It’s summer in Chicago. This year, it’s hot and humid and miserable. The Lasko Twist-Top Tower fan makes everything much more bearable, however.
I’m not a huge air conditioning fan – no pun intended. I don’t crank the temperature way down, but this year things have been tough because it’s been far hotter than normal. While I do my best to stay cool by not cooking inside and by keeping my blinds closed as much as possible, my air conditioner is still having a hard time keeping up. Fortunately, I have a portable and effective solution.
The Lasko Twist-Top Tower Fan is tiny. When I first heard “tower’ I was expecting something a few feet tall. Instead this oscillating fan is just over a foot tall, but it does just fine for me. I love that it is so simple, actually. It comes fully assembled – a plus for me – and has just two buttons. One button turns it on and reduces the speed as you keep pressing it, and the other turns the oscillation on and off. Brilliant, no? Interestingly, the tower is split into two sections, one atop the other. You can move them so that they blow the same way at the same time or twist them in different directions so a wider area is covered by the breeze.
I placed it near my feet as I worked, and it kept me very comfortable. The breeze wasn’t so strong that it disturbed the items on my desk as I worked, but it did plenty to keep me from having to take a break to stand in front of the open fridge. And since I sometimes have it on the floor to keep my feet and legs cool, I’m happy that the fan blades are completely contained within the housing of the fan. There is no worry that my cats or that the wee ones are going to get fingers stuck, something I not so proudly admit I did as a child.
And yes, this fan truly is portable. It’s really light and compact, so I can put this room fan anywhere. I have moved it around several times, from my desk to the kitchen to the family room and more. The little handle in back to carry it around just makes it that much easier. It really encourages me to just move the fan around with me rather than having a fan in each room.
I have several different fans I use, but none is a desk top fan because the ones I’ve seen before tend to be too noisy or they don’t oscillate. For $30, I love what Lasko has come up with for their new room fan. It’s relatively quiet, so I’m not distracted by the noise, and for as little air as it blows on the lower speeds, it’s really effective. Even better? Lasko claims that you can run the fan for less than $0.02 per hour. Now that’s worth exploring!
