Very impressed with this fan
This fan was purchased to replace a similar model that was nearly 50 yrs. old when the motor went out. Looked online and found the air & water site had one that looked like our old one. The specs for this fan were helpful in deciding to purchase. We ordered it and it came faster than many other product as that have shipped to us from California (3 days as opposed to 10-14 days.) It came well packaged. The output of this fan is far greater than the old one. Really cools the entire house on low and medium speeds. It is in a 2nd floor window and really creates air flow all throughout the house. At night it really cools the house down and when it starts heating up in the morning, we close the door to the 2nd floor and close the windows on the main floor. It remains really cool on the first floor. When it cools off out side, we open the door and the windows and cool the entire house again. Friends are amazed that we do not have central air as it keeps the house do cool. It performs better than our old fan, so we are looking forward to years of using this product in the summer. Also pleased that it is Made In America.

Really good fan, it moves the air fast.
I ordered this fan for our metal 3 car garage. The shop side is insulated and remains cool on a hot day; however, the car side is not insulated and gets way to warm and humid. I chose this fan because of the size, it's reversible and the ease of installation. Even though the installation instructions are for a window that slides up, I changed the orientation for my window that slides to the left. It works perfectly on it's side. The garage is now a great place to work. The only thing that would make it better is if it had a thermostat so I could leave it on all the time. Otherwise I highly recommend this fan for our application.

number one fan
The only problem was it took to long to come we expected it that Tuesday, but when it got here it was right of time. The week I ordered it was on a Friday and it didn't get here until the next Friday and during that week it was a heat wave 90 degrees and better so when we finally got it and install it was wonderful, it drew all the hot air out of the house, we install it in the kitchen window which is right next to our laundry room so all the heat from the cooking and using the dryer goes right into the backyard it also cools the whole house and keeps the humidity way down I love it can't see myself ever living without it, people have come here and want to know where I got it from so look out for some orders(:)

This fan cools the entire house
The only thing I don't like about this fan is the placement of the holes to mount it. The holes are positioned on the fan in a place that won't line up with our window frames. We use the fan by propping it in the window and it works fine. It would be nice to have it permanently in the window but it cools the house the way we use it.

Check to be sure your window is big enough
our window overall is big enough that the fan will fit. However we will have to remove both upper and lower window panes for it to function properly. This leaves no way to use the weather guard. It leaves the fan and house open to the elements. At this point I'm going to have build or put another window on the outside of the house and figure a way to close it during rainy or stormy weather. This has turned into a big job and more expense. Maybe our fault for not understanding how the fan needs to fit or not understanding that the window opening needs to be twice the size of the fan.(vertical)

fair
the only thing wrong with this fan is I cannot run it on the 2-3 position- higher speeds in either direction because it vibrates to much. However I have not contacted the manufacturer about this issue, but I will. A little disappointed because it is USA manufactured item. It is a little loud in the 2-3 position but that's to be expected when moving that much air but I'm sure the vibration issue is part of that also.

Great Product!
I purchased two fo these and installed them in a vertical sliding window because my house does not have an attic for a traditional whole house fan. These work every bit as well as the whole house fan I had in my previous home. They run very smooth and the noise level is low considering how much air these fans move. You can stand in the doorway of the room where they are installed and feel the breeze entering the room. I had an issue with another fan I ordered first from Air n Water and they were super easy to work with to return it and swap for these fans. I highly recommend this product and Air N Water, their customer service is top notch!

Great breeze maker
I don't like AC. Have wanted a whole house fan but hubby says no. I bought this fan because I could install it. Best investment in years. Quickly cools my house (1750 sq ft) and makes a nice breeze. In order for it to function at it's peak you need to remove the window screen. Only draw back is that it's loud in the room it's installed in. The 9155 Air King Window Exhaust Fan is not as powerful but is quieter. I use this one in another part of the house. Not sure how energy efficient this is but I expect it's better than using AC.

Moving the air
Over this past weekend I installed the air king window fan; it wasn't difficult at all and it preforms very good. I closed most of the windows down to about 2 inches and could feel the wind (air) passing through the rooms. On power #1 it's quite; power #2 same thing then power #3 the fan rattles on the sides where the panels are extended. I might have to stuff an old sock in the panel to stop that sound.

