    You are in luck today.

    This is a direct comparison review between the three most popular currently available twin window fans:

    Bionaire BW2300 Twin Window Fan with Remote Control
    Holmes HAWF2043 Twin Window Fan
    Honeywell HW-628 Enviracaire Twin Window Fan

    If you are interested in purchasing any of those widow fans, read on…

    I didn’t intend to have to do this review because I didn’t intend to purchase more than one of these fans. I can tell you now that all of these fans are super cheaply designed and built and none of these fans are perfect, but in my opinion, one is worse than the others.

    Holmes HAWF2043 Twin Window Fan: my rating – 3 of 5 stars

    I first purchased the Holmes HAWF2043 unit. It was lightweight and fit the window nicely although I had trouble with the extender which is located on the right side. The locks for the extender are located on the right side along the top and bottom edge of the fan, which is supremely stupid because as soon as you place the fan in your window frame and put weight on it, the bottom lock locks and you can not move the extender. I mean, what rocket scientist thought of this? So you have to unlock the locks before you place the unit in the window AND keep weight off the bottom lock until you have the extender adjusted to where you want it. This is not easy. And the lock mechanisms can be difficult to move. At the time, I could not imagine anything worse, but I was wrong as I found out with the extenders on the Honeywell unit, which I will go into in the next paragraph. This Holmes unit has the best placement of the power cord which is in the lower left corner… the location is high enough as not to interfere with the bottom of the window frame. This unit has two speeds, high and low. The controls are easy to operate. In fact, there is only one button and two switches. The button cycles through the high and low manual speed settings and then though the automatic temperature presets which are at 60, 65, 70, 75 & 80 degrees fahrenheit. If you set it at one of the temperature presets, the unit will turn off once the room reaches that temperature. It seemed to work although I did not have the opportunity to see how accurate that function is. The two switches set the direction of the fans to either intake or exhaust which can be done on each fan independently, so you could have one fan on intake and the other on exhaust for quickly exchanging room air with fresh air. This unit has 8.5 inch fans and they are relatively quiet at both speeds, naturally high is louder than low, but don’t expect silence. I own a Kill-A-Watt P3 energy meter and this unit used 46 watts on low and 63 watts on high. I would have been happy with this unit except that two days into using it, the right fan started working intermittently. Of course, that is unacceptable. Returning. I give this fan 3 out of 5 stars because I feel that if you get a good one you’ll be happy with it, but don’t expect anything great. FYI: Holmes is a division of Sunbeam.

    Honeywell HW-628 Enviracaire Twin Window Fan: my rating 2 of 5 stars

    So with the right fan not working correctly on the Homes, I ordered the Honeywell HW-628. As soon as I saw it, I knew I was not going to be happy with it. For one thing, the unit has 7 inch fans compared with 8.5 inch on the Holmes. So in order to move as much air, the fans would have to run much faster and the unit will be much louder. Time to install… I previously mentioned that the extenders on the Holmes were poorly designed, but the extenders on this were MUCH worse. First of all, this unit has two shorter extenders on both the right and left sides instead of one longer extender like the Holmes has. Second, the four extender locks are, get this, located on the BACK of the unit, the side facing out the window! How are you supposed to set those? It was impossible for me. I ended up jamming the extenders into the window frame in order to keep them extended. Okay, so I finally get the unit in the window and turned it on. I found out immediately that my thoughts about the smaller fans, higher fan speed…

    At this Price – Take it apart and fix it yourself, August 30, 2004

    This review is from: Bionaire BW2300 Twin Window Fan with Remote Control (Kitchen)

    We got this fan a few months ago. I read the reviews and was concerned about the temp gauge not working but for the price I gave it a shot anyway. I asked the sales man about the return rate for the produce and he said that not a one had been returned (I didn’t really believe him but went ahead with the purchase anyway).

    Sure enough I plugged it in and the temp started rising, went up to HI and stayed there. Other than that the fan was great. Quiet, strong, the remote worked good. I went back to the store and saw that the display model was doing the same thing. I couldn’t believe that they would design the unit in such a way that the circuits would heat up the thermometer. I figured that some poor kid in the factory had missed a step in the assembly process.

    Last night I took it apart and found the thermometer wire. It was laying across the circuit board. All I did was move the wire thermometer away from the circuit board and when I put it back together and plugged it in, it worked like it should have in the first place. Took less than 20 minutes to fix it.

    Bionaire Quality Control really slipped on this one. 5 stars for a good product, minus one for the trouble.

    If you want to fix it here is how I did it, but if you break yours I accept no responsibility. The instructions state “Do NOT attempt to repair or adjust any electrical or mechanical functions on this unit. Doing so will void the warranty.”

    UN-PLUG THE FAN. Unscrewed all the screws in the back (7 total I think). Then use a flat-head screw driver to open it from the side that doesn’t have the built in extender. I couldn’t figure out how to open it all the way but was able to open it about 35 degrees, like a clam, and remove the plastic cover that shields the circuits. The thermometer is the white plastic wire that is only attached to the circuit board on one end, not the round metal thing with a hole in the middle, that is the speaker. I stretched the thermometer wire out to the side, away from the circuit board and the put it back together.

    This review is from: Bionaire BW2300 Twin Window Fan with Remote Control (Kitchen)

    This fan is of great value. It will quietly refresh your room during a warm summer night, allowing you to sleep and benefit from air circulation in those houses where there is no central air conditionning. It has 3 speeds and 3 air flow settings (In, Out, Exchange: one fan works in and the other out to exchange the room’s air with the outside air) to rapidly get the room to the desired confort level.

    It also has an Automatic mode that controls the fan’s operation until the desired temperature is reached. This feature is not ideal since it will have the fan starting and stopping every 2-3 minutes when the temperature rises back to above the desired temperature.

    Altogether, I am very satisfied with this fan, even though I do not use the Automatic feature. It is exceptionnaly quiet I find and the air flow features get the job done in no time.
