Ask a Question
  • does this fan put moisture out in the air

    The evaporative cooler type fans blow air through a special padding that hold water.  The air that is sent out of the unit has very slight moisture, unlike that of a humidifier that is designed to put moisture into the air.

  • How many square feet will it cool

    This evaporative cooler fan is designed to cool spaces 700 sq. ft. or less.

  • On each speed(assuming 3 speeds) what is the cfm output at each speed?

    This is a variable speed evaporative cooling fan (not 3 speed).  The manufacturer has only tested at the highest speed (2400 CFM).
