Help relief a dry heat space
Fast delivery, came with a remote control and instruction manual in Spanish, French and English, it’s light and very easy to move around, just added water to the tank on the back, once power-on the panel light up and air flows nicely (vanes swing up and down) helping dissipate slowly the warm air in the garage/room space where I set it up. This cooler reminds me of my young old days of big “cooler” that needed to be cleaned every year (scrap and paint all the side panels). My car temperature is around 104F so I could estimate the room is around 100 degree. Just to be sure, I turn on the heater and it surely feel the heat come out directly from the appliance.

        Great Price for Dry Climate Cooling!
        I live in Utah and we have very dry summer air. This evaporative cooler works very well in our climate. IT WILL NOT WORK IN A HUMID CLIMATE. I have tested the air coming out of the unit by using my infrared thermometer and it usually cools the ambient temps down by about 6-12 degrees (12 degrees if you have the tank loaded with ice, 6 degrees if it's just room temp water). For only pulling 100 watts on high this is an excellent way to cool your personal space but save on energy costs. The water tank lasts a full night of cooling. Very easy to move around since it has little wheels. The cooler moves a lot of air and with the addition of cooling a bit it sure makes you more comfortable! Would recommend to anyone in a dry warm climate!

          Best buy ever!
          I loved this Evaporative Cooler, in addition to having a beautiful designer, it adapts perfectly to the decor, it is still very practical with a remote control. And I love when I put essence to perfume my whole house. I recommend.

            Easy to Use & Move Around
            I love that it is easy to use and move. The buttons and functions are simple and it moves from room to room quickly and simply. The design fits in with my own home decor which I also really enjoy. The fan works well, I usually use it on medium or high speed with the water/swamp cooler feature on. Really helps to cool my house down and my dogs love it while I'm gone during the day. Very happy so far (Ive had it about 3 weeks).

                  Awesome cooler for dry hot climates
                  This cooler keeps my room very cool. Living in Nevada were we experience dry heat this is a must!!! I have used it for two weeks and so far I haven’t had to use my ac unit so far. My kitty loves it and it helps cool her off as well. It’s very quiet and doesn’t disturb my sleep at night. This is a nice product to help keep your electricity bill down in the hot summer days.

                      My family and I have really been enjoying this cooler. I really appreciate how portable it is. I’m also in love with the 3 fan speeds and the humidifier/ cooler setting. Truly helps with my eczema skin and my son’s allergies. Truly feels like the ocean breeze. A must buy!

                        We just received the fan and couldn’t be more impressed with its ability. It is relatively compact compared to other units with its features. The white and grey color combination is stunning in our living room. It’s removable water tank provide impressing cooling with its 3 cooling speeds, 3 modes, and 7.5 hour timer. The wheels make it extremely portable and way to move around different spots of our home. We can leave it to cool our living room or point it directly to one area for direct cooling. We are definitely ready for some hot summers with this amazing fan!

                          Must Have During Summer!
                          Now that temperatures are blazing here in California, I can’t live without my new Evaporative Cooler! So easy to set up, just add water, plug in, and turn on! Cools the room quickly, especially if you use the ice pack that comes with it! This also works in our patio actually! It’s portable so it’s easy to move from room to room! I can’t recommend this enough! It’s a must have for the summer months!

                            Kept the room cool.
                            My house does not have air conditioner, it just has a rooftop Evaporative/swamp cooler. We do not use the rooftop swamp cooler as it is a pain to set up and take down. It also leaks. So we have been surviving the heat with just fans but wanted something more without the expense of AC. So I decided to try this portable Evaporative Cooler, to see if it could keep the house cooler. It was easy to set up and fill up with water. The unit was much quieter than my fan which is pictured next to the cooler. I really like that it has wheels to move from room to room. I am also able to lift the unit so I can carry it upstairs if needed for sleeping. The timer will be great for sleeping. This cooler arrived just as it was getting hot here. My husband was busy putting together a shelving unit for me and started to complain that it was hot in the house so I turned on the Evaporative Cooler. The room was about 250 sqft and it felt cooler. The air coming out of the cooler was actually cold. I liked that it cooled the room without air blowing in my face. The temperature outside was 90 and this cooler kept the room that we were in quite comfortably. When I stopped to take a break from working and sat still for a while I felt cold. When I placed the ice packs in the bottom, the air that came out was very cold. I will be using this instead of my tower fans as it does a better job with less noise. I also like that the cool air can be felt by all in the room and does not need to be placed close to a person to feel it. unlike my tower fans that would only be felt in half the room and blow air in your face.

                              Best Mother's Day present ever :-)
                              I love my new air portable evaporative cooler!! I have been wanting one of these for awhile because living in the California Desert can get pretty miserable in the summer! .This unit is way more affordable than using central air and uses 75% less energy plus keeps my house just as cool as central ac. I also love that it is eco-friendly, all natural and needs no harmful chemicals to operate. This unit is incredibly powerful and quickly cools an area of 250 sqft. We just roll it into whatever room we need it, plug it in and it instantly cools the entire room. I'm also impressed with how quiet this unit is and you barely even notice it is on. Amazingly it requires about the same amount of electricity as needed for a 100-watt light bulb so this is going to save us hundreds in electric bills this summer. These coolers work best in low humidity climates so we are fortunate to live in an area we can use this and have the opportunity to save on electricity with this. The only month the humidity is high here is in August but all the other months this unit works perfectly. I also like that it has three fan speeds and two operation modes so I can easily choose my cooling options according to the weather. .The unit even comes with an optional ice pack container to make the air even cooler if needed. I haven't needed the ice container yet because the unit alone has been keeping our rooms pretty cool as it is so far. We would definitely recommend this new air portable evaporative cooler to anyone who lives in low humidity climates and wants to save hundreds in electric bills over the summer months.

                                I suppose that because it was so humid at the time that I used this product, it failed to cool the room. It probably made the heat worse. Had to bite the bullet and go for an actual window AC unit because this product didn’t cut it. So if it’s humid in your area, this won’t work for you.

                                    Cool an over-heated office space
                                    I have an office space that has full sun exposure most of the day, so it heats up while the rest of the house stays relatively comfortable. This unit is perfect for an office space and introduces some welcome humidity to the room. The ice packs added to the water reservoir make a big difference in the cooling. Understand this is designed as a one room or small space unit and works perfect for that application. It has a nice remote and will run up to 7 hours on one fill - runs pretty quiet. Has worked perfectly for my needs.

                                      Did very little to cool down my room and I think the humidity was too much for a smaller, enclosed space even though a Home Depot employee suggested it. It worked just as well as my usual box fan, so I decided to return it.
