Pedestal Or Tower Fan?

In this modern world, it is possible to buy a fan without hurting your budget and the good news, some are actually of great value for money. On the other hand, you have to know as well that some of the cheap models may be a bit limp with regards to actually moving the air around and may not last a long time. As for this, investing in a bit of quality tower fan or pedestal fan can certainly help you to get out of this cycle and keep you cooler for longer time.

Yes it is true that fans can’t chill like what air conditioner does but still, they are able to cool you down via evaporating perspiration at a small fraction of running cost. A big number of fans can operate 24/7 even for the whole summer period and expect to pay more or less 30 dollars for the electricity that’s used. It is true that both pedestal and tower fans are friendly to the budget but there are some that are priced higher than average.

Pedestal as well as tower fans have good points as well. You have the chance to choose exactly where and how to position them and many come with additional features nowadays such as remote controls, timers and variable speed settings. Apart from that, they are handy when you like to clear the air in room due to wet paint, smoke from a burnt dinner or damp carpet.

Where you will use it most likely and what sort of airflow you prefer either indirect or direct is the question you have to answer when buying a new fan.

In most instances, pedestal fins are sitting on a height adjustable stand and can be pretty useful if you would like to direct air at a height above the ground or a particular spot in the room like across the bed’s surface, angled up toward the ceiling for indirect breeze or to blow directly on your face. Column or tower fans however have rectangular air outlet that typically sits closer to floor. Although their upper section can blow air at reasonable height and some have louvers to be able to direct airflow up or down. They are most suitable to a big living area.

There are some things that you have to take into consideration when buying a new fan regardless if it is a pedestal or tower fan. A few of these features include the noise, adjustable angle and height, fan modes, remote control, timer as well as display. If you want to maximize the functionality of your new fan, then these features will be important to have.
