When looking for the best tower fan, remember to take into consideration what features are important to you and how they’ll affect your fans ease of use. These best tower fans go beyond featuring just 3 fan speeds and automatic oscillation. They’re equipped with timers, remotes, air purification systems, and a few models even have flashlights built into the remote in the event of power loss in the home.
