I bought the
Bedfan for my wife who experiences hot flashes. The summer months are the
worst and I was excited that she would be more comfortable without using so
much air conditioning when summer gets here. I bought the
Bedfan in the
winter and she has not had to use it very often. We use a winter quilt,
which we have not replaced with lighter summer bedding and recently on a warm
spring evening she first got up and opened the windows then remembered the
Bedfan and turned it on. That morning she woke up and the first thing out
of her mouth was "That thing really works"Ě.
that while she was on a 2 day trip, I woke up uncomfortable from the warm
and muggy weather. I first turned on the ceiling fan but only got relief if
I was uncovered. I immediately rolled over to her side of the bed and
turned on the
Bedfan . I couldn't believe the difference. I decided I
needed to get another
Bedfan for me.
idea, a double
Bedfan for couples in a king size bed, separate controls of
course. ( try two units.. :) )
Thanks for the
Bedfan , I love it too.
LOVE IT !!!! When I started having the "
HOT FLASH / NIGHT SWEAT " syndrome I asked my Dad when my Mom's stopped and
he replied "the day she died"!
I knew I couldn't wait that long when my
sister (older I might add) told me about the "Bed fan". I immediately placed
my order and upon receiving it. It is almost as good as my old "happy patch"
(which I gave up because the risks just weren't worth it) but MUCH
My only wish is that you had a travel
size. I have to share with you that all the women I work with kept thinking
I was bragging about my new "bed PAN". Now if you could solve that problem
you would make even more women happy!!

My sister emailed me a note with an attached TV interview on The Bedfan .
She knows that I am ALWAYS hot, so thought of me immediately when she saw
was skeptical at first. I mean, how can you have a fan
I finally watched the clip. Still not sure. So I looked it up on the web
and read everything they had on The
Bedfan website. It still took me awhile
to decide to risk that much money. After all, I can get a fan from Wal Mart
for less than $10.
Well, after the first of the summer, running my AC all night just to get
some sleep, and then getting my utility bill, I decided to take the risk.
My first amazement came when the owner of the company called me and
offered to deliver my fan in person! What great customer service!
am not very mechanically inclined, but had no trouble at all setting up the
fan. That first night, I had to get up after about an hour, and turn the
thermostat up! It only took a few nights to work out the perfect
combination. I slept on a cool, soothing cloud of comfort all summer. And
with the control right under your pillow, it is easy to make adjustments
without really waking up. And best of all, The
Bedfan PAID FOR ITSELF in
savings on my utility bill!
This winter, my sister moved in with me. She is extremely cold natured, so
I have kept the house a lot warmer at night than I am comfortable with. The
Bedfan to the rescue! I haven't spent any nights in hot discomfort. In
fact, I go to bed early to cool off!
did make one adaptation. My feet would get cold before my body cooled
off. Since I sleep on a single bed, I moved it to the side, and now the
cool comfort is evenly distributed. It is so small and easy to assemble
that I take it with me when I travel also. The
Bedfan is the first thing I pack, and
the first thing I unpack.
I wouldn't give up my Bedfan for any price or anybody!
The Bedfan is great. It
provides immediate cooling to soothe those hot flashes. We have been able
to adjust our a/c thermostat and save money. Even my grandchildren want to
sleep over so they can enjoy a cool, restful night's sleep.

