One great thing about this fan is that it doesn’t require a huge amount of energy in order to run, so this by default means that it will not affect your electricity bills in a long-term, and you will be saved from additional fees.

The fan is made from a lightweight plastic and metal. The plastic isn’t hard or thick, but still well made. I imagine if put through some extreme trauma the base may crack, but for just normal wear and tear this fan will stand up to quite a bit of long term use.The base is wide and sturdy, but not weighted.

The COSTWAY Pedestal Fan in black has a weighted base to help prevent the fan from being knocked over. It’s made of high quality materials with 6 total blades to better circulate the air around your space.

The remote control seemed to work well (which has been an issue with a number of other pedestal fans) and you can also set oscillation from the remote control, which some fans do not have, and really, should be a compulsory inclusion on a remote control.

There is a timer to help you set the time to close the fan and even economize electric power. It has a convenient electronic timer that can be set from 0.5 to 7.5 hours.

An Overview On Pedestal Fans

A pedestal fan is not only an excellent tool for keeping your family members comfortable during the warmer summer days, but its also great for circulating the air within the home all year long. This type of fan requires no mounting. All you need is a flat surface like a floor or desk. Today there are a great number of pedestal fans on the market, which can make choosing the perfect model confusing. This guide will help you identify the fan that best meets your needs.

Determine how portable you need the fan to be. A lightweight model is easy to move from room to room. The Lasko 52″ Pedestal Tower Fan even comes with a built-in handle to make transporting the fan a breeze.  There are also models that are designed to be small and compact to fit in tight spaces. These are better options for apartments and offices with low square footage.

Check the size of the pedestal fan’s base and pole. If you have small children or pets in the home, you’ll need a model with a sturdy base and wider pole, like the Rowenta Oscillating Fan, 4-Speed. You don’t want a small base and thin pole, as these are more easily knocked over.

Look at the settings to make sure you get the features you desire. It’s common for pedestal fans to come with three speed settings (slow, medium and fast), however, you can get a model with as many as five speeds, such as the Rowenta Turbo Silence Stand Fan, 5-Speed. When examining the control panel, you’ll also want to look for an energy-savings mode or LED display lights to make the buttons easier to read.

Decide whether you’d also like to be able to change the fan’s settings with a remote control. This is an attractive feature for those looking to operate the fan from a bed or an office chair. Remotes also sometimes come with the ability to program an automatic shut-off time of between 1 and 4 hours. The Lasko 18″ Cyclone Pedestal Fan even has an added sleep mode on its remote.

Investigate the fan’s movement. Does it oscillate? Can it be tilted up toward the ceiling, left straight ahead or pointed toward the floor? You want to make sure you have the ability to get the airflow directed where you want it to go. If you plan on using the fan while you sleep, you’ll also want to check that it runs quietly, as some pedestal fans have loud motors.

Finally, consider the color scheme in the room where you plan on placing the fan. Silver, white and black are the most common pedestal fan colors, although you may find one with colored blades. Some fans are two colors, with the shell being one color and the fan blades another.

DWYM Fun Fact

The first electric fan was invented more than 100 years ago. In 1882, a man by the name of Schuyler Skaats Wheeler created a basic fan that only had two blades. Mr. Wheeler was actually an employee of the great Thomas Edison, who is created with many inventions, including the light bulb. Eventually, Wheeler ended up holding the title of president of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers.

Electric fans have evolved over the years with the first models being constructed out of brass and the newer models being made from plastic. While fans don’t actually cool the temperatures in a room like air conditioners, they do provide relief from the heat. This occurs as the wind generated from the fan comes in contact with the sweat or moisture on your skin and quickly causes that moisture to evaporate.

Summer isn’t the only time to put an electric fan to use. Homeowners can actually use fans in the winter to stay warm. Since heat rises, a fan can be set up high on a table or bookcase with the blades pointing downward. As the warm air rises and reaches the fan, the fan captures and pushes the warm air back down to where the humans and pets of the home are resting or gathering about.

The Pedestal Fan Buying Guide

  • Review the company’s satisfaction guarantee or return policies before you make a purchase. To protect your investment, you’ll want to make sure you’ll be able to get a replacement or a refund if the fan isn’t delivered in a condition that matches the product’s description.
  • Check to see whether you need any tools to put the pedestal fan together. Some models require tools for assembly, while others don’t.
  • Your pedestal fan will collect dust and dirt over time. It’s a good idea to clean the fan out once a month. To do this, you’ll need to unplug the unit before you start cleaning, or you’ll risk getting a potentially harmful shock. Remove the cage to the fan blades and use your vacuum cleaner’s wand extension to vacuum out as much of the lint as you can. Afterward, dampen a cloth and use that to wipe down the blades. You can wait for the blades to air dry or dry them with a lint-free cloth or paper towel. Replace the cage and your fan is ready to go.
  • Always make sure the pedestal fan is lying flat on the floor so that the base is sturdy. You also need to tuck the cord back toward the wall to keep members of your home from accidentally tripping on it.
  • Never use any type of electric fan, including a pedestal fan, in a bathroom. Water and electricity do not mix!
  • Keep an eye on the fan’s cord and plug. Cease using the fan if you notice the cord is frayed or there are any defects in the plug.
  • After your pedestal fan has lived a good life and is no longer in working conditions, you can remove the fan’s blades and use them to make unique crafts. You can use them to make a model airplane, a chalkboard for a child, a butterfly for your garden or even a Christmas wreath.
  • There are several factors that come into play when a manufacturer sets a price for a pedestal fan. One factor is the number of settings. The Rowenta Turbo Silence Stand Fan, 5-Speed costs slightly more than then Rowenta Oscillating Fan, 4-Speed, as it has more fan speeds and an additional timer. Another factor is convenience. The Lasko 18″ Cyclone Pedestal Fan is a bit bulkier than the Lasko 52″ Pedestal Tower Fan, which is designed to save space, and so it costs a few dollars more.
