With summer right around the corner, it's time to start getting ready to face sweltering days. If you're sick of sweating through the season, but don't want to shell out the big bucks for some pricey AC unit, you may want to try an energy-efficient cooling floor fan.
Don't know where to start? There are plenty of great, reviewer-loved options at Amazon, Dyson and Walmart. Whether you want a fan that can double as an air purifier or one that comes equipped with a remote control so you don't need to get up to adjust the temperature, there's a fan-favorite fan for you on this list.
From brands like Dyson, Honeywell and Black & Decker, shop high-tech yet budget-friendly cooling floor fans below.
This quiet fan projects over 77 gallons of air per second. Air can blow out of either the front or back of the machine, so you never have to move it. Control it with an app or your voice. You can also adjust it to oscillate up to 350-degrees for air in every direction. It also offers an ultra-quiet night mode for light sleepers. This Dyson fan also goes a step beyond the typical air purifier by destroying any existing formaldehyde in the air.
For a slightly more affordable option, pick up the Dyson Purifier Cool Purifying Fan TP07. It has the same features as the Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde TP09, minus the ability to destroy formaldehyde.
If you're not willing to shell out hundreds of dollars for a fan, check out the Honeywell QuietSet oscillating electric tower stand fan. It has five speeds, including a sleep setting, and comes with a remote control. It has a one-, two-, four- and eight-hour auto shut-off timer.
This bladeless fan is ultra-quiet and oscillates 90-degrees. It has six speeds and three modes (normal, natural and sleep). It even has an auto mode, where its wind velocity automatically changes with the temperature in your room. This fan also comes with a remote control.
This Amazon fan-favorite with remote control has three speeds. It can be set to automatically turn off and has a nighttime setting with a decreased fan speed. It's currently rated 4.6-stars on Amazon. "It is whisper-quiet and unobtrusive, while pushing out a lot of airflow," an Amazon reviewer says.
