Fans are a smart option when you’re looking to achieve a comfortable temperature without putting a chill in the air. Whether improving the air quality at your desk, in a room or in an entire house, Ace Hardware has several different floor and ceiling fan sizes and models to circulate the air and cool any space.
When talking about air circulation, traditional box fans often come to mind. And while they are typically the least expensive, box fans are somewhat limiting when it comes to directing air. For more control over the angle and range of air flow, pedestal fans allow users the ability to adjust their height and range of oscillation.
Connecting the indoors to the outdoors, window fans can function in one of two ways according to your needs. Reversible fan blades allow these units to expel warm air when spinning in one direction. Then, with a flip of the switch many units will spin their blades the other way to draw cool air in. Since these units fit directly into a window opening, they take up no floor space.
If floor space is a commodity, but leaving a window open isn’t an option, tower fans are a logical solution. With a narrow, vertical design, tower fans can easily fit into the corner of any room. Built to oscillate or remain stationary, tower fans allow you to target your breeze at a specific location or expand it to cool a much larger area.
Fans are a great alternative to air conditioners if you’re looking to save money on your energy bills or you’re sensitive to blowing, cold air. Since there are so many options when shopping for a fan, visit your neighborhood Ace store for more advice or check out our guide to buying a fan.
