving the unit, basically you take off any wrapping and packaging, unwrap the cord and plug it in to ONLY use the fan. To use the swamp cooling feature, simply open the top door and pour in enough water to register on the sight-glass float to lower-right of front grill. NOTE: this white tubular indicator may not move up until about 5-6 gallons (of the 10.6 gallon capacity) have been added. The fill hole is a little small, about 1/2" in diameter, so it takes a bit of patience to fill this unit from top. The ice tray can handle about 2 cups of ice cubes and makes a sudden blast of cooler air when you really want it. Enjoy~!

How is the noise level for a patio setting?

Asked by Jimbob May 10, 2018

Answers

if it is turned on the low setting, it should be fine. If turned on high, you would need to talk louder than what is probably normal or be close to the person you're talking to.

What are the safety features of this equipment?\

Asked by Tart0721 May 9, 2017

Answers

the only thing I've have seen in safety it if you don't have a hose connection in the house and your filling with a pitcher of some sort it have a lip so it doesn't get to the electrical stuff, and it has its own power surge when you plug it in. My kids 10 and 13 have filled it up no problems.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This unit is a bit bulky but is very effective to lower ambient temperatures in hot outdoor areas. It's easy to move around with the lockable casters and only weighs about 30 lbs. This cooler can also be used indoors to remove hot air making it cooler inside. Don't confuse this cooler with an air conditioning unit because it's not. I would suggest getting this evaporative cooler if you live in a climate that's hot and dry and are going to use it outdoors. I plan to bring this to my condo in Las Vegas where temps can frequently exceed 100 degree's making it hard to sit outside on the fairly large covered patio for a prolonged period of time. I tried it out at my home in Michigan on the deck before it got too humid and it performed as described! You can really feel the difference in outdoor air temperature within minutes. You can fill the cooler with 10.6 gallons of water or you can hook up a hose (hose connector included) for a continuous supply of water which is what I would suggest. I like that you can add ice to keep the water cold. (see pictures for more details). There are also louvers in front that can be adjusted up or down and independently of each other. If you live in climates where the humidity is high in the summer, this cooler will not really perform well. It is also stated in their information that it works best in the dryer, less humid parts of the country, like the southwest. I've used "misters" on my patio in the past but they had a tendency to get everything wet so this unit is a welcome change for cooling the area I plan to use it in.

Great Product For In The Shop, House, or Yard

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This cooler is a great product. One does have to remember that it isn’t an AC, the temperature of the air is dictated by the temperature of the water you’re running through it. Obviously, if you keep it in the shade and run cold water, you’ll have the equivalent of an AC. The power louvers are a great feature. Instead of a “one lane draft” that cools/humidifies one side of the room while depending on separate fans or air exchange to catch up to the other half, the louvers help considerably to widen air flow path. The water tank is a good capacity for the size of the unit. The casters make it easier to move with a full water tank. A 600 sq ft capacity isn’t bad at all for the size of the unit. I would suggest multiple smaller units such as this one, for individual work areas, against one of the larger units that can cost upwards of $2000. I would suggest this cooler for anyone with a shop that they use in sections. For example, an 80’x50’ shop is 4,000 sq ft. If you use half of the shop for parking a boat & camper or toys, but only use the other half, 2,000 sq ft, for projects you can easily use 3 of these to place in different spots for just over $1,000, versus a larger port-a-cool that would cost twice that. Overall, a great product for home or work, for a good price.

For my garage...

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
There are several options for garage cooling, however, being a garage, portable and easy is what usually works the best. This little swamp cooler does the job. If you aren't familiar with swamp coolers, they are very popular in the desert climates.. dry air. They work by pulling air over a water soaked pad and blowing it into your room. Yes, humidity will increase. That is how they work. This one in particular is larger than I thought it would be. It is on caster wheels and glides well on the garage floor. Even full of water, it moves easily. There is a hose connection on the side for continued use in an outdoor area, which will self regulate the tank level. One reviewer said it wouldn't make sense to run a hose through your house - good thing you don't have to as there is a water fill in the top. You can also add ice to the top so as it melts, the colder water from ice melt will enter the tank and therefore cool better. The unit I received is a 3 speed cooler, although it says 2 speed. There is the option to turn off the pump altogether and use it as just a fan as well. There is a swing option to oscillate the fan (back and forth) and the louvers are adjustable up and down - the two sets move independent of each other as well, so you can direct half the air flow up and half the air flow down if you want. It's not a super quiet unit, but also not overly loud and annoying either. The water pads are serviceable, and usually with other swamp coolers I have used, I replaced or cleaned them annually. If this kind of cooler will work in your dry climate, I suggest this as an option for general cooling at a fraction of the price it costs to run an A/C unit. Water is relatively cheap, and the electricity to run this is nowhere near a compressor A/C unit.
