This fan was a great price and is working very well. I am very pleased with this purchase and will buy again. More generally I have been happy with most of my purchases at Sears.
It is not high velocity. If you had used high velocity fan, you would know. I needed a high velocity fan for my photo studio. This is just a normal fan. Not high velocity at all. Returning.
This fan is very loud, even on low. The knobs constantly loosen themselves from the vibration. The worst part is, there is no way to open the fan to clean the blades. The manual says to use a vacuum, it would take a high power vac to accomplish that and even then, there is still grime on the blades that need washed off. Too expensive to be a disposable fan!
