The bFan® is not sold on Amazon,
The bFan® is a simple fan that can be placed anywhere around your bed, preferably at the foot of the bed. The bFan® delivers a fully controllable gentle, quiet breeze between your sheets. When placed at the foot of the bed the air from the bFan® will help keep you cool all night long. The fan is controlled by a remote that you will keep next to your bed, many people prefer to keep it under their pillow or on their nightstand.
Anyone that has trouble sleeping at night due to over heating. Many people are sleep deprived for their body temperature fluctuates too much during the night. This temperature swing will cause you to awaken either slightly, or totally. These brief moments will keep you from moving into a deep REM sleep. This deep sleep is necessary for mental and physical rejuvenation. Without it you will be tired and groggy all of the time. Still there are other people that will find the bFan® a savior for their electric bill. If you would like to save on your air conditioning cost, you will find the bFan® to be a wonderful addition to your sleep environment.
The bFan®’s innovative design removes the heat that is generated by your body which gets trapped inside your bed (your sheets, comforter, and mattress). This unique system enables you to sleep much cooler and deeper at night and save you money on air conditioning costs. The body will extend from 19” tall to 37” tall. The air duct is 12” wide and ¾” deep. The base is 6.25” tall X 7” deep and 12” wide. The base can be set in any direction, either under the bed or pointing outward from the bed. It can be place anywhere around the bed from the foot to the top and anywhere along the side of the bed.
About 15 years ago we built our very first fan for the bed. We called it the Bedfan. We were the very first company to bring a product like this to the market place. For many years we developed our name and gained trust in the market for having a quality product and quality customer service. We built a good following and many people knew us as the Bedfan company.
Around 2011 a former customer or ours decided that they liked our product so well that they just had to have one of their own. That following spring they sprung a surprise on use when they released their own version. They called it the Bed Fan and told the world that it was their greatest innovation yet. you can find them on Amazon if you wish to support them. Imagine, if they copied our name what else did they copy. (for legal reasons we cant say)
For the next two years we fought them with all the legal power that we could muster. We finally ended the struggle just before they filed for bankruptcy and sold all their assets to a company in China. Yet still to this day they confuse the market by using our brand name and hijacking our advertising.
For these and other reasons we were forced to change our brand name and design. We are happy no doubt with the results and are very proud to introduce the new bFan® . A new name and a new product that many people are saying is the Best Bed Fan ever, the bFan® , so please remember, when you tell your friends about us, its the bFan®
Over the last 10 years with have talked with many of our customers and listened to their ideas on what they would like to see in our next version, now the bFan®. We took those ideas and have implemented many of them into this new version that we call the bFan® . These are the things that we have improved on:
The installation of the bFan® is very simple. In this next video we will show you just how simple it is.
For this installation we installed the bFan® at the foot of the bed, which is the preferred location. From the foot of the bed the air will naturally travel along your body and exit at the top of the bed around your shoulders.
The bFan® is intended to deliver the air between the top and bottom sheets of your bed so that it is in direct contact with your body. One of the nice improvements to this new unit is that the base is extremely sturdy with a wide and deep footing as well as a lower center of gravity. This allows the user to place the fan anywhere they like and not worry about
The bFan® is fully controllable from off to high and all points in between. When you first start using the bFan® you should start with the bFan® on low and gradually work your way up. At the same time you will raise the temperature in your room by a couple degrees each night. The objective is to bring the fan to about half of full power yet still feel cool. After a few nights of doing this you will reach a point of comfort that you have never felt before. This is equilibrium and from this point you can stop changing the thermostat and start sleeping deeper and sounder.
For the first night, set the fan on low and see if it is too cool in bed for you. If your bed is too cool, you need to raise the temperature in your room for the next night. Follow this pattern until you have reached about half power on the fan and you are no longer too cool.
The point of equilibrium is the point at which the bFan® is evacuating your body heat at about the same rate that it is being created. Above equilibrium will be too cool and below equilibrium will be too warm.
By adjusting the thermostat in your house a few degrees at a time, along with adjusting the bFan® speed, you will eventually find that you are significantly reducing the amount of electricity being consumed thus lowering your electric bill at the same time.
