Tower Fan Buyer’s Guide
If you are in the market for a tower fan, then you need to know what questions to ask before buying one. A quality tower fan can last for years and save you energy costs on your electric bill.
If you don’t want to guess which one is right for your needs, this article will help guide you through the process of choosing a high-quality tower fan that fits your needs and budget.
How loud is the tower fan?
If you are looking for a quiet fan, then it may be worth spending more money on a quieter model.
Keep an eye out for quiet specifications with the model you choose. These are generally quieter than other non-specialised tower fans.
How large is the area that needs air cooling?
The larger the space you need cooled the more powerful fans are required. A small room does not require as much power while an open warehouse or garage would require a ton of power in order for it to be effective.
Additionally, if there are walls around where you intend on putting this device, keep in mind that these can block airflow and reduce its effectiveness significantly.
Do you have allergy concerns at home?
Some people may benefit from using tower fans with activated carbon filters inside them which trap allergens before they enter your nose and mouth.
These are usually available as an optional extra to purchase, so bear this in mind when choosing your fan.
Do you want the tower fan to oscillate?
Some people like their fans to stay in one place and others prefer them to move from side-to-side.
If you like your fan’s movement, make sure that this is an option with the model that you buy.
What is the tower fan made of?
Look at photos online or read reviews about the quality of different models before buying yours. You’ll also probably find some things written about how easy they might be to clean as well – which can come in handy when it comes to removing dust and allergens.
Do you want a remote control with your tower fan?
Please note that not all models come with this feature, however in some cases it can be purchased separately too, so keep an eye out for these features before deciding on your purchase.
Can you change the angle and height?
Some fans have the ability to change their angle and height so that they can be more effective in different spaces. This is usually an optional extra, but it might make sense for you if you know your fan won’t always be in the same place or at exactly the right height.
It’s also worth noting whether this feature requires tools (such as a screwdriver) or not – because although some tower fans are very quick to assemble, other models may require time which isn’t ideal when you’re trying to cool down quickly!
Does the tower fan have a variety of modes?
Some tower fans have a variety of modes, such as sleep and natural wind.
The latter is usually designed to mimic outdoor airflow – particularly useful if you like the idea of your fan but cannot put it outside for any reason!
Sleep mode can help make sleeping with a fan more comfortable by making sure that all sounds are softer and gentler than normal.
Do you need extra features?
You may find some additional features which might be worth considering when choosing between two or three different models (such as an ionizer).
These extras aren’t always necessary, so weigh up whether they’re important to you before deciding on what model will best suit your needs.
