This unique looking fan comes to your from the design minds at Honeywell. Set up on a flared pedestal for stability, this Honeywell QuietSet Tower Fan elevates its cooling ability to the next level. While the pedestal does mean that you need a little more floor space to hold the fan, the new height means that more air is blown around at a height where you can feel it, instead of sweeping the floor.
This fan has 8 different speeds that let you select the air speed and the amount of sound the fan emits during use. These different settings are:
● White Noise
● Power Cool
As you increase the settings from Sleep to Power Cool, you’ll get a corresponding increase in wind speed and noise. But the fan is never overwhelmingly loud. Unfortunately, neither is the wind speed. This fan is best suited for small to medium sized rooms for the highest efficiency.
The fan comes with a remote control that lets you control all aspects of the fan from the comfort of your bed. And you can also set a timer for the fan to run with an automatic shut off at the end. The times available are 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hour, and 8 hours.
The display is bright and easy to read, with buttons that have a great tactile feel. And if you’re concerned about the brightness at night, you can set them to five different dimness levels ranging from 100 percent to fully off at 25 percent increments.
The fan also oscillates, so you can get a full sweep coverage. A six-foot power cord means that you have plenty of flexibility when it comes to placement as well.
Benefits of Air Circulation
Air circulation doesn’t just feel good, it actually has some very real concrete benefits to your health and to your home. So keep those ceiling fans going and set up the tower fans in the corners.
● Reduces Allergens – Keeping the air moving means that allergens and dust never has the chance to settle. That means no unpleasant surprises as you sit down; no puffs of dust flying up to make you sneeze and make your eyes water. Keeping the air moving means that your existing HVAC system can sweep the moving air readily into your ductwork where it can be filtered out. And if you don’t have an HVAC system, then the air movement will get the particles over to your clean air filter and removal.
● Keeps it Dry – Air movement helps prevent condensation buildup. That’s not because you’re running a dehumidifier. Rather, air that moves can take advantage of the evaporative properties of water. And air is never at full absolute humidity, so there’s usually room for a little more moisture. And keeping the water off the walls and the nooks and crannies means that mold and mildew have no place to grow. And nobody wants mold or mildew as house guests.
● Keeps you Cool – Of course moving air helps cool you down. That’s why they call it the windchill factor. With enough air movement, you’re not only going to feel cooler, you’re also going to increase the effectiveness of your AC unit. As the fan blows the air over you, the moisture on your skin evaporates, lowering your temperature. If you want to enhance the cooling effect, lay a damp cloth on your skin. You’ll be surprised at how much that helps cool you down.
● Keeps Money In Your Wallet – By moving the air around, you’re helping move the cold air around during summer and move warm air during winter. This means that your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your home warm or cool. A ceiling fan running in the proper direction in the winter will pull cool air up in the middle of the room and force the warm air up high down along the walls. That keeps you warm while avoiding chilling you out.
