  • Love my Next, this will be the first Summer with it, and the update is with the new fan controls will help with air circulation in the house. Great product, so worth the cost.

    Can someone convince my wife that this is actually an awesome product? She has a fear of this kind of tech for some reason and it drives me nuts! Maybe I should just buy one and install it when she isn’t home?

  • I think you just answered your own question! 🙂

  • Yeah everyone I talk to is happy with it. Looks great, works as advertised.
