This cooler has a better fill level design than the older model I had. Much easier to see the water level. It is easy to operate and is not really noisy. I do wish it had an automatic shut off when it runs out of water but the water tank is sufficient for5 hours or so. I am in a very dry climate so it does work very well.
I live in a hot, dry, desert climate and it gets to 115+ degrees in the summer. I like evaporative coolers because they reduce the price of the power bill for central air, but also add moisture to the air. The problem is that I go through these coolers every several seasons. This year I decided to just get "cheaper" ones, since even the expensive ones didn't last. Soo, I got this cooler about a month ago, and it works great. It does NOT cool the house, but it definitely keeps the living area much cooler, and adds the needed moisture. I save a lot of money using this cooler. It works great and we haven't had any problems with it. It's slightly clunky, but less so than others ones I've had. Overall, I would definitely recommend this cooler.
Cooler worked brilliantly on the first few nights, but stopped working after the fifth night. The electronics appeared functional -- just nothing else worked. No fan. No cool air. Nothing. Overstock did send out a replacement immediately, so we'll see how it goes. For the hassle I've already been through, I probably wouldn't buy again. My initial reaction when the first unit arrived was, "Oh crap, Overstock sent me a returned item." This was based on the chords not being wound properly and parts of the unit that were already installed, which -- according to the directions -- shouldn't have been. Anyway, second unit looks better. Will update if this one dies too.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Looked fine
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The first one lasted exactly eight days, with five nights of usage. Product died on the hottest evening of the summer -- so far.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Since the site didn't say it would die after five nights of use, I would say it's innacuurate
Thank you for your question. The NewAir AF-351 Portable Evaporative Cooler will cool a room of 300 square feet in a room with standard 8 foot ceilings. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 5, 2013
300 square feet and eight foot ceilings is a stretch. Right now it barely cools my 150 square foot bedroom two degrees.overstork01 on Jul 9, 2013
I need to cool my wine room from 65 degrees F to around 57 degrees F. Will this product meet my needs and how does it work...ice pack, cold water, etc and what amount of daily maintenance is required?hoyt2 on Feb 17, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, this unit will not provide the cooling that you desire. Evaporative coolers do not have the option to select a temperature as they are not air conditioners. These units add moisture to areas where they are being used for personal cooling not air cooling. They will not bring the temperature down significantly and will require proper ventilation such as open windows or open doors. Lack of proper ventilation will add too much moisture in the room.
Maintenance on the unit will be to add water when it is low, clean and replace filter when needed. This unit does not come with ice packs.
