Tower fans are a popular choice today as they have a thin and vertical design which allows them to circulate bigger amount of air while using a smaller amount of floor space. As these fans are bladeless, it is safe to use these fans around children. Also most tower fans come up with extra settings like oscillation, self timer and remote controls. And most importantly, they are a lot QUIETER than an electric fan. Today we will have some reviews on the best cooling tower fans for home that are sold in the market.
#1: Dyson AM07 Air Multiplier Tower Fan
By both professional testing and individual reviews the first place is secured by Dyson AM07 Tower Fan. This fan is the newest member of Dyson’s high end air multiplier family. This fan contains a motor in its base and directs the air flow out through an aperture, oval in shape. Dyson claims that this new member uses 10 percent less energy and is 60 percent quieter than the older ones. While a regular electric fan sounds 75 dBA on the high, Dyson only reaches 64 dBA. One of the reasons for being quieter must be the absence of any blades in it. Unlike the majority in the market, this model has 10 speed settings and a 9 hour of sleep timer. But all these come with a price! Dyson’s AM07 is priced $350, making it impossible for many to buy it and discouraging many others. Although, if you buy it you won’t regret it. Some say that this model produces lesser amount of air. For example, Seamus Bellamy stated that this fan produces 431 cubic feet of air per minute while some other models with a lot less price may even produce 450 cubic feet of air per minute. But you can’t expect to have everything in a product, can you? This one is light in weight, uses less amount of energy, gives you more features than any other models in the market, makes it easy to clean and it is perfectly safe if you have kids or pets at home. I think all these can compensate for the 19 CFM.
#2: In comes number 2, the Lasko 2551 42// Wind Curve Fresh Air Ionizer.
This thing has a good user review both on Amazon and Walmart. This fan also delivers a good amount of air with less noise. It also consumes less energy. But these are not the features that make it the number 2 position. The best feature of this model is the Air Ionizer. This feature cleans the dusts in the air and gives you a fresh and hygienic air to breathe in. This tower fan also has the oscillation feature, remote control and a built in carrying handle. Of course there are some bad reviews regarding this product as well. People find its body to be too slippery which makes it tough to get a grip on the handle. Some also say that their remote controls don’t work at times even if it has a clear line of sight. Complaints have also arisen from various owners that their fan broke down within months of buying. So be very careful before buying anything and check for yourself. Do not listen to anyone else; rather make your own decision.
#3: At number 3 we have Holmes. This is also a good tower fan giving all the facilities as the other brands. So what makes it so special? Its dual oscillating feature. While other fans can oscillate 90 degrees on one side and back, this fan can oscillate 90 degrees on both sides. You can change the oscillation direction by just a click on the remote. It relieves you the hassle to manually move the fan’s direction when you change place. Amazing, isn’t it?
Though we have discussed here about three different brands, Dyson is surely the best tower fan to have.
