Ah Mardi Gras season in Louisiana...
20 degrees in the morning, 70 degrees in the afternoon....
You're not the only one who is major league confused-
your central air and heat unit is doing double duty non-stop!
But I have a great product to share with you that can help alleviate some of that wear and tear
in these pre-Spring warm days!
Meet the Ozeri 360 Oscillation Tower Fan:
Looks sorta harmless and ineffective, doesn't it?
Remember, looks can be deceiving!
This slim (but tall) fan really packs a wallup, especially with all it's great features!
The Ozeri 360 Tower Fan oscillates at 60, 90, 120, or 360 degrees, you choose, for partial to
complete air circulation with 3 whisper quiet speed settings.What that means is you choose how MUCH air you want in any given certain area. And the fan moves at just the right speed while oscillating to really cool the air down. This fan is super quiet,even on the highest setting- that is one thing about ceiling fans that bugs me- when they are on high, they all tens to make noise, and I can't sleep well with one over me! Not this fan! It actually has over 200 staggered micro-blades to generate airflow at the lowest possible noise factor- you almost don't hear it at all!
Check out the LCD screen that is really easy to decipher, right out of the box:
8-hour timer that can be programmed in 30 minute increments! It also has an on/off button. All of the features are controlled by the included extended range remote control and the fan control buttons on the top of the unit.
I love it's sleek design that actually takes up less space, and doesn't require desk or other piece of flat furniture! The cord has a decent length to it, thought I do wish it had about another 4 inches of length due to where my plus are behind furniture, but overall it's decent. A cool feature is that the remote fits INTO the base unit on the top back- it has it's own shelf, so you never have to ask "where did the remote go?" again! How neat is that?
This fan has been pretty amazing! It has cooled down a decent sized bedroom, by about 10 degrees within about 40 minutes. That may not sound like much, but when it's hot and humid, that is the difference between being comfortable and 'ugh it's too hot in here'! I love the sleep mode- it is whisper quiet and I actually prefer sleeping with it on versus the ceiling fan. My only problem is we have tall beds and I have to put the fan up on something, in order to actually feel the air ON you while sleeping! Miss Grace's old step stool for the sink does quite nicely! LOL
This fan is quick to use- it just requires hand assembly of the fan base- wrap the 2 pieces around the cord and slot in the 3 included screws, and you're done. They aren't supposed to require a screwdriver, but I found using a dime made them easier to set and screw in one handed!
What is NOT one handed though, is putting the battery in the remove control. The remote control comes in it's own package with the battery, but NO instructions on how to open the battery tray. SIGH- I killed not 1, but 2 nails right before the crowning, trying to get it open. I finally remembered how a game remote had opened, and tried that technique and it worked:
You have to squeeze and pull at the same time, and then tray will open. Be sure to place battery the correct way (indent into tray), or you will have a hard time getting tray back open (hence broken nail #2). But other than that issue, this was an amazingly quick set up and use! You really don't need the instruction book, but it is included.
Overall we LOVE this new fan, and it will definitely help reduce the strain on the ac units, by cooling down rooms, when a full ac isn't needed!
Check the Ozeri 360 Oscillating tower fan out and you'll agree with us too!
