Follow-up ramblings on the fans.....
We have a MaxxAir fan. It is great except that at times when on low
speed the motor or fan blades set up a resonance. It moans slightly.
This moaning can vary in pitch especially if there is any outside breeze.
It's not loud but it's there sometimes. It seems to be more when on battery
power. Less when we're plugged in and battery voltage is max.
It does not moan on med or hi speed.
2nd-- The MaxxAir can be bought with hinges so you can go on the roof
and easily tip it to the side for cleaning the underside and screen.
This is a GOOD thing. Sooner or later the screen will get bugs or dust or
cobwebs on it and you'll need to clean it. This is especially true if your
fan is over you bed where your wife can lay there and look up at it and
then nag you about cleaning it!!
If I had it do do over I'd probably consider the Fantastic fan with a maxxair
cover only because I'd hope the Fantastic fan is a little quieter.
I have not listened to a Fantastic fan so I do not really know if it's any
