The Hessaire 5,300 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 three media panels instead of a single panel found on most mobile coolers. The three 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 percent more evaporation surface compared to regular density media. This means higher evaporation efficiency and cooler temperatures. Patented axial prop is energy efficient and throws cool air farther. Features an oscillating design for maximum cooling. Molded with a polypropylene resin, creating a strong, yet lightweight design.Prop is designed to deliver a hi-velocity of air to you quietly.

- Only used it twice but seems to be very good – quality looks good, easy to roll around, blows nice cool air – still learning.
- No frills design that worked well. Housing looks to be made entirely of plastic which keeps it light weight but probably not the most rugged construction. Some care should be taken while handling the unit. Had a slight fishy smell which 95% went away after first full day of use but a slight hint remained. After each use I make sure to completely dry the unit which seems to help the odor issue. Fan noise seems comparable to box fans with similar fan sizes.
- After studying evaporative coolers for a while, I decided to purchase this model and glad I did! It puts out a lot of air and the noise level is very low vs. others we have heard. We use this on our patio/back porch where we have west sun beating down us and this unit keeps us cool now! Although we did have a small issue – during shipping the capacitor fell out of its holder and was dangling when we turned it on the fan beat on it a little. Took the back panel off and put it in correct place and it has been running with no problems. I would highly recommend.
- This swap cooler works outstanding! I use it to cool my garage with this cooler and it works great. With the setting on hi it blows air really hard and drops the temp to 75 with the temp in the garage 95!
- I’ve had a Master Cool portable cooler for about 9 years now that has worked fine, except for the gradual rusting of the body. Last year the sides holding the cooling pads would not stay in place & there was leakage constantly. That was a mess on the patio. My wife told me not to even bother bringing it out this year, so I went shopping & found the Hessaire line of coolers, compared them to others & decided this made the most sense, especially the rubberized plastic body. Ordered it from Walmart (saved $40 from HomeDepot’s price) and it was here in two days. Box & all from FedEx only weighed 60 pounds so no problem getting it unpacked and set up. Helped to know that the wheels were packed inside. Incredible air-mover, so much so that it could really use another slower speed. The only issue I encountered was the float stuck, both open and closed. WD-40 fixed that. Considering what our goal for the cooler is: make the patio bearable during the summer, and what it costs, I am very happy so far.
- This unit works and looks great; however, I wish there had been instruction on finding the casters. There was no indication where they might be and they were packed in a box taped to the inside of the water tray at the bottom of the unit. Did not rattle or anything indicating there might be something inside. Had to unscrew the back panel of the unit to get into tray and know that there was something inside to even see them. The tray is not a removable tray so you could not just pull the tray out like a drawer to see if there might be something inside. Only found out after first unit was returned for being missing parts. When second unit arrived with “missing casters” called the manufacturer and was told where to find them. Might want to put a sticker notification on the box or unit to tell other unsuspecting purchasers.
- No way 5300 CFM, my 2500 CFM pushing way more cold air than this unit, and to say it cools 1600 sqft is a joke, math don’t add up
