air con cools well but has a consistant humming noise motor has been changed four times and now they are telling me this is normal .i dont think it is.fan speeds were bad on installation but they have addressed and fixed
Purchased in December 2018 for $2.70.
We had this model installed as a replacement for the old unit 18 months ago.
It makes a loud humming noise and causes the windows to rattle if turned up high.
Coolair came out and said the motor was the problem which was replaced.
This has made no difference,it seems the CPQ700 is not a very good product.. .
Quite and so cheap to run love it
Had to replace old evaporative unit as the turbine broke and too expensive to replace part. This unit is quieter than previous model. More efficient with electicity usage and with it running all day during these hot days our daily electicity cost is $3 less on average than with the previous unit. It produces a clean, cooling breeze throughtout our 3 bedroom home. So, so very quiet. Very happy so far.
20 years old, and still going strong!
We have a 20-year-old Coolair evaporative air conditioner, and it's still working well to this day.
I've read many reviews of other evaporative air conditioner brands, and reliability and performance issues seem to be a frequent issue.
Whilst our air conditioner has not been completely without fault, the faults are easy to fix for anyone with even moderate diy skills, and the spare parts are cheap and readily available. The faults on our unit have only occurred within the past 2 years, after more than 18 years of trouble free operation.
I think the key to this brands longevity is the simplicity of the system, it's basically just a fan, 4 pads and a water pump. There's no complex electronics and no other pointless gizmos to break down. The unit just delivers cool air to your home to the temperature that you desire. The unit cools our fairly large house extremely well and costs next to nothing to run.
I'm planning to replace our air conditioner next year, and will definitely be purchasing another Coolair unit.
