Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PacificNorth 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.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Danse 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 Eriks Good, but not very strong
I have installed a half dozen of these booster fans in my ductwork and of the four I installed last year, one failed (motor burnout)--but the other ones work fine. The fans are not terribly strong--but they are reasonably quiet. Good choice if you need a "little boost" to airflow to a remote HVAC register.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim23 Very well constructed product. Easy to install.
The in-duct fan was easy to install. It is well made and operates very efficiently. It is very quiet and looks easy to maintain. For the price it's a real buy.

Really doesn't push any air and was a big waste of money

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Xyster101 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.
