The Best Portable Cooling Fans

June 27th 2019

There are many benefits to portable cooling fans; they are incredibly versatile cooling devices which can be used in a number of different settings. Larger cooling fans are great for use in factories and warehouses as they can be used for air movement purposes; moving dust and steam alongside cooling the air. Their smaller counterparts can also be used in commercial environments such as in shops and offices.

Unlike air conditioning units, cooling fans don’t require ventilation so they can be used almost anywhere. Depending on the size you choose they are suitable for use in factories, warehouses, workshops, offices, gyms and retail environments.

Portable cooling fans are great for first time users as they are relatively easy to use and manoeuvre. The fan you choose can depend on a number of different things. Before you can choose a cooling fan, it is necessary to assess your environment, so you know what you are looking for.

You must make sure the size of the fan is correct for the space; for example, you don’t need a large industrial fan in an office setting as the cooling duty will be too high and the fan could be noisy and disruptive. You can calculate the cooling duty you require based on the size of your working environment, the number of people in it and the amount of heat producing appliances present. Once you have worked this out you can move on to selecting the best portable cooling fans for your needs.

Office Turbo Fan

For office or domestic use, an office turbo fan is a great option as its sleek design means it is both portable and versatile, yet still has excellent cooling performance. It can be floor standing or placed on a flat surface, which is ideal for an office setting where desk space is limited.

Power Fans

A power fans is designed for use in commercial and industrial settings. It is fully portable and has an adjustable tilting fan body. It provides high performance cooling and can also be used in factory settings to move around dust and steam.
