Nobody likes to spend time in a room that is filled with a horrible cloud of hot air. It not only disrupts your work rhythm, but also spoils your room. So what can you do to cool things off? Well your best bet is a cooling tower fan that is basically a cooling system that stands upright and can be placed in a hidden corner of your room. Although a tower fan doesn’t change positions, it keeps oscillating due to which it is able to spread air around the room and keep a check on the temperature. There is a wide range of cooling tower fans available in the market today and if you’ve never used one before, you need to keep a few things in mind before you decide to buy your new fan. In this article, I discuss various specifications and strengths of the best cooling tower fan available at our disposal today.
So what are the most important features that the very best cooling tower fans are capable of offering? Well, firstly the design is of paramount importance. Cooling tower fans with metal chassis are durable and can last for a long time. You wouldn’t just want to be stuck with a fan that looks fancy but lacks substance. The design is also closely linked to the oscillating range of the fan. Needless to say the greater the oscillating range, the less you’ll need to relocate the fan for a better airflow. In addition to this, the design of a fan helps it stand out. The very best fans now have such amazing, unconventional designs and it is hard to believe that quite a few of them come without the traditional grills or blades. Such fans produce smooth and unchanging airflow, giving a unique experience to the users. Apart from the design, a number of top-notch cooling tower fans come with an electronic timer offering auto shut-off function which means you don’t need to worry about turning the fan off. This allows you to set the timer for up to eight hours depending on your needs and the size of your room.
As a consumer you are also interested in the noise levels associated with a fan. For this, one must look at the decibel rating, which gives you the best idea of the noise your fan will produce. Remember, no fan can operate completely silently, but ideally you are looking for a combination of low noise and efficient performance. By efficient performance I mean the how well can a fan can ‘move’ the air. Air movement rate of around 2,500 CFM (cubic feet per minute) is good enough if you want to cool a regular-sized room.
