10 best home fans

Home fan: feel the wind of change

Buying a fan in the summer is an important and rather troublesome thing. However, if you know what criteria you should pay attention to, and from which models it is better to stand aside, the choice will not take much time and will be justified.

By what criteria we choose?

  • Performance (power) fan should be the main determining factor in its selection. The larger the area of ​​the room, the higher the power of the device, respectively. However, this parameter requires special attention only when purchasing a floor or wall option, whereas in the desktop fan the size of the blades will be more decisive.
  • Noise level will affect the degree of comfort of the device, especially at night. This parameter should not be higher than 40 dB, it must be written in the technical characteristics of the fan. And for the nursery or bedroom, it is desirable to prefer even 30 dB.
  • Fan motor may be based on ball bearings or bushings, the first option is more efficient and creates less noise.
  • Additional functions devices, such as lights, timer, display, and even an ionizer, of course, are not so necessary, but quite comfortable. Naturally, the price will be much higher.

What fans are not worth buying

Any company specializing in the production of household appliances, manufactures and fans, so in such a wide range it is not surprising and confused. Let's try to determine the so-called negative rating - which devices should definitely not be paid attention to:

  • Excessively light fans are undesirable because of their instability while operating at high power. Although for the wall version this factor is not critical.
  • It is wise to treat fans of unknown or little-known Chinese brands sold at an ultra-low price. If, nevertheless, it is the cheapest option that is needed, it is important to make sure that a specific instance works correctly, that there are no extraneous noises and to carefully check the equipment. Such fans are usually supplied in several pieces in one box and confusion of parts (for example, slats for the base) is almost inevitable.
