Constant use of fans during sleep/ sleep issues

Patient : My son is 17. I strongly believe he has sleep apnea. He has to sleep every night with a window open in his room with a fan in it and another large fan on the floor. I think with 2 fans going that he is not breathing well through the night. In the winter the windows are closed but he still has the 2 fans going at night. I am concerned about his health . Am I on the right track witht he sleep apnea. Also he is very overweight he weighs close to 300 lbs.
Symptoms:  N/A
