Summer is around the corner, and very few things are as refreshing as a stable supply of cool breeze air on a hot day. That's why a fan is essential to have in your home during the summer months. But with so many different types and styles of fans on the market, how do you choose the right one for your needs? Here are a few examples of the main types of fans and why each one might be a good fit for you.
Portable handheld fans
Handheld fans are a great option if you want something small and portable that you can take while on the go., and, if you or anyone in your family suffers from breathlessness, a handheld fan can be a lifesaver. Our 4" Personal Rechargeable Wand Fan comes in a variety of colors to suit everyone’s style preferences!
Desktop fans, such as our 10" Square Turbo Desk Fan, is a good option if you need something to cool down a specific area, like your desk at work or your bedside table. Desktop fans typically have more power than handheld fans and there are many models that can be set up to oscillate, such as this 5” 2-Speed Oscillating Desk Fan so that the breeze reaches more of the room.
They're also a great choice for people who want to save energy or for those who want to improve the effectiveness of a diffuser.
Tower fans can help cool down a larger space, like a living room or kitchen. Plus, they're tall and slim so they don't take up much floor space and can be tucked away in a corner. Some, like our 31” Oscillating Tower Fan, even come with remote controls so that you can adjust the settings without getting up.
Window box fans
Window box fans are a good choice if you want to cool down your entire home without using an air conditioner or impeding other devices, such as our 9” Reversible Twin Window Box Fan. Window box fans fit easily into most windows and can be set up to blow air in or out, depending on what you need.
Industrial fans are the perfect choice for those working on DIY projects, on professional sites or in other similar type situations. They're typically very powerful and can move a lot of air, which makes them perfect for use in factories, warehouses or other industrial settings. The 24” High-Velocity Industrial Fan comes with two speeds to keep up with even the toughest of cooling jobs.
