If you have not already tried it, the standard method
for sleeping with the Hum is to mask the noise with
an ordinary electric fan. I have a $10 20-inch box fan that
I bought 2 years ago that works great. I fastened a
high-efficiency furnace filter to the back of it with duct
tape, and now I have an inexpensive air filter.
Norman, OklahomaThat's similar to what I did !I used a small air-cleaner fan, whose sound just happened to be a pleasant 'hiss', and which partially masks low hums. The standard filter soon 'ran out', and I wasn't going to keep paying out for more, so I use close-weave material as a filter.One has to be resourceful with this! I also strung the fan up from a hook in the ceiling, so its own slight hum did not transmit through a bedside table/cabinet into the bed.R.M. Southampton, England.
