The mercury reached highs ? The heat begins to invade your interior ? To not leave you to wrestle with and find pleasant temperatures, why not take the plunge and you have a fan ?
If you have already had a glimpse of what it offers the market of fans, then you have probably realized that there are many characteristics to consider. To help you see more clearly, we have dissected the main types of fans and their specificities so that you find the one you need.
Desktop, on foot or in a column.
The first things it is advisable to dwell the style and the size of the fan. On the market, there are three main types : office (on base), on foot and in a column.
Desktop fans are smaller and designed to be placed easily on a table or a piece of furniture. They will usually keep you cool if they are near you, but will probably struggle to cool a whole room.
Also, many products of this kind are quite large and can occupy a large part of the surface of your desk.
However, there are smaller ones, some of which feed by USB but of course they are less powerful..
The fans on foot to adopt a circular design similar to those of office, but are larger (up to a height of 1m50 to 1m80) and more powerful. They are better suited to large rooms.
Their disadvantages are that they occupy a lot of space and are not so stylish to adorn your living room.
Finally, the fans in the column will tend to have a height similar to that of previous models.
However, their design is more slender, with elements of the fan installed inside the main body, rather than just having grids with propellers on the top, and be mounted on the foot.
Their aesthetic is, therefore, more worked, and they are more likely to be equipped with additional features such as purification of air.
With or without a blade ?.
You should be a fan with or without a blade ? Models with blades are of a standard design, while those without adopt the style popularized by Dyson. It is a new generation of fan.
Technically, they are not completely devoid of blades, as they are camouflaged on the inside and therefore not visible.
For their advantages (beyond their modern design), they are much less noisy and safer. In fact, no risk that your hair or hands of the children does not stand in the way of the propellers.
Their only drawback, and not the least, is that they tend to be very expensive, especially if you opt for a brand such as Dyson.
Heating, air purification..
Finally, many models have additional features that go beyond the simple act of blowing air. Dyson, for example, offers models Hot + Cool ventilation in the summer and warm in the winter, the two-in-one.
On the market, you can also find air purifiers, and fans combined. They filter the air, and then eliminate the pollutants and allergens before blowing purified air. The Dyson Pure Cool are a perfect illustration but other brands are riding on this trend.
There are also an increasing number of connected fans, some of them are even compatible with virtual assistants.
Thanks to them, determine a time of turning the power on/off, remotely control their intensity/swing, and go by Alexa or the wizard Google to turn on/off with your voice.
Dyson Pure Hot+Cool .
This is the fan’s ultimate because, as its name indicates, the Pure Hot+Cool is a device two-in-one, which cools and heats your home. It can stay in your living room all year.
