"I never write letters to companies regarding their products, But i had to this time. I just wanted you to know. The first night I used my bed fan i wanted to test it out to the max. So I set it up as normal, with the top sheet nicely tucked in and around the fan. Then i added my duvet on top of that along with my comforter. I could not stop laughing when i turned the Bedfan up all the way and i was laying there in a cocoon of refreshing air.. It LIFTED ALL of it right off the bed.. The sheets, the duvet and the comforter.. WOW.. I stopped laughing, turned it down and went to sleep. This thing can really put out if you need it. Thanks for a wonderful product and a wonderful nights sleep, FINALLY. Not fancy, but it works like a champ." Cyndi from Delaware.

In this modern day age of technology I find myself longing for the days of simplicity. Where you didn't four remotes to just to watch TV. Where you didn't have to plug all your gadgets in to keep everything charged up. Where your bedside table had a book or two and a lamp to read by. Not where you have phones, I-pads, alarm clocks, chargers, books, papers, prescription bottles, drink cups and more. No I don't think there is any more room for one more gadget, one more appliance on my bedside table. One more remote that needs batteries. One more remote that gets lost. One more remote that falls on the floor and gets broken. No more remotes.
We like to keep things simple. A simple remote that can be tucked under your pillow for easy access. A simple remote that can be placed in the middle for you and your partner to share. A simple yet reliable remote on the end of a wire so you never have to guess again where it went. Life is complicated enough without one more wireless gadget. We keep it simple with a fully functional, highly reliable, discrete wired remote that works Always. Dad always told me (KISS) Keep It Simple Stupid. so we have.
The Bedfan is designed to stay out of your way. Even when you change your sheets. You simply put your bottom sheet on as normal and throw the top sheet over the fan and tuck it in. Nothing changes.
The small, extra long cord comes from the side of the Bedfan Cooling system so that nothing is sticking out from the bed. You simply run the cord under your bed and plug it in. Out of sight out of mind. All UL compliant.
The breeze that is created by the Bedfan travels the path of least resistance. You place the Bedfan at the foot of the bed on your side and the breeze travels along the sides of your body. It is restricted from moving to the other side of the bed.
Much like a volume control on a radio the Bedfan can be turned up all the way or completely off. You can run the fans at any speed you like. Most people use it at about 15% of available power. This also makes it last longer. The controller can be placed under your pillow or on your night stand.
It is very safe. All parts, plastic, fans, power supply etc.. have been rigorously tested by Underwriters Laboratories.
The Bedfan is for everyone that wants to sleep deeper, cooler and fuller. Some people just want to save money on their Air-conditioning bill and some people are dealing with night sweats for countless other reasons. The Bedfan works for everyone that wants a cooler more comfortable night of sleep.
When a car manufacture chooses an engine for a specific car they don’t chose one that will give you just enough power to make the car move. They deliver the car with 5 or more times as mush power as you would need. The main reason for this is so that your engine will last longer. If you only use 20% of the available power your engine will last 5 times longer. If you used 100% of the power all the time your engine would not last long at all. That is the same thought that we put into the development of the Bedfan ®. Although you can raise the power to 100% and get a lot of air out if the fan, the normal operation is around 20% of available power. It is very quiet at this level and very efficient. Your fans should operate perfectly at this speed for a long time.
When you use the Bedfan for the first time, you most likely keep the temperature very cool in your home. We suggest that you raise the thermostat a couple of degrees and turn up the Bedfan until you find your personal comfort zone. You will use less air condition, save money and enjoy a better night’s sleep! I used to set my thermostat at 68 degrees every night. After developing the Bedfan, I now set it around 79 degrees!
When you get into bed and develop a hot flash or night sweats, the extra heat that is generated under the covers has no place to go. Your body will naturally try to cool itself down by sweating. The Bedfan provides you with a constant, gentle flow of air that helps remove that extra heat, lower your body temperature and keep you from sweating.

This is the original Bedfan. We came up with this idea in early 2002 while living in Boerne Texas, We started production soon after that. Any other version on the market is not the original and is not made in Texas like ours, they are most likely made in China.
