Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Excellent value for its price
At the price point of $305, this unit can cover spaces as large as 850 square feet meaning that you can cover a large flat or even a small house with ease. This is achieved due to the sturdy 1540 cubic feet per minute (CFM) fan and unique-shaped water-moistened pads. Furthermore, the unit has oscillating louvers which distribute the air very evenly.
Pro No constant supervision needed
The water reservoir can hold 15.8 gallons of water meaning that the device can work for several hours before it needs to be filled up again. When the tank is almost full a built-in alarm will warn about that. Alternatively, you can attach a hose to the unit for a continuous external water supply.
Pro Suitable for outdoor use
Because of the weather resistant casing, this evaporative cooler can be safely used outdoors. The unit is perfect for decks and patios as it can throw fresh air up to 12 yards from it.
Pro A compartment for ice
You can fill it with ice for more rapid cooling.
Pro Has casters
The unit has casters making it easier to push around from place to place.
Pro Simple controls
This unit is an example where functionality is more important than aesthetics. There are no electric controls or LCDs. Instead, three dials turn the device on and off and set the level of the fan.
Con Requires occasional cleaning
The unit can develop a smell if not cleaned often. The cleaning process itself isn’t fast, as you need to unscrew the back cover to reach all the places that need to be cleaned.
Con Industrial design
The design is more practical than esthetical, so it looks very basic and boring.
Con Lacks timer
It doesn’t have a timer, so you have to turn the device on or off manually.
Con No remote control
The unit comes without a remote controller so if you want to change something you have to walk to the unit.
