Im in Palm Springs, Got thru triple digits thanks to Port-A-Cool Kuulaire!
This unit is awesome. Ive had a few different units over the 15 years living in PS, and this unit is absolutely the best we have purchased. I have an industrial evap cooler, but it just didnt get to some spots. This bad boy took over and literally saved my kids and got us I through this extremely hot summer , days with temp 116 + degrees. I needed to contact the manufacturer- Never in my many years, have I ever delt with a more professional, curteous, informed, genuine company. They stand by their product, Employees seem educated and dedicated to customer satisfaction. no BS. I would purchase products from this company again and again.

breaks down
This unit is okay, but does not cool effectively. After a few uses, water started spitting out the front of the unit. I did get a replacement from the porta-cool, but it was a lesser value unit. These units aren't that great especially if you have hard water and lots of Caliche.

Keeping me cool!
Wouldn 't you know...the hottest summer of the century and my air conditioning has gone out and the land lord doesn't have the funds to fix it! I purchased this cooler as the best option for the funds I had....and it's working very well. When it's over 100 degrees it's not cold in my house however it keeps it down to about 80. I'll take that any day. On normal days it keeps the house about 76. i'm very happy with that!

Great product! does a excellent job for a unit its size & nice features too.
Received this unit in just 3 days! took it out of the box, read the "quick setup" instructions, filled with water and .. BAMB .. nice cool air swirling around the room. Living in Nevada, this unit is just perfect for our environment. I'm using it in my garage/workshop and it keeps the interior temp in the 70's while outside it's in the mid to upper-90's. Light weight and may great features. Thanks for a great product and a reasonable price!

We bought this unit because we could not fit an air conditioner into our windows. It works fine when the house is already cool but don't expect it to cool your house down on those 90degree days. makes for a hot and humid house.

The setup was very easy! The unit was light in weight but well constructed. It performed as advertised. I would use the evaporative cooler in a dryer climate for which it was designed. I returned the unit for a portable a/c unit. It performs very well! I am happy with Air N Water in the manner in which the exchange was handled. I will use this company in future product purchases.

works as advertised
I am very glad I have this cooler. In fact, I have two now, but that is because it works as advertised. If I had had some $500 when I bought the first one I probably would have gone with something else that would cool my entire apartment. Mind you, I think this product does a good job for it's design. I have an apartment with 4 rooms (not counting bath), and each room is approximately 400 sq ft, so this cooler will cool one room at a time. The trouble is that I have no way to isolate my living room from my kitchen, so when the overall temp gets very high on hot days (which it does) then this cooler does not really do as good a job. Now that I have two, I can keep overall temps in the entire apartment lower and am having much more satisfactory results.

Does the Job.
It's rather larger than I expected, only a bit smaller than a mini-fridge. I haven't owned it long enough to maintain it by cleaning its filter, but it does gobble down the water at the rate of about a gallon an hour at low speed and near-minimum water flow. The reservoir holds 5 gallons. The controls work precisely as they should and set-up is quick and easy. Some users have complained of noise, and I can see why. There is a powerful hum from the pump and the fan but it's not at all irritating -- almost soothing. But it IS loud enough so that, if you have a TV or stereo in the same room, you'll need to boost the gain. Don't expect it to produce cold air or to cool off a normal-sized living room, because it won't. The breeze is slightly cooler than room temperature and is noticeable if it's aimed directly at the user. I mean, it's not very powerful but it's still minimally effective. I live in the desert. The humidity is low and the summer temperatures frequently reach 100F or more.

This product is handy & portable
This unit cools nicely on low, med & high, but it is a bit noisy. It is cool on just fan but gets colder when you select cool. This is an awesome unit for a room that needs that extra help cooling, however when in cool mode...the unit seams to put off heat & humility from the back out the unit. I feel that I got my money's worth...all in all it's a great lil unit.

Simple operation, mobile
I live in an old, poorly insulated mobile home, in the high desert of eastern Oregon. I probably need a bigger unit or an actual air conditioner. However, this evaporative cooler works totally as advertised. It will drop my temperature at least 8-10 degrees, insufferable to tolerable. The price was what I was able to afford, as I am doing other remodeling projects, too. It is light in weight, mobile, made of plastic, but appears to be strong and well constructed. It ran right out of the box. Adding water is simple. Easy for a technophobe to handle.

Does not cool, only humidifies
I bought this product to help cool my house during this hot summer. I wanted a more economical and "greener" option than an air conditioner, so I thought a swamp cooler would be a good choice. I had prevously lived in houses that used swamp coolers, and had liked how they worked. I live in a very arid climate (about 10 inches of rain a year and very low humidity), so again, an evaporitve cooler seemed the way to go. However, this evaporative cooler does not cool. I have noticed that my house is no colder when using it and the relative humidity skyrockets, creating a less comfortable environment. I would not recommend it.

