    but I get the impression that the draw of the fan - power wise that is - is pretty modest.  I've also become an artist at making the best use of it.  My theory is that you want to draw as much as possible of the air the fan pulls through from the farthest point of the house - the more house that cool air passes through, the more it cools things down.  So I open the windows at the far end of the house wide and the ones closer in only a crack to get a little air through those areas.  And it happens that our bedroom is at the farthest point from the fan so we get the maximal benefit from cooling while we sleep.  Not sure this is valid, but my experience is that it seems to work better.
