D. Davis: It works well as a window fan to pull outside air in, takes only a few minutes to cool a room and about 1/2 hour to cool several rooms. It's not quite what I expected as an exhaust fan and did little to cool the room running for more than an hour w/a second window open in the same room. So if you've got a window w/o a screen and there are a lot of bugs outside, exhaust would be ideal... but it doesn't work very well. Recommend industrial ceiling mounted whole house fan if you prefer heat exhaust instead of blowing air in. Turning on additional box fans at oposite ends of the house seemed to help move air exponentially faster with multiple windows open. All-in-all, if your window is big enough or you have the means to gerry-rig a $20 box fan, that may be the way to go. If you prefer something that looks nice, can stay in place even when the window is closed, this might be worth $70 to you... I kinda prefer taking the extra 2 minutes to put a box fan in the window and put it away when I'm done.
Dr. Jessie J. Mercay: This fan is a good fan but does not move the amount of air I want to move. I usually put a fan at one end of the house then open my bedroom window and have the fan pull in cool air at night. this somewhat does the job but really not enough. I might be asking for too much for its size etc. I like the fact that it is reversable and it is adjustable to fit wide or narrow windows. If you are using it for one room this is a good fan but not great for the whole house (I have a small house 1500 sq ft). I'd give it a try and see if it works for you.
Dr. Wilfredo M. Viray "Wally": I live in LA and summer can get to the low 100s. In the evenings though the temperature can dip into the 60s. So I though of venting out the heat and drawing in the cool air, at night and early morning. I installed this in one of the casement windows in my house. The way I installed it allowed for the window to be closed without taking down this fan. So at night, I turn this on and vent out the hot indoor air, and it creates a negative pressure in the house so it sucks air through my front door and windows of the other bedrooms. It does create a cool breeze as it is drawing in the cooler fresh air. I have not turned on my Air Conditioner since I installed this.During the day, I turn this off and shut the window and leave a small crack just to have some air. The indoor temperature does increase by about 5 degrees by dusk. When the Outdoor temperature goes below the indoor temperature, I open all the windows and doors and turn on this exhaust fan. This system works very well for us and I am very happy with this purchase since I am saving so much money. This paid for itself after only 2 weeks. You have to love that.
D. Steinmetz "dwsteinme": The first fan I purchased like this was in 1992 from Sears. It had their name on it, but it was obviously built by Lasko. That original is still functional, but after 14 years, it was time for a new one. Must be a proven, solid design to have been in production this long. It moves the air through my home easily, but my house is smallish, only about 1500 square ft. My only gripe concerns the fan guard, or grill, which faces towards the outside, through the open window. This grill is plastic, which we all know doesn't last forever. Exposed to direct sunlight and the elements, this grill will eventually become brittle. It takes several years for that to happen, but that's what happened with the first fan.I hope that Lasko will in the future consider making this grill out of metal, like the one facing the inside.One last thing........if, like me, you're sick of seeing "Made in China" stamped on everything, this fan is American-made.
eternitybound: These are great fans--I bought one for the upstairs hall, and one for the downstairs dining room of my colonial home. WIth both of them running on exhaust, the whole house is cooled off within an hour on a cool summer night. There is a bit of understanding needed with the dimensions though. I had no choice but to mount the fan on the inner window frame for both windows, because the extensions do not reach far enough to mount on the outside of the window frame. The windows cannot be shut with the fan mounted, because they have a "lip" at the bottom, that overhangs a bit and runs the length of the window, to make opening and closing easier. The lip interferes with the window closing while the fan is in place, so the fan must be removed from the mount if heavy rain is expected (Hurricane Irene, for instance!) Even so, the fan is easily removed, once the screws are in place.
