Comparing floor fans and box fans.

The differences between floor fans and box fans.

If you want to save energy or you don’t have central air or a portable air conditioner, then fans are a great way to cool down the house with minimal energy usage. A box fan is a type of floor fan that creates a strong current of air focused in a single direction. Most fit well in doorways while small box fans can conveniently rest in a window, depending on the shape of the window.

A box fan works well for creating a cross breeze. You can place a window box fan on one side of the room to bring air in while a floor fan near a door or window on the other side of the room sends air out. You might also place a box or floor fan in a corner where it can move air through the center of the room. If power sources are limited, you can use an extension cord to maneuver your fan wherever you’d like.

There are some other types of floor fans to choose from. An industrial floor fan is a great option for large spaces or for drying paint, damp walls or floor finishes. Though you can find many adjustable-tilt floor fans, oscillating floor fans are less common, but you may enjoy one depending on the arrangement of your space.

Deciding between a floor fan or a box fan.

Floor fan models generally have a few basic features, such as adjustable speeds. As far as settings go, 3-speed floor fans and box fans are the most common types available. If you are having a hard time deciding on the best floor fans for your home, you should consider the amount of noise a fan makes and the space it will take up in the room.

In general, the more powerful the fan and the higher the speed setting, the more noise it will produce. Industrial fans are generally quite loud because of the powerful current of air they create. Filter your options based on certain customer ratings to see what customers say about fan noise for specific models.

To add more options to your space, you should also consider investing in other fan types as well, such as table and portable fans or window fans. If you experience some days with an unbearable amount of heat, you might benefit from looking into how to choose the best portable air conditioner for your home, which is much more affordable compared to central AC.
