bFan Air Cooling Bed Fan replaces hot air with cool air for a better night’s sleep

Fall asleep enjoying your room at the perfect temperature with the bFan Air Cooling Bed Fan. The bFan directs the airflow so that hot air moves away from your body and out of your bed. Instead, this fan replaces it with cold air, which cools down your sheets. This method of airflow helps combat temperature swings and sweating while you sleep. The bFan stabilizes your temperature, which helps you achieve a deeper and more relaxed sleep. Designed to work with beds from 19 to 38 inches tall, this device has a height-adjustable design to suit a variety of beds. You can also place this unique fan anywhere along your bed, so you can find a convenient spot for you. Because you’re less likely to use the air conditioner at night, this fan might even help you conserve energy.

This is not legit! When I complained after paying for it 4 months ago and still waiting, my order got cancelled. I did NOT want it cancelled after waiting so long. They didnt want my NEGATIVITY. I don't know what happened to the money I paid because I don't have it! I don't want other people to suff


very useful 😏 no answer to questions 😏


Do you ship to uk

Lucita Day

Does it have a remote or do I have to get in and out the bed to operate

Does the bfan have a remote or smart phone control options?

Yes it does.

I've been using mine for a couple months now. I have to say, it's made a big difference for me in the summer weather without AC in the room. I can actually sleep at night and not wake up sweating. Motor is relatively quiet and keeps humming along. Thank you!

I got my bFan a few weeks ago. I have to say it exceeded my expectations and I am using it every day. I was quite hesitant when the request for extra payment for shipping came, but at least it was communicated in an honest way, not like in many other cases I have supported here on KS...
And I am really happy with this product!
Thank you!
Clement Ang

Sompong, check your email please, Steven I will send you the fix.

Still haven’t received anything, really looking forward to the fan.
Steven Larizza
I love this fan. It is just making unbearable noises when running now. How do I fix this? Thank you.
Kurt Tompkins
Daniel, please email me and we will get it resolve.
Kurt Tompkins
Daniel and Keith, Please email me. We will get this resolved.
Keith Loh
Bfan works great. We’re loving it! Unfortunately it’s making a friction based High pitch whining noise at very low speed. Soft but auudible enough to affect our sleep. Help! What can I do to fix this?
Daniel Smith
Hi Kurt, I have been living my bean Dow a few weeks now but have started having trouble with it not turning on at first. I turn the fan speed all the way up and nothing happens and then I literally have to bang the unit and then it works fine. I have checked the unit and nothing seems to be in the blower. I was hoping this would go away but it doesn’t seem too. How can I request warranty service?
Kurt Tompkins
Oddgeir, I will email you.
Oddgeir Peder Frøysa
The month of may was the warmest in many decades here in norway. Fans were sold out in almost every store. I see that many people have recieved theire bedfans long ago. I havent heard anything. When are you shipping to norway? Tired of waiting, and tired of not getting any sleep beacuse of the heat.
Eban Hernandez
That fixed it! Thank you, it works great!
Kurt Tompkins
Eban, Check your email, i sent you some info on how we can fix this.
Eban Hernandez
Received my fan today, plugged it in, I could hear the fan noisily spin a couple of times and stop. When i tried again and turned up the speed to max, I can hear it try to spin, but it doesn't do anything else.
I received the bFan in Thailand today. Solid built quality and runs pretty silent. I will probably test it tonight but so far, I am very pleased with it.
Mara Nagler
I have to say, I have been using my bfan for almost 2 weeks since I got it and it is life changing. I tell everyone this is my favorite belonging ever. Thanks so much for delivering an awesome product and finally getting me something that keeps me cool at night!
Kurt Tompkins
Thank you Steve, I feel like a proud daddy.
Steve Angell
I wanted to find a better way to share this message, but only found this comment section. I have been using the bFan for two weeks now and it is absolutely fantastic.... It is the best purchase i have made for ages and almost unique in in the huge amount of value to me in one item.
I have had better nights sleep with this running that i have had for ages. It is quiet and, with the great design, only cools me not my partner. Plus the variable speed is perfect for the different temperatures in the room. All in all you have done a great thing in this invention and the engineering makes it versatile and very effective. So glad you thought of it, overcame all the manufacturing challenges and shipped it to the backers. I wish you huge success in this endear moving forward Regards Steve Angell

Hi Li Ming, did you have to pay additional for shipment?

