For most people summer is their favorite season. Tee shirts, shorts, dresses, sandals… Warm sunshine puts a smile on everyone’s face.

Air conditioning is great but the cost is prohibitive for the average family so whats a good alternative? A tower fan! The best tower fan will keep you cool when you are indoors watching TV or at night when you are in bed.
Whereas air conditioning units take up space and use a lot of energy, the best tower fans are slimline and free standing (hence the “tower”) and use considerably less power.

Not only suitable for the home, tower fans are suitable for working environments such as offices, retail stores and just about any indoor space.
Tower fans are basically a pedestal fan but with a height adjustable “tower”. They produce a draft of cool air by spinning a fan blade which is covered with a safety grill to prevent accidents. The fan can be set to either fixed position to channel the airflow or oscillate to distribute the col air around the room.
Tower Fan Features
A basic tower fan will come with 2-3 speed settings and fixed or oscillating setting. The best tower fans have added extras such as remote control, air ionizer or purifier to remove dust and other airborne impurities, air freshener and even a sleep timer to turn off the fan at a set time. Other tower fans come with the benefit of a heating setting to warm the room when it gets chilly which is useful in many climates where it is warm in the day but cooler at night or fr different seasons. Modern technology moves fast and even tower fan technology advances rapidly. Some fans come with Bluetooth built in so they can be controlled via your phone.
