IMG_9767.PNG
It was 89 degrees out and I felt the fan clear across my gym (a 2 car garage) I still sweat but between sets I had 15-30 seconds of getting blasted by the fan! This thing is awesome (however; it’s quite loud!) my girlfriend asked if I am getting one next to the bed next?) lol maybe I will lol the noise will definitely put my to sleep! I was born in Da Bronx, NY and as a city baby I need noise to sleep!

As a teenager I would sleep with my Heavy Metal blasting and the light on lol

Anyway; back to the fan! I have to look at the CFMs but it’s definitely stronger than any non commercial fan! It moves a lot of air! 3,670 cfm!

Companies like Holmes don’t even list the cfm’s of their fans! How is someone supposed to buy a fan intelligently?
Here’s a letter from Holmes parent company:
“Dear Louis,

Thank you for contacting Bionaire, a brand of Jarden Consumer Solutions.

The initial email received was inquiring about the CFM rating on our blizzard fan, however, we do not rate this and as such have no CFM number to provide you. There is no industry standard on how to test CFM’s so this is not a rating we use on most of our fans.”

So what your telling me is there’s no way to rate the power of your fans and I should just purchase your fans because you call it a Blizzard? Why because it’s lower than most of the other fans on the market? I had their remote control blizzard and their desk fan is surprisingly stronger than the large floor mount blizzard! But neither are anywhere close to the Air King!

This fan is awesome! I bought it for my home gym and I can feel it from one side of my 2 car garage clear to the other side while standing in front of my dumbbell rack! It is however; quite loud! It also rattles! I have to see if the cage around the fan loosened during shipping.

Other than that it is what it is: a kickass industrial fan! If you have a home gym or work in your garage for extended times or maybe have a finished basement and want cooling, this is awesome!

**Update** October 13th 2014
I just moved my fan from the home gym to the basement storage and replaced it with a heater. Saturday it was really cold in the garage! Well; cold to be working out in shorts. The heater felt good!
