All Best Features in One Appliance
Wherever you need to provide comfortable temperature during this hot summer, at home or at work, the Rowenta VU2660 quiet table fan will do the job perfectly. This modern fan boasts great performance and usability features to meet the needs of the most demanding users. The first thing we’d like to point out is that this appliance works within 70–150-Watt power range and has a large blade diameter of 21 inches. This very combination allows you to use it both as a table and floor fan. The second feature that caught our eye was the 5 speed settings including Turbo Boost and Silent Night. The former provides the maximum airflow to cool down a whole room while the latter will come to liking of those who prefer to sleep in complete silence. However, even if you choose the fastest speed setting, this Rowenta fan won’t disturb you since its noise level is only 35 dB.
Power of Innovations
Are you looking for a compact table fan that would provide impressive cooling results? Then, this Vornado model is just what you need. This mid-sized fan measures 8.2” x 12” x 13.6” and is equipped with three large blades that make up 12 inches in diameter. This very size is a happy medium for those who want a fan for both table and floor use that will handle personal area and whole-room cooling. And thanks to the innovative multidirectional airflow technology, the Vornado fan can freshen up to 70 feet of space. The secret of this Vornado technology is the well-thought-out design of its AirTensity spiral grill that creates a spiral effect providing whole-room air circulation. Thus, to enjoy a comfortable temperature in your room or office, you only need to place the fan wherever you want and choose one of the three speed settings. Moreover, the fan is equipped with a tilting head so you can direct the strongest airflow wherever you need.
If you ask us what the best USB fan for personal use is, we’d say, it’s the OPOLAR model right here. You might not notice anything special about it at first since just like the majority of good fans, this oscillating model is quite compact, enough so to serve as a portable device. It has several speed settings and provides fairly silent operation. Yet, we’d like to draw your attention to some things that make this fan stand out among its rivals.
- The fan is equipped with a footrest that can be adjusted from 0° to 90° so that you can direct the airflow just where you need it. What is more, this very rest can serve as a carry handle when you need to take your OPOLAR fan from one place to another.
- Adjustable timer rids you of the necessity to distract from your work to control the fan’s operation. Just set the timer to 1, 2, 4, or 8 hours and forget about it.
- The last but not the least important feature we’d like to mention about this tabletop fan is that it boasts multiple power options. Being a USB model, it can be connected to any gadget that can provide its proper operation – a PC, a laptop, a power bank. But what’s more, this appliance comes with an AC adapter that allows you to use it even in a room with no gadgets.
Green Fan for Personal Use
If you do your best to choose home appliances that are not only efficient but also environmentally-friendly, the Honeywell HTF210B might interest you. Its DC motor is the first thing that makes this appliance “green” since it needs half as much energy for proper operation than appliances working on AC motors. Also, the dimensions of this fan are much less than with the majority of its rivals: 5” x 5” x 13” - and it means that the manufacturer has used less plastic to produce this model. With this considered, the high and sleek design of the Honeywell tower fan looks stylish and will find its place in any modern interior.
Irreplaceable Office Helper
The Lasko table fan is a must-have appliance on your desk if you work on a computer in a hot office. At the first sight, it is a simple fan that doesn’t differ much from other devices of the type. This is an oscillating fan that works with the help of 3 blades that make up 6 inches in diameter, thus, it is a perfect choice for personal use. The fan has 2 speed settings adjustable with a manual switch. Please note that the controls are located at the back of the appliance so it might take you some time before you get used to switching between modes. The device has a tilting head to help you direct the airflow just the way you need. And of course, just like any table fan, this model from Lasko has a relatively quiet noise level of 40–50 dB.
What Is a Table Fan?
The name of table fans speaks for itself – in general, these are the appliances that are placed on the desk to cool down a small area around them. However, the fans of this type differ in size and power so it’s possible to use them as floor models to bring down the temperature in a room/office. You might be interested in these appliances because of several reasons. First of all, a table fan is compact and portable so you can place it anywhere – on the floor, on your desk, or even take it to your country house/on a trip. Secondly, it doesn’t need much power to operate, thus, is quite an economical appliance that won’t influence your electricity bills much. Finally, modern table fans come in a variety of designs and boast usability features. For example, you can control your fan remotely or try the benefits of a USB fan for yourself. With a great range of models available on the market, you’ll definitely find the one to meet your explicit needs and make this summer cooler, both at home and at work.
