Choosing the right floor fan for your home-ipanergy
Even if you have central air conditioning in your home, you might find certain rooms are warmer than you like. Adding a floor fan to that room can help circulate air to make the living space more comfortable. Typically, fans blow air on you. Floor fans are so easily adaptable to wherever you put them that you can use them as an exhaust fan as well. Simply turn the fan so it pulls hot air out of the room
1.Choose a floor fan that allows you to adjust the height and the speed of the airflow. By tipping an adjustable floor fan forward or backward, you have better control over where the air blows from the fan. Fans that allow you to direct the air onto the ceiling and back onto a flat surface, such as a bed, provide cooling comfort in a stuffy bedroom. These are a good choice for people who don't like to have a fan blowing directly on them.
2.Pick a floor fan with an oscillating head. With a turning head, an oscillating fan’s air can cool several people in one room.
3.Look for a floor fan that fits into the space you want to cool. A large fan serves no purpose if it’s too large to fit into the room you need to cool. If you have a small, cramped room to cool, consider purchasing a tower floor fan rather than a traditional box-type floor fan.
4.Select a fan with large, metal blades. The metal blades are slightly louder than plastic blades, but they are capable of moving more air. Typically, more blades move more air.
5.Find a fan that's easy to move. Look for fans with conveniently placed handles or wheels.
6.Check the fan for safety features. Look for fans with grids small enough that children cannot insert their fingers. The fan should have a sturdy base that makes it difficult to tip over. The case of the fan should be metal or sturdy plastic.
7.Operate the fan in the store. If there is no display with fans operating, make sure you can return the fan to the store if it doesn’t move enough air to suit you or if it is too loud.
8.Buy a fan with a remote control if it’s within your budget. This allows you to set the fan’s speed and direction without getting out of your easy chair. Some fans even offer timers that automatically turn them off.