I'm only 24 years old--too
young to have medical conditions resulting in night-sweats, and much too
young to have to deal with them for no understandable reason. Within the
past year, I began to sweat so much at night that at times I would have to
get up in the middle of the night to change my completely soaked clothes. I
would even have to lay towels over the sheets so I could go back to sleep.
Besides being a huge inconvenience, sweating at night was also an
embarrassment that made me feel self-conscious.
My husband heard about the
Bedfan a few months ago though, and I haven't had a problem since! We we
surprised by the sleek, non-intrusive design and at how simple the
was to install. I love most the range of intensity that I can adjust
depending on how I feel each night. My husband loves that he isn't effected
by the fan at all, and we both love that we're both getting good sleep
again! I brag about my
Bedfan to everyone and highly recommend it to
I love my Bedfan . I told my
doctor , this is the answer to " night sweats". Every woman suffering with
menopause knows about these " power surges" we suffer at night. In the
summer , I was sleeping with the A/C on 73, the ceiling fan on high and
another fan blowing on me. With my
Bedfan , I can raise the A/C higher and
not use the other fans. When I have a power surge , I just adjust the
control up a little higher until its over. I can truly get a better night
sleep because of my
I live in Houston, TX,
humidity capital of the south, and I am constantly looking for ways to keep
energy costs at bay while still allowing me and my family to sleep at night
without soaking the sheets.
I read about your product
last summer on a website that offered suggestions to help save electricity.
The author mentioned several intriguing pieces of merchandise from other
manufacturers but I was particularly interested in the
Bedfan . I purchased
Bedfan , admittedly with some skepticism as to it's effectiveness, but lo
and behold, the
Bedfan won me over! It is amazing!
The first night I placed
it at the foot of the bed on my side because my wife thought the breeze
would tickle her feet. That night I stayed cooler and slept better then I
had since I moved out of my parents house and started paying my own electric
bill. As the nights went by I started to notice that my wife was sleeping
more and more on my side of the bed. Although this is very nice, she was
Bedfan , so I slid it to the middle of the bed where we could
share the cool breeze. Now when she changes the sheets she keeps moving it
more and more to her side of the bed!
In Houston we all have the
same problem... how do we keep the thermostat up while keeping the
temperature down. The
Bedfan does that. I now set the thermostat at 78 (I
normally like it at 72) before I go to bed and I still am able to sleep
under the covers and stay cool. Why refrigerate the entire house when I only
need the bed to be comfortable.

I purchased a Bedfan from you at the Minnesota Inventors last June. I live in Texas and thought WOW that looks really cool! I
have never lived in such high humidity before.
The Bedfan is just wonderful as I
get a good night sleep now while my body stays cool. Also like the sleek slim
design and remote control right at my fingertips.
Goodbye to those night sweats and waking up clammy in the mornings!
can't thank you enough for coming up with such a Great product.
I am going to get one for my brother and his wife who live in New Mexico!
The Bedfan is as necessary to summer as
an electric blanket is to winter! You wonder how you ever slept without
it.... and then you remember that whole problem was you
Bedfan ...who would have thought it
could make such a change in one's life! Since I received my
Bedfan , I
have been able to sleep comfortably through the night. Something that I
haven't been able to do in years.
I used to toss and turn, flipping my
pillow, tossing off the covers, trying to get cool. The Ceiling fan ran
on high and every morning I would wake up tired and stuffed up. My
husband, on the other hand was freezing and having trouble sleeping
because of it.
Not only has the Bedfan provided
me with comfort from the heat build up between the sheets, but it has
also ended the war over the thermostat between Hubby and I. Now we both
sleep within our comfort zones, wake up refreshed, and ready for the
Thanks, your a genius

JUST A HUGE THANK YOU FOR YOUR
WONDERFUL PRODUCT. WE HAVE HAD OUR
Bedfan FOR ABOUT 2 MONS NOW. IT IS
WONDERFUL ! SUCH A GENTLE BREEZE. VERY COMFORTABLE. WE LOVE IT.
Genius! Pure genius!
No more tossing the covers off, then
pulling them back on, all night long. No more running the AC at icicle
It's like sleeping inside a cool,
comforting cloud. And the
Bedfan was so quick and easy to install, that
it will travel with me when I visit. Especially when I visit my
parents, south of San Antonio, who still don't have central air!
Bless you, Mr. Tompkins!
I wanted to give you a follow up on my
experience with your Bed Fan.
I took it with me when I visited my
parents a few week ends ago. They live south of San Antonio, and do not
have Central AC. I usually really suffer through the nights there, since
they only use an attic fan to cool the house. All that does is bring in
more hot, humid air. But, the Bed Fan was so easy to dismantle, took up
very little space in the car, and easy to re-assemble. And it really made a
big difference. So, you might add "portable" to your web-site information.
Thanks again for making such a great
Oh, Thank you! That is so kind and I
really appreciate it!! Believe me, we have been telling everyone about
our great bed fan and will keep doing so. I look forward to watching
the success of the bed fan, ads in national magazines, t.v., NPR, etc .
Have a great week. Thank you, again
very much. S.
writing to advise that I am quite amazed that this device works! I
have been experiencing night sweats for almost ten years and have bought
all kinds of bedding and night clothes with little relief. I have many
fans, ceiling fans, big fans, little fans, all kinds of things but
nothing keeps me dry during the night like the
Bedfan - even at its
lowest setting its enough to keep me dry.
I ordered on trial basis. I am very satisfied and will keep Bedfan ..
Thanks so much.