Awesome! I've been totally impressed!
The expense estimates of having a "whole-house" fan installed in the attic were upwards of $1500! In order to save on electricity and A/C usage - I wanted a whole-house fan to pull the cool air into the house at night. By shutting the windows in the morning, when I get home from work - it's still cool inside! I installed this Air King fan in an upstairs window in my 1940sq ft 3 story town house. It was pretty easy to install and it's great that you can shut the window after the fan is installed! The fan works like a champ. Quieter than I thought it would be. Open a window downstairs - turn it on upstairs and you can immediately feel a very strong breeze! GREAT RESULTS - GREAT PRICE!

This product has met my expectations in a whole house fan.
House is single level over 1800sf and placed the fan in a back bedroom. We open a few strategic windows elsewhere in the house and with the fan on Low, we have a noticeable breeze through the entire house. Our house is pretty tight and it was taking several hours after the outside temp dropped to comfortable before the a/c stopped cycling. Now we can make the inside temp match the outside temp in less than 10 minutes. It also removes burnt cooking smoke in about the same time. The window I chose was not within the stated size, so I was on my own for installation. Without the wings, the fan is square and has flat edges, so it was very easy to adapt. Being able to close the window behind the fan allows us to lock the house as we always have, use our a/c and heat as normal and easily deal with blowing rain. So far, this fan has met my expectations completely and the order and delivery process was simple and straight forward. Everything related to the order and delivery happened just as stated, good job.

This product replaced on old workhorse!
I purchased this fan from Air & Water after the first company told me it was in stock and then later when I asked where it was, I was told that the manufacturer was having problems and it wouldn't be available until Oct! The fan that this replaced was bought back in the 90's and cooled my house. Since then, I have been using it on a timer in my very hot garage each year. I use it to cool the garage as well as provide ventilation for drying my garlic and onions each year. The new Air King just went right in where the old one was and continued with the process. The strongest 3 speed intake/outtake fan that I could find for a window.

attic fan making a difference
we needed to do something about the 120 degree temps on the second level of our cape cod - and this fan did it - you can feel the air movement even on the low setting - it's a good looking fan - good aesthetic - and easy to operate - and seemingly simple to install (we had someone do it) - it is noisy on the high settings - but that's to be expected - but you don't really hear it until you head upstairs -

This fan does exactly what I needed it to do. The housing seemed a little on the light duty side, but once properly assembled in the window, it's quite sturdy. It's a little loud at top speed, but not much more than a smaller fan with half the power. At top speed it pulls air through 100 ft loft and cools an area of about 3,000 square feet in short order. I would purchase this again in a heartbeat.

We use this to cool a good-sized apartment with a large skylight. Boston is not the hottest city in the country, but a sunny summer day makes the apartment bake. We turn this fan on in the evening, and the place cools fast. The difference between this and other window fans is greater than the specs would make you think. The one defect is that the low speed setting isn't very low. In power use, noise, and air flow, it's like high on an ordinary window fan. Not a big problem for us, but if you want a quiet low-speed to run all night, this fan can't provide it.

This was a fan for my mom's home. We've always had the fan in the window venting the whole house every summer. We wouldn't ever be without it. Our original fan was vibrating and seemed to be on its last legs. So I ordered this Air King 9166 Exhaust Fan and hoped it would come close to what the fans were made of some 30 years ago. Well, I opened the box, and for starters, took a look @ the heavy metal wire cage on both sides of the blade. Wow, it even looked like it was better made than the antique sitting on the window sill. I couldn't believe it! I hung it on the screws that were used to mount our old fan and it fit perfectly! I didn't even have to move the screws. Wow again. I plugged it in and turned it on exhaust. This fan exceeds my expectations for sure. The cars aren't as well made as they used to be but this fan sure is! Highly recommended.

We installed this fan in a window of stairway cupula. It is located in the top most portion of a beach house. It draws the hot air from the lower portion of the house and vents it to the outside. It is a bit noisy of the high speed but we find we can let it run on low and not notice it in the evening. It has an industrial look to it however we did not find anything else on the market with better looks. The best feature is the ability to close the window behind it for the winter. Installation was fairly easy. We did hard wire it to a switch so we can shut it off from downstairs without climbing the winding staircase to the 3rd floor. I would purchase it again.

