Oscillating tower fans provide a practical, efficient and stylish way to cool your room. While conventional standing fans take up large floor space, tower fans generally have a smaller footprint, even when oscillating – the tower simply rotates on its base.
Unlike desk and pedestal fans, the tower fan’s upright design circulates a long column of air around the room, for fast and effective cooling. Using more advanced technology, tower fans are also able to offer many additional functions and features over their traditional counterparts.

Most Important Features of an Oscillating Tower Fan
Fan Speed Settings – Most tower fans have a minimum of 3 speed settings, while some of the best oscillating tower fans offer 9 levels of cooling. For more customizable cooling, opt for a model with a greater number of fan speed settings. Depending on where you want to use your fan, it may also be worthwhile considering tower fans with specialised functions, such as eco (energy saving), sleep, breeze and relaxation.
Thermostat – Taking the guesswork out of climate control, some oscillating tower fans feature an adjustable thermostat. When set to the temperature that you require in the room, the fan will automatically speed up or slow down to maintain that climate.
Timer Function – A timer function allows you to program the fan to automatically shut off after a set length of time. Timers vary between models, but can allow the fan to be programmed for up to 12 hours, in hourly or half-hourly increments. The timer function is ideal for use at night, as it can be programmed to turn off after you have gone to sleep.
Ionizer – Tower fans with built-in ionizers purify the air that they circulate, by removing airborne particles, such as dust and pet dander. These models are particularly useful if you or your family suffer from allergies or asthma.
LED Display – An LED display makes it easy to select and see what mode the fan is in. LED displays can be multi-coloured for extra clarity, touch-sensitive for sleek operation, and may also display additional information, like room temperature. Some tower fans even feature adjustable lighting levels on their control panels, with auto-dimming for night-time.
Noise Level – The best oscillating tower fans feature noise reduction and noise cancellation technology. If you intend to use the fan in a bedroom or office, look for a model that is rated at around 50dB – that’s the equivalent of normal conversation or the background noise of a quiet suburb and should not disturb your sleep or work.
Remote Control – Most models come equipped with a handy remote control, allowing you to change speed settings from your seat. Some tower fans come equipped with an enhanced-range remote, offering even more flexibility. To keep your remote safe when not in use, look for a fan with a built-in holder or storage.
Carry Handle – For additional portability, some tower fans have a recessed or integrated carry handle. This makes moving the fan from room to room much easier, especially if you’re carrying the unit upstairs to keep the bedroom cool at night.
Power Cord – Standard power cords for oscillating tower fans range from 6 to 6.5 ft. This cord length is more than adequate for most households – tower fans are so slim that they will, pretty much, fit anywhere in your room.
