In my family we do not have the habit of sleeping with air conditioning at night, we are looking to get additional standing fans for both day and night time to place at the various corners around our house without a good wind flow.
The service yard, bomb shelter, as well as my child’s lower deck bed, are the areas where we will need help with getting more cooling wind going.
Considerations in a standing fan
The things that I will be looking out for in a standing fan will be to have a stable base, so as to reduce the risk of a falling fan. In the open areas where my child is free to access, it is best for the standing fan to come without any blades.
