These will help you to be a fan of the heat.
If you’re stuck without air conditioning this summer or you just desperately want to keep cool, fans are great to have around the house, especially tower fans. Whether you’re slaving away in a steamy kitchen and you need a cooldown, or you want to sleep soundly in a refreshing bed, have a fan nearby is the trick to beat the heat.
As much as you may want a fan, finding the right one can be difficult for many different reasons. If the one you find says it’s ideal for a bedroom, could you make it work for your living room too? If you just need one for your desk, do you even need a $100+ tower fan?
This list from prices low to high will give you the answers you need for anyone looking for something budget-friendly or are ready to splurge.
