Hell Yes - i cannot sleep without the sound of a fan. It gives you the sound and the needed circulation.

Fan, Dryer, Dishwasher... - It's awesome to read all the stories here! I can't sleep without some sort of 'humming' noise. My 1st preference is a fan. Even the fan on in the bathroom across from my room works. Or the dryer going, or the dishwasher on... I like the ceiling fan...

Sound - I live in a very hot area so it is very normal for people to use several fans during the summer, but even in the winter I need my fan to sleep. I have grown accustomed to the sound during sleep. I find a completely quite room is harder to sleep in that a room with some...

White Noise - Its not a fan, its an air filter thing but its the same concept. I used to sleep through the day so that I could stay up at night when nobody else was around. I couldn't sleep with the erratic noises from the T.V. and such so I would use this to drown those sounds...

I cant sleep without the noise and it has to be "freezing" in my room in order for me to be able to actually get sleep. If my dad would allow it, I would have my AC on all throughout winter. hahah

Fan Of Any Fan - Ever since I was little I needed to have a fan to sleep. As a child when I slept the noise would sometimes irritate me, but I felt like I needed it to fall asleep. I am prone to hypnagogic sensitivity and phenomena, so as a kid I felt like if a fan was pointed at...

It's Suffocating - I feel like I can't breathe when the fan's not on. I like the swishing noise and when it's not on, the silence suffocates me. You can hear every little thing moving in the night - starting from the tick-tock of the clock to the occasional car driving in the...

No Fan? No Way. - What can i say, I'm a fan of fans. They lull me to sleep, they give my constantly thinking mind something to focus on when i'm attempting slumber. The sound calms my 7 million jumbling bouncing erratic thoughts. Fans calm me, especially at night. I run a fan...

Always - I always have a fan on in the bedroom. Started when i was in college for some "white noise' so that I could sleep and have just kept it. If I can't have the fan, than I have music playing. Funny how the silence keeps me awake at night if it isn't there.