Hi Kurt, I am based in Singapore but I have not received my bfan yet. Can you help to expedite? Thanks.
Jayme Gillette
Do they make a shorter chute? Mine sticks up like 7-8” because we have a thinner mattress!
M. A.
Ok thanks for responding.
Kurt Tompkins
Marcus, it will be going out in the next couple days, Kurt

People in my country, over in Asia have received the Bfan, but mine is still in awaiting shipment eversince 22nd April and not updated yet. What is going on?
Lisa Boyd
I finally had the need to set up my bFan in Germany. Omg....this is the most amazing fan!!! And everyone that I've shown it to and let them feel the effect has wanted one of their own! So now I need a referral link!
Elaine Williams
Kurt, I received my Bfan a few weeks ago, but it was so cold that I needed heat, not cooling. I finally set it up yesterday as we were having 90 degree weather. started it and went to use the bathroom.
I was worried that my cats might be scared by the covers poofing up like that (I have 3 that all sleep with me). I came back into the bedroom and found that my little girl cat Xenia was enjoying her new game of pouncing on the covers as they billowed upward. The other 2 were rather blase about it too. The one that normally goes under the covers loves that he doesn't have to wait for me to lift the covers, and he enjoyed the cool breeze also.
I love love love my bFan! I live in hot and humid southern Indiana and I don't have AC, and the bFan kept me cool and sweat free all night. I did have to put it at the side of the foot of the bed, but it worked just great. I know others have complained about the noise, but mine was extremely quiet.
Thanks for creating this product..I know I will be sleeping more comfortably during the summer for years to come. Glad I was a backer on this, and i will be recommending it to my friends.
Leong Li Ming
I live in hot and humid Singapore, so was pretty skeptical, but leaving the air-conditioning on all night was running up my electricity bill something awful, so I thought I would foot the cost for the bfan and (most painful) the shipping. It arrived about a week and a half ago and the positioning took a bit of tweaking, but have been very happy with its ability to keep things bearable in our 28C nights (usually feels like 32-36 due to humidity) with a couple hours of aircon on low just to get things started. We're currently experiencing a bit of a heatwave but the bfan is coping admirably - fingers-crossed it keeps going. Not all Kickstarters have lived up to expectations, but this one is doing great so far!
Kurt Tompkins
Dan, and as you will see, all the links lead back to Brookstone, They think they can just claim our work as theirs. This is the same crap they did to me years ago. Help me out here people, they are taking away what you helped to create. Thank you Kurt
Dan Thompson
I received my fan a week or two ago (sorry, my memory for timeline is terrible!) It was delivered VERY professionally with proper reporting papers for customs/duty (I'm not in US.) The instructions were perfect; made the minimal assembly easy and quick.
The bFan was a gift for my partner. It is the BEST fan for sleeping EVER. Since the first use, I hear every day how wonderful it is, how it does all the things no fan or air conditioner could do.
The construction of the item itself is also exceptional. It's no amateur job-- this looks (and operates) like the product of a seasoned production company.
I have nothing but accolades for this item. It's spectacular!
I've had some bad Kickstarter experiences; this is not one of them! Hands down the best Kickstarter project I've backed. I am thrilled.
Thank you for the regular updates and attention to quality and detail!!!
Ryan Burchfield
I received one of my two fans and wanted to check on the status of the second fan? As I wait, I have to say this is one of the best fans ever! I've been using it for about a week now, and is the best sleep I've had in a long time. I don't even have to have the AC on the fan works so well.
René Simonsen
I had a spare cable, and tested it out. There's a strange buzz or hum coming from it when running, as if something is slightly touching the fan. I'm not sure if that is indeed the case, or if it's supposed to sound like this.
René Simonsen
Just received my bfan, but unfortunately I received the wrong power cord for my region..
Kurt Tompkins
Thank you Graham.
Graham Tubbs
Mine arrived on Friday - so far so good. Tonight is the real test however.... Wife seemed bemused, but soon complained it was too cold! Going to put it on a timer to have burts of chill through the night rather than constant. Good work Kurt!
Albert Sharp
I completed the survey back when it was sent the first time.
I received my unit a few months ago. I set it up and tested it then. SUPER quiet and very powerful. Easily lifts my sheet and comforter at around 3/4 power. Didn’t actually use it until the last few weeks due to colder weather.
Having used it a few times, I love it. I would absolutely and enthusiastically recommend this to anyone who runs hot and sweats at night.
I have read negative experiences of units not received yet or shipping cost changes and that is unfortunate and I too would be upset if I had that experience. That is a problem that I hope gets sorted out.
Having said that, the product is amazing, exceeds my expectations, and I wish I would have had it years ago.
I've used by bFan these last two nights (a fairly low setting, under the duvet but over the flat sheet), and they were some of the deepest, uninterrupted, most restful sleep I've had in a long time. This is probably the best and most useful kickstarter I've ever invested in.
Madonna Hancock
we love our BFan, we received it earlier this year. We are having some sound with the motor, we are wondering if it needs to be oiled? Thanks
Mia McCroskey
I received my bFan when the northeast was having day after day of cold and week after week of snowstorms. I set it up and tried it out and my feet were freezing. But I knew that wasn't a fair test, so I waited. It's finally gotten into the 90s the last few days, dropping into the 70s at night. I refuse to resort to air conditioning in May! I have my bFan plugged into a smart plug, so well ahead of bedtime I tell Alexa to turn it on. When I get into bed, the top sheet is floating and the bed is cool. I keep it on all night at a low-ish setting, just enough so that the sheet hovers above me like magic. To the other backers still waiting, it's not a scam and it's worth the wait. And no, Kurt didn't pay me to say this. I'm just a satisfied backer.
Kurt, I just received my bFan and have to say it is the most amazing thing that has happened to me. I sleep/married with a skeptic and when I told her I backed your project - you should have seen her face! Yesterday was our first night with the bFan and the skeptic is now asking me for 3 more - because its the most amazing idea/concept and it works! If any backer out there that is complaining about not having received your bFan or you believe this is a scam, please send me your email and I’ll paypal you 110% of what you paid. I’m in the market and I am looking to jump in line for another 3-5 bFans. Keep up the great work.

