Best Pedestal Fan

With so many pedestal fans to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you? You might start by taking into consideration where the fan will be located. For example, if you need a pedestal fan for a large family room, make sure the model you choose is large enough to move the air from one side of the room to the other. You should also check to see if the fan runs quietly so it doesn't interfere with conversations or your favorite TV show, its maximum height, and if it oscillates back and forth.

The directional louvers on the front of the fan move up and down, as the fan oscillates to move large volumes of air across the room. This oscillating pedestal fan features a multifunctional remote control that allows you to change the fan speed from across the room. It also features an electronic timer that automatically turns the fan off up to 7 1/2 hours from the time you set it.
