You are right about the thread count, it does work better with higher thread counts.
Thank you for making a product that ended my night sweats and gives me a good night's sleep.
The Bedfan Cooling System main body is where the fans are housed. This is the part that is standing on the bed in the image below. The Bedfan is capable of moving up to 100 Cubic Feet of air each minute. This unit is designed for an extremely long service life.
The Breeze Bar (the bar with the two long arms attached to it and laying on the bed in the image below) is a fully adjustable flexible bar that allows for air to flow from the fan body to the top of the mattress and between your sheets. (talk about sleeping cool) The flexibility is there just in case someone happens to sit on the bar. The very top of the bar need only be about 1/2 inch above the top of your mattresses.
The Bedfan Power adapter and Speed Controller have been customer engineered so that you can have full control and flexibility to find your comfort zone. The speed controller is designed so that you can place it directly under your pillow for easy access when you need to adjust the air flow. The speed controller on the Bedfan cooling system is more like a volume controller on a radio, in that you can have it all the way off, all the way on, or anywhere in-between. In other words there are no preset speeds, you are in full control.
The Bedfan cooling system tall bead bracket is not required on every installation of the Bedfan. If you find that the top of the cooling system body is not above the bottom of your mattress, then you may employ this bracket to raise the body to the needed height. It is simple to attach and requires no tools. The bracket can be removed easily for traveling or transferring the system to another bed.
Sheet Blocks ( pictured next to the Bedfan bracket) may be used to help hold the sheets in around the Bedfan body. The simplest way to use the blocks is after you have positioned the system along the bed, you will drape your sheets over the top of the breeze bar while you make your bed. When you drop the sheet over the top of the system you simply push the block in between your mattress and box spring, while doing this the sheet will be drawn in and cause the system to be air tight.
After your Bedfan installation you should have something that looks like the next picture. This is a tall bed with a foot board, so we needed to use the bracket on this installation to raise the fan to the proper height. Notice how you can hardly see the system once installed.
In this next picture you will see where the Bedfan speed controller will be located. Typically it will be under your pillow at night but for demonstration purposes we left it visible.
