Window fans do not hang outside of windows...you dont even have to put up the screen to put a window fan in. They're not permanent (not screwed into the frame). You're good. Tell the LL to suck an egg.

Are you actually able to control the heat in your unit?

I have no direct control over the heat in my apartment, and in the winters it can get blazingly hot, and I can't sleep. Even just opening the window isn't enough, I have to have a fan in there actively pulling the cool air in.

Yeah if I had a thermostat where I could control the temperature, I'd be stupid for running a fan in the middle of winter, but that's not the case.

Is the window you use on a fire escape? If it is then you would not be permitted to have it there as you can't block the window on a fire escape.

I have never heard of this in my life. I have a regular size window in my bathroom, I have the top opened with a big fan it. My fan stays in 24-7-365. No matter what the temperature. I have it on a shelf so i can close the window in the event of sever rain or sever cold wind.
I have it here so the bathroom stays ventilated, and for after a shower i turn it on. It sucks the smelly, steamy air out and thats why I have it in the window.


I also get why you have it since you smoke.That is a good idea.

I would tell the LL to take a hike. It is doing no harm and it is your apt, too bad.

This is unheard of. many apts have fans because many apts are just to darn hot.


keep it in your window and tell the LL to f off

Well put the fan right next to the window, whether it be on the floor or on a stand. Problem solved.
