Hot Bedroom or Living Room? These are the Top Fans To Cool Your House

Get the ideal air circulation and quality indoors.

Product in this article

Everyone wants a cool home, but not everyone wants an air conditioner. Enter the fan. We all know the big role of a fan at home and how important it is to have one that performs well and lasts long. 

Affordable for everyone, fans have come a long way in the past decade with new up-and-coming designs, including air-purifying and bladeless fans. 

Do fans actually cool a room?

Contrary to popular beliefs, fans do not actually cool a room. What it does is create kinetic energy by moving the air around, giving the illusion of a cooler room. This is able to cool a person’s temperature, but not the room. However, there are ways to utilise fans to lower room temperatures.

Tip 1: If the room you are in is hotter than the outside, face your fan towards your room to allow the cooler air to flow inside. If you have another fan, face it in the opposite direction. This way both fans work together to allow hot air to flow outside and cool air to flow inside.

Tip 2: Place a bowl of ice or or a towel soaked with cold water in front of the fan to let cooler air circulate the room.

Here are the best fans of all kinds you can get:
