What to look out for when buying a fan?

If the fan above didn't tickle your fancy but you're still on the hunt for a fan, use these helpful pointers below to buy the best one for your specific needs.

Consider the fan's power. A higher watt doesn't necessarily mean it'll spin faster, but it may sound louder. Size: some fans are made to be popped on a desk or other surface, while others are standing. Think about where you'll be using it the most. Some fans boast up to 10 different speed settings. If you're after something with a lot to choose from and are fussy, it's definitely worth considering this feature. But then again, three functions should do just fine... The average noise output of a fan should be around 40 to 50dB. Buy one any louder and you're risking being woken up at night. Timer? Some fans will work with a timer to switch off so won't be on all night. Can't find that feature? Invest in a smart plug or timer to do the work for you.