Purchased this fan to reduce the use of the AC - bring fresh air into home. We've had it running since it was installed, no problems. Once the weather cools down a bit, we turn off the AC and use the fan. It brings fresh air into our home and keeps the house cool. Quality product. Suited needs. A little awkward in assembly. Once installed it's very safe and secure. Performs very well. Love the air flow switch.

Purchased this fan to cool the upstairs area of our house in the evening to reduce the amount of time we needed to run the air conditioner. The product is performing better than we anticipated. The whole house fans are very powerful and the intake and exhaust features are terrific. The amount of air that the fan moves is very impressive and cools down our two story, high ceiling, 1900 square foot home vey quickly. We jokingly say that the fans create our own little micro-climate! Was just as shown in your web site. Came well packaged and nothing was broken. The fan is sturdy and fits into our window as we had anticipated from the description and measurement provided. No surprises or disappointments. For all the reasons cited above. As I have only had the fans for about a month, I can't speak to the long term operations but I hope it also holds up to and extends past the guarantee provided at purchase.

After 24 years, my Sears exhaust fan stopped running. I really didn't think I would be able to replace it with another that had as much power. However, I received my Air King from you yesterday and put it in the window today. It is a very adequate xmlnsnt for my old fan. In fact, it may be more powerful. Although I don't like to shop online, I must say this is one time that I'm glad I relented. Thanks for the great fan and hopefully it will last another 24 years for me!

I purchased this product to help cut the cost of cooling my home and also because I wanted to shut the air conditioner off more at night and run a fan instead. Upon receipt, I thought it looked well-built; it wasn't made of plastic like so many things you buy. It's performing great. I would recommend this product to others. Its great: it moves air, cools the house down, is easy to install, and overall just a wonderful product.

Need advice? More information?

Question:
Why did you buy this item?
Answer:
review were good
- Janice D. on 04-18-2014
Answer:
I was looking for a solidly constructed exhaust fan, preferably with metal blades and housing that was wide enough to span the 36" needed to properly mount in my apartment windows. Though this fan was definitely at the higher end of what I wanted to spend, compared to the competition, which was almost exclusively all plastic, it had the more powerful motor and the more substantial construction. Being as I expect to own this for years, the extra $40-$50 seemed worth it.

Answer:
I purchased this fan because the 50 yr old fan that I have had for 37 yrs. had the motor burn up. Was looking for something comparable. Hope this one has the same workmanship and quality of the old one to last through the years! That is the reason I ordered it today. Not a full review as I will make that after I get it and see if it is as good.

Question:
My husband bought this model a few years ago. I loved the way it pulled air but couldn't use #2 or #3. The noise level on #1 was annoying but it was a worthwhile trade for cooler air. Has the noise level improved in the last 3 years? Summer just hit Hawaii and I have no cross ventilation. HELP please.
- Beth D. on 2014-06-09
Answer:
Do not know why you could not use the #2 and #3 speeds. We use the lowest speed most of the time. We did think it was loud on #1 at first but it seems to have quieted down. Part of our noise was mostly vibration from the way it sat in the window, One of the other reasons ours was loud was because we have extremely wide windows and have the extenders opened fully, and also have a small board on the sides added to the window itself. This added some vibration factors to the equation. Our fan is in a 2nd story window so we don't notice it as much. Daughter;s bedroom is on the 2nd floor and she says some days she thinks it is louder than our 50 yr. old one that it replaced, and other times she doesn't think it is too loud. But a bit of noise is acceptable in exchange for the way it moves air and cools the house! And as I said, we use it on the two lower speeds more than the highest speed. What they should do is add a set screw on the panel sides that would hold the panels securely and that would cut down on the vibration and the extra noise. The set screw should be a thumb screw welded to all 4 corners of the fan itself that you could adjust easily from the front. This would allow you to get the adjustment right and cut down on vibration that causes some additional noise. Hope this helps answer your question.

