The advantages of using an oscillating floor fan include ease of placement, increased cooling, remote operation, a timer and adjustment features. Oscillating fans rotate from side to side, which gives them the ability to cool a room quickly because of how the fan distributes the air in the room.
Oscillating floor fans provide portability that users value with the option to move the fan from room to room with ease. These fans are generally lightweight and can distribute cool air over large areas. This type of fan also provides better cooling as a result of the oscillating feature. The fan rotates, which helps circulate cool air around the room more effectively than stationary fans.
Many oscillating floor fans have an adjustable pole and face. Adjusting the height of the pole and the face of the fan allows users to direct the cool air easily. Additionally, most oscillating fans have a useful remote control feature. Remote control operation allows users to operate the fan easily while lying in bed or sitting down in front of the TV. These fans also have a timer feature, which allow users to select a preset amount of time for the fan to operate. When the time period ends, the fan automatically shuts off.
