Even if your home or office has central air, a fan can be super useful, and if you’re looking to conserve floor space, tower fans are a great alternative to bulkier oscillating options. Tower fans offer a sleek and modern design that won’t interrupt the flow of a room, and while they offer different types of airflow, many consumers are beginning to see the benefits of investing in a tower fan.

Dyson Pure Cool

Dyson products can be aspirational for some, and a necessity for others when it comes to home electronics. On the higher side when it comes to tower fan price points is the Dyson Pure Cool. Not only is this a cool-looking tower fan, but it comes with some neat features, like an LCD display that shows infographics about the air quality of the room, a breezeless air filtration mode, and a remote control that magnetically sticks to the top of the device—making it harder to misplace.

Our favorite feature of the Pure Cool is the auto clean function, which, when enabled, sits in standby until its sensors determine that air filtration is needed. At this point the Pure Cool turns on, scrubs the air through its HEPA filter, and automatically turns off again. While this fan is a cool option when it comes to features, it lacks on air output. If you want more power, it might not be the right pick for you.

Pros

  • HEPA filter

  • Automatic air filtration mode

  • Magnetic remote

Cons

  • Expensive

  • Low air throughput

Honeywell HYF290B Quietset

Lots of settings and decent wind speeds are the champions of the Honeywell Quietset, but when tested at a distance, our testers found the wind output to be lacking. Quiet at lower speeds, this tower fan is a good option for people who like to sleep with a fan next to their bed and appreciate a little white noise.

Though the Quietset seems like it has cheap build quality, it does stand on its own, and the quality isn’t the headline with this tower fan as a whole—especially when it’s at a lower price point than other tower fans on the market. Our testers call this a decent fan at a reasonable price, and we’d recommend it for closer distances or smaller rooms.

Pros

  • Decent wind speeds up close

  • Lots of speed settings

Cons

  • Felt somewhat cheap

  • Wind speed falls off over distance

Dreo Tower Fan

The Dreo tower fan comes with a remote control, but unlike other tower fans on the market, the noises associated with this remote can be muted. A large LED display is quite bright but when sleep mode is activated the LED will turn off automatically after 20 seconds, affording users a restful night’s sleep.

The auto mode setting is our favorite feature of this tower fan, and adjusts wind velocity depending on changes in temperature of your room while 90-degree oscillation ensures greater cooling coverage. This tower fan stands at 42 inches high and offers six speeds that operate within normal, natural, and sleep mode, making this a versatile tower fan for rooms of any size. Cooling multiple rooms is made easier because, at 9.6 pounds, it’s easy to move the Dreo fan between rooms.

While we love the options associated with the functions of this tower fan, the remote range has its limits, and users must go through settings completely to get to their desired setting because of the lack of a decrease button. The Dreo tower fan is available in two versions: standard and smart Wi-Fi. But the differences between the two are really just that the Wi-Fi version works with both Alexa and Google Home services to keep your smart home cool.

Pros

  • 90-degree oscillation

  • Lots of speeds

  • Optional Alexa and Google Home integration

Cons

  • LED is bright when not in sleep mode

Lasko Portable Oscillating Tower Fan

With a history reaching back over 100 years, Lasko is a well-known name when it comes to home products, and if you’re looking for a tower fan with more than basic capabilities, the Lasko oscillating tower fan might be the pick for you. A six-foot cord makes it easy to use, even in homes with limited power outlets, which is good considering this fan weighs more than others at 15.5 pounds. This tower fan’s remote control includes oscillation, speed, and timer controls, making it easier to enable the nighttime function from the comfort of your bed. Said nighttime function automatically decreases fan speed and dims control lights, sending you off to dreamland without the worry that you’ll wake up to gusts of cold air on your face.

Though this tower fan has three fan speeds, users comment that the remote control sometimes lags, and that airflow may not be powerful enough. Similarly, some have had issues with their oscillating function becoming less reliable after a year. One important feature that many users dislike about this tower fan is the inability to disassemble for cleaning.

Pros

  • Quiet

  • 7.5-hour auto-shutoff timer

Cons

  • Lacks airflow power

  • Remote control may lag

Ansio Tower Fan

The Ansio tower fan offers just over 5.5 feet of cord, allowing users to plug it in wherever it might be best utilized. A 7.5-hour timer can be adjusted to 30-minute increments, and the three oscillating speeds offer three separate wind modes in a 60-degree radius.

Users comment that this tower fan is quieter at lower settings but can be a bit loud at higher speeds, and find it frustrating that the beeps from changing settings can’t be muted or adjusted for volume, especially when used at night. Sufficiently powerful but light at 8.8 pounds, this tower fan stands lower than others, at 30 inches high. We’d recommend using this fan in a bedroom or small office.

Pros

  • Timer setting

  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Loud at high speeds
