Floor fans help to escape the summer heat in a residential building, apartment or at work. Modern electrical appliances have a number of useful functions that help create a comfortable indoor climate. Every year, more and more advanced fans appear on the HVAC market. A rich assortment makes it difficult for an ordinary consumer to choose. Therefore, the recommendations of our experts will be useful and informative.

Fan selection recommendations

Power. One of the main characteristics of the floor fan is power. It is selected taking into account the area of ​​the room. Most often, it is enough to look at the passport, where the manufacturer indicates both the power and the maximum area of ​​the room.

Noise level. During prolonged operation of the fan, the noise level becomes an important parameter of the device. All devices generate a certain sound when the blade rotates. Models with noise up to 30 dB are considered quiet. But the maximum noise level for household fans is limited to 40 dB.

Electric motor. The noise level, like power, depends largely on the design of the electric motor. The more the manufacturer has used real ball or needle bearings (and not bushings), the quieter and more durable the climatic product will be.

Functionality. A modern fan is more than an electric motor, housing and blade.

  1. The presence of a rotary mechanism allows you to quickly and efficiently ventilate the room. Modern models automatically change the direction of the blowing.
  2. The sleep timer allows the user to set the most advantageous timing. For example, you can program the device to turn off before bedtime or before leaving for work.
  3. Backlighting is a necessary option if the fan will be running at night. Otherwise, sleepily, you can easily run into an electrical appliance.
  4. In the presence of a humidifier, it is possible not only to reduce the temperature effect on the human body, but also to improve the quality of indoor air.
  5. Thanks to the built-in fragrance, you can fill the room with a pleasant smell.
  6. The remote control makes the operation of the floor fan as comfortable as possible.

We have selected 11 best brands of floor fans for our review. All of them are sold in the Russian trade network. When allocating seats, the editorial staff of the journal relied on the conclusions of the expert community, taking into account the feedback from consumers.
