Family Friendly Fans to Cool You Down from the Summer Heat

Photo by graur razvan ionut.Summer has definitely arrived!  Where we live it’s mostly rain all year, so having almost a month of no rain and pure heat is a huge change on our bodies.  Don’t get me wrong I love the sun and heat, but we are just not use to this type of weather.  Hardly anybody here has air conditioning in their homes or pools in their back yards to cool off.  So finding relief from this heat wave is sometimes not so easy.  Not to mention the humidity makes it feel like we are all walking around in a sauna!  So what have we done to get through this heat wave in our very hot home?  Lots and lots of fans!  Some work great, and some not so much.  The thing I worry most about is my very adventurous toddler, that likes to go around “discovering things”.  I make sure all the fans that he could stick his little fingers in are not at his reach.  We looked into many types of fans and created a list of our favorite family friendly fans.  If you have used any please comment below on your thoughts of how well they performed.


1. Lasko 2551 Wind Curve Platinum Fresh Air Ionizer

This 3-speed oscillating tower fan is 42.5” in height and has an energy saving timer.  It also has a fused safety plug.  This type of design also helps save space in small homes.

2. Ozeri 3x Tower Fan (44″) Noise Reduction Technology

This fan features three pre-programmed airflow patterns designed to foster sleep, relaxation and comfort with 90 degree quiet oscillation for optimal air circulation.

3. Dyson Air Multiplier AM07 Tower Fan

This fan has an air multiplier technology that requires no blades and you get no choppy air. It is also Energy efficient, Engineered to create powerful airflow using less energy and can be controlled by Remote control.  I love that the worry of a blade cutting little fingers is gone with this no blade fan!

4. Lasko AC600 Air Logic Bladeless Tower Fan

This fan uses fresh ion technology and an easy click system that gives you easy access to the permanent washable filter that can be vacuumed or rinsed.  Has a remote control.

5. Dyson Air Multiplier AM06 Table Fan, 10 Inches
This table top fan  has Air Multiplier technology.  Air is accelerated through an annular aperture, drawing in surrounding air to project a high-velocity cooling airflow.  And no worries about fingers getting cut as it is a blade free fan.
