Living in Florida, beating the heat is not just important, it's vital. It gets way too hot here. And it is not just so hot that is causes discomfort, it is so hot that it can literally cause heat stroke and sun poisoning. I have personally suffered both more than once. It's not fun to say the least.
With my poor husband working outside in the heat, 5 days a week sometimes 12 hours a day, the last thing he needs when he comes home is anything less than a cool, relaxing atmosphere. We have central air of course, but we do not was to cool the whole house to 68 degrees when it is in he 90s outside, that makes for a sky high electric bill.
Not only that, but with 2 young kids, we can't make it too cold for them. My husband is very warm blooded, he just runs hotter than most people, so he always has to have cool air on him whenever he has the option.
We used to have box fans that he would use in our bedroom when he was watching TV, and especially while we would sleep. He cannot sleep without air blowing directly on him. Now we have ceiling fans, and we use those, but he still did not feel cool enough. We decided to get a new fan.
Box fans are horrible though. They wobble and make noise and take up too much space and just look really tacky. Plus, they don't even oscillate. The space in our room is very limited as it is, and the last think we need is a big, bulky, ugly fan for everyone to trip over.
I decided that we needed a tower fan. Since they cost a bit more, it was an important decision as to which one we would get. But when I discovered that one of my favorite brands, Ozeri, offers a tower fan, the choice was obvious.
I have always been more than impressed with everything that Ozeri makes. Their products are all such amazing quality. They do exactly what they are supposed to do, better than the so called competition(like it could even be a contest), and they are made to last.
I knew that the Ozeri Ultra 42 inch Wind Fan would be incredible.
It is so gorgeous. Not only does it not look ugly, but it actually looks good. It is so sleek and almost adds a bit of decoration to a room if used correctly.
It has a Multi-Colored, bright LED screen that displays all the modes, speed, oscillation and even current temperature.
The buttons are all conveniently located on the top of the fan for easy access, and they are all clearly labeled and easy to use.
The beauty of this fan is that the top command center has a space just to keep the remote. It is so simple, but so genius. The remote has not been lost yet. It has got to be a record for me.
There are 3 distinct modes(airflow patterns) for sleep, relaxation and comfort. There are also three speeds(low, medium and high). They are all great, and even on low this has more cooling than our box fans used to on high.
What I really love is that even on high, this fan is super quite. That is very important to me. I have loud fans, especially to use at night. I am a very light sleeper and if the fan makes too much noise(or any noise that is not soothing) I will be kept awake all night. A tired mommy is a cranky mommy, and that makes for a bad day for everyone.
We usually use it on high n the comfort setting(which is the more consistent breeze pattern). The oscillation is fabulous with a full 90 degree range, and when we have it in the living room we usually use that. The fan is used in the master bedroom most often though, and hubby keeps it fixed on the bed(where he watches TV in addition to sleeping).
This is probably one of my husbands favorite possessions. I know that he would not be able to go without it now that he has experienced it. The whole family adores it. Both kids always love to stand right in front of it and feel it blow on them.
My daughter loves it most of all, and she thinks it is hers. Daddy was at work and brother at school the first time I tried it, and she played in front of it all day. She gets mad if anyone uses it in her presence(another reason it is usually in the bedroom. When my son stands in front of it, she will actually scream like he is taking something from her or something.
I will probably get a couple more so she can have one for her room, as can my son. They are certainly worth it. This is by far the best fan we have ever had. I know it will last for a long time. The fan is so solid and well made. We used to replace fans every year, it will be so nice not to have to do that.
Even more importantly, it is sturdy. I don't have to worry that it will tip over and hurt one of my kids. The box fans were always falling over, even on their own(no one even had to be in the room), which is the the main reason we stopped using them.
Once again, Ozeri has blown me away(pun intended) with their fabulous products. I highly recommend this fan or any Ozeri product to anyone looking for high quality items at an unparalleled value.
