Its so that the fan can run to cool the room down to a certain temperature and then shut the fan off till its needed again.

So it can tell what temp the room is and turn the fan off and on accordingly?

Fan is supposed to be excellent condition. $100 fairly local. I’ll get it.

RICHARD, the purpose of the thermo is to shut the fan off at night when you dont want to get out of bed. I like having a built in timer instead, but few fans had them. thermostats were very common. your fan is rare to have the deluxe handle thermo and pushbuttons, plus a venturi around the blade... very nice

I have a Homart that once had a timer, but it is now missing. Or was it a thermo control that was there? Anyway, I don't have this fan yet. I plan to get it tonight.

GOOD LUCK WITH IT, IT LOOKS VERY NICE! HOMARTS HAD THERMOSTATS AND TIMERS IT DEPENDS ON THE TYPE AND YEAR.... MOST OF THE OLD STYLE BELT DRIVERS HAD A TIMER OR NOTHING, THE LATER BELT DRIVERS WITH SQUARE BACK HAD THERMOSTATS AND THE BOX STYLE FANS IT WAS MIXED EITHER WAY. WHAT STYLE FAN IS YOURS?

My friend got it. So I can still visit. It's in very good condition. We did not test the thremostatic control. I guess we could carry it in and out of the A/C and see if it come on and turns off?

P.S. Any idea mfg. date?