Still not replying..
Christine Clarke
Still not shipped. Apparently "they need to be built". Anyone who has not sent money - I would advise you not to.
Christine Clarke
Despite the "Item shipped" email, according it FedEx they haven't received the item. Unsurprised.
My backer number is 2011 and I already did my survey yet i still have not received my bfan. Would you please check my order things?
Barbette Norfleet
I went back and checked and I am backer #27. I don't understand why so many have received their fan and I have not. I would have thought I would have been one of the first to receive it. When should I expect to receive it?
Ali van Dam
Hi Kurt - please could you take a minute to address the concerns of those of us who won’t be able to come up with an extra ~$100 for shipping? I’d much rather get my fan than ask for a refund, but since backing this project I’ve retired due to ill health, and I just don’t have that kind of money lying around. Let us know as soon as you have any info for us. Thanks.
Christine Clarke
I see your professionalism continues. Let's talk BS:
Ordered and paid for A YEAR ago
"Ready to ship but need money" 11 April 18
$66.50 extra shipping paid 11 April 18
Awaiting fulfilment email 11 April 18
Awaiting shipment email 12 April 18
"Ready to ship but need more money" email 21 April 18
Apparently that was a mistake and I get another "awaiting fulfilment" email 21 April 18
Awaiting shipment email 22 April 18
Shipped email 27 April 18 According to Fedex tracking it hasn't moved since then. You had a business running, shipping products. You should have known how to get things from one country to another. You could have put a note on the original Kickstarter saying "there may be additional shipping charges". You didn't. You took money and then asked for more. Then when people complain, you don't hold your hands up and admit YOUR mistake, you argue with them for complaining that they're ripped off. I wish I had never heard of your company because this has been categorically the WORST Kickstarter I have every backed. I have had things shipped from the USA before and NONE have made a big a hash of it as you have. And the correct address to someone you don't know is Ms Clarke.
Barbara Cales
Kurt, thanks for the instructions to re-seat my fan after shipping... It now works fine. I will let you know how much I like it after I have used it for awhile.
