Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Perfectly My son was having a problem in his rented condo with the air conditioning not reaching his upstairs bedroom. Not being able to actually use the fan "in line" he rigged up a backward vent (shown without the cover) to pull the air to the second story. Worked absolutely beautifully, and it's portable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HVAC 6" Fan I have lived in my house 5 yrs. My bedroom which is the last run from the furnace gets really cold with the door closed (during winter). I was walking through home depot and saw this item on the shelf and decided to give it a try. It is a night and day difference. This unit really helped and price meets the need. However, this unit does add noise when it is running. It is recommending to have this fan 6 to 10 ft from vent. I moved the fan about 20 ft from vent to cut down on noise which also made a big difference. Last tip is how to wire this fan into your furnace. I wired it directly to the furnace fan so it runs when ever the fan turns on. My furnace is 110V power and has EAC (electronic air cleaner) circuit. I don't have eac (instead just filter unit) so the fan can just be hooked to power and ground on these connections and the circuit get completed once the furnace fan kicks on turning on the HVAC fan.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by not really happy Noisey even when placed in the line where the instuctions say put it August 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for the price Easy to install. Lucky that I had a small section (about 2 ft.) of duct at the end of a long run. I put the fan at the end of the long run and then put the small section on the other end of the fan. So the fan ended up being about 2 ft from the register. Consequently I get quite a bit of air rush noise. Sounds like a low quality bathroom exhaust fan. It does work good - room was 63 F now is about 68 F. January 25, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great! Wires Short This was easy to install and now my 2nd floor master, furthest from the furnance, now has about 3x the air flow. I installed a 6" on the supply and a 8" on the return to that room. The wires are really short, Hot/Neutral 6", GRD 4", so I had to solder some extra on them to read a jct box. Then wired it into the blower fan on the furnace. Super quiet too. -1 star due to short wires. July 9, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fan quietly moves more air to distant rooms Product is as expected. Fairly easy to install by merely cutting a section from heat duct, sliding fan assembly into the space and installing with sheet metal screws. The joint is then wrapped with duct tape and insulation. Necessary to install an electrical handy box on the unit to accommodate the electrical connections to complete the project. I expect to purchase another. December 7, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by two down, not doing 3 is the charm venting a warm electronics room. The first one did exactly as planned and worked great until it didn't. It lasted 4 days running approx. 6 hours a day. Returned and got # 2. Installed it and turned on. Motor locked up. Wouldn't start. I am not going to try # 3. Install and uninstall are a pain, wires are too short for my circumstance. value good unless you have to replace multiple times, so it's poor quality poor because they obviously aren't good June 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job Bought to vent heat out of a server room. Installed so that it could be controlled with a rheostat on an adjacent wall. It worked well and without any issues. March 12, 2015
