THINGS NEED TO CONSIDER BEFORE BUYING A TOWER FAN

1. OPERATIONAL NOISE LEVEL

First, the most important thing you need to check is the noise level of the tower fan. If you are using the tower fan in the living room where you watch TV or in the bedroom, you need to buy the quietest cooling option. We can’t imagine fan without motors. It is the most important and essential element of a fan. But motor creates noise when it starts rotating. The manufacturers of tower fan trying their level best to minimize the sound in a tolerable scale. The noise level of a fan measures typically in decibel (dB) unit. So before buying a tower fan, find out the decibel rating carefully. Remember, Remember, the decibel is a logarithmic function. If a small change in the value of the sound score, you may find there is a massive increase in the sound level. The main problem is you may not find the noise rating of the specific fan model in the specification of the fan. We suggest you to use a sound measuring app in your iPhone to measure the sound level of the fan. Our experts used the pro version of Decibel 10 by SkyPaw Co. Ltd for measuring the sound level of our reviewed tower fans.

So if you like to buy Dyson AM07, you can only you need to operate in low and medium speed setting.

2. POWER AND CAPACITY OF FAN

The best way you can understand a fan power and capacity is to find the CFM rating of the fan. CFM is defined as the air flowing speed generated by a fan in minutes multiplied by the area that the fan is cooling in cubic feet. You can calculate the time a fan needed to circulate the air in the specific room area. Just divide the measurement of your room (in cubic feet) by the CFM rating of the fan. For Example, If the volume of your room is 1000 cubic feet and the CFM rating of the fan is 2000, then The time to circulate the air in room= 1000/2000=0.5 minute Room height x area of the room in square feet = measurement of room volume in cubic feet. The ideal air circulation time of a tower fan must be 3 or less than this value. For a room of 2000 cubic feet, 650 CFM rated tower fan is enough for comfort.
