Comment:
Used mostly in living room. 1st unit failed beginning of 2nd year. Dumb me bought 2nd one, it too failed in the 2nd year. We live in SC so usage was intermittent during the few cooler months. The company won't comment on life expectancy - probably because of the high failure rate which is noted on various blog posts.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
2 out of 3 failed so far and this happens after the expiration of the one-year warranty. The power cords get quite hot, too. I have one left and will only use it on low. I have since bought a Lasko 6050 and had it for over a year. It seems durable and has a 2-speed fan.