Don't waster your money on this product
If you want a humidifier, it works great but if you want it for cooling (as I did). It only works if you are sittiing right in front of it. It did nothing for cooling the room. Using a regular fan to move the air around worked as well as this product in trying to cool the room

I am very pleased with my purchase
I purchased a similar product 5 years ago while living in Southern California and was quite pleased. I recently moved to Central Arkansas and live in a rather large olde Southern home and one of the rooms (TV room) because of its location on the west side of the house and it doesn't get cool especially during mid-day. So, I researched the brand that I have purchased in the past and located the KA50 and purchased it and have not been disappointed.

Excellent relief from hot dry nights.
Ordering and delivery were exceptional and price for product was very good compared to other selers. The product has performed very well. It is easy to use especially filling and duration of time on a full tank. Most importantly it is wonderful to have a portable unit that I can use in the living area by day and bedroom by night. The raising of humidity and lowering temp has been excellent in our hot dry weather. Thanks!

love it...awesome cools and doesn't add to the electric bill
Bought this for my mom who lives in central Texas and needed an efficient cooling support system. This suits her needs and keeps the area about 300sq. ft. ideal. Works great and isn't a bulky industrial looking item. Going to order two more for my sister in New York and another for my mom. We grew up using the large window unit version of these and the product is ideal for this region of the country.

Seems great so far
Very easy to get going, out of the box, fill with water, plug in and voila. I've only had it a week or so and it is doing what I needed. Seems to have plenty of options, holds a lot of water and is stable. The last portable swamp cooler I had was on a pedestal and that didn't last too long. Too much water weight. This unit can be set to hold a certain amount of cooling, so one could run it at night without freezing you out or running out of water. It arrived very quickly and the price was right.

love my Port-A-CoolKA50
took it out of the box, plugged it in and there it went. I exercise in my garage and in Texas, it can get pretty hot (too hot for any kind of workout). With my Port-A-Kool I cannot use that excuse anymore. I set it up on cool and swing and start it 30 mn before prior to working out and I am able to do my whole routine without too much discomfort. It is also ideal to cool down a room in a hurry. After returning home from a long week-end, the house was very hot. The Port-A-Kool helped bring the temperature down quite fast without straining our AC. On very hot days (107+), it helps the AC and uses a lot let power. the only CON I have is the noise level. My Port-A-Kool was delivered in less than 4 days for free. You can't ask for any better service. I recommende the product and the retailer.

Enjoying the cool air
I have been using this cooler for almost a month. It works well in a medium size space and vents a lot of cool air. Easy to use, but it is loud. It is also easy to move from room to room. I have a living room with a high vaulted ceiling that doesn't quite get cool enough when using the cooler. So I started using it at night to cool the bedroom and it gets very cold in there without the help of any AC. Of course the air becomes more humid but it I don't mind it because Nevada is so dry...it helps with allergies in my opinion. Overall, I am pleased that I purchased the cooler.

Pleasantly surprised!
I bought this unit to help defray the cost of electricity running my AC in Arizona. At first, I wasn't sure it was going to do much good because I have a great room that is more than 350 sq feet. But after adjusting the settings and playing with the features, it is doing a remarkable job. It also helps to have a couple of windows in the house open a bit. Take today for instance, it is 104 outside and I've been running the unit all day. It is still 80 in the house, warm but comfortable. I appreciate the added humidity to the air. In the morning hours, I open the doors and windows and the unit has brought the temp in the house to 73 degrees. May not sound like much to you, but in AZ it is a huge difference! The only drawback is that it uses the water up in about 4-5 hours so when I am at work, it can't be on all day.

YA GOTTA GET ONE!!!!!
This unit is our second swamper from Air-N-Water. First one is still running strong, just a smaller unit. As always, fab communication and customer service, thank you. This Port-A-Cool KA50 is way more than we expected. We live in Las Vegas, 8% humidity. Currently we have this one in our bedroom. The room is 400 sqft. We haven't had the fan on over low, and the wind speed is at it's lowest setting available. With these two settings the room is perfect. Because of our low humidity, it does go through a lot of water. Personally I get up in the middle of the night anyways, so I just add more water, or we set the timer. It would be great if the pump would shut its self off, or there was a low water "alarm". The controls are very easy to use and there is a remote as well. The unit has 6 casters, it's so very easy to move around, even with 5 gallons of water in it. On one of our hottest days so far, 100 degrees, I just pointed it from the bedroom into the living room where I was working and let it run. With doors and windows still open, you could feel a major difference walking into the room. I'm kind of excited to crank this baby on full blast once it gets really hot here!!!! Some people complained the unit was loud. My husband sleeps with a C-pap machine. The KA50 creates a nice white noise so I'm no longer awakened by his machine. It also blocks out the low frequency (rumble) noise we here from the airport when there is no wind in the valley. Win win for us! Our house-mate has purchased a KA50 as well. I love the idea of not having to fire up the AC this year. It's a personal challenge to see how comfortable I can keep the house without turning on the AC, I think I'm going to win this year ;) Based on our experience so far, I have no hesitation recommending the KA50 and doing business with Air-N-Water, couldn't be easier or better.

it is a good unit
The main complaint is i purchased 4 of these units and all 4 lasted approximately one season. We would have repaired them but there are no motor replacement parts. So these units are not cost effective for only 1 season. We will be looking for something else next year. We live in the desert and need something that will last.

