Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cut power cost drastically, but has issues are 2 years and has no support When I first got this I was amazed! It was SO quiet, So affordable, So Comfortable! But after only 18 months the fan motor started squealing and I have yet to be able to find parts or a company that would service it... And good luck contacting the company, if you can find them they will not bother returning your messages. April 24, 2014
