Lasko Portable Electric 42" Oscillating Tower Fan Review

Lasko Fan Review
Several years ago, my husband brought home a Lasko portable electric fan. I didn't think much about it at the time since he purchased it for the garage so he could use it when working on our cars.  However, when I got my recumbent exercise bike, I found that I needed a fan during my workout time.  I saw no reason to chill down the whole house just so I could stay cool while exercising. I stealthily ventured to the garage and "borrowed" his tower fan.  Man, that fan is awesome!

Since then, we have purchased 2 more Lasko tower fans so he has one back in his garage, I have one sitting next to my recumbent exercise bike, and our son has one in his bedroom.

Because it is a 42" tower fan, I don't have to get off the exercise bike to turn it on halfway through my workout when I start to get hot. It sits right next to my bike so I simply reach over and hit the button. Since it oscillates, there isn't a constant flow of cold air on one spot either.  However, oscillation is optional if you don't want it to move.

It is also tall enough to really make a difference beside a bed.  The fan is cooling you, not under the bed or the bed sheets.  The same is true if you are sitting in a recliner.

The Lasko tower fans come with a remote control that the guys use when working in the garage, in bed, or sitting in their recliners. The remote control makes it very convenient to turn on without getting up.

If you know you only want it on for a limited amount of time, like until you go to sleep, there is a built in timer that can be used to shut it off in 30 minutes, or up to 7½ hours.

It is lightweight enough that it is easy to move using the built-in grip handle on the back, which is how I was able to sneak it from the garage without being heard.

My favorite feature of this fan is how quiet it is. Of course, I can hear it, but it is nowhere near as loud as the old round small fan in our attic.


Features of the Lasko Portable Electric 42" Oscillating Tower Fan

I already mentioned the height and how quiet the fan is, but I have yet to mention how slender it is.  The base of the unit is only 13"!  That allows the fan to easily fit in narrow space, even a hallway without taking up much room.  That is very important, especially in a small room, or if you don't want it to detract too much from your lovely decor.

 Lasko Portable Electric 42 inch Tower FanCheck PriceHere is a recap of all of the features:

  • Tall - 42 inches
  • Narrow - Base (the largest section) is only 13"
  • Multiple Speeds
  • Optional Oscillation
  • Timer Option
  • Quiet Fan
  • Lightweight - Easy to move
  • Inexpensive


A fan is a necessity in most homes from time to time.  I've even needed one in my kitchen when I am cooking for extended periods of time, especially if both ovens are on.  As I said earlier, I see no reason to chill down the whole house when only one room, or area, needs to be cooler.

If you need a fan, I highly recommend the Lasko tower fan!

  1. I agree completely with how useful a good fan is when you only need to cool down a certain area of the house. This tower fan looks like it meets a number of needs and uses. Thanks much for your recommendation, Mouse.

  2. Oh this fan sounds great and my help solve one of our household problems. My husband is always cold and I'm hot a lot of the time so one of these fans sounds like just what I need. Thanks for the recommend.

  3. Since we don’t have central air conditioning and some rooms have windows that can’t accommodate a window A/C unit, we could definitely use a couple of these tower fans! The height, slender profile, oscillation option and quiet operation really appeal to me. Thanks for sharing this great find!

  4. Those tower fans are great. We had one in our home and used it all the time. Like you said, why cool the whole house when you only need it in one room. We also used it in our rec room which had a woodstove in it. Winter months we would use the fan to blow around the warmed air. It kept the whole basement warm. Now my son has it and still uses it. If we ever need a new one, we will get one of these! Thanks!

  5. These fans are terrific. The size is especially ideal for any room - they'll tuck into corners and don't take a lot of space up - I have a fan/heater tall standing one by my desk. It took a while for me to agree to get one, but I'm sure glad I did.