Just what I was looking for
I have been looking for a portable evaporative cooler like this for two years. I have another that appears to be the same thing except it has a different name and holds 1 gallon more water. They are great units and work well in our dry climate. Very lightweight and easy to move around. I am so happy with the first one which I have had for 4-5 years. These don't need to be vented out a window so you can place them anywhere in the room you like, which was very important to me. The only thing we noticed with this one was that it had a smell when we first started using it, but it must have been a "new" thing as it is fine now.

Works well
This cooler works well. It is amazing if you put ice in the water compartment, it won't last long but, has capability to lower a decent sized room by 10 degrees in a short amount of time. The only issue I have is filling up the water resevoir so much. Works great though.

It doesn't cost much to use at all!
Simple to use. Took only a couples of tries to maximize my benefit. Really moves the air! I've run it every day and some nights since it arrived and it only added about $10.00 to my electric bil. I like that very much!

Great product
Has really helped in keeping the kitchen area cool while cooking. Will also use in winter as a humidifier. A little noisy, but nothing big, because it is doing a job and that is keeping things nice and cool. Easy to move around it needed from room to room.

A really good product that does the job!
This is the 3rd unit that I have purchases in the past 12 years. 2 of the last 3 just would simply not cool. However, the KA50 does the job. It is a little noisier than I had hoped but it cranks out the air. I highly recommend it.

Cools the area quickly but dunit is very noisy.
The unit is great to move the hot air out and bring in some cool air. I put ice into the unit so that the air will be cooler. The unit if very noisy so it will not be good for a business where you have to use the phone. You will have a problem hearing and you will have to raise your voice to talk. I have to increase the volumn of my TV by twice as loud so that I can barely hear the TV.

Exceeds expectations
KA50 really does the job - cools our bedroom quickly - we love it. However, this unit is bigger than we needed - on its lowest setting, it is more than we need - should have bought a smaller model.

Excellent product in all respects (except for the noise level).
This cooler is everything we hoped for - except for the noise level; even at low setting, we can't be in the same room with it and hear anything else. BUT, it absolutely does the job! We just positioned it at the far end of the main hallway and it cools every space in fromt of it - 2 bedrooms, a bath, the living room and the kitchen - well over the stated 350 sq.ft. We live in southwest Colorado, very low humidity, so the humidity the cooler adds to the environment is very welcome - not to mention facilitating the cooling function. As has been said in previous reviews, evaporative coolers will not perform well in more humid climates. In our Four Corners climate, they work beautifully. In the right climate, I highly recommend the Port-A-Cool KA50 KuulAire Portable Evaporative Cooler

This product is awesome, so much worth the money.
As you probably have heard we are experiencing record high temperatures in Texas. I purchased this for my husband who works in an outdoor facility, to help with the unbearable heat. I think everyone that works out there loves to stand in front of it to cool off. I'm happy with the product and so pleased that it's helping keep the guys cool.

Wow!!!
This is an amazing little machine!! After receiving an $850 SoCal Edison bill...for 1 month, the A/C has been Banned! I set out to find something to help us during 100+ summer heat & found this Great Little Machine! You can move it from room to room (or buy more than 1) as it has wheels that move easily & it is a pretty light weight machine! There are adjustments but we have found that the Low speed is Quite Sufficient! Saving my $ to buy 1 or 2 more. THANKS FOR MAKING A MACHINE THAT DOES MORE THAN ADVERTISED!!!

This portable cooler is absolutely perfect for our needs! My wife and mother and I run a full time retail antique store in Wimberley, Texas as well as operating a first Saturday Market Day booth. We've got a 500+ square foot enclosed booth at market day. In the summer gets it gets a bit warm in the Texas Hill country, however our "Port-A-Cool KA50" delivers the air circulation and cooled air to keep my wife cool and comfortable as well as draws customers in who stay longer and spend more money! It's already paid for itself several times over. I also use it in the garage where I spend a LOT of time repairing and refinishing furniture too. Sure keeps me cool during near 100 degree days out there... For an added plus in the garage in just dump the ice tray from the fridge in with the water and WOW!!! COLD AIR and lots of it!

My wife and I own and run the retail booth 190 at the local Wimberley TX Lions Club Market Day. In the summer it gets so hot here in Texas, but this little wonder cools our whole store and helps draw in people... who then spend money! This cooler has paid for itself in just one month! Thanks so much.

I have found this unit to be acceptable but not exceptional. It does run for quite a long time on a full tank, but it does not cool as well as some others I've tried.

My husband uses the KuulAire in his work shed to keep cool. We also use it on our back patio to make Louisiana summers a little more tolerable. We are outdoor people and the KuulAire allows us to enjoy the outdoors even when it's 95 degrees with 80% humidity. Thanks KuulAire!!
