The Unique bFan Bed Fan – No More Broken Sleep from Night Sweats!
The unique bFan bed fan is a silent rotary fan that sits on the floor at the end of your bed and gently blows cool air into your bed under the duvet to prevent you from getting hot and sweaty whilst trying to sleep. The cool air from the bed fan flows up your body removing the trapped heat from around your body, under your duvet and sheets before expelling it into the room. This prevention of sweat provides a welcome and unique relief and benefits many types of people such as those suffering with:
- Medical conditions – Hot flushes, menopausal women, idiopathic hyperhidrosis.
- Viral and bacterial infections – Including fever, influenza, osteomyelitis, endocarditis & HIV.
- Cancer – Especially lymphoma or those in recovery.
- Diabetes – hyperglycema or low blood sugar.
- Hormone disorders
- Medications and drugs – Many can cause night sweating.
- Neurological conditions – Stroke, autonomic dysreflexia, posttraumatic syringomyelia.
- Overweight – Obesity causes overheating due to the insulating effect of fat in the skin.
- High metabolic rate – Since they produce a lot of energy that doesn’t get dissipated whilst in bed.
- Living in hot climates or summer heatwaves – Not wanting to waste energy with costly air-conditioning running all night.

The bFan Bed Fan Unique Features
The bFan bed fan is not just any old blower fan. It is a unique precision engineered bed blower type fan combined with specially designed ducting and years of practical expertise built in to it. Consider the unique features that set it apart:
- Ultra-Quiet Motor – The motor is developed to give an amazing 25 db (the same as rustling leaves) on low speed. In the quiet of night this is essential. To achieve this the blower is designed to be run at 20% of the full power setting so that is it not straining which also helps ensure a long life.
- Strong Blower – Sufficiently powerful to deliver both a high flow and at a sufficient pressure to push the required air all the way up though the sheets and out into the bedroom.
- DC Low Energy Design – Very efficient motor which saves energy and gives great variability of speed without generating any waste heat.
- Precision 100% Variable Remote Control – So that the perfect heat setting for you can be achieved whilst in bed.
- Reversible Base – To fit any bed and mattress. If space is available it can be neatly placed under the bed.
- Wide smooth flow outlet – To minimise airflow noise and avoid any uncomfortable strong turbulent blowing on the feet.
- Flow only affects one side of bed – So your partner can continue to sleep unaffected.
- Adjustable height – With tall and short versions to be able to fit all mattresses and beds.
- Durable Construction – Strong plastic that doesn’t discolour or break easily.
- Wired remote – So cannot be lost, misplaced or need battery changes.
- Easy Assembly – Can be put together in 5 mins.
- Patent-pending design – Unique design based on 15 years of practical experience and feedback from thousands of customers.
- Safe – Designed with extra safety protection to prevent fire or electrical danger. All components have been independently tested in UL underwriters labs.
- Money saving – Allows the air-conditioning to be set higher over night.
- USA Manufactured – Quality engineered and produced.
- 10 Year Warranty – On the motor giving you peace of mind.
Air-Conditioning is Not The Solution – Why You Need the bFan Bed Fan!
These conditions and many other things can cause your body to overheat at night when under the duvet or bed clothes. Duvets are understandably designed to keep you warm and trap the heat around your body causing your temperature to rise leading to the bodies’ natural response of sweating. This sweat then soaks in to your pyjamas and sheets before you eventually get too hot and throw off the bed sheets. Then the cool air in the room turns the sweat cold and it becomes clammy. The sweat will evaporate making you feel cold (a lot of heat is removed when water evaporates). If the air-conditioning is on this can make you very cold indeed causing you to wake up and so instead of helping it actually makes matters worse. You then go back under the sheets again to get warm so you can go back to sleep only to quickly overheat again and so the cycle repeats. AC can help but you need to use it without the sweating in conjunction with the bFan bed fan for the perfect night’s sleep.
This cycle means it is almost impossible to get the correct regulated temperature depriving you of a decent night’s sleep. Temperature is considered by experts to be one, if not the most important factor to having a great night’s rest especially keeping you within the deep sleep stages 3 & 4 instead of being the light REM sleep stages 1 & 2.
A typical body generates 1/2 – 3/4 kw of heat. Heat is like a material, it has quantity to it or “enthalpy” in thermodynamics terms. Unless it is removed it will just sit and keep building up as more and more is added from your body. This makes everything around it hot and also makes it impossible for your body to cool by further sweating. Your body internal temperature will then begin to rise again leading you to wake up. A small amount of heat will leak away through the sheets but most will remain until it is flushed out by the air flow from the bFan bed fan.
How the bFan Bed Fan Works
The solution therefore is the removal of this trapped heat and humidity from under your bed sheets so that your skin feels cool and fresh, and your body feels comfortable and relaxed. This is what the bFan does with simplicity and elegance. The bFan bed fan has a remote speed control so that you can adjust the airflow to give you the perfect body temperature. Now the open window or, if very hot then air-conditioning, is just needed to remove the expelled heat and moisture from the room rather than cool down an overheated body and so the setting can be much higher saving energy.
What Makes The bFan Bed Fan Better?
The most significant difference between the remotely controlled, patent-pending bFan® and competing fans is how the bFan® moves the air. The bFan® uses a modified duel-wheel squirrel cage blower fan similar to what you would find in a luxury car for its air conditioning system. These types of DC blowers alone have an average retail cost of well over £150.00 and is extraordinarily quiet producing just 25 db on low speed and 35db on high speed. To give you an idea 25 db is the sound level of rustling leaves whereas 35 db is the sound level in a library. In the still night sound is amplified and so quietness is of crucial importance. This exceptional quietness is achieved by running the motor at 20% of the maximum power so it is just above tick-over running at low speed nicely with no strain.
The airflow output is not only high but most important of all it produces a sufficiently high static pressure to push the required volume of air through the bed quietly. This fan will last many years under our operating conditions and hence we provide a 10 year warranty on it. Competing knock-off products use a basic muffin type of fan like domestic extractor fans which are much louder, have a lower airflow and lower static pressure making them not suitable for this purpose.
The New Improved bFan Bed Fan
The original bed fan was invented in 2003 to become available to the market. It was highly successful and well received. It has been in many magazines, newspapers, television shows etc. The response in the USA where it was marketed has been awesome. From this experience Thompkins Research were able to reengineer it to make the new mark II perfect bed fan, named the bFan. Over the last 15 years they talked with many of their customers and listened to their ideas on what they would like to see in the next version of the bed fan. Many of these have been implemented into this new version which has taken $500k and 4 years to develop. These are the key things that they have improved are:
- Increased the stability with a balanced footing and lower centre of gravity
- Increased the overall air flow
- Increased the fans total static pressure
- Made the fan much quieter and much stronger
In the following video the inventor Kurt Thompkins is interviewed about how he came up with the idea and developed it into a great product.

The bFan Bed Fan and the Henley Fan Company
The bFan bed fan was launched in the USA in early 2018 and is the latest version of the bed fan to come from the Texas inventor Kurt Tompkins who invented the first bed fan 15 years ago and has been selling them ever since. He has been featured on many US TV shows and it is the leading brand in this field. This model is much quieter than its predecessor and has a more efficient DC motor as well as many other design improvements. The Henley Fan Company Ltd is proud to be the exclusive distributor for Tompkins Research Inc. in the EC, Middle East, Africa and Asia covering the 240v World.

What Size of bFan Bed Fan Do I need?
The bFan bed fan is adjustable and comes in two sizes to cover the vast majority of bed heights.
