What We Liked
- Powerful yet Quiet
For its size, the Air King 9166 is a pretty powerful unit that’s capable of 3560 CFM. It features 3 different speeds depending on your requirements.
- Highly Durable
Equipped with a storm guard and with powder coated steel blades and front grill the Air King 9166 will withstand all the elements.
- Energy Efficient
Because this exhaust window fan is powerful enough to deal with the whole house, it will negate the need to use air conditioning, which can be far more costly.
The 9166 has been designed to fit windows from 27 to 38” in width, making it one of the most versatile models on the market in terms of installation.
What We Didn't Like
- Noise Levels
There are 3 speeds, and on its highest setting it can be considered noisy. However due to the power of the fan itself, the higher settings are normally not required at “quiet” times of day.
Although constructed largely of metal, the housing can be considered a little flimsy and not strong enough to cope with the overall power of the fan.
There are mixed reviews on the Air King 9166 and it has to be said it rates just above average on many online retail websites. It is however incredibly efficient at moving large amounts of air within the home and will keep you cool. For the most part it is incredibly durable as well. If you’re looking for a unit that will move a lot of air without all the bells and whistles, this fan is a decent buy.Review by AirReflect ©
