The Best Fans

On this main page you’ll find articles, sorted by topic or category, related to electric cooling fans.

What makes a good fan?

The right kind of fan greatly depends on your situation and needs, but mainly a good fan has the following: 1) a good quality construction and reliability, 2) good airflow for cooling or creating white noise as needed, and 3) the features you need (or even doesn’t have some features, if a more basic model is your choice).

Additionally, a good fan is stable whether placed on the floor or used in a window, for example. Box fans and others used for white noise should have a good motor and fan blade assembly as that’s important for creating a range of sound frequencies to mask out noise.
