Honeywell - Portable Indoor Evaporative Air Cooler - Gray/Black

Chill out with this compact, portable Honeywell evaporative cooler. The 5.3-gal. water capacity minimizes the need for refills, and five speeds and an adjustable humidification level let you adapt it to any environment by pressing a button. This Honeywell evaporative cooler has an eight-hour timer and an automatic low water alarm for worry-free operation.

Note: This unit is not an air conditioner and does not have a compressor or condenser inside. Evaporative coolers are designed for spot cooling and will not lower a room's ambient temperature. This unit is best used in dry climates or open spaces. Keep a window or door open to limit the rise of humidity and for better ventilation. Add ice to the tank and set the unit near you for optimal results.

      Love this cooler!

      Have had this unit running almost every day for about 2 months and absolutely love it! As others have said, it's well-worth the few minutes it takes to read the instructions to make sure it's used properly - otherwise, you can end up with a hot, very muggy environment. I love the "swing" feature, which keeps one from feeling like you're trapped in a wind-tunnel, also the compartment in which ice can be added to make the breeze even cooler. Has a large water reservoir which usually only needs to be filled once in the morning and again in late afternoon or early evening. I move it to different rooms of varying sizes, but primarily have it in a room that's approximately 10' x 19' and has southern and western exposures and, even on the hottest days, this unit keeps the air cool and very comfortable. I highly recommend this product!

      Awful air cooler

      Posted
      nothappy

      Bought in BestBuy. If you want just a fan, this thing is perfect. But if you want to use it as an air cooler you won't get what you expect. After we put water and ice in it the smell was horrible in the room . Like a wet dog in the room. We let it run for couple hours but the smell was the same. I wanted to return but it was too late, the BestBuy didn't accept it after 15 days. I called Honeywell company and asked to replace this item. The answer of a client service department was: " Just add vinegar and the smell will disappear ( what means they knew that there is a problem with this model)". Also they sent us a new filter, which didn't help. To make a long story short, this air cooler is not good. Don't waste your money.

      It takes about 7 gallons of water to get to the max fill line. I think it takes about 4 gallons just to get to the min fill line. It has a "funky" smell for the first day or too which it states in the manual. Too much work to fill with 3-4 gallons of water every day. Also you need to clean the water out every once in a while. When you need to store it you need to drain the 4-5 gallons of water and clean the unit. It does keep you cooler than a good fan but fans are cheaper, less bulky and less work. Ended up getting a Dyson tower fan for $250 (they normally go for $400). Also got the Honeywell Quiet Set tower fan for $60.

      My husband and I purchased this as the temps were starting to rise this summer. We liked the idea of having something that is portable and a bit more energy efficient than an AC unit. We were a little skeptical but it works great. Like a fan but colder. It is especially helpful for hot nights. We have slept great. The only draw back is that you need to stay on top of making ice and it does need to be emptied periodically so it can dry out to prevent it smelling mildewy. Very glad we made this purchase

        Hi, We appreciate hearing about your experience. One thing to note about the application of Evaporative Air Coolers is that they are ideal for dry climates with humidity of less than 60%. They also require windows or a door to be open for cross ventilation to allow the warm and cool air to circulate. Feel free to reach out to us so we can recommend a unit that'll work best for your situation. Please give us a call at 1-800-474-2147 between 8:30 am and 5:30 pm EST Monday through Friday or send us an email at usinfo@jmatek.com so we can help. Thank you. JMATEK

      Not to Happy

      I actually returned the merchandise because it just flooded my carpet, when it's on, it goes on and off and blows a lot of water outside. The water gauge was not too visible that I overfilled it with water that wet the carpet. I was so unhappy using it so I returned it just in time 14 days.

      Cooler ends up smelling like rotten eggs sometimes BUT that's very normal with swamp coolers (hence the name swamp cooler). It does it's job, wish it was a bit cheaper when I bought it but other than that it'll cool your room, make sure you have adequate ventilation for it to work optimally.
