Last summer was incredibly hot - so hot that I am thinking about getting an Oscillating Floor Fan with Remote Control. A smaller table fan didn't do it for us anymore, not at the temperatures of 100 degrees F and over. I believe it was an investment since the coming summer is promising to be as hot or even worse. So we are preparing in advance since when the hot spell starts shops usually run out of anything capable of cooling the air down!
Being tall and powerful these devices are very effective at keeping everyone comfortable in hot weather inside or outside, and depending on the energy they consume - quite economical. If you don't live in a place where very high temperatures last for a long time in summer to require air conditioning installed around the house, this is just what you need. Being tall, they cover more of the area than their short relatives!
I believe the 5 options shortlisted here are the best of the good bunch of products I've researched. They have all the features I've been looking for, are good value for money, look powerful and durable, have a decent number of reviews and a rating of 4 stars or over. I hope my list will help you with your own search - and to enjoy your summer! ;-)
