We will be taking a look at a few fans today but before we get into the thick of things, it is worth mentioning that one of the fans on this list stands out to us a little bit more than all of the rest.
While all of the fans featured in this guide are really excellent at what they do the Lasko Wind Curve Fan offers a combination of features and value that are difficult to beat.
Of course, that is just our opinion. You can decide what fan you like best for yourself when we dive into the guide!
What’s Out There: The Best Floor Fan
You will probably recall the Lasko. Earlier we selected as our choice for the top option on this list and now you have the opportunity to find out why.
This unit features three separate power options that are optimized to provide you with a setting for every season of the year. The benefit of setting options are of course fairly obvious: the more settings that a fan has, the more use you are going to get out of it.
This unit also features a fresh air ionizer that is designed to circulate a feeling of outdoor air all throughout the room.
This feature is great for removing stale air and giving your house a nice fresh feeling that rivals that of the outdoors.
Last but not least, this fan is also designed to be very compact. The small, lightweight design is great for people who want a space-saving fan that they can move from room to room, or even take on the road with them.
This floor fan packs quite a powerful punch, circulating air in a large circle to cool off bigger rooms. This unit, in particular, is special for a variety of features that we will now explore.
Price fluctuates far too often to list a specific rate that you can expect to pick this fan up for, but I do think that it is fair to say that this is one of the most affordable units on this list by a pretty significant margin.
If you want to pick up a great fan for a great price this is definitely an option that you should consider.
The remote control feature on this unit makes operating it insanely convenient. With this feature, you now have complete control over the fan with the simple push of a button. Truly, it doesn’t get easier than that.
There is also a timer component featured on this machine that allows you to set a specific amount of time you want it to run for. Which means it can start or turn off when you’re sleeping or even before you get home.
This is an especially great feature for the person that likes to fall asleep to the sound of a fan but doesn’t want to have it run all evening or for those who want to cool off a space before they get home from work.The Lasko Wind Machine fan is made by the same manufacturer as our choice for the number one pick on this list but features a different design that makes it more versatile but also a bit more expensive. Let’s have a look.
This and all Lasko fans features what the manufacturers refer to as “the blue plug.” The blue plug is a feature that automatically kills power to the fan in the event that the machine detects unsafe electrical conditions.
It’s a simple but nice feature that is designed to keep you and your family safe.
By virtue of this fan’s design, it is probably the most portable and compact unit that is featured on this list. When talking about the first Lasko fan, I mentioned how easy it will be to travel with. While this is certainly true, it is probably even truer of the Wind Machine Fan.
Last but not least, this unit also benefits from plenty of versatility. The head features a pivoting component that will allow you to adjust the direction at which air is being circulated, and the fan also benefits from three-speed settings to ensure that you are comfortable at all times.
In addition, the fan can stay on the floor or be mounted on a wall if you want a higher breeze that you can feel on your face. This allows you to put it in any space without it getting in the way.
