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. With this in mind, investing in a bit of quality tower fan or pedestal fan can help you get out of this cycle while keeping you cooler for longer period of 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. Many of the fans can run 24/7 for the whole summer period and you can expect to pay more or less 30 dollars for the electricity that’s used. Both pedestal and tower fans are friendly to the budget but, there are some models that are more expensive than normal.
Tower fans as well as pedestal fans have good points too. You may choose exactly where and how to position them and many come with additional features today like remote controls, timers and variable speed settings. Moreover, if you wish to clear the air in the room as a result of wet paint, smoke from a burnt dinner or damp carpet, they can be very handy.
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?
Pedestal fans usually sit on a height adjustable stand and may be useful when you 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. As for column or tower fans, they have rectangular air outlet that typically sits closer to floor. Although, the upper section has the ability to blow air at reasonable height and some come with louvers to be able to direct airflow up or down. In big living areas is where they function the most.
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. All of these features are important to maximize the functionality of your new fan.
