Overall Take

The Dyson Cool Air Multiplier Tower Fan is a bladeless fan, making it not only safer but unique in its design. However, you'll pay for that uniqueness with a price tag that is much higher than competing tower fans. This fan oscillates to make sure air doesn't flow in only one direction. In our analysis of 76 expert reviews, the Dyson Dyson Cool Air Multiplier Tower Fan placed 2nd when we looked at the top 10 products in the category. For the full ranking, see below.

The sheer amount of air this thing moves is amazing. It's a real luxury to have around, and I've found myself using the AM07 every night on a low setting.

The controller feels a lot like an Apple remote in terms of comfort, size and aesthetics, and is by far the best option amongst the finalists.

Cleaning the fan is easy and keeps it running top notch. You only need to use a microfiber cloth to wipe around the inside ridge, and just vacuum the dust collected around the base.

Their fans offer a great variety of functions, including the Air Multiplier™ technology. This technology safeguards uninterrupted streams of smooth air.
- Your Tower Fans
The fan carries no external fans or blades and in short, air is sucked in through the base and pushed up and out through the perimeter of the oval portion of the fan.

This fan is safe, quiet and easy to use. Because there are no blades it’s also much easier to clean than a traditional fan.

What experts didn't like
While the AM07 oscillates left and right at a 90-degree angle, it does lack the ability to tilt. This limits where you can aim the airflow.

On the negative side, that also means there’s a good chance it’ll end up in your couch cushions.

This tower fan's patented technology comes with a higher price tag than other models

Limited Tilt. The way that the Dyson fans are designed, there are only a few select models that come with “tilt” capabilities.

Can only control certain features from the remote and not on the base.

The only downside to this model is the high price.

An Overview On Tower Fans

Floor fans used to not only be unsightly, but also space-consuming. With the advent of tower fans, though, consumers now have the best of both worlds. You can slip a tower fan into a corner and cool a decently sized area without it being all that noticeable.

But not all tower fans are the same. The most important feature is how effective your fan is at cooling, but there are a variety of factors that determine that. Some fans have integrated thermostats designed to keep an area at a specific temperature, while others only give you various settings options. With a remote, the latter isn’t all that inconvenient since they let you change how the fan reacts without having to walk over to the unit.

Like tabletop and floor versions, tower fans usually are best when they oscillate, distributing the air across an area rather than blasting you steadily. But oscillation can take up additional room. If that’s a concern, consider a tower fan that oscillates internally, meaning the exterior of the unit stays steady.

Bladeless fans have become increasingly popular in recent years, providing the same airflow without putting your family’s safety at risk. Bladeless tower fans are also easier to clean, so keep that in mind while you’re deciding between a bladeless and a bladed fan.

A bonus feature of some tower fans is an air ionizer, which not only keeps you cool but purifies the air as it works. This feature doesn’t make the fan that much more expensive, and it can save you the money you would have spent on a separate air ionizer.

One major deciding factor when searching for a tower fan is cost. Many fans are priced below $100, but you will find some tower fans that are much more expensive. You’ll get additional features for that cost, but only you can decide whether those items are important enough to shell out hundreds of extra dollars.

DYWM Fun Fact

Air is the key to how a bladeless fan works. It may seem like nothing is happening in the area where the blades would normally be, but air is moving along that tube you see. A brushless electric motor in the pedestal of the fan pulls air in, then pushes it through the tube, where it moves until it reaches a slit. That’s where the air rushes out, providing the breeze you’d get if you stood directly in front of the fan. The slits are actually in the back of the fan, but using the laws of physics, these fans can multiply the air coming out of the back before it’s pushed to the front, where you benefit from it.

The Tower Fan Buying Guide

  • If you prefer a fan that allows you to “set it and forget it,” consider the Honeywell QuietSet Whole Room Tower Fan. You choose from eight different cooling options that keep your area at the desired temperature. These settings are power cool, cool, refresh, relax, white noise, calm, whisper and sleep. Most other fans operate on a three-speed setup, including the Soleus Air 35″ Tower Fan, Soleus Air 35″ Tower Fan and Lasko Wind Curve Tower Fan.
  • Although you may not think about it when you’re looking simply at cooling power, the Lasko Wind Curve Tower Fan packs in special air ionizer technology that keeps your air pure by removing dust from your immediate surroundings.
  • Traditional fans can be dangerous for a variety of reasons. But bladeless fans like the Dyson Cool Air Multiplier Tower Fan keep little fingers safe. However, you don’t have to spend more to get that safety. Even though the Lasko Wind Curve Tower Fan isn’t bladeless, the cage is built so that even small fingers can’t get past it.
  • While the Honeywell QuietSet Whole Room Tower Fan, Dyson Cool Air Multiplier Tower Fan, Soleus Air 35″ Tower Fan and Lasko Wind Curve Tower Fan all oscillate, the Soleus Air 35″ Tower Fan oscillates internally, which means the external housing doesn’t move.
  • One quick decider as you’re shopping will likely be price. The Dyson Cool Air Multiplier Tower Fan is significantly more expensive, with a price tag topping $300. Compare that to the below $100 prices of the Honeywell QuietSet Whole Room Tower Fan, Soleus Air 35″ Tower Fan and Lasko Wind Curve Tower Fan, and you’ll likely have to take a close look at whether the Dyson is worth the extra expense.
  • One thing that does put the Dyson Cool Air Multiplier Tower Fan, aside from its bladeless build, is its appearance. The fan has a very unique contemporary design that sets it apart from standard floor fans.
