I bought the fan because we were going on vacation & staying in a large beach house.. I like the temp at night much colder than most, so I wanted to make sure I had adequate air! When I got to the beach, I took it out of the box and realized it was broken.. would not even turn on. Made the slightest low buzzing noise, so I know it was getting electricity. By the time I got back from vacation and took back to best buy, they wouldn't give me money back b/c it had been 14 days. So I didn't have a fan all week, and I didn't get my money back. I guess check your fan before 14 days is up! Cheap fans, you get what you pay for.
