Default Bed fan



I never have used one but, it seems like it would be an excellent way to cut back on AC use. I just wonder if it would blow the sheets/blankets everywere.



quote from: http://mattresszine.com/mattress-acc...m-brookestone/

" COOLING COMFORT: The Bed Fan attaches to the foot of the bed and blows fresh, cool air between your top and bottom sheets. This not only instantly cools you, it disperses the built-up body heat trapped under the covers, moving up to 100 cubic feet Cubic foot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia of air every minute. It’s uniquely designed to keep you cool in bed, so you—and your partner—get a better night’s sleep. Perfect for individuals who sleep warm or couples with different temperature preferences!

ENERGY SAVING: You can raise the thermostat by several degrees and still sleep more comfortably than you did before.

EASY TO USE AND CONTROL: The small, handheld control sits on your bedside table or under your pillow—and the fan speed is infinitely adjustable, so you get exactly the right level of cooling. It’s easy to install, hardly visible once it’s in place, and the dual fans are quiet and discrete"

Interesting idea. Sounds like it would work pretty well.

I think the blankets would get pulled up onto the bed, then it would kinda be useless.

Looks like a neat idea. I wonder if you can get a water mattress cover with cooling?
