When it comes to tower fans, size definitely matters. You need to choose a tower fans based on the room, where you intend to place it in. Larger areas will need bigger tower fans and vice versa. Normally, the product description of the tower fan will give you an idea of the area that the fan can cover.
Oscillation is one of the most important features of the fan. It is not a secret that most tower fans can oscillate, but only the high-quality ones will oscillate at different speeds. Moreover, you would also like to know how far the fan is actually able to oscillate.
If you have an irregularly shaped apartment, I would recommend looking into the oscillation abilities of the fan more closely.
The remote control is an outstandingly convenient feature of any appliance, same as of the the tower fans.
A remote control allows the user to turn on/off the fan without having to go near the appliance.
Another cool feature that complements a good tower fan is the sleep timer feature.
This feature will allow you to set the timer and go to sleep – your fan will work for the period of time you have set and will shut off automatically.
Pay close attention to the material of the tower fan, when buying it. Modern tower fans are made of plastic, which makes them very lightweight. However, if the plastic is of poor quality, the device will not last long.
Thus, opt for high-quality plastic tower fans. The plastic also makes them portable, which is a great advantage, since you can use the same device in different rooms, which is impossible with some stationary models.
Regardless of if you have children in your household or not, safety is one of the key factors to pay attention to. Make sure that the safety grate that covers the fan is not large enough to let fingers through it.
Some of the fan grills are detachable for cleaning, while others are not. Go for the removable grills, since your tower fan will need regular maintenance to prolong its life.