Happening upon the Bedfan product in
a rather round-a-bout way I was enthralled because I had never even
contemplated such a device was possible. I had always relied on either
a ceiling fan or table fan to circulate the bedroom
air.......problematic if you're sleeping with someone who doesn't like
sounded too good to be true - but I took the plunge and purchased
one.....and I have used it every day since - summer AND winter. Maybe
that sounds strange - even in winter! But I got so used to the
wonderful breeze wafting over my body and expelling the pent up heat -
using it year round is simply a no-brainer. The adjustable fan speed
lets you control the air no matter what the outside temp.
Sleep is so important but
impossible to sustain if one is constantly waking and throwing off the
sheets - then waking up too cold and putting them back on. This device
allows for constant temp control around your body so you can engage in
the most crucial aspect of health - a good nights sleep!!
I will never be without this
product - ever.

I received this as a gift and it has been great. I used to constantly throw the covers on and off all night. If you have night sweats, you know about sticking that foot in out out all night. Not anymore! I get much more restful sleep. The best thing is, you can adjust the speed of the fan to your current body temperature. It is wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone that has trouble sleeping due to being too hot
regardless of the reason.
Thank You , Connie Russell
My wife and I are very calm sleepers so we have no fights over space or covers but temperature has always been an issue. She is going through menopause and is hot most of the time. The part that makes the menopause worse at night is because I am a hot box when I'm sleeping. Between the two of us we usually end up whipping the covers off one minute and then searching for them the next. Thanks for one the most peaceful nights of sleep I have had in a long time.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I live in Minnesota so it stays relatively cool most of the time, but in the summer I die. I turn the air conditioner down so that it runs constantly and my bill is outrageous. My daughters live with me and complain all the time about how cold it is in my house. They walk around in sweatshirts and long pants in the house just to keep comfortable and joke that they have to walk outside in the winter just to warm up. So I stuck the Bedfan at the foot of the bed and waited. It took a few minutes to cool the bed down from my body heat, but then I felt it, the cool, light flow of air that was moving the hot air out. It worked so well that sometime in the night I got up and turned the air conditioner up.
I sometimes get sweats at night from my medications so I turned it on. At first it was too cold for me but then I turned it down and slept the night away. This fan saves on air conditioning costs, complaints from other people in the house when it's too cold at night, and it's quiet to boot. Good idea, Great product!
My wife and I are not hot sleepers but in the summer our third level rooms get unbearable for heat. We tried the Bedfan and both love it. This weekend it was especially great because the temperature is getting in the high 80's and it was very humid. We sleep so soundly and felt so refreshed this morning when we got up.
I took it home and set it up. I was surprised at how much air it produced. I live in an apartment and I pay the rent myself so I try to keep costs down. I have to cool the whole apartment if I want my bedroom cool and that get too costly. With the Bedfan I don't have to cool the whole apartment and that saves me money. Plus it helps me sleep better for two reasons:
Dear Mr. Tompkins,
I just wanted to tell you thank you for the wonderful night of sleep the sensation created by the Bedfan is in no way comparable to a regular fan, air conditioner, etc. and is quite the surprise! I hope you realize that. It is a new, totally new sensation. Rather something like smooth "air velvet" as it is so gentle and, oddly, so strange! It is an unfamiliar, totally different and a new sensation for me. (Sorry that I stress this so much...)
It is a sensation that one might feel when under a waterfall without getting wet. It's most awesome for me!
