    Yes...

    Even when it is below zero, I still have my fan on. When it gets too cold, it's pointed towards the wall. I have it on because the walls in the house are THIN. My dog and I can hear every little noise in the house and outside when the fan is off. I keep it on to block out...

    Ceiling Fan

    I love the ceiling fan in our bedroom.I like to have it on when I sleep.Unfortunately, my wife isn't too happy about it (because she says it makes her cold).I have been known to turn it up on high for a bit too long.But, I do try to not "freeze her out" of the bedroom.

    I'm glad to find out its not just me.

    Being very warm blooded I don't feel the cold the way others do unless it's near freezing. I'm just that way. Love me for what I am.

    White Noise

    I guess that is what they call it. It is really hard to sleep without the consistant comforting noise. It also blocks out the rest of the noise that may be going on. I started using it to circulate air but now it seems as though it is hard to sleep without it. I even take it...

    Its been a habit of mine

    since I was a kid. I like sleeping under heavy blankets and feeling tucked in, its comforting to me. That's perfect for the winter, but it sometimes makes me feel a little too warm, so I keep the fan on as well. And on top of that, I'll have one foot or leg sticking out of the...

    Hard To Find A Good One

    I have to sleep with a fan too. I'm a light sleeper and it blocks out sudden noises (dogs barking, cars, etc) that wake me up. I have to be cool to sleep, too, so that helps. Hard to find one that's loud enough or sounds right, though. Found a website about a new one coming out...

    Can'T Sleep Without It

    I can not stand silence. I can't. It kills me. I need some type of noise or else I'll go crazy. I sleep with my fan cause I need sound, also cause I can not sleep if its hot.I get uncomfortable and its irritating, but a nice breeze blowing on me is great!
