Works as described


It does work the way it is described. The problem is you cannot let it set in a warm room without replacing the warm water to cold, in order to get the results.

Cool or humidify, that is the question


Fan feels good. But room gets humid. In extreme heat I can't take it.

Exceeds All Expectations!


Evaporative coolers are only as good as the user is knowledgable. They are not air conditioners and cannot be used the same way, but if you read some of the information about evaporative cooling, and you live in the right climate, this cooler will...

Not worth the $$


I purchased this item thinking that it would help with the dry hot summers in Colorado. The machine did not lower the ambient air temperature, but if you stood directly in front of it you would feel a cool breeze. I did not find the product helpful in...

Excellent product


Our Port-A-Cool is doing a great job cooling down our hot, stuffy master bedroom allowing us to get a better night's sleep. It was easy to set up and you could tell it was working from the moment you turned it on. The gentle gurgling sound it makes is...

Excellent product

Kind of big and loud when on the HIGH setting. We liked the 3 speed fan and swing action to keep the whole room comfortable.


While this is NOT an air conditioner, it kept our 16 x 20 3-season porch (elevated, no foundation) temp. at 83 degrees when it was 99 degrees outside. We wouldn't be able to use the porch during this hot period without this unit.

Works Very Well in a Dry, Non-Humid Climate


We use this to cool our bedroom (190 sq ft) and it does the job quite nicely. It keeps the room comfortable until the outside temperature exceeds 95 degrees for more than 3 hours, then it remains cool, but not as much. DO NOT BUY this product if you...

Don't Buy


I like that it has a remote, and the unit was very easy to set up. If the day was not terribly hot, in the 80's, it did make me feel cooler. It did not lower the temp in the roo'm, it just blew cool air on me. On hot days, in the 90's, it didn't blow...
