The window i would like to use this in does not open up and down. It opens horizontally (think sliding glass doors).

Can this be mounted/installed in an up-down orientation?

Answer: 
I use mine in a sliding window, but can't see what your sliding window looks like. Need more info to be sure.
IF your window has a 12X35" opening and a bit of a "shelf", you should be able to mount it.
The upper fan direction control may be a bit high, depending on how tall you are.

Answer: 
I have used one (in a former residence) in a sliding window with no problems. Just don't use the expander on the bottom portion, (meaning the bottom when it is installed vertically), because the weight of the fan unit itself is too much for the expander. It will collapse and fall out of the window! (Ask me how I know...lol!) ;)
The expander on top never extended all the way to the top of *my* window Read More

The expander on top never extended all the way to the top of *my* window frame, (this would depend on how big your window is), but I just used to make sure that the sliding window was as snug as possible against the bottom (which is now the side) of the fan. Hope this makes sense! Read Less

Can you just put this on the window sill for temporary usage?

I have a horizontal sliding window with a 5.5" sill in a highrise and most of the time I don't need a fan in the window so I was hoping you could just put this on the sill with the window opened just so it can't fall out. I see feet on the pictures.

Answer: 
Since the fan is used to introduce cool air into the room in the evening I don't use it for exhaust. I HAD thought the word thermostat control would mean it would TURN OFF at the SET temp. It doesn't!

Answer: 
It's a fan, not a heater.
It moves air.
It doesn't provide heat no matter where you have it.
If it's pushing warm air out, that air has to be replaced from somewhere.
The thermostat turns the fan off when the room temperature has dropped to the level you've set it.

What is the power of this fan in CFM and does it have a pull string option to turn it off, as it would be installed on the top part of a window? How long is the power cord?

Thanks

8 in. Electrically Reversible Twin Window Fan with Thermostat is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 96.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst purchase ever. I've purchased other window fans before, including Lasko fans. This one far surpassed the title of one of the worst purchases I've ever made. Proper installation is next to impossible. Trying to fit it into the window is extremely difficult and I am considered someone who is mechanically inclined. Even the electrical cord where it comes out of the fan interferes with it's proper installation. The side panels that extend out are very stiff and interfere when you try to fit the fan in the window. Performance wise I can't comment on since I gave up before I got to that point and decided to take advantage of Home Depot's return policy.

It is very bulky and will not fit in a window which has a screen because it is just too deep and there is too much of the fan behind where the retractable sides come out from the fan. Getting creative though, I decided to place it in the sliding door which has no screen. Here is where I find out the fan simply does not pull air. Even on the highest setting, the fan does not spin fast enough to pull air in sufficiently. I have had many Lasko fans in the past which worked great. This model however is a major disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fan I have an a/c unit, but couldn't get anyone to install it in the bedroom window. My downstairs stays cool, but the upstairs gets HOT. I decided to give one of these reversible fans a try. What a relief. I run it on exhaust on both sides all day, pulling all the hot air out. In the evening, I run one exhaust and one intake and when I go to bed I put both on intake. I wake up with a light weight quilt on because at some point, I have gotten chilled. POINT: The fan is definitely doing the job I needed it to do. Well worth the money and cheaper to run than an a/c.

My husband is an engineer and could not get this junk to go into window. The tightening screws do nothing, the top will not fit into window so it will stay in window, the side panels only come out a tiny bit. The design of this fan is a joke. I not only want my money back but wish Lasko would also pay me for all the time I wasted with their terrible product. I will never buy another Lasko product! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON THIS JUNK!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from POOR ENGINEERING FOR INSTALLATION; POOR MANUFACTURING QUALITY 1.. "Window bracing piece" was so badly produced that it did not fit the fan unit. 2.. I jury rigged the fan to fit the window with a home made brace. 3.. The insect blocks on each side to not extend to fit the standard width window. They instruct to make plywood replacements which for the money spent is ludicrous. 4.. We spend a significant amount at Home Depot and know the folks at both units in our town but I've been so disgusted that I haven't returned the fan yet; that's my next step.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best price found at Home Depot; good value The first model of this fan lasted me through almost 5 summers (I only use it in my kitchen window during the hot months). For the price, I find this an acceptable length of service; that's why I ordered the same model again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK for the money decent fan for the price. not strong enough for our needs. needed an exhaust fan to pull cigarette smoke out of a room that's about 11'x24'. it helps, but not as strong as i had hoped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little fan for bathroom. Put this in my vacation home bathroom since house was old with no exhaust fan in bathroom. Just make sure switch is on exhaust not intake if you know what I mean :)
