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 FanHere 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
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!
