What to Look for in a Tower Fan
The three models selected for review here are three of the most popular models sold on Amazon. They provide all the must-haves listed above, and depending on the model, some of the nice-to-haves as well. You will find below a comparison of the three selected models followed by detailed descriptions and recommendations.
Comparing the Three Selected Tower Fans
Honeywell Comfort HYF013W , Lasko Wind Curve 2554/2551, and Ozeri 42 Ultra
Notes 1 to 5 from Table Explained:
Note 2: The ionizer function helps the air stay clean and fresh throughout the room.
Note 3: The Honeywell fan has a 2-hour auto shutoff timer. The Lasko auto shutoff timer can be programmed up to 7.5 hours in 30 minute increments. The Ozeri auto shutoff timer can be programmed up to 12 hours in 1 hour increments.
Note 4: The operation of all three tower fans is surprisingly quiet given the amount of power they deliver, and all three fans are almost completely silent at lower speeds. At top speeds, the Honeywell and Lasko fans are quieter than the Ozeri. But when the ionizer function is turned on, the Lasko makes a faint buzz.
Note 5: The Ozeri Ultra comes with a removable extension column that extends the fan's height to 42 inches.
You will find below a detailed description of the selected tower fans:
HONEYWELL Comfort HYF013W Tower Fan
The fan features the following:
- Three 3 speed levels.
- Oscillation for wide area cooling.
- Two-hour auto-off timer.
- Carrying handle.
- Easy controls.
It is ideal for medium to large size rooms and is capable of reaching wide and far areas within your home.
The auto-off timer frees you from the burden of turning the fan off and saves energy.
Regarding noise, the fan is quite y silent in the lower speed settings which still have enough power to cool you off if the unit is not placed too far from where you are.
The fan comes with a 1 year limited manufacturer's warranty.
LASKO Wind Curve 2554 & 2551
They utilize minimal space while providing maximum air distribution. They come with 3 quiet speeds and a timer function that can shut off the unit after a programmable interval of time of 0.5 to 7.5 hours (in 30 minute increments).
These units are capable of 90 degrees oscillation for better air distribution, and are equipped with an ionizer which can help the air stay clean and fresh throughout the entire room. They also come with a remote control equipped with buttons for all the unit's functions. When not in use, the remote control can be conveniently stored on the unit. Various operations such as selecting the cooling speeds, setting the shutoff time, turning on the ionizer, or selecting the oscillation mode can be done from the unit's built-in panel or using the remote control.
Note that these units are not quipped with a thermostat.
Because of the partial wood finish, the Lasko 2554 tower fan exudes a sense of class and sophistication that will enhance the decor of any room, but best of all it is is virtually silent.
These fans come with a 1 year limited manufacturer's warranty.
