Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarimoMama LIfe Saver from the heat!
This fan has been a total life saver for us from the blazing heat in Southern California! I read the reviews before purchasing and took a chance. We use this in our bedroom. It's a large master, about 16 x 12 with a vaulted ceiling approximately 8 ft on one side and 12-14 feet on the other. We had a portable ac unit but it never cooled the room like we wanted, mostly blew warm air around and eventually broke.
Our bedroom is also located on the 2nd floor so all the heat rises up and it was impossible to cool even though it was cold outside in the evenings. With this fan we can shut the door and blow cool air into the room. The exchange of in/out air is an awesome feature since we live next to a busy street/frwy and exhaust comes in from time to time. We can just reverse the fans to get the bad air out. PLUS it has the dial for temperature control, so if you're going to sleep you can set it just above where it would turn off. This way when it get's colder at night, it will shut off automatically.
When it gets to be 90-100 degrees, we add an additional fan in the room to help with the heat issue.
The unit is pretty easy to maneuver in and out the window and store away. Our window is vertical so we will probably eventually add something to block the top space that's open when in use (see photo).
**2 things I wish it had: 1) A filter of some sort to purify the air that comes in. 2) Louver type slats that can be moved to adjust which way the air flows in.
In closing, the unit isn't a miracle worker. If it's hotter than heck outside, there's only so much cooling it can do. It may not work for everyone but for us it's been a dream and we've had it since October 2015. We've run it all night/day during the hot months and it's still holding up perfectly! Worth every penny for us.

It's very easy to set up. Very versatil. I use it in a Food truck, where I need to remove it to drive, and re-install it once stationary, and even then it's very practical. Works great. I have use for it, both, bringing air in, and also extracting the air out, depending whether it is just parked, or being occupied. I've had these units before in an apartment window, and it also worked great there, removing stale air out of the bedroom. By using two units in opposing areas of the dwelling (one out, and one in) you'll be able to have a steady movement of air current throughout the whole area in between. I just love those units.

I was considering a whole house fan to bring in cool air. This fan moves a lot of air for its size. Be careful when stretching the expansion piece. Unit is very quiet.

Recommended by a friend, we purchased 3 of these fans and quickly installed them in each upstairs room in minutes. What was once a hotbox upstairs is now actually cooler than the bottom level. I am very satisfied with the performance and pleasant temperature these fans have quickly provided. The feature of being able to use them as total exhaust, total in-flow, or both is great too.

Very sturdy construction, but light weight. Thin enough that I could leave the screen in place, so no bugs. Incredibly quiet and unobtrusive.
I'm using it as a vent fan for a bathroom, so the small size is a plus. It even fits behind the plantation shutters! I love the 'exchange' setting which draws air in with one fan and blows it out with the other.
Installation took 3 minutes max.
You won't go wrong with this fan.

The fan does not move any air. It's worthless. No I do not recommend this product. A waste of money.

Installed in the second bedroom window upstairs and this little unit really pulls the heat out. Now, I am glad I could not find a window air conditioner.
