As Spring approaches our customer’s have started to look into their different ceiling fan and portable fan options. Like ceiling fans there are a wide variety of portable fans available on the market. They have fans starting at $20 all the way to $800, so what is the difference? Materials, motors, styles, quality and brand names are effecting these price points.
So how do you find a decent fan with out breaking the bank? I myself have fallen victim to the cheap plastic Target fan, multiple times. These fans are made of cheap materials and are manufactured quickly with only the bottom line in mind. After throwing out many of these, I finally stepped up and bought quality, the new Arden by Fanimation. It has been fantastic! Quiet, reliable and stylish! The nicest portable fans by far are made by Fanimation. They are stylish, reliable, well-made and complete with a lifetime guarantee. These fan’s cores are all solid cast with soldered grills. They have traditional reproductions along side modern industrial fans. Here are some of my favorites: The Arden, Old Havana and Fitzgerald. The Fargo is by far their most specialized. This was originally a banker’s fan, designed to sit on your desk and blow air at you without moving anything on your desk, including paper!
Have you ever longed for a breeze while relaxing on your patio? You might think that you are out of luck if you have an open patio or a fabric awning. Not anymore, Fanimation also makes a portable ceiling fan that goes in the center umbrella hole of your patio table. What an ingenious idea!
