quietest tower fans

Tower fans are great at cooling large open-air spaces, as compared to air conditioners. They work in a simple and straightforward manner by moving the air around a room in order to create a wind-like effect.

Using a tower fan will definitely make you feel cooler, especially during summer. They provide you with the same kind of breeze you would experience if you were to go out in nature on a windy day.

What fans do in general is to cool you, instead of cooling the environment, and the air circulates around the room decreasing the temperature, which is not visible with the naked eye unless you use a thermometer. For this reason, they are appliances that every household should have.

If you are like me, and the temperatures skyrocket especially in summer, nothing gives me more joy than spending my days enjoying a good book while the fan gets rid of all that hot air. Of course, an ice-cold drink is never far away from me.

Now, I have tried many different types of fans, and for years I used the standing fans which I would keep very close to me, but, they were way too noisy, plus, I would almost always end up with a bad cold. I decided to try out the tower fans, and after a long search, I found what I needed. I love it because it keeps me extremely cool, is very quiet, and I never have a runny nose afterward.

For this reason, I decided to do a review of some of the best quiet tower fans in the market today, so you can also be enlightened. I hope you will love this review.
