does the slight arch along the top edge of the fan housing keep the window from closing flat down on the fan? Seems a little odd? Thanks.

No, I have had this exact fan for over 15 years before it finally went south. The arch is raised plastic on both the front and back of the fan leaving a flat trench in between where the window sits. Has fit my windows, wherever I've lived, perfectly. I recommend this fan highly.

No, the arch is only for looks. The window closes between the arches. The only issue might be that this fan seemed to be a little thicker than my other fans , so the screen was in the way. Still, for the price, compared to Holmes 8' fans, you can't beat it.

Answer: 
I have owned many box fans and the one thing they can do that this fan cannot do, is set on the floor and pointed anywhere. But if you want a fan to go in the window and pull air in or blow air out, this fan is far better than any box fan. It's also better built and quieter. It is the best fan I've ever owned.

Answer: 
A box fan, if it can fit into a window space, would likely have larger fan blades and move more air. Twin window fan fits neatly into a window. You might have to use a box fan by setting it on the floor where kids or pets could knock it over.

This fan is a different animal than a box fan. This fan will sit in a window, is quiet enough to use while sleeping and can exhaust hot air through controls rather than a manual flip. Each has their use, depends on what you're situation is. This fan will not sit on the floor unless propped. It has no feet.

My window is tiny. This twin fan will fill the entire window, so one fan would be on the closed side and one on the open side. I need to be able to leave the fan on the closed side off so it won't waste a lot of electricity and/or try to push itself out of the window. I can't seem to find a window fan small enough for just the open side, so this twin fan seemed like my next best option.

The short answer is "yes", but this might not be the fan for you. This fan is designed for a double-hung window, not a casement window, which seems to be what you're describing. You might succeed in placing the fan vertically, instead. Horizontally placed, the fan takes up a minimum width of 23 inches.

Yes, you can have one fan turned off completely, and the thermostat feature will still work with the running fan (I am confirming this with my fans as I sit here and type!). You can set it to blow in or out without turning the whole unit around, which makes this much better than the other twin window fans in this price range.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 405 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super handy fan/extractor 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. May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BFF - Best Fan Forever 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. May 3, 2016

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet but powerful My only mistake in buying this is that I didn't realize it didn't have a stand -- it sits in the window frame and you have to pull the window down on it to get it to stand up straight. I just want something that can sit in the windowsill and bring in extra outside air without closing the window on it. Otherwise, I'm pleased with the quiet (which is one of the reasons I bought it) and the three different speeds. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Deal For The Money This was a replacement for a twin window fan that stopped working. I was happy to find a similar window fan to fit my window that is easy to operate.
