The ability to control the action from the unit, a smartphone app or a home assistant is a huge bonus, but not the only feature of note on the Geek Aire Bladeless Air Tube. It also has 90 degrees of oscillation, nine speeds, and three breeze patterns with Natural, Strong and Wind.

The touch controls on the UltraBrite LED make it easy to use in the dark, but you won't need to do so, thanks to its bright lamp. It offers several lighting and cooling modes, so you can be comfortable — and visible — any time of day.

The upper part of this unit is fully adjustable and can be moved to all types of directions. It gives you three mode light temperatures – warm, natural, and bright – and its memory function remembers your last setting.

This fan provides a smooth stream of airflow, and you can choose the amount of cooling by switching between three fan speeds. This is the perfect device for studying, working, or simply chilling.

Several people have issues regarding its quality, saying that their unit died only after a few months. The UltraBrite’s lamp function is more reliable than its fan function. However, there are issues regarding its durability, so to end this review, we say purchase the UltraBrite desk lamp/bladeless fan with reservations.

An Overview On Bladeless Fans

Bladeless fans may be a bit pricier than their bladed counterparts, but they bring plenty of benefits. The design itself makes it a conversation piece. Chances are, some people you know have never even seen one in person. But there are plenty of other great reasons to choose a bladeless fan for your home or office.

Safety is one of the top reasons. If you have little ones around, a fan with blades can add stress you don’t need. If someone sticks a finger or an object in the areas where a blade would normally be, on a bladeless fan, it’s completely safe.

When it’s time to clean dust and debris from your bladeless fan, it’s far easier than with a fan with blades. You don’t have to work around those blades, after all, which makes it a breeze. However, some bladeless fans tend to attract dust and potentially create more work for you.

Once you move beyond the bladeless aspect of a fan, many of the same features you expect from any fan apply. Some fans oscillate, cooling off a bigger area, while others are set up only to blast air directly. But even with oscillating fans, it’s important to check blowing power to make sure you’ll get the force you need if you’re trying to cool a large room.

If you’re using your fan in a bedroom or other living space, a remote control can come in handy. One thing to look for is whether you’ll have all the controls you need on the fan itself. Some fans put all the controls on the remote, which leaves you unable to adjust settings if you misplace it.

Timers also come with many bladeless fans. With a built-in timer, you can set your fan to work for a specific time period, then automatically shut off. This might be good if you use your fan to help you fall asleep at night, but you want to conserve energy by having it shut off once you’ve drifted off.

DWYM Fun Fact

Dyson has long been credited with inventing the bladeless fan, but documentation from the Intellectual Property Office shows otherwise. The first time Dyson applied for a patent for its technology, the request was rejected. It seems Dyson’s fan was a little too similar in design to a desktop fan patented by Tokyo Shibaura Electric way back in 1981. Whether or not that patent is still in use is irrelevant. Dyson had to adjust its patent request to emphasize the difference in its design — specifically, a Coanda surface that promotes airflow. Although Dyson’s technology may be unique, the bladeless fan itself was conceptualized more than three decades ago.

The Bladeless Fans Buying Guide

  • The first thing to consider is how easy it will be to set your fan up once you take it out of the box. The Lasko 4930 Oscillating High Velocity Tower Fan comes preassembled, which means you can take it out of the package, plug it in and immediately enjoy cool air. With the Honeywell Quietset 8-Speed Whole-Room Tower Fan, you’ll need to put together the base, which is just a matter of snapping two parts together and tightening a locking nut. Once you’ve done that, the tower will slide right into the base.
  • Once the fan is in place, working the settings becomes the next challenge. The Honeywell Quietset 8-Speed Whole-Room Tower Fan has touch buttons that make it easy to choose the setting you want. You’ll just press the fan button until you reach the level of cooling you want and enjoy.
  • One of the best things about bladeless fans is that they’re easier to clean than those with blades. However, the Lasko 4930 Oscillating High Velocity Tower Fan and Honeywell Quietset 8-Speed Whole-Room Tower Fan have louvered vents for adjusting airflow. Those vents make cleanup a little more challenging. The Dyson Cool AM06 10 inch Air Multiplier Desk Fan and Dyson Cool Air Multiplier Tower Fan have air-intake vents that can pull dust inward, and you’ll have to vacuum those on a fairly regular basis. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s directions for cleaning to avoid damaging the motor.
  • Although cooling power can be subjective, each fan has its own way of cooling an area. The Lasko 4930 Oscillating High Velocity Tower Fan has a high-velocity blower, making it ideal for those wanting a blast of air rather than more subtle cooling. If you want multiple options for your cooling, consider the Honeywell Quietset 8-Speed Whole-Room Tower Fan, Dyson Cool AM06 10 inch Air Multiplier Desk Fan or Dyson Cool Air Multiplier Tower Fan, each of which offers a wide range of settings. One thing setting the Honeywell Quietset 8-Speed Whole-Room Tower Fan apart from others in this area, is that it has both speed and noise level settings. Those range from Sleep to Power Cool to give you the noise and wind level you need for every situation.
  • Oscillation can come in handy, particularly when cooling a large room. The Lasko 4930 Oscillating High Velocity Tower Fan oscillates 45 degrees, with louvers that allow you to direct air. The Honeywell Quietset 8-Speed Whole-Room Tower Fan can circulate air at a rate of approximately 110 cubic feet per minute, making it best for small to midsized rooms. Although the Dyson Cool AM06 10 inch Air Multiplier Desk Fan is relatively small, it uses something called Air Multiplier technology, allowing it to spread air around. One of the best things about this model is that it reduces energy use by 30% when compared to previous Dyson bladeless models. The larger Dyson Cool Air Multiplier Tower Fan also uses Air Multiplier technology and energy efficiency to provide cooling without doing major damage to your utility bill.
