    Hi Cll,

    No I don't have one but I wrote an email to find out what they cost. They look pretty cool.

    I also looked at the heatwave sterling engine fan website and WHAT IS GOING ON? About 6 months ago these fans came up on the forum too. I checked the prices then ($149 incuding shipping) seemed fair so I started saving up. Then I checked again 3 months ago $179 plus shipping. And today I checked again and now it is $199 plus shipping. price increased 33% in 6 months! Who are they kidding? Just because they got a VESTA price they think they can get away with higher prices?

    What do you guys think?

    PS. I like the free breeze better because it has a screen protecting the fan blade.

    Hi cll,

    I got a response. The price is $225 plus $25 in shipping. Seems high.

    It's a neat device, but for $250 I could run a 20 watt electric fan 24 hours a day for 8.3 years.

    Hi warmguy,

    Thanks for the reply. You are correct. I looked at my vornado fan and it uses 112 W/hr. I never run it full blast, so I wonder how much I really use. At that price, it is more of a gimmick than a real saver.

    I saw the heat wave fan that was 150 including shipping. That seemed worth it. Now I am off the market.

    For $250 you would be better off getting a couple cords of wood would produce more energy
