My daily runners:

Emmy 71666 in the den.
Emmy Jubilee in the kitchen.
R&M 10" double diamond and Westy Vader 16" in the living room.
14" Freshy, Hunter Type 12 and Westy Lively Aire on nightly duty in bedrooms.

We keep our thermostat on 75-76 during the summers and run the heck out of these fans.

Seems like this would be a good idea for a "group buy"...  I'd buy 5 or 6!
