Many people have been able to lower their electric bill by as much as 50%
I have been asked about using the bFan® where there is no room under the bed. All you have to do is turn the base around like this.
I have also been asked about using the bFan® if you have a large foot-board that makes it impossible to set the fan at the end of the bed. With this design you can set it on the side of the bed as well. One of the nice features of the bFan® is that it will stand anywhere you want it and you can change the base to be either under the bed or not.
Why the bFan® Bed Cooling System works
The bFan® Bed Cooling System’s innovative design removes the heat that is generated by your body and 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.
By utilizing convection, one of the primary cooling methods of our body, we are able to sleep cooler without having to lower our thermostat to a financially challenging level.
The bFan® Bed Cooling System will help you sleep cooler at night and will help people who are hot sleepers regardless of reason, as well as help people with heath related sleep issues like night sweats. But did you know that it can also make you healthier?
Several studies have shown the benefits of sleeping cooler. These studies show that sleeping cooler can help with:
Weight loss, lowering the risk of metabolic diseases, deeper sleep for better body restoration, reduction of insomnia, aids in the promotion of anti-aging hormones and helps combat cancer.
Research conducted by the University of South Australia suggests that sleeping cooler will result in a better night's sleep, and help cure insomnia. This is because the body's core temperature actually needs to drop in order to initiate sleep. So, if you're having trouble falling and staying asleep, the bFan® Bed Cooling System could be your savior. ( http://w3.unisa.edu.au/unisanews/2004/June/insomnia.asp )
The bFan® Bed Cooling System can help produce Melatonin by lowering your core body temperature. Releasing needed melatonin not only tells your body it's time to sleep, it's a hormone that also promotes anti-aging. The cooling effect of the bFan® Bed Cooling System actually helps your body produce melatonin when you allow it to cool you sufficiently.
Melatonin regulates our cycles, mood,reproduction, weight and may help combat Cancer (web http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/10/10/melatonin.aspx#_edn4).
The bFan® Bed Cooling System can help decrease your risk of metabolic illnesses. Studies have shown that sleeping in a cooler bed helps you burn calories while awake. It also helps increase "brown" or good fat in the body, which lowers the risk of metabolic diseases like diabetes.
The bFan® Bed Cooling System will help you get a better night’s sleep. During the night, if your bed is too hot (or alternately too cold), your body will work to regulate your temperature. Doctors have stated for years that a cooler bed is linked to deeper sleep, whereas a hot bed increases wakefulness and decreases slow wave sleep.These are just a few reasons the bFan® Bed Cooling System is a healthy product (web https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24954193).

Setting Up Your bFan® Bed Cooling System
The installation of the bFan® Bed Cooling System is very simple. In this next video we will show you just how simple it is.. For this installation we installed the bFan® Bed Cooling System 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® Bed Cooling System 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 stability.See the following full video for installation instructions.
Controlling the bFan® Bed Cooling System
The bFan® Bed Cooling System is fully controllable from off to high and all points in between. When you first start using the bFan® Bed Cooling System you should start with the bFan® Bed Cooling System 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® Bed Cooling System 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® Bed Cooling System 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.
