Honeywell - Portable Indoor Evaporative Air Cooler - White

This Honeywell CL25AE indoor evaporative air cooler features Honeycomb Cooling Media technology to ensure optimal cooling performance and a noncompressor system to provide an energy-efficient design. The oscillating louvers disperse cool air evenly.

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.

    Good powerful fan that is a little noisy

    I wanted to cool a room without an air conditioner that had to be placed in a windowsill or be connected to a vent to one (much less without the energy costs). So I opted for this, what is also known as a "swamp cooler." It is not super huge, the fan on it is strong, and it can oscillate, which is nice. Adding water to it makes a slight difference, but not much. Adding ice increases the slight difference just a bit. It is pretty loud for what it is, so if you want to use it when you are sleeping, that might be a problem. I have not been able to try it when it is really hot as I received it at the tail end of the recent heat wave. The price is decent when you can get it on sale, the energy consumption is good, and it can be used outside as well. It would have been great if it had a heating element to it as well so it can be used in the winter like other devices. If you really want to cool down and maybe feel a little cold, this is not the device for you.

    We ordered this to keep our basement cool during the summer months and it works famously! It's extremely large and somewhat noisy, but nothing to extreme. When it's full of water it's kind of difficult to move around but again, not a deal breaker by any means. It's on wheels so you just have to give it a bit of a shove to get it from place to place. We considered springing for the more expensive units that are double the price of this one but we are thrilled we went the cheaper route as this machine works great at half the price. It doesn't look as sleek and fancy as the others but who cares if it works great, and it does!!!!

    I must have got a dud. I returned it the next day as It spat water & drenched the carpet. I bought an Arctic Cove EVC500 instead. The Arctic Cove and Honeywell share some parts - the water fill door & ice tray area are identical. Honeywell has a water level indicator but the Arctic Cool does not. The Honeywell is a bit smaller and has a (harder to reach) drain plug underneath while the Arctic Cove has a drain plug at the bottom of the back wall. The Honeywell filter is held in place by 4 screws while the Arctic Cove filter hinges out without need of a screwdriver.

    If you live in a very dry place, the evaporative cooler is the perfect solution for hot days. Cheap to run, easy to move, all you need is water and it cools down a room quickly and efficiently. Not as chilling as an air conditioner, of course, but plenty good if you just want to take the curse off the heat--not run around in turtlenecks in summer. And it's way more portable than a so-called portable AC unit. LOVE it!

    Our A/C went out in a small office at work. They were desperate so I ordered this unit online from Best Buy. Apparently it cools their small office better than the regular A/C. I have since purchased two more just like it for other areas at work.

    The fan is wonderful. However you have to keep an outside door/window open or the whole room gets damp. If you are ok with that, it would be worth a try. The fan on it is really nice. We ended up returning this for a portable air conditioner.

    The product worked, and some of the other reviews warned it didn't meet their cooling needs. I agree, used it for a small bedroom on a warm LA summer night - the unit was fairly noisy but our biggest issue was it just didn't cool the room down enough.

    I've got to say I was more impressed with this than I thought I would be. It's definitely not a substitute for an AC, but it definitely provides a much more comfortable atmosphere than having a fan!
