Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for NewAir 100-sq ft Portable Evaporative Cooler (312-CFM). The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 4.00 stars, and the price range is $99.99-$139.89.

The NewAir 100-sq ft Portable Evaporative Cooler is one of those unique fans that combines components of humidifiers and a/c units. At heart, the Portable Evaporative Cooler is an oscillating fan. Reviewers were satisfied by the quietness, being able to add airflow without disrupting the noise flow. However, NewAir added some extra features to give it a little more cooling power. The fan has an "evaporative" function, humidifying the air. Simply add water to the reservoir and select the "swamp function" for a light mist to cool off your home. If you're looking for an extra cooling boost, some reviewers added chilled water or even ice.

Some reviewers were not satisfied at all with the NewAir Portable Evaporative Cooler. There was a reoccurring statement about the fan's pump. It either had a short life span or did not work at all. NewAir was very accommodating to frustrated buyers as many reviewers were very pleased with the customer service especially in the face of hot and cranky consumers.

There was also disappointment in the cooling power. Many claimed the fan did not cool their room at all. Their disappointment appears to be related to their expectations. It's important to note that NewAir Portable Evaporative Cooler is a fan first. Its primary function is air circulation for small rooms. It is not a substitute for air conditioning; rather, the Portable Evaporative Cooler is a supplement. Furthermore, the cooling humidifying function also works ideally in dry hot environments. If you're trying to cool off in a swampy environment like Florida, then this may not be the right unit for you. Reviewers who had clear expectations for NewAir Portable Evaporative Cooler were the most satisfied.

Ice pack didn't help cool the air. Wasn't expecting it to work like an a/c, but honestly no different than a $30 fan from Target.
