    A True Fanatic!

    I started sleeping with the fan when I was 12 years old because my house where I grew up did not have air conditioning. I noticed myself turning it on before bed in the winter because I had trouble sleeping during that winter, even if it meant I needed an extra blanket. Now...

    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!

    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...

    And I Still Take Pleasure From It

    I started sleeping with a fan, idk, maybe when I was 18. I'm not sure how old the fan was, maybe 13 or 14. But boy she could blow the chrome off a trailer hitch. Very reliable, a one man fan. I remember the time I came home early one day. It was hotter than hades and there was...

    Paradox

    I know it is going to sound like a paradox but I like my body to be hot and my head to be cool when I go to sleep. It just doesn't work any other way for me. I started on being a side sleeper without a fan, I've switched and gotten to sleeping on my stomach with the fan going...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    That way I know what goes on around me. You have to twist the knob and force the door hopefully generating enough noise to wake me. The closed door makes me safe and secure.
