For this post, I have put together a collection of the best tower fans currently available.
UPDATED: August 9, 2019.
These fans offer the ability to create air movement and provide filtering in a space. Depending on the model, the speed is variable so you can set your desired flow. Also some versions offer oscillation to provide for a larger coverage area if needed.
