After much review, and a forgetful buying approach delayed by poor reviews, did I decide months later when it was evident the Arizona heat had won once again did I decide on this KuulAire Evap Cooler. I grew up with a swap cooler and knew exactly what to expect, so after reading many horrible reviews and manufacture specs, and comparing against real swap coolers CFMs, did I know what to look for. I purchased this because my house has central A/C, however my add-on office with a 1970 White Westinghouse A/C does not---and was just as expensive to run as the house A/C. With two computers in the office @ 900 watt supplies they contributed at least 8 degrees F of heat to the room and this mini-swamp essentially negates that. If you logically consider the air movement in your house, crack a window for escape, and experiment where to place this, you can leave it on the low setting and finagle a modest 8 degree F drop(from indoor temp). I also at times appreciate the 60ish percent humidity (58% outside Monsoons) for the body. I also recommend the AcuRite Digital Weather Station, Model:02038W, to keep tabs on its performance. Running at full speed, 2nd setting, this only consumes 220 Watts of power, not much considering that's 3 x 80 watt bulbs. Also the controls are touch and remote is included. Replace a few lights in your house with LED or CFLs and you got yourself a free cooler air.
