What will a ThruWall fan do for me?

In other applications:
-Move heated or cooled air from one room to another if there is a great difference in temperatures between the two rooms. i.e. one room is nice and warm in the winter. The room next to it, located over an unheated space is always cold. Simply blow air from the warm to the cold room.
