    I had one when I stayed in USJ. Not sure if it really works but frankly I did not feel a difference. Perhaps, my expectations were too high or I needed more than 1.

    Cannot recommend any brand since I have forgotten.

    Waste of money.
    Company had 6 install in a warehouse but no difference if there is no strong wind blowing.
    Best if you check out better roof insulation as the solution.

    I have one installed in my old house, it does help to cool down the house abit... but it also can be quite dusty. They will cut hole in your ceiling board and replace it with air vent.. dust can come in from there.

    ksin,
    if your top flr is hot, u might want to consider heat insulation/reflect. its a layer of reflective material installed in the roof. it will greatly reduce the heat for top flr.

    installed roof turbine ventilator, didn't see any dust come in.

    but with addition, i have the wall fan to blow out to the windows as to suck out the hot air in the room and blow to outside.

    due to it's really hot sunny day , it's time to clean and wash, bedsheet, curtain and hang in the room, it will dry up soon and doesn't need more attention as to rainny day.
