If you’re looking for an economical and eco-friendly way to cool a large space, consider the Essick Air N46W Window Cooler. This energy-efficient evaporative cooler eliminates hot air and regularly releases fresh, cool air in spaces sized between 1,000 and 1,400 square feet using only a fourth of the electrical energy required to operate a central air conditioning unit. Recommended for dry climates, the Essick Air N46W functions efficiently with quiet operation and no negative environmental impact.
Unlike refrigerant air conditioners which have high power consumption and use toxic chemicals to cool your home, evaporative coolers use natural resources such as water and air to cool your home. The window mount evaporative swamp cooler processes 4,500 cubic feet of air per minute and lowers the temperature in your space by up to 30 degrees using the natural process of water evaporation. As outside air enters the N46W, water-saturated pads inside the cabinet absorb heat from the hot air, resulting in a constant flow of fresh, cool air.
Convenient extras including an installation kit, an optional remote control, and window filler panels make this swamp cooler a great solution with quick installation. The Essick Air RN46W Remote Window Cooler allows you to operate the evaporative cooler from up to 20 feet away. The convertible grille contributes to this fully assembled air cooler’s space-saving design. The unit can be installed in horizontal or vertical windows.
Essick Air swamp coolers use a similar method to the natural cooling effect that occurs when you step out of a swimming pool on a hot day. In hot temperatures water evaporates from your body and takes the heat with it, leaving you with a cool, refreshing feeling. In a similar manner, water evaporates from damp pads inside the evaporative cooler and takes heat from the hot air in your space with it.
Every minute, a powerful blower pulls 3,300 cubic feet of air into the Essick Air N46W swamp cooler through the side vents. The hot, dry air is then brought into contact with two water-saturated pads made from Aspen trees. When the moving air passes through the moist pads, evaporation occurs as the heat from the hot air causes the water molecules to transform into a gas. As the water evaporates from the pads, the gas molecules and heat switch from the higher air temperature to a lower water temperature. The actual temperature instantly drops up to 30 degrees and fresh, cool air is released back into your space through the front air grille.
While traditional air conditioning systems recirculate the same stale air, the Essick Air N46W evaporative air cooler constantly pushes heat out and dispenses maximum fresh, cool air throughout your space every two to four minutes. In addition, the moist pads act as air filters, driving out dust, pollen, smoke, and odors, providing nonstop relief to allergy-sufferers. In the interior of the swamp cooler, a water pump connects to a delivery tube that constantly moistens the evaporative cooling pads. This is done so that the pads remain damp to continue the evaporative cooling process.
By providing a continual supply of fresh air throughout your home, the Essick Air N46W Window Evaporative Swamp Cooler also lowers the effective temperature. This consistent flow of cool air causes a cooling effect by which the constant cool breeze feels 4 to 6 degrees lower than the actual temperature.
In dry, arid climates, evaporative cooling is a more efficient and less expensive solution for cooling your indoor air. When compared to air conditioners, evaporative coolers cost less to operate and install.
Evaporative coolers not only have a significantly lower purchase price than traditional air conditioning systems, they also help you save on electricity bills. Because this energy-efficient window air cooler uses mainly water and air to cool your home, it consumes less power. Operating expenses are typically 75% less than that of refrigerant air conditioners. Essick swamp coolers are powered by plugs and use 115 volts of electricity.
Evaporative air coolers also usually cost 50% to 80% less to install than central air conditioners. The Essick Air N46W Window Cooler does not require the wiring and venting associated with installing a central air conditioning unit. A handy installation kit makes setup a breeze. Just mount the swamp cooler in your window using the window filler panels, leveling legs, and window retainers.

Comments about Essick Air N46W Window Evaporative Cooler:
The AC was good. It cools very well with low electricity bills. The shipping was another story. It was shipped in a flimsy crate and was bent all to siht. I streightned it enough to use but put it in behind the house so it wouldn't show. It's a good product but pick it up yourself and don't let them ship it.
Comments about Essick Air N46W Window Evaporative Cooler:
Product is excellent, works well, good design. Problem was with the shipping, We had ordered a previous unit the year before, 2011, but upon arrival it was damaged to the extent that it was unusable and was returned, the unit this year was also damaged somewhat, top caved in, but I was able to pound it back straight enough to work. You need a new shipping company or better methods. Thanks
