        verticle or horizontal installation
        I tried to use a double 9 inch window fan with the telescoping skirts. that fan had two issues 1. the skirts do not support the fans own weight installed vertical and 2. noice from the other side of the fan such as voices was like having just a window open. With the Varnado the noise is highly muffled and installed vertical was not an issue. with fan settings it does push a lot of air, those saying it does not must want to use a leaf blower instead. It is louder on the high settings about 24 db, but on low it is a queit wind. The thermostat is not exactly accurate so a little compensation is needed. I highly recommend the extra 40 dollars for this window fan over the old 2 fan styles.

          Quiet and powerful
          This fan works very very well. It is quite quiet and very powerful. I installed it vertically because my windows slide horizontally and it works just fine. Love the product really helps me draw in the cold air from my air conditioner in the other room to my bedroom.

          It’s not as powerful as it says it is. It doesn’t throw so much air inside but it throws air out especially when smoking in the home.

          NOT for vertical installation
          Looked all over the box for any indication that this could only be installed horizontally. Not a single thing (unless you associate it with the word Transom which still doesn't mean horizontal only). It wasn't until I got home and checked the manual where it finally said for horizontal installation only. Thanks for a waste of time and hopefully others see this review before considering this for vertical install.

            Disappointing Installation
            We have four Vornado fans and one heater (happy will all), so we were excited when we saw their Transom window fan. But, I have to say it is a Vornado fail, at least for our application. We bought it for installation in a relatively new AMSCO vinyl single hung window. The first disappointment was that our screen had to be removed. Our window casing only has a 9/32" rear wall separating the casing channel from the screen (see picture), and the fan measures 2” from the rear foam edge that goes into the casing channel to the rear fan wall. So, the screen prevented the correct fan tilt for installation. Second, once installed and powered off, the closed vent position was not airtight. Our 90* + desert air could be felt leaking through. It didn't take long to see that a 24-hour installation was not practical. The third disappointment was the foam blocks. The base of the blocks measured 1 3/8” while our window case channel measured 1 5/32”, for a difference of a little over 3/16.” The foam allows compression to fit them, but the time it takes doesn’t support daily removal and re-installation. Lastly, the air-flow from the fan was good but not really any more than the standard flat fan it was to replace. The one positive thing was the fan motor is probably a little quieter than the cheaper flat fan. After serious consideration and great disappointment, I returned the Vornado.

              Fan withg a flaw
              Purchased this for the Kitchen because it can be used as an exhaust fan to pull out heat, smoke, odors. Issue I have with this unit is, my window sill is 2 ft in height and when I place the unit in horizontal position, turn on the fan and stand back, the air flow hits me at my knees ( I'm 5'6") Note to mfg, find a way to adjust air flow another 45 degrees upward. Have not had it long enough to check if rain gets thru, as mfg describes: unit has a closed position

                Practically Perfect in Every Way!
                The Vornado TRANSOM is easily the most powerful and elegant window fan I have ever had the honor of seeing or using; while being surprisingly quiet AND weather resistant! As someone who sleeps hot at night, the strong, low height wind generated by the TRANSOM helps keep me nice and cool. Family and friends have also mentioned how much cooler my room feels now in comparison to the rest of the apartment while it is running. I absolutely LOVE it! The unit is pleasantly lightweight despite its size, and installation required no effort once I figured out the correct orientation for the included foam blocks (the manual doesn't specify, so it took a little bit of trial and error). My only real complaints are that the unit lacks of any kind of built-in rear mesh or screen to keep mosquitoes and the occasional carpenter bee out (this is something I'd love to see added in future models or revisions along with an even more powerful speed setting), and that the touch (and even remote) controls can be a little unresponsive at times (I would've preferred physical buttons). The manual states to keep the window screen installed for that very reason but doing so is impossible on the apartment's thin to average size windows (as shown in photos). Overall, I'd HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who wants a powerful window unit without the hassles of installing an air conditioner, or the noise of a box fan. I can't wait to see what future generations of the TRANSOM product line have in store if the first gen is THIS good!

                  I'm the biggest fan!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] In the past I've used regular box fans but I decided to splurge and upgrade to something a little bit more stylish. I ordered this product online and it arrived quickly and was packaged very well. Right out of the box I could tell this thing was sturdy, durable, and reliable. This isn't cheap or flimsy plastic at all. This fan is solid and will last. I was able to plug it in and get it running instantly. I love all the options and settings. The remote control is so cute and easy to use.. This is definitely a quality product that I would recommend in your home or as a gift for someone you care about. This fan is very quiet and I'm so much more comfortable now. Worth every penny!
