Game Changing Fan
from San Diego
About Me Casual Do-It-Yourselfer
Comments about Vornado 41" Tower Fan:
My boys' bedrooms are really hot, and regular fans help but they blow straight streams of air. This fan moves air evenly throughout the entire room without the feeling of air blowing on you. I hope they hold up well
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer
Greatly improved air circulation throughout my house and has made an impact on my electric bill. The high setting is the only one I use, the others seem to lack the power of the high setting.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY !!! See a demo first
By fooled again
from Orange County California
I actually thought i was buying the best but was i ever mistaken ! I live in a small mobile home and set this in my "living room" and instantly discovered how utterly worthless this unit is. It's only "quiet" at the lowest speed at which it doesn't put out ANY air volume either! At any of the higher speeds you have to be sitting directly in front of the unit and it's so loud that you can't hear yourself think!! This is the 41" LARGE unit too. I was expecting much more. I hope i casn take it back for a complete refund because it is a TOTAL waste of money and a complete piece of garbage. Extremely dissapointed !!
Small, reliable powershouse
Very happy with Vornado my Grandmother had a Vornado window fan many years ago and they are still awesome today

Bought better at a garage sale
By Cody J. Tarr
About Me High-end Shopper
I use the product personally in one room. It looks amazing but it doesn't work as it says. only blows in one direction.(an oscillation would work better). I have another fan that has around 2 times the power for under 2 times the price.

Control button broke.
By Joan the teacher
from South Dakota
I loved this fan when I got it a year ago, to cool my sunroom, where the dog sleeps. I have no a/c in there, (nor do I want it), but when the afternoon sun hits there, I used it to cool it down. It worked GREAT. But now the knob on the control broke, so I can't change fan speeds. I will be calling the company to see if they can replace it.

About Me Budget Shopper
This was one of my best buys. I live in an upstairs apartment in the desert. My apartment faces directly east, so I am in direct light from 6am to about 4pm. As quaint as it might sound, under 110 degree summer days--it tends to be unbearable (especially since my apartment is upstairs, and heat rises). I bought two oscillating fans, and a ceiling fan (so my energy bill from using my a/c wouldn't be over $200 again). Turns out they really didnt help. I bought heavy drapes, and still didnt work. My only other option was to board up the windows with 2in foam insulation. I was dreading doing the insulation because I didnt want my apartment to look sketchy; but I was willing to take the risk. I was at a home improvement store walking around, and seen a customer with the Vornado tower fan in their cart. I asked her about it, and she said that it was the second one she bought. Not because it didnt deliver the job, but because she loved it so much, but so she can have one downstairs as well. So I ended up buying this instead of the insulation. I was so glad that I did! The assembly was simple, the design is so sleek, and the power of it completely replaced all three fans I previously bought. I have it in the corner of my living room, and if I leave my bedroom door open, I can feel the air flow coming in or vice versa. This one fan replaced the $400+ fans I had invested in. Buy this fan. Great bang for your buck.

really helps in the garage in Texas
By hot in texas
from spring tx
About Me Quality Oriented
postitioned the tower to cover a wide area in the garage. Once circulation is established (bout a minute) cooling is very nice. Really like not having the back and forth of an oscillating fan.Only problem is the REMOTE, and I use that term loosely, the first remote worked only within 2.5 feet, Vornado set a replacement that only works withiin 1.5 feet of the unit. Working with Vornado to get a real remote. At high speed its a little load, but it sets 10 feet away so not bad, plus it is usually set on speeds 1 and 2 which are great. If the remote problem gets resolved highly recommend it.

Noise & Vibration
from Toronto, Ontario, Ca
After installing both fans behind "Air Swiss" humidifiers to encourage humid air to circulate the room both fans started to vibrate and produce quite a bit of noise. I took the fan apart and traced the noise to a piece of spring wire use to hold the fan angle when directed to a specific angle. I made a hold down for this wire and the noise stopped. This was simply bad design and I hope the manufacturer will look to correcting this flaw in all further products
