This little fan makes a huge difference in a small west facing room with no AC. Works well in both directions - love that option especially if you don't like papers to blow around because of fan breeze. I had this professionally installed so I can't comment on ease of installation but it didn't take him long to set it up. I am most impressed that it is stable enough to use all 4 speeds on the wall unit. I have another fan that wobbles and makes noise if you try anything over level two but not this one. I did not want a fan with remote control unit or light option and this works perfectly.

Pros: Works in Both Directions, Attractive, Quiet, Circulates Air Well, Range of Speeds

Best Uses: Air Circulation, Smaller Rooms, Decorative, Alternative to AC