Answer:
We love this model! It's doing great thusfar in our turn-of-the-century home in Baltimore. However, it is loud! The fan is sitting in a window on the first landing, and is some distance from our living areas. It works great as ambient noise to keep my 4-month old grandson asleep! It would not be ideal in an area where you're trying to have a conversation.
- Janice D. on 2014-06-10
Answer:
Yes it is much better!!!
- Eli C. on 2014-06-09
Answer:
It's still pretty noisy but I use mine in the garage, so it doesn't bother me. Hope this helps.
- Anita M. on 2014-06-09
Answer:
Beth- we have the same model. Same problem. The balance of the fan is terrible. Can not operate on 2 or 3. It has since stopped working all together. Thought because it is made in US it would be a long lasting item. Wrong! Your best bet as buy something else. Sorry you made the same mistake I did. We had very limited use of ours.
- David E. on 2014-06-09
Answer:
Noise as in vibration or just the fan. The fan is loud but I put it in a room where it does not matter. I put it on exhaust so it pulls air in the other windows. It keeps my house cool. And if you are talking about vibration I don't have a problem with that. I love this fan. We had temps around 98 last summer here in Tenn. and we don't have air. The fan works great.
- sherry j. on 2014-06-09
Answer:
This is a very noisy fan no matter what setting you use. I wouldn't recommend it for inside a house; however. it works well in a garage.
- Bonnie N. on 2014-06-09
Answer:
The noise resembles a jet engine when on maximum setting--great for evacuating hot air from the house but would be too loud for sleeping if in close proximity.
- Michelle C. on 2014-06-09
Answer:
Beth: I finally got this thing installed today (July 7th). It's 87 degrees here now and it is amazing how much air this thing is moving through my apartment. I had expected to have given up and turned on the A/C by now, but so far, so good. As far as noise level: YES, this thing is LOUD! Like you, I find #1 tolerable, but still not quiet in any way. Level 2 is already getting silly and #3 is downright ridiculous. Also, the fan is not so well balanced that it doesn't vibrate when on #3. Frankly, I would not have expect a fan of this caliber to not have been better balanced. As far as noise, realize that this is virtually a commercial level product. It is overkill for my large 1 bdrm apartment and perhaps for your application as well. It would be nice if their #1 was about 1/2 the speed of what it is, with #2 being somewhere between the lowered #1 and their #3. However, if you can put this thing someplace where you aren't right next to it, or trying to watch TV or listen to music next to it (i.e. and attic, extra room, etc), it truly does an amazing job of circulating air and keeping the living space cool.

Question:
My window meets the dimensions, but the screen opening is only 22 inches when the double hung window is fully open. Is this okay? Or do I need the 27 inches of screen opening?
- Anonymous on 2014-07-13
Answer:
After speaking with the manufacturer, as long as unit meets the dimensions of the window the 27 inches is not necessary.
- CustomerServiceSTAFF on 2014-07-22
Answer:
Don't waste you money on this fan. the one I bought has failed in less than a year with probably less than 500 hrs of use. I could never run it on medium or high because it shook so much. Not vibrate, shook. I should have sent it back immediately.
- David E. on 2014-07-13
Answer:
If you are implying that you will mount the fan inside with the screen to the outside of the fan's frame, then it seems pretty obvious that a) you don't need the clearance and b) you'll be either blowing through or sucking through the screen, depending on whether you are using exhaust or intake mode. If you don't mind the extra cleaning you'll probably be doing, there should be no problem. If, on the other hand, you expect to mount the 27" fan into a 22" opening, that's just as obviously not going to happen! FWIW - My fan is mounted to the inside of the window (double hung) with one side mounted to the wall, the other, attached to the window frame via 'L' brackets. This allows me to open or close the window behind (i.e. to the outside) of the fan when raining. A minor amount of insulation takes care of any openings around the fan. Works very well for me.

Question:
We have vinyl window frames. Do we have to mount the fan in with screws or can we simply put it in the window without permanently mounting it?
- Anonymous on 2014-08-10
Answer:
Per the manufacturers installation manual: "The large number of window styles and types makes it impossible to describe one universal installation procedure. Whichever method you choose, you should allow the window to be closed easily for security and protection of home furnishings against the weather."
