Summer is here and it can get HOT! Especially at my parents house where they have no AC so when I was asked to check out the Artic Cover Evaporative cooler from Home Depot I knew it would be perfect for their house and when we went over there so we did not roast in the summer heat! My parents house has the main floor, the basement and the upstairs (which is their bedroom and bathroom) and the upstairs gets insanely hot and it was able to help cool their room and easy to set up.
Here is what I think of the Artic Cove Evaporative Cooler:
– The unit was very easy to set up.
– Adding water was not a problem
My overall opinion of the Artic Cove Evaporative Cooler works to help cool a room but should not be confused with an air conditioner that contains a compressor. I am sure the Artic Cove Evaporative Cooler uses much less electricity than a portable air conditioner.
The Artic Cove Evaporative Cooler is in reality a humidifier that has area for ice. The water going over the ice and then being blown out into the air gives the cooling effect. The colder the water the better the cooling effect so it is best to fill the tank with very cold water and add the ice right before use.
The controls are easy to use and versatile and the 3 fan speeds are adequate.
If you are looking for the Artic Cove Evaporative Cooler to be an air conditioner you will be disappointed. If you are in a low humidity area and want to cool while adding humidity the Artic Cove Evaporative Cooler will meet that use.
