How to Choose a Tower Fan
Finding the perfect tower fan for you is not an easy task, especially with so many on the market.
In this section of the guide, we help you to figure out which questions you should be asking yourself before you go to buy, as well as a few of the features you should be looking out for.
Price Range - How much have you set aside for your tower fan? Are you willing to spend a little more or is it quite set? By answering these questions, you can really narrow down your options when it comes to selecting a suitable model.
Where are you using your fan - Will it be in the living room, the bedroom, or somewhere else in the home? Answering this question means you can then figure out how much space the fan needs to cover.
Do you need one for a large room or a small one? The models listed below contain fans for every room size, and so it is important to read the description carefully.
Noise - Generally, if you are using the fan in the bedroom, you won’t want a great deal of noise as it could disturb you while you are sleeping.
Similarly, you may want your working environment to be quiet. However, if you are putting it in the corner of the living room, you might not mind a little background noise.

Oscillation - is also an important factor. Many tower fans will oscillate, evenly distributing cool air around the room. However, there are also those that do not. These only push air in one direction, which can lead to it stagnating.
An oscillating fan is highly recommended, especially in the case of medium and large rooms. Oscillation tends to provide the occupants of the room with more cool air and comfort.
Reviews - You should always check out the reviews for the tower fan you are looking to purchase. They can tell you a lot about a product and its overall quality, giving you good insight before you buy.
Remote - While it is not essential, a remote can make things easier if you wish to adjust the temperature from the comfort of your armchair or bed. It’s a nice additional feature, especially if you are about to go to sleep.
An LCD display - is also something to consider when you purchase your tower fan. This allows you to see the current setting clearly, and also tends to have a night mode so that you can read the display clearly in all lighting conditions.
We have looked at some fantastic tower fans in this guide, all of which are suited to different purposes and requirements.
