I bought a house in the mountains that did not have air conditioning. I was told that the temperature was much cooler in the mountains. However, I learned that it still gets hot here with many days in the high 90's and at times over 100. I bought this Luna Evaporative Cooler and was very pleased with its performance. It was lightweight and on wheels so was very easy to move around. It was easy to fill the water reservoir, and it really cooled the house down rapidly and kept it cool. It's a large piece of equipment and the fan at the highest setting is noisy, but it's well worth it on those unbearably hot days.
I bought this hoping to cool our condo (and pets) during the few days it gets hot by the beach in socal. It works really well. The last time I bought a swamp cooler which was gross and did nothing. This actually worked and had nice cool air. The only issue is our doors and windows slide horizontal, not vertical, so the air vent was tough to get in place. We rigged it to blow the air out but will need to make something better. Don't buy the screen door extender- it is not study and needed to be taped to stay.
