I have just purchased the Honeywell CL60PM but am finding seeing the water level really tricky - any tips.

Hey bee, I have the same cooler -Not a perfect solution but it works well- I leave a small LED torch near the cooler and use that to illuminate it, and as the level indicator is white, it reflects very well.

I am pretty sure there is one supplied mate.
Check the image link here, this came with my unit.

Otherwise I am sure Bunnings or Tradelink would have something to suit but I would get a threaded elbow instead so it was not pointing straight out , too easy to snap it off. Prolly should have been a brass or stainless connection.

Is there a window kit or any kind of ventilation you can use with this unit to carry the hot air out?

Rick

Not that I'm aware of, as with all evaporative cooling the key is air flow, blowing in through an open door or window and out another door or window. This unit is designed with outdoor use in mind. If you were to use it in a closed room the air would become too humid and the cooling effect reduced, the unit wont function well in 60%+ humidity, it works best in a dry climate. Using it last week in Adelaide I measured the air temperature cumming out of the unit at 28 C that was on a 42 C day. I went passed a Sushi Train shop last week and the had one out the front of the shop blowing in through the front door, they work well in hot dry Adelaide.

As Rick said it's an evaporative unit using plenty of water so needs plenty off outside air to draw on and windows open opposing the unit to vent humid air out of the house , it won't work if windows are closed , I have windows and doors open drawing hot air at one end of the house cooling the other end of the house. If you live in high humidity don't expect it to work well, use refrigerated A/C for high humidity.

How suitable for studio flat facing NW? Lot of reflective heat. SK Melbourne but not much breeze

Flat reaches temps of 50 c in heat waves

It's quite noisy as it has a powerful fan and moves a lot of air, for a flat maybe too much, it's designed for out door use so unless you have somewhere undercover outdoors where you can direct the air flow through a door or window I wouldn't recommend this model. They do make a smaller version .

I live in Nth Qld and a few years ago bought an evaporative cooler (a cheapie brand) but it was useless due to the high humidity here. Does anyone have experience with this unit in very humid locations, please? Cheers :)

humidity has to be below 50%, best in Adelaide, Perth and outback

No they don't work in the tropics.

sqm range of cooling capacity????

I have a living room of approx 35 sq metres, open to a hallway, in a small house. I live in SE QLD, so summer can get hot and humid. I only need to use something for the summer months so don't want anything permanently put in a window etc. Would the Honeywell CL30xc be suitable? I imagine the CL60 would be more powerful and prob noisier? Jo

The problem with SEQ is that it gets very humid and these kinds of coolers don't perform well in that kind of heat. If you want to know how cool the air will be coming out of the cooler go to BOM and click on the latest weather observations for the Brisbane Area and check along for the Delta T column that Delta T is the change between the Apparent Temperature and what the Cooler will push out. For example at 5:50pm on the 29th of January the Apparent temp was 30.2c and the Delta T was 5.1. This means that the airconditioner would be blowing out sair that was 25c.

Note, this is a best case scenario as evap coolers also add to the humidity so if the humidity was higher your delta T would be lower and if you couldn't purge the humidity your apparent temperature would actually go up.

But on those 40c days when the humidity vanishes these things rock. For instance in Canberra today (at the same time) the Apparent Temperature is 29.4 degrees and the Delta T is 15.5. Which means we're pushing out air at about 15c. It's so powerful that it's blowing that air around the whole house. Even when it was 36c earlier today it was nice and cool in the house.

Thank you so much, that answer is amazingly informative, and I am going to use it to see what I can do for the rest of summer, which in Qld continues til end of March. So far this summer I've gotten through the heat [but not the humidity] with Arctic Cooling Fans and Vornado fans, both excellent, but it's the humidity that's the killer. Next tax return I will hopefully be able to afford air conditioning!

Would this work well in a tent?

Adam
Adam  

It's roughly the size of a tent. In all seriousness the unit is fairly big. It's about a metre high, 40cm wide, and probably 20cm deep. Filled up the unit is also really heavy, 60l of water (which is how big it's tank is) is 60kg. So, if you add on the extra 20kg that the unit weighs it's fairly impressive. This is really designed as a space cooler. 80 square metres of space can be cool by this at full power.

For a tent you could get away with a much smaller unit.

Also, be aware that these kinds of coolers are also only good in low humidity areas.

Make sure the tent is well pegged down , this will blow it away. I could see it working well in a large marche , it's designed for outdoor (under cover) use. but once again not it the tropo tropics. Too humid.

i have an off grid solar system and need to be careful of power consumption. Can you tell me how many KW this type of unit uses? Thanks Brian
