Pedestal Or Tower Fan?
These days, it is actually possible to buy a fan for a very affordable price and the good news, some of it are 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. Therefore, investing in a little bit of quality tower fan or pedestal fan can get you out of that cycle and keep you cooler for longer period of time.
Fans do not chill like what air conditioner does but, they are still cooling you down through 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. Both pedestal and tower fans are friendly to the budget though, there are other models that are more expensive than normal.
Pedestal as well as tower fans have good points as well. You can get to choose exactly where and how to position them and many come with additional features today similar to remote controls, timers and variable speed settings. Aside from that, they’re handy when you wish to clear the air in room because of wet paint, smoke from a burnt dinner or damp carpet.
The question now is, when buying a fan you have to consider where you will use it most likely and what sort of airflow you prefer either indirect or direct?
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. In big living areas is where they function the most.
No matter if the new fan you are planning to buy is a pedestal or tower fan, there are some things that you should be mindful about. A few of these features include the noise, adjustable angle and height, fan modes, remote control, timer as well as display. All of these features are important to maximize the functionality of your new fan.
