Hessaire Evaporative Air Coolers keep you cool and refreshed whether you’re camping, grilling out, working in the shop, or relaxing by the pool.
Evaporative air coolers are a type of air conditioner that employs evaporation. A fan inside the machine pulls hot, dry air in through a wet media pad. The hot air quickly warms the top layer of moisture on the pad, causing the water to evaporate and dropping the temperature within the air cooler by up to 20 degrees. This cool, moist air is then expelled from the unit by the same fan that draws the hot, dry air in, creating a constant airflow through the wet pad and into the immediate area.
These devices don’t consume as much energy as a traditional air conditioner because they only operate a fan. The water for the pad is provided by an internal tank that needs to be refilled when the level gets too low to properly cool the air. Evaporative air cooler seems like a smart, money-saving solution for your home.
This compact HESSAIRE evaporative air cooler has a water tank capacity of 4.8 gallons and an airflow output of about 1,300 CFM, making it an excellent option for rooms up to about 500 square feet. The evaporative air cooler sits on four wheels, two locking and two nonlocking, allowing it to be moved with ease and stay put when in place. Change the direction of the airflow output with the adjustable vents, and decide whether to use the fan on low or high. There’s also an internal water pump to move water from the tank to the top of the cooler, ensuring that the pad remains soaked through until the tank requires refilling. This evaporative air cooler operates for up to 4 hours with a full tank. Alternatively, it can be connected to a garden hose for continuous use.
The Hessaire 3,100 CFM Evaporative Cooler is compact in size, pleasing in aesthetics and the performance exceeds coolers of a much larger size. This performance is achieved through expanding air-intake areas to the hi-density XeL50 rigid media. These coolers have 3 media panels instead of a single panel found on most mobile coolers. 3 panels allow more air-intake area and reduce pre-rotation of the air to the prop, which translates into lower static pressure and more efficient air delivery to the prop. The hi-density XeL50 media provides 80% more evaporation surface compared to regular density media. This means higher evaporation efficiency and cooler temperatures.
The popularity of residential open plans calls for a heavy-duty evaporative air cooler like this HESSAIRE model. It boasts a high airflow output of 5,300 CFM to cool up to 1,650 square feet. Alternatively, the cooler can be set up outside on a hot day to keep the patio or deck cooler—a big boon to folks using the grill! The evaporative air cooler sits on four locking wheels, making it easy to move around, and it can be set to oscillate up to 40 degrees. It features three fan speeds and an internal pump that can be turned off for fan-only cooling. The 14.6-gallon water tank only lasts for up to 4 hours, and the cooler can be connected directly to a garden hose for continuous use.
A evaporative cooler’s water tank is the key to chilling your room. When it’s empty, the cooler turns into a regular fan. The full-sized evaporative coolers in our guide have multi-gallon tanks that can work continuously for several hours without a refill.
An evaporative cooler’s reach is measured in CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute). The higher the CFM, the larger the area it can cool down. Each cooler we chose works best in a different-sized environment to cover all the bases.
All of our recommendations claim to be “portable,” but that’s because they’re set on wheels. These coolers can be up to 37 inches tall and weigh up to 41 pounds; yes, you can move all of them easily on a single floor, but don’t plan on carrying them up and down staircases too often.
If running your evaporative cooler outdoors, this rating shouldn’t matter but don’t overlook it if you’re purchasing a smaller unit. The dBA rating can be difficult to find on some products, but lets you know how loud the cooler will be.
The Hessaire MC26A offers immediate cooling in areas up to 700 square feet. Digital controls, quiet operation and simple set up make it a top choice for workshops, garages and covered porches.
The Hessaire 2,100 CFM Evaporative Cooler is compact in size, pleasing in aesthetics and the performance exceeds coolers of a much larger size. This performance is achieved through expanding air-intake areas to the hi-density XeL50 rigid media. This cooler features an ice pack loading tray that is designed to add colder bursts of air.
The Hessaire MC92V Evaporative Cooler is versatile and efficient. It packs a powerful blast of cool air via a patented winged prop. The MC92V features four panels of high-density rigid media on three sides, as well as oscillating louvers that quietly and efficiently spread cool air across a wide area. The toggle and turn-dial temperature controls make it easy for you to adjust between four temperature settings to obtain optimal cooling anywhere you take the MC92V Evaporative Cooler. The hi-density XeL50 media of this Hessaire evaporative cooler provides 80% more evaporation surface compared to regular density media. This means the portable evaporative air cooler has higher evaporation efficiency and cooler temperatures.
