Lasko 2264QM

A Bit More Flexibility

Though the people behind the Lasko 2264QM advertise it as a floor fan, the model is actually a bit more versatile than they seemingly give it credit for. Coming with a Quick-mount™ system and all of the necessary hardware, including the mounting bracket, this fan can be installed on a wall just as well.

That said, it isn't the most defining characteristic of this model as the latter title would have to go to the size of the blades and the fan itself. With 25"W x 16"D x 22"H and blades that are 20" in diameter, the fan will definitely prove to be a bit too much for household application. It isn't just the power that will be an overkill but also the amount of noise it produces that simply won't fit any individual garage or a house. No, the Lasko high velocity fan is a product for commercial areas, and the manufacturers made sure to incorporate everything required to serve the aforementioned purpose. For instance, the durable tubular steel construction that will be able to deliver years of faithful service regardless of the environment. The previously specified blades are made of metal too, delivering performance that could rival the fan's durability.

Other than that, there isn't much here that you won't find in your typical model, like rubber pads on the base to protect the surface, a pivoting construction, or a carry handle. To sum it all up, the Lasko high velocity fan in question offers a bit more flexibility than the majority of industrial grade models, so we would certainly suggest looking into this particular fan if durable construction and solid performance aren't enough for you.

Stanley 655704

Put It Anywhere

All things considered, the Stanley 655704 might just very well be one of the most versatile options on the market. First off, the model is extremely quiet, and, depending on your perception, as well as the people surrounding you, you could even fall asleep with this fan running on medium or high speed. Plenty of people acquire this product for their classrooms as well since the medium speed doesn't generate enough noise to distract them from studying and the high speed produces what essentially amounts to white noise, so some students even find it helpful as it helps them concentrate.

This sort of quiet operation probably has something to do with the overall size of this high-velocity floor fan that features 12.19"W x 8.7"D x 12.25"H. Add the 7-inch plastic blades into the equation and you might think that the model probably lacks in power. Surprisingly enough, that isn't necessarily the case here as this unit delivers 350 cubic feet per minute on medium speed, which is more than enough power to cool down a fairly sizable area.

Though the overall dimensions and the power that it offers are probably enough to justify calling this fan one of the more versatile models, the manufacturers decided to take it up a notch by implementing a couple of additional 120-volt grounded outlets into their product that you can use with all kinds of accessories. Of course, the whole thing comes fully assembled and ready for work. And that's about all there is to it. What we have here is a high-velocity floor fan that relies on exceptional versatility to attract all kinds of different customers. Workspaces, attics, basements, or garages, this model will be a great fit for just about any tight space where fresh air isn't an always present necessity.

Honeywell HT-908

A Table Will Do Too

The Honeywell HT-908 isn't what we would describe as an outdoor model nor will it be a good fit for large commercial areas or industrial application. That said, it wouldn't be particularly smart to hold it against this fan as it clearly was designed with dissimilar intentions in mind. With a 15-inch frame and 10-inch blades, the model will be a perfect fit for small and medium-sized rooms. And, with the help of a rather convenient stand that features non-skid pads, you will be able to place this compact machine not just on the floor but on top of just about any surface out there as the size certainly allows it.

The standard 3 speed settings that most of these fans come equipped with will be able to deliver air movement up to 32 feet, a fairly respectable number for household purposes. When set to the third, highest speed, the model produces 367 CFM, which is, again, not bad as far as non-industrial models are concerned. Of course, it is very important for this kind of fans to be a lot quieter than their more sizable counterparts, so the manufacturers made sure their product doesn't produce more than 72 dB of noise. Another thing worth mentioning before we wrap this whole thing up is the removable grille that really simplifies the cleaning process, making this fan a particularly low-maintenance model.

In conclusion, we would recommend the Honeywell HT-908 to people that do not feel particularly comfortable in the kitchen or any other room in their house that isn't too large but do not feel like investing in an additional AC unit to cool the particular area down to a more convenient temperature.

Patton PUF1810C-BM

Control the Air

The Patton PUF1810C-BM is a product for real handymen, for those people that don't mind getting their hands dirty as they do repair or maintenance work. You put this thing in a workshop or an industrial-sized garage/basement and you won't ever have to worry about having enough fresh, cool air in that area. Everything about this model suggests that the people behind it knew what they were doing both in terms of construction and functionality.

As far as the former goes, the model features a durable front and rear grill, both of which are made of metal. Add to that the powder coated finish and what you're left with is a high velocity industrial fan that will be able to handle the rough and tumble of your average workshop. Of course, the blades are comprised of metal as well, with no less than 18 inches in diameter in order to move the air in the most effective manner. Though the model comes equipped with 3 speed settings, even the lowest one offers enough power to ventilate a pretty substantial area.

Now, as for the functionality, it isn't just the speed settings that we just mentioned but also the adjustable-tilt head that will allow the user to maximize air intake, air exhaust, and air circulation. As you would imagine, with the help of the latter, you will be able to direct airflow with solid precision. All in all, we would like to reiterate our earlier point by saying that the Patton PUF1810C-BM is probably the best high velocity fan for people that don't mind getting their hands dirty as they do repair or maintenance work. Plus, the affordable price tag that the fan comes with makes it a fairly easy choice.

Lasko 3300

Keep It Cool

The Lasko 3300 is a powerhouse of a model for people that either do not want to invest in an air conditioner or have the sort of unit that simply does not suffice when it comes to keeping every area of the house cool enough in the summer. Though Lasko produces a fairly ridiculous variety of different fans, this is probably one of the better models from the said company when it comes to household application. The easy-grip carry handle is convenient enough to make the process of transportation from one room to the other as effortless as possible. And, since this is a Lasko product we're talking about, it should go without saying that the fan features the Blue Plug™ safety fuse technology. As some of you may know, this technology cuts off electric current to the fan the moment the said fuse detects any potential hazardous fault.

While this fan isn't necessarily what you would describe as an industrial model, the design and the construction are rugged enough to be able to withstand a variety of potentially harmful scenarios. But the most alluring part of this model is probably its energy efficient operation as it will you cost about 6 cents a day on a low setting. Finally, both the pivoting head that will allow you to direct the airflow and the non-skid pads that ensure safe placement on just about any surface are also there. Again, the Lasko 3300 isn't an industrial fan. But it is a powerful model that you might want to consider if you do not wish to invest in an air conditioner or if the unit that you have doesn't deliver when it comes to keeping your living area cool throughout the summer.

What Is a High Velocity Fan?

Summer is arguably the most polarizing season there is. There is plenty to love about it but you don't want to find yourself in a situation where it is 90 degrees both inside and outside and you're sweating like a marathon runner that is about to reach the finish line. Of course, most people solve that problem by investing in an air conditioner. But those tend to cost a pretty penny, you can't install them on your own unless you're a DIY savant and you will need to call a specialist every time it malfunctions. On the other hand, you could simply buy a high-velocity blower fan. They use far less energy than ACs and the blades rotate quickly enough to cool down a large room or even an entire house, depending on the model you opt for. These fans are also great for all kinds of commercial and industrial areas. Their performance usually depends on the size and the quality of the blades. Some of them can be mounted on a wall but the majority can and should be put on a floor. Most include a switch that you can use to change the rotation speed in order to accommodate the temperature and the size of the room. Naturally, you will also have to take into account the size of the fan in relation to the size of the whole place and where you intend to place it.

And if you don't mind the heat and it is actually cold that you're more worried about, you could always get yourself a personal heater and a bathroom heater.
