Benefits Of A Tower Fan
Before we talk about what to look for when searching for your next tower fan, it might be a good idea to go over some of the benefits of owning one of these fans over floor, window, or box fans. Below are some of the reasons why more and more people are buying high-quality tower fans.

What To Consider Before Buying A Tower Fan
Okay, now it’s time to get down to business and find out some of the features that the best tower fans all have in common. So without further ado, below are what consumers should look for when they choose their next tower fan for their apartment or house.
How Easy Is It To Setup?
One of the first considerations that most people are going to want to keep in mind is how easy the tower fan is to assemble. Each of these fans is different from one another and some of them require more assembly than others, so most consumers are probably going to want to buy one that’s mostly assembled and only requires a few minutes of assembly time.
Fan Speeds & Fan Modes
Another thing to keep in mind is the number of speeds the fan has. At the very least, one of these fans should have 3-fans speeds: low, medium and high. Anything less than that is probably unacceptable. There are many models have more than 3+ speeds and there are some advanced models that have up to 8-speeds. Another thing to consider is the fan’s modes. Although there is no selection of fan modes that are perfect for everyone, all consumers should consider what some of the modes they need their fan to have. Some modes often found on tower fans include sleep modes, natural modes, high-power modes, and light modes.
The consumer should also consider whether they need their fan to oscillate, and if they do, how much do they need it to oscillate. Some tower fans provide absolutely no oscillation, while others can offer up to 90-degree oscillation. How much oscillation, and whether the oscillation is automatically or manually controlled will largely depend on the preferences of the consumer.
For most people, choosing a tower fan that doesn’t make a lot of noise is their top priority. Therefore, these people should look for a fan that either specifically states that it’s a low-decibel fan or one that’s equipped with a sleep mode. Sleep modes allow the fan to deliver cool air to the room, but do it without all of the noise typically associated with a fan.
Tower Fan Size
The size of the tower fan is another important consideration for any consumer to make because these fans come in a wide assortment of different sizes. And we do mean a wide assortment. There are desktop versions of these fans that are under 6.9-inches, and there are full-size fans that are 29-inches or taller. Of course, the fan size that a person chooses is going to depend on their needs and where they intend to place the fan.
Remote Control Operation
Although remote control operation of a fan isn’t necessary for it to be considered a good fan, some people like to be able to turn their fan on or off or adjust it from the comfort of their couch. If the consumer needs a remote, then there are plenty of models available that have that feature—all they have to do is look.
It’s quite clear that these fans are great for anyone to use. They can be conveniently located in the corner of a room, so they can be used in offices, dorms, small living rooms, and other living spaces without taking up a whole lot of room. And they also make great housewarming gifts, gifts for new homeowners, and gifts for the holiday season.
